When dreaming of an Italian getaway few places ignite the wanderlust in the heart of a true jetsetter like the gloriously chic island of Sardinia; its northeastern coastline, the Costa Smeralda in particular. Adored by the superyacht set for its clear aquamarine waters, pristine white sand beaches, colorful villages and dramatic limestone cliffs as well an unparalleled offering of luxury amenities and experiences, this Mediterranean hotspot is a dream destination for luxury real estate.
Situated in a serene bay just northwest of Oblia, on a stretch of pristine seafront property is a strikingly modern villa that delivers laidback luxury and the latest home tech all with a sense of understated opulence and precision in forward-thinking design.
Epitomizing the very best of indoor/outdoor living, this sublime villa has been thoughtfully designed to evoke a sense of connection to the enchanting natural surroundings by utilizing organic colors and textures and “frameless windows” that stretch from floor to ceiling and walls that can disappear into each other.
The posh interior is imbued with a modern Scandinavian esthetic creating a warm and welcoming vibe from the natural stone and wood for an ambiance perhaps best described as high-end “hygge”.
Just off the lounge is the open plan kitchen with sleek minimalist lines softened by the rich walnut of the custom cabinetry. Unobstructed views of the picturesque bay can be enjoyed from virtually every room in the house and preparing food from the generously sized island is no exception.
Dining around the oversized formal dining table will be a feast for all the senses with vanishing walls that leave nothing but a fresh Mediterranean breeze between you and the grand natural landscape sprawled out before you.
After a dolce of creamy panna cotta saunter to the outdoor sunken lounge to savor the digestivo con caffe or a brisk limoncello alfresco. The earthy color pallet and seamless design of the stone seating make for a dreamy and relaxing perch from which to take in the glorious panorama.
For an invigorating dip in the sea you can make your way down to your own private sandy beach. Should you prefer to remain on land the sparkling waters of the scenic pool offer a refreshing respite and plenty of room for lounging on the sundeck while basking in the warm rays of the midday sun.
A bedroom should be a sanctuary and here is your chance to commune with nature while luxuriating in bed. The floor-to-ceiling glass walls are carried into the bedroom, flooding them with light to jump start your day with a burst of energy. In addition to the four main double bedrooms and five bathrooms, the estate includes a double bunk room perfect for kids as well as a possible staff room with a separate bathroom.
From the glass walls welcoming nature indoors to the bespoke sunken tub which has the appearance of having been seamlessly carved from the earth itself, the beautifully designed bathrooms make a statement.
This 4,660 sqft seaside retreat is not far from Porto Cervo, the beating heart of the storied Costa Smeralda and the pinnacle of luxury tourism. Host to regular sailing regattas from the Sardinia Cup to the Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta, Porto Cervo is also host to the annual Tavolara film festival and a vintage car rally.
For true yachting enthusiasts, Sardinia is a highly sought-after destination to own a home and this newly built waterfront villa in Porto Pozzo is the perfect opportunity. Offered through Sotheby’s International Realty for $9,533,345 (€8,500,000)
