A fine example of superb contemporary architecture, this chic newly built beachfront villa features minimalist décor and utilizes clean, pure lines, graced with touches of ultimate luxury. Completed in 2011, four of the eight oversized bedrooms are beach facing, and have lavish slate bathrooms. A large central living/dining/kitchen area with 30 feet high ceilings opens up to the enormous deck; adorned by beautiful Brazilian wood; a two storey custom metal encased fire place and vanishing-edge swimming pool through large high impact sliding glass doors. The property playfully juxtaposes old and new with the main entrance featuring a several hundred year old Indian carved double door within a single-cast concrete encasement. The custom sleek rosewood kitchen integrates antique panels which play beautifully against the large format stone flooring and gray polished Brazilian granite countertop. The exterior of the house is clad in hand-picked coral stone. Accommodations include: 8 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms of 8,000 masterfully designed square feet. The eighth bedroom is currently equipped as a gym. Designed by celebrated architect Antonio Barassi, the owners did not spare any expense and meticulous attention to detail is evident in the finest custom finishes, lighting and selection of technology in this contemporary masterpiece. Simply incomparable. ~~ Bella Vita has been featured in "ATTITUDE - Interior Architecture Magazine" recently and we would like to share these articles with you.
