Welcome to Casa Lavanda, a truly special residence that beckons you with its undeniable charm and exquisite craftsmanship. As you ascend the artfully crafted stone stairs, a one-of-a-kind hand-carved wooden doorway adorned with vibrant bougainvillea drapery welcomes you, setting the stage for the extraordinary beauty that lies within.
Step through the fairytale entrance into the reception area and prepare to be transported to a world of old-world glamor reminiscent of Hollywood’s golden era. The grandeur unfolds before your eyes, with a handcrafted iron spiral staircase, elegant marble floors, along with a breathtaking bespoke gold-plated “Collier” chandelier, created by renowned designers Anne-Marie Midy and Jorge Almada, co-founders of Casamidy, taking a year to complete.
Casa Lavanda exudes warmth and invitation from the moment you arrive. This is a place that truly feels like home, offering the perfect balance of relaxation and entertainment.
The grand reception area seamlessly transitions into a luxuriously designed lounge, featuring a cozy fireplace and luxury pieces from Casa Armida and Namuh that invites you to unwind and indulge. An adjacent formal dining area sparkles with another shimmering “Collier” chandelier, showcasing exquisite woodwork and sliding double glazed doors that reveal a stunning downstairs terrace overlooking a meticulously manicured garden. Step onto the covered terrace, surrounded by lush hanging plants, and immerse yourself in the harmony of indoor/outdoor living. Here, an expansive wooden dining table awaits, along with a dance/cinema area complete with a projector.
From the formal dining area or the garden terrace, you’ll discover the heart of Casa Lavanda—the light-filled and spacious kitchen and breakfast/informal dining room. Designed to inspire tasty delights, this culinary haven boasts top-of-the-line Kitchen Aid appliances, a quartz stone island and countertops, and a beautiful glass dining table accompanied by Casamidy’s iconic “Opera” side chairs.
Adjacent to the kitchen lies a convenient and spacious utility room, offering ample storage space, top of the range washer and dryer, and private access to the three-car garage, garden, and an outdoor half bathroom.
The ground floor also presents a generous en-suite bedroom, currently transformed into a dream playroom for children. Ascend to the first floor, where you can choose between the exterior staircase adorned with green vines or the interior handcrafted spiral marble stairs, leading you to an immense TV/cinema room, inviting you to gather loved ones for cozy movie nights.
Explore further, and you’ll discover two large en-suite bedrooms, with one boasting its own private terrace and stairs leading to the garden and roof terrace—a tranquil retreat to enjoy a morning coffee or relax in a hammock while basking in the evening’s warmth with a glass of wine.
On the opposite side of the cinema room awaits a master bedroom fit for royalty. This sanctuary of opulence enchants with its expansive bathroom, featuring a rain shower and an elevated jacuzzi bath complete with a wall-mounted TV. A stylish vanity area, a private gym, and an immense his and hers walk-in closet with an additional dressing enclave complete the master suite.
