7 hectares of private land | 1km of coastline | Extensive 11-bedroom property enjoying direct sea access | Exquisite panoramic sea views | High level of privacy | Tennis court | Garage | Prime location of the Costa Brava

This magnificent first line estate to buy is amongst the Costa Brava's most famous and exclusive coastal properties. Located close to the beautiful bay of Tamariu in the heart of one of the most sought-after areas of the Costa Brava, the property is set in 7 hectares of private land with 1km of coastline. From the air, from the sea or when you arrive by land, the house and property will immediately contradict some of the usual expectations. It stands with its view over gardens and pine trees to the sea over a vast expanse of the Mediterranean.

The house itself is interesting and has many associations since it was built in 1928 by the grandparents of the present owners. The Architect was Nicolás Woevodsky, a Russian exile and one of the most important architects of his generation. The property is described as "Californian Colonial" in Josep Pla's famous "Guide to the Costa Brava".

The estate has been owned and enjoyed by the same family for three generations and has never before been offered for sale. Over the past 85 years it has been used as a private family residence but has also been frequented by an impressive list of celebrated guests including Sir Winston Churchill, who stayed at the house as a guest of the original owners in 1935. Al Gore also stayed at the house after his defeat to George W Bush in the US Presidential Elections whilst Nobel Prize winner Nadine Gordimer has also been a guest at the property. The house was also used as a film set for the 1958 British thriller "Chase a Crooked Shadow" starring Richard Todd and Anne Baxter.

The house enjoys a southerly aspect and commands breathtaking views of its own private peninsula, the Mediterranean Sea and the surrounding coastline. With 70,000m2 of its own land the estate enjoys complete tranquility and a high level of privacy. An outstanding feature is its 1km of coastline - making it one of the Costa Brava's largest sea front properties.

One can quickly access the sea via the various private pathways and tracks leading through the gardens from the main house (suitable for cars as well as by foot) and swim in sheltered waters below the house.

The house consists of a large drawing room leading to an upper terrace and galeria area with wide views out to sea, a library, and 7 fine bedrooms with 5 bathrooms. There is also a large dining room and spacious kitchen area. On this floor is a beautiful interior patio from which you access the main entrance. A further wing, known as the Casita, has its own dining terrace, 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and kitchen. All rooms face the sea while the dining terrace of the Casita looks over the bay of Tamariu.

On the grounds is a tennis court, garages, a pavilion near the sea, a bathing hut and boat ramp. The whole estate is a haven for writers and painters for its beauty and privacy but it is also a wonderful place for families and children of all ages.

This is a special opportunity for a buyer to acquire one of Spain's most important coastal properties.
