Ecolux Brazil Real Estate
This villa, which is designed by architect Marcela Tavares, is built over two floors, using natural and renewable material, on a plot of 1,073m² bordering the beach.
The overall ideas behind the design of the houses was to merge indoor and outdoor living and provide a strong connection with the surrounding landscape while at the same time make the least possible impact on the environment. The result is open plan architecture with few internal walls and extensive use of glass for the external walls. The villas enjoy lots of natural light and large volumes with high ceiling heights and open space allowing the different areas of the house to naturally integrate.
The main entrance to the house is via a large glass veranda with comfortable lounge furniture and from which you have amazing views of the beach, tall palm trees and the sea. Further inside, you will find a separate dining area, a large kitchen and living room with double height glass walls with doors opening out to the private pool. The ground floor also host 2 of the three bedrooms.
A beautiful staircase leads to the mezzanine floor and the spacious master bedroom with separate dressing area and ensuite bathroom as well as a private balcony.
The veranda floors and much of the interior floor is made of garapa wood, a Brazilian hardwood that is naturally resistant to rot and naturally scratch resistant, making Garapa a perfect wood for both interior and exterior use.
The floor in the kitchen and dining areas are high quality Brazilian tiles.
The house, which features a total living area of 256m², is sold fully furnished with custom made furniture in exotic woods such as Angelin Pedra, Cumaru and Pau d’arco. The chandeliers are all handmade, produced by artists and artisans.
