This dwelling not only stands out for its beautiful architectural lines, wonderful ocean views, and functionality but also because, along with the neighbouring villa, they are the first certified PASSIVE HOUSE dwellings in the province of Cadiz.
The term Passive House, much extended in Europe, combines specific architectural and building criteria designed to streamline the dwelling’s energy consumption resulting in a 90% reduction of the electric bill.
This optimization has been achieved mainly by taking into account the most ideal alignment relative to the sun, the light, and the best ocean views; as well as reinforcing the sealing and insulation of the home using the highest quality materials for all windows, doors, and walls of the building. The concept Passive House is a synonym for Exceptional Quality, environmental protection, and outstanding energy savings. Constant and pleasant temperatures are maintained throughout the year with practically very little use of conventional heating and cooling systems.
In this home special emphasis has been placed on accessibility making it possible to reach the entire dwelling via traditional stairs or ramps, thus eliminating the expense of installing a lift.
The functionality of this house is not at odds with design as is evident in the use of different materials such as steel handrails, beautiful wooden banisters, exposed brick, floor to ceiling doors, etc.
The home is distributed on three floors. The basement floor has a two car garage and a space designed for a gym, with showers and adjoining locker room; and two rooms destined for a spa and a massage chamber. The telecommunications panel and the laundry area are also on this level.
We reach the first floor through a ramp or a staircase. There is a spacious living room with amazing views. This area leads to a fantastic porch and is open to the kitchen. There is a sliding glass panel that closes up the kitchen when desired.From the living room you can also reach a half bath and the master bedroom which has a dressing room, bathroom, and access to a terrace.
The second floor houses four bedrooms, two of them with ensuite bathrooms and a shared bathroom for the other two. Three of the bedrooms have ocean views and access a terrace.
