This Villa has been referred to as the “White Pumpkin” and has an interesting origin story. It’s based on the redesign of an unfinished reinforced concrete skeleton, and the initial structure controls not only the roof pitch, but also determines the visible concrete framework of the space in the living room. The stunning appearance of the architecture is molded with a white ceramic mosaic and is separated by two terraces that open the house to the breathtaking view outside. Likewise, we found that the orange at the entrance and the base create colorful accents. Wood finishes are afrormosia wood.
There are two spacious bedrooms that can sleep four adults, and two smaller bedrooms that sleeps up to four children. The upstairs master bedroom has two large balconies with stunning views and the children’s bedroom can be reached through this bedroom. On the ground floor you will find the guest bedroom. The other bedroom has a bunk bed and is considered most suited for children. A large terrace surrounds the home and leads to an infinity pool with a deck, a whirlpool, and two outdoor showers. There is also an inner court at the back with zesty lemon trees.
