Perfect for sunshine and views the landscaped grounds and extensive terraces overlook a jacuzzi set on a cantilevered platform, an infinity edge heated pool, a spa deck where 2 sculptured mosaic beds enjoy panoramic views to Africa from within the heated multi jet pool. A stainless steel channel sends a cascasde of water from the spa into the pool while a stream falls through the garden behind the covered barbecue area.
It’s quite incredible what you can see from the many terraces of New Aloes. Panning around from south to north you will see the Rif Mountains of Africa, Gibraltar’s former Royal Naval Hospital, the coastal fort of Parson’s Lodge Battery, Rosia Bay and finally the 1884 built Napier of Magdala Battery, home to Gibraltar’s 100 Ton Gun. Meanwhile directly opposite is the southern coastline of Spain.
A spacious kitchen with amazing views over the 2 terraces towards Spain and Africa. Units are from Porcelanosa and appliances from Siemens and Bosch to include integrated fridge, freezer, oven, professional gas hobs, teppanyaki grills, cylinder island hood extractors and a microwave and coffee machine, with a further fridge freezer and washer and dryer in the adjacent utility room. The vast 7.6 metre long all in one preparation-dining island is Krion – a next generation solid surface that is two-thirds natural minerals combined with high resistance resins to provide anti-bacterial qualities, durability, heat and fire resistance and ease of cleaning.
Clever use of space means that the 115sqm of space is divided by a smokeless, odourless bioethanol fire sunk into a black granite floor. The raised dining area has a beautiful English oak floor while the living area is Travertine marble with under floor heating. A quiet library/study area is separated from the living area by sliding glass panels.
This multi level property has bedrooms distributed throughout to ensure privacy. The ground floor hosts two en-suite bedrooms, just a few steps away from the cinema room and with terraces that have a viewing window to the pool. The first floor has 2 further self contained bedrooms, sharing a bathroom and adjacent kitchen/living area; located ideally for use as a staff apartment. The second floor offers three final bedrooms, two lovely en-suite rooms for children or guests and a master suite with panoramic views, a rotating super king bed, walk in wardrobe and an open wet room.
The luxury en-suite Porcelanosa bathrooms include under floor heating, stand alone baths, ceiling rain showers, heated towel rails and marble shower trays with glass and stainless steel surrounds.
With 580sqm of landscaped grounds and 400sqm of terraces on different levels New Aloes provides a haven of tranquility in an oasis of plants, shrubs and flowers – a rarity in Gibraltar. A black river stone waterfall flows through the garden towards a thatched Tahiti style chillout bar. Below is a circular two level pool with jacuzzi effect jets surrounded by a raised deck and a cantilevered viewing platform. This pool connects via a shallow stream to the main infinity edge heated swimming pool which has remote operated colour changing LEDs and water jets. Shade is provided by an ancient olive tree. Up on the second floor a spa terrace with heated spa pool containing sculptured mosaic beds with hydro jets facing perfectly southwest for the African sunsets. A stainless steel channel sends a cascade of water tumbling into the first floor pool below.
