The village of Los Gigantes is renowned for its magnificent cliffs rising 800m directly out of the ocean.
Gulls nest in the crevices and sea eagles swoop from their heights to snatch fish from the sea. Even the occasional wild goat can be spotted on the precarious ledges. Imagine such a magnificent sight as the backdrop to a luxury home.
But this is not the only appeal of one villa at the far end of Calle Tabaiba, one of the smartest streets on the western border of Los Gigantes.
The front aspect is imposing enough but even that gives little clue to the presence of the paradise that lies hidden behind the large electrically controlled gate.
A pathway sweeps down past the garage to a secluded lagoon with tropical trees providing a welcome shade from the midday sun and inviting further investigation of the exterior.
The garden area offers a burst of colour as a greeting from the tiled BBQ area where many a good get- together may be enjoyed. Through the trees are two detached out-houses now in use as an office and a workroom, but they would also be ideal as extra guest studios.
From there the view is breathtaking. Beyond the inviting heated swimming pool lies the Atlantic Ocean stretching out from the dramatic cliffs with their ever-changing colours. On the distant horizon lies the island of La Gomera and, on a clear day, the twin humps of La Palma.
A pergola also offers welcome shade over the lawned terraces directly in front of this amazing home. The terraces are furnished exquisitely, with tables, chairs, loungers and a sofa swing.
It is difficult to move away from such an idyllic setting, but even more delights await inside the house.
Space is the keynote of the glass-fronted open plan lounge, dining room and kitchen, all offering those spectacular cliff views, and all fitted with electric shutters.
The entire area has been designed and decorated with an African theme of which a feature working fireplace takes centre place. A high ceiling, pitched and lined with wood, along with the wooden floors, help to complete the exotic safari theme.
The immaculate kitchen contains every conceivable accessory, including a steam oven, finished in stainless steel with granite work surfaces and glass units.
The whole is reached through an impressive main entrance, with a cloakroom in the hallway and the sense of openness is continued within the unique, air-conditioned bedroom suite, with its partitioned wall separating the bedroom from the en-suite bathroom and a consistently high standard of decoration.
A staircase leads to further accommodation specifically created for the comfort of guests and totally self contained.
The lounge has its own private terrace and American-style kitchen and each of the two double bedrooms offers its own en-suite bathrooms.
As a home this truly splendid villa offers everything that may be desired, perfect privacy, delightful views, comfort and style.
Added to this is the convenience of being able to invite friends to stay in their own, self-contained luxury.
For such a treasure the asking price of £1,250,000 is a snip.
