The Italian island of Sardinia is naturally gorgeous, blending a roughhewn mountainous landscape with views of the Mediterranean Sea. This coastal villa makes the most of as much, offering stunning views of the water and mountains from its outdoor swimming pool, as well as through large windows found throughout the home.
Situated on the sea-front, the three-story home is shaped like a pyramid, albeit a sleek, modern, luxurious one. The upper floors hold seven double bedrooms, each with a private bathroom, and all offering views of the sea through floor-to-ceiling glass doors. Those doors open onto spacious terraces, so there's no shortage of space for sunbathing and viewing the idyllic scenery from different vantage points.
The all-white interiors and unusual shape give this home a museum-meets-spaceship vibe—it's counterintuitive to the landscape, but somehow it feels right. Outside, a simple stone staircase leads down to the kidney-shaped pool and a wooden deck, enveloped by flowering plants and the kind of trees that scream Italian island. Surrounding everything, there's a garden measuring a whopping 64,584 square feet, lined with lantern-lit paths and beautiful stone planters filled with cacti.
Another selling point: the villa offers private access to the sea. Moreover, the beaches of Porto Rotondo, a high-end vacation destination touting art galleries and boutiques, are within a few miles, and Costa Smeralda airport is about 10 miles away. The price of the villa is available on application through the listing on lionard.com, where you can also ogle more photos and find out more details.
