A magnificent 2,5ha estate just metres from the beach in the lovely bay of Aiguafreda on the Costa Brava. The perfect project for an investor looking to create one of the region's standout private luxury homes.
This unique and exceptional coastal estate is located overlooking a stunning cove just a few kilometres from the sought-after town of Begur on Spain's Costa Brava.
The estate is one of the region's largest and comprises 2,5 hectares of prime coastal land, a main house of approximately 660sqm, a separate staff house of 120sqm, a swimming pool with changing room and magnificent gardens with easy access to the lovely cove of Aiguafreda.
The grounds, originally spectacular botanical gardens, were created in the 1920s by a wealthy local businessman and played host to many high society parties over the ensuing years. The gardens are still well maintained and boast a number of elegant statues, sculptures, fountains, terraces and shaded seating areas from which to enjoy the privacy, tranquillity and superb sea views.
The main house was constructed in the early '70s by the celebrated Catalan architect, Josep Pratmarsó and offers a wonderful balance of interior and exterior spaces. Whilst the overall structure is in good condition, the property is in need of complete internal renovation. The staff house, located by the entrance gate to the estate, also requires full renovation. Local planning regulations prevent either property from being demolished though there should be the possibility of increasing the existing build size by approximately 15%.
The estate is situated in stunning, tranquil surroundings just a minute's walk from the beach and a few minutes drive from the emblematic bay of Sa Tuna and the beautiful hilltop town of Begur.
Construction on the surrounding land is strictly forbidden, ensuring that the property will always retain its privacy, tranquillity and natural surroundings.
This is a rare opportunity for a buyer to acquire one of the Costa Brava's largest and most beautiful estates in what is regarded as one of the Spanish coasts most sought-after and unspoilt areas of coastline.
