Inspired by the serenity of its natural setting between mountains and sea, Takara is a select collection of ten luxurious modern villas that redefines the concept of stylish living on the Costa del Sol.
The project takes its name from the Japanese for treasure; a precious jewel called ‘Yasakani no Magatama’, which symbolises the ascension of a new emperor on the day of his coronation. Takara finds inspiration in something so rare and beautiful, for it reflects the thinking behind our desire to create exceptional modern homes.
TRANQUILITY, NATURE AND CONVENIENCE
Takara lays where verdant undulating countryside greets the sea on one side, and hills that rise to the Sierra Bermeja Mountains on the other. Its setting is the country club of Estepona Golf, where the greenery of golf courses merges with that of nature. Though sandy beaches are a short distance away, this is a peaceful, natural spot whose beautiful sea, golf and country views are accompanied by birdsong.
BLENDING NATURE AND ARCHITECTURE
Each individual villa at Takara is designed with tall, double-height ceilings and full-length windows to create bright, luminous living spaces that let in views of the surrounding nature. Specially selected quality materials offer a visual and tactile delight while bringing sophisticated design to life.
A sense of space and wellbeing
A Takara villa blends contemporary style and spacious open-plan living areas to create a modern home endowed with the latest technology and colour schemes that draw inspiration from the natural environment.
Let the sliding doors glide open and your elegant interior living spaces are extended outwards for refinement and style in the open air, with spacious open and covered terraces featuring large format marble tiles in anti-slip matt finish that overlook the pool and garden.
Enjoy indoor and outdoor sophistication
YOUR PRIVATE DOMAIN
The master bedroom on the first floor is a personal suite featuring a private terrace with the possibility of having your own Jacuzzi – a luxurious extension of your home’s private domain. It offers a delightful space in which to take breakfast, relax, sunbathe in privacy and also enjoy gorgeous views across the greenery of your garden, the 18-hole course of Estepona Golf, the natural surroundings and of course the nearby sea.
Luxuriate in your own retreat
Sound insulation and windows that block out ultraviolet light ensure you can enjoy these views as well as being assured of peace and privacy in what has been designed as your own pampering retreat.
PAMPERING AND PRACTICAL SPACES
Two very important parts of the master bedroom suite are the bathroom and the dressing room, for they make it stand out in terms of quality and features. The master bathroom therefore offers clean, contemporary styling in combination with fine quality materials such as top-of-the-range ceramic tiles, elegant modern sanitary ware by Geberit and raindrop showers that create a wonderful sensory effect.
Designed for your convenience
The dressing room is similarly designed to combine practicality and style, with expert carpentry ensuring that drawers glide, clever use of space allows you to keep your clothes and accessories in style, and attractive lighting and finishing, making this a quality feature in your home.
From the carpentry of the dressing area to the quality materials used in the bathroom and the stylish glass railing of the terrace, your master suite is a comfortable private domain.
21ST CENTURY COMFORT AND LUXURY
Takara villas are smart homes that incorporate modern technology to optimise comfort, style, functionality and energy-efficiency. Everything is designed to make your villa the ideal place to call home.
This applies to the advanced building techniques and materials, which ensure optimal heat and humidity insulation with such features as high-tech air ventilation and air conditioning systems, under floor heating and hot water using Altherma heat pumps.
The villas also come with pre-installed home automation that further enhances the convenience and efficiency of heating, LED lighting, security and related systems.
A NEW GEOMETRY FOR THE KITCHENS
The kitchen reflects this marriage of technology and design, using SieMatic kitchens from the Pure Style collection fitted with Neff appliances to create a contemporary look whose elegance of form produces a new yet timeless geometry.
It is a delightful interplay between the pure, linear forms of the kitchen and the different textures of its various surfaces, and here too, form and functionality complement one another in a modern space that is aesthetically attractive and interacts with the open-plan living areas.
NATURAL FORMS AND CONTEMPORARY LINES
A clear design philosophy built around a lifestyle concept, along with painstaking attention to detail, has produced an architectural style in which clean, modern lines combine with a white-toned Mediterranean palette that contrasts beautifully with the deep greens and blues of Takara’s surroundings.
Natural forms inspired by the gorgeous setting within Estepona Golf merge seamlessly with landscaped private gardens in homes where light, space and views are among the outstanding features.
Designed to enchant
The intention has always been to create an exceptional living environment and the best that Estepona has to offer, so Takara villas are the contemporary embodiment of a privileged lifestyle in a beautiful setting between mountains and sea.
GRACEFUL DESIGN DETAILS
The quality, style and refinement inherent in the architectural design and the finishing of the Takara villas also incorporate many details that help to make this such an outstanding project.
Our experience tells us that it is the detail that creates the difference between good and excellent, and it is both in aesthetic and practical details that the Takara villas set a new standard for luxury living on the Costa del Sol.
As a result, a Takara villa stands out for its design and quality, so a great deal of work has gone into sourcing the finest Iroko hardwood security doors, large-format anti-slip terrace tiles, infinity pools (second phase only) featuring natural saline purification systems, elegant hardwood stairs, sliding doors that glide effortlessly, modern glass banisters and double-glazed, anti-glare windows that block out UV rays.
Also included in the price are a choice of colours for the swimming pool, different floor finishes and three kitchen options to choose from. Brought together with style and a knowing eye, these elements produce modern villas of exceptional quality.
PROFESSIONALLY LANDSCAPED GARDENS
Though configured as individually gated homes, the private gardens of the Takara villas are professionally landscaped by the designer Mathieu Lèbre of LEMA Paisajes, who have created a beautifully balanced Mediterranean environment that envelops the homes with its aromatic greenery.
The trees, plants and flowers used have been chosen carefully, not just to respect the indigenous vegetation of the region, but also taking into account the southerly orientation, prevailing winds and microclimate of Takara’s location some 75 metres above sea level.
After a detailed study of the local conditions, a selection of indigenous species was chosen to create a beautiful garden landscape that not only blends in with its natural environment but is also water-efficient and perfectly suited to local conditions.
The gardens of the Takara villas are therefore made up of manicured lawns framed by cork oaks, olive trees, carob trees, cypresses, apricot trees, citrus trees, pomegranate and almond trees, fragrant flowering herbs and shrubs such as lavender, thyme and mint, to name a few. Arranged together in a complementary ensemble, they create the perfect Mediterranean setting for your home.
ADD A BASEMENT LEVEL TO YOUR TAKARA VILLA
The Takara villas provide the option to include a lower level to expand the property to a total of three floors, thereby increasing the built area by 188 m2 and enabling you to add the amenities you want. The options can be highly personalised – from creating your own gym, lounge area, spa, indoor pool, wine cellar, entertainment room or extra accommodation to a choice of five different designs and configurations for your lower floor.
All the versions include a common area, three English patios with natural light and one bedroom and bathroom, but the first option features an office, an extra bedroom, spa, wine cellar and storage room, while the second option has a second bed and bathroom, home cinema, storage and kitchenette for those who prefer a different configuration. A third choice is more spa-orientated, with a sauna, steam shower, gym, outdoor patio shower, a wine cellar and storage room. The fourth version includes a maid’s bedroom with en-suite bathroom, spa and storage room, while the fifth option comes with steam shower and spa, a home cinema, wine cellar and storage facility.
Adding a third level expands the square metre space in your Takara villa and gives you the freedom to create your o wn uniquely configured and styled space in a personal combination of lifestyle, sport and/or accommodation amenities.
