ABOUT THIS VILLA:

Hollywood Actress Madeleine Carroll was instantly captivated by this whitewashed estate nestled in the hills above Marbella. She fell in love with Andalucia, as did the villa’s subsequent owner, Grammy Award-winning guitarist Glenn Tipton.

Love and care have seen this stately country home transformed into fabulous villa reminiscent of a private castle, full of airy spaces, seven individually designed bedrooms and a separate casita for the caretakers.

The atmosphere inside is classically stylish, yet warm and welcoming. Old antiques are preserved as a nod to the villa’s past, such as the vintage typewriter that one can imagine being used to tap out old movie scripts in days gone by.

it’s hard to draw your eyes away from the magnificent panoramic views that illuminate almost every space with tall French doors and windows.

The living area, library and classic games corner are finished with sumptuous furnishings, perfect for quiet Summer afternoons or jovial Winter evenings around a huge roaring fire.

A balcony looks down over the gothic style dining space, with its antique stone fireplace, a chandelier and bespoke dining table with seating for 12.

The Andalucian style kitchen is spacious and fully equipped for preparation of delicious meals that can be taken indoors or out, and staff can be called upon to assist with the service of light snacks, laying the BBQ or serving breakfast on the terrace.

True to the style of Al-Andaluz, this villa is centered around a cool Moorish-style inner patio with dwarf orange trees and a fountain. Gentle running water takes inspiration from the Alhambra in Granada, offering a space for tranquil contemplation.

The patio gives access into the main living areas of the villa, and also leads to the upper level where all bedrooms can be reached by an internal balcony that gives the air of a small private castle.

You can relax in complete privacy on the large al fresco terrace, where you can enjoy a delicious BBQ for lunch before an afternoon snooze on the circular daybed overlooking the river valley below.

The gardens are ripe for exploring; a little path leads to a secret garden planted years ago by Madeleine Carroll. Here, an old millstone was used by the actress to enjoy her picnics in the Andalucian outdoors.

The private pool is tiled in blue mosaic with two leaping dolphins, and can be reached down a sweeping stone staircase on the lower level of the garden.

The views from the pool are simply breathtaking, embracing the mountain scenery with only birdsong breaking the peace. It is clear to see why the owners of this fabulous villa fell so in love with this place, and we hope you do too.

These villas are located around 10 minutes drive north of Puerto Banus and San Pedro in this private gated estate which rubs shoulders with the world renowned area of La Zagaleta.

This is a very private and secure community that offers an exceptional standard of villa accommodation and is just a short drive from the buzz of the main resorts of the Costa del Sol.

This villa enjoys far-reaching views to the mountains across the valleys, and is just 5km from the nearest shops and restaurants, and 10km to the lovely beach front promenade of San Pedro de Alcantara next to Puerto Banus.
