Casa Almare en la revista Design Ways Numero 138 de Diciembre del 2011
Located on one of the most beautiful beaches in Jalisco, this residence is designed in a contemporary Mexican style. The house perches on a cliff next to the ocean, which influences its particular shape allowing for amazing views to Bahía de Banderas.
The bedrooms and public areas, all with views of the ocean, are spread over four and a half floors. This exceptional property features a blend of natural elements, including exotic woods, stonework and tropical vegetation, embedded in the lush mountainside and set against the picturesque backdrop of the Pacific.
Accessed through an impressive entryway, the main level is home to a secured parking garage, wet bar, powder room and terrace. Setting the tone of the villa, the view of the ever-changing palette of coastal waters is nothing short of breathtaking. The second and first floors each comprise two massive guest suites, with expansive ceilings, walk-in closet, flat screen TV, bathroom and private balcony.
But perhaps the most alluring feature of each suite is the exclusive dipping pool on the terrace. A stainless-steel elevator and an open-slab marble stairway provide access to all levels. The master suite hosts a tantalisingly secluded outdoor rain shower and direct access to the expansive infinity pool. With fixtures imported from Italy, the kitchen has exotic Brazilian granite countertops and top-of-the-range appliances.
A communal gathering place for guests, the impressive main level great room flows onto the luxurious outdoor sundeck and infinity pool. The distinctive deck is constructed of brushed marble, resulting in a lighter colour and non-slip surface. The infinity pool is lined with marble tiles and is heated by solar panels. Other notable features include a water purification system, sliding glass wall panels and a smart system which can be remotely controlled by phone to activate the air conditioning, lighting, alarm and sound system. A double entry gate, security system and safe ensure peace of mind.
