Inspired by Bauhaus design principles, the Morning Breeze villa sits within Las Colinas Golf and Country Club, one of the most exclusive enclaves in Costa Blanca, on the southeastern coast of Spain.

The property is dominated by a seven metre-high facade and two-storey aquarium-style glass infinity pool, which creates a striking interplay between the indoors and outdoors. The property is the brainchild of architect and multidisciplinary designer Monica Armani, who was involved in every aspect of the build, from the architecture and landscaping down to the pool tiles, lighting and door handles.

Armani wanted to create a space that connects with its environment and enhances the sights and sensations of the landscape around it. The home is currently being listed for $5.7 million by Sotheby's International Realty.

The key details

The three-bedroom residence consists of two independent but interconnected self-contained suites. Each has its own private bathroom and kitchenette, allowing residents to have as much or as little contact with each other as they want.

The highlight of the property is a 240-square-metre terrace with 160-degree views, while a private gym, a spa with a Jacuzzi and sauna, the option of separate staff quarters, and beautifully landscaped gardens all add to the property’s luxurious appeal.

What's the story?

Set within an expansive pine forest in Campoamor on the Mediterranean Sea, Las Colinas Golf and Country Club was named Europe’s Leading Villa Resort in both 2017 and 2018, and was also recognised in the European Property Awards 2020-2021 in the Residential Property and Architecture Single Residence categories.

The resort sits within a 330-hectare valley between hills near the sea, with a championship golf course running through it.

The eco-friendly development favours low-density housing that blends into its surroundings, nestled among indigenous flora, and orange and lemon groves. The project design includes a sustainable development and environment protection plan drawn up by Universitat Politecnica de Valencia. Buyers can also develop their own bespoke villas at Las Colinas.

What the brokers say

"Architect and multidisciplinary designer Monica Armani references the principles of the contemporary Bauhaus movement to create a new breed of luxury property, a unique villa in the Costa Blanca that will sit at the pinnacle of the Spanish luxury property market," reads the Sotheby's listing.
