Stunning Beachfront Estate
Villa La Sata
Casa Bali Sueño is appropriately named for this exquisite Balinese private estate. Designed by renowned architect, Abraham Valenzuela, this home displays extraordinary attention to detail in every corner with amazing finishes and décor making this a true labor of love. The Balinese theme permeates the entire 13,000 sqft estate with 2 small pools along the living room and dining room with 3 additional exterior water features. The 30-foot-high ceilings are in keeping with the style and have been painstakingly constructed from hardwoods hand carved which were worked within the property. Accentuating ceilings of intricate detail are made of various stones and marble. The floors throughout are travertine and all furnishings have been carefully selected to maximize elegant simplicity.
This magnificent sanctuary is situated on a lush 4-acre mountain top with a helipad available and spectacular panoramic views of the ocean, valley and mountains from every room in the house with not a roof top in sight. The four frog-statues that overlook the 60-foot infinity edge stone tile salt water pool add mystery and beauty to a superb ambiance. Sunrise and sunset are among the amazing features of this one of a kind property. The fountains and waterfall create sounds of tranquility to relax along the terrace and pool. The Zen feel has been built into every detail of the house and extends to the amazing gardens blending perfectly into the environment. The majestic, oriental, wooden electronic entrance gate leads into the gardens and stone walkways with over 4,000 plants and outdoor gymnasium. The stone Buddha statues that are tastefully placed throughout the grounds, blend nature and construction into one breathtaking unique property.
With full attention to design, functionality has not been sacrificed in any way. The living room, dining room and kitchen have total integration with the easy-living terrace that runs along the 50,000-gallon pool. The living room, contains a complete home theater with surround sound that is ingeniously tucked away out of sight by a magnificent set of sliding custom made antique doors. Massive wooden pillars provide an open separation between living room and dining room. The thorough attention to detail continues on into the kitchen appointed for the most discriminating of chefs with Viking appliances and a design that allows easy access to the main areas of entertaining. Casa Bali Sueño hosts 4 ensuite, very private, bedrooms with an office (that could be a 5th bedroom). The 1,500 sqft master bedroom suite, with its own large private patio, boasts two huge walk-in closets and large soaking tub made of marble. A separate one-bedroom apartment for guests or caretaker is an added feature.
