It’s the stuff of legends — music legends, that is. An opulent villa in Spain’s La Costa del Sol, once owned by Prince, has been listed by Coldwell Banker Alarcon Premium Estates. Situated west of Marbella in the hills of El Paraíso, the 7-bedroom villa resides amidst beautiful gardens with subtropical trees, and boasts amazing views of the Mediterranean, mountains and golf course designed by Gary Player. No doubt, the villa’s breathtaking location is an inspiring backdrop for a musician, or anyone who seeks out absolute privacy for creative pursuits.
A Villa in Harmony
Accessed by a grand hall with a colonial double staircase leading to the sleeping quarters, the spacious residence encompasses 13 rooms in approximately 890 square meters, or about 9,580 square feet, with a terrace spanning 240 square meters, or about 2,583 square feet.
The ground floor features a modern kitchen, living room, dining room, breakfast area and two guest bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms. The sea is never far away, thanks to the large windows in the living areas.
Upstairs, the master bedroom and three other bedrooms, all ensuite and very spacious, offer terraces and panoramic views over the golf course towards the sea.
Keeping privacy upper most — as Prince was known to do, the villa also features indoor and outdoor security cameras and a security offices. Other accouterments that enhance the property’s appeal as a vacation residence include a heated pool, separate guest/service house, water tanks, electric generator, well, mature gardens and tennis court and garage for three cars.
A Music Legend in Marbella
Prince bought the marvelous villa for his wife, Mayte García, whom he married in 1996 on Valentine’s Day. She was regarded as his true love, and the muse behind his 1995 hit song “The Most Beautiful Girl in the World.” The artist had visited Spain’s Costa del Sol region for work on several occasions and decided to build the villa as a wedding gift to García. He and his wife lavishly styled the mansion with luxury finishes and furnishings. Garcia spent most of her time here. “It’s so relaxed,” she told InStyle magazine in 2000, “We have cats, dogs, birds. You walk into a room and you just feel at peace.” It’s a place where her husband was also inspired to write the song, “The Sun, the Moon and Stars,” from 1999’s Rave Un2 the Joy Fantastic album.
One gaze out to the night sky dotted with a thousand stars from the balcony, and you’ll experience the same sense of harmony that Prince once did. The price is available on application.
