The property is located in Bordighera in the renowned and exclusive locality of Madonna Della Ruota, in a position immediately adjacent to the sea and immersed in a flourishing nature consisting of a "banded" garden full of exotic plants, varieties of flowers, orchards and a fantastic swimming pool.
In 1958 two Neapolitan engineers chose this location to design a Mediterranean-style villa, which recalled a glimpse of the wonderful Amalfi Coast.
This is how Villa Malatesta was born, from an extraordinary modernist project and design, anchored to a spur of granite rock with terraces facing the sea and splendid Halepensis pines to create coolness in summer and protect privacy.
The villa was later expanded with a wonderful infinity pool and an outbuilding with 2 apartments from the current owners.
The immense garden and land surrounding the property measure over 12,000 square meters.
The terraces overlooking the sea are spectacular with a view over the entire gulf.
The villa can be accessed through the paths of the magnificent garden or via a comfortable private lift dug into the rock.
The villa is distributed on three levels - ground, first and second floor.
On the ground floor there are rooms that could be used as the caretaker's accommodation, the laundry room, the technical room and a lovely aviary.
On the first floor, the broad living room with fireplace surrounded by a large terrace, the breakfast room, the kitchen, the utility room, the ironing room, the study and two bathrooms.
On the second floor the sleeping area, also surrounded by a beautiful panoramic terrace, consisting of four bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Next to the pool there are two annexes with independent entrances, each with two bedrooms, a bathroom and a living area with kitchen wall. Both have a terrace and sea view.
The large infinity pool is surrounded by a solarium and a terrace for outdoor dining with a wood oven.
A garage, numerous parking spaces and a wine cellar carved into the rock complete the property.
Bordighera is today a pleasant town, not only for tourists but also for residents, who live in a "protected environment" as demonstrated by the wonderful natural places that Bordighera has. The Old Town, the buildings left by the English, the testimonies of the local culture form a complex of considerable historical interest. Bordighera is not just a seaside resort, it is a historical and natural path yet to be completed or, if you prefer, a path where the visitor is free to design his own itineraries letting himself be guided by the great characters (such as Monet, Bicknell, Garnier) who they lived and attended.
