La Rosa de los Vientos Estate
A rare and unique opportunity has arisen to acquire a magnificent 120,000 sq m Estate with unparalleled 360º views of the Mediterranean, surrounding hillsides and distant views to the village of Mojácar. The grounds are planted with palm trees and an abundance of tropical plants, providing its owners with the tranquillity, and the security, so often desired.
The Estate is situated in Andalusia in the province of Almeria, south-eastern corner Spain, within a conservation zone where further building is no longer permitted. It borders the municipality of the historic and picturesque White Village of Mojácar where the sun shines 320 days a year.
The main residence, a 650 sq m Villa, rests at the centre of 2,500 sq m plateau at a height of 100 metres above sea level, with sandy coves on either side. Built on 2 levels the Villa and Estate was designed and supervised by one of the country's leading International Architects who has capitalised the elevated position so as to afford its owners the panoramic views. Designed to capture the Hispanic-Moorish traditions of the province, it is both externally and internally, extremely attractive and beautifully proportioned.
The length of the villa faces south-east and the living room and dining room, and their outside terraces overlook miles of coastline and a vast expanse of sea. The south-side of the Villa is shaded by large palm trees during the sun filled days, and floodlit after dark.
The approach to the front of the Villa is by way of a wide stone terrace with a cactus garden reaching to the walled terrace. This garden has within it an ancient secular olive tree.
Access to the Estate is via a beach roadway leading to the Estate's private 420 metre tarmac road through automatic electric gates, ensuring total privacy and security. The Villa is within easy reach of Mojácar beaches, the village, and all of the many amenities the area has to offer.

The Villa is built on two levels. The garage is underground with sufficient space to house the automatic cleaning and filtration plant for the domestic water supply, the swimming pool, and water pressure system.
