If you like the sound of waves right outside your windows and you are after some wow factor in the summer than this swish luxury villa, ingeniously designed directly on the water's edge on the island Brac, is spot on what you need.
How to best describe Villa Ivy? Great location, panoramic sea views, privacy, top quality, large property with a representative entry and the possibility to experience unforgettable sunsets. A very comfortable place to stay but it's also rich with kind of details that will delight design lovers.
Newly constructed on three levels the villa is luxurious and elegant and has been created using the best of everything, from the striking crystal chandeliers, to the finest stone sinks, beautiful fabrics and contemporary furnishings. Carefully thought out by an interior designer, every attention to detail and comfort has been considered. Built as a family home, a reflection of modern family attitudes, it has large and incredibly light and airy rooms opening on to extensive terraces, partly shaded, comfortably furnished and very well equipped for outdoor living. Created using the finest white Brac stone as seen on the American White House.
Staffed with a house maid and manager who also acts as a concierge, this is a property in which guests can truly relax and be looked after from the moment they arrive.
Individually and stylishly decorated with uncluttered elegance, all the bedrooms open out onto terraces with fabulous views over the bay of Sumartin and the Biokovo mountain range. Cushions, blinds and bedspreads are rich and textured, with silks and materials sourced from around the world. All the air-conditioned bedrooms have Egyptian cotton linens with opulent bathrooms and plenty of fluffy towels to pamper oneself with after a day in the sea or around the pool.
The stylish kitchen has uninterrupted views over the bay and holds all the gadgets needed to make cooking and hosting a pleasure. The living room combines contemporary furniture, artwork and sculpture mixed with antique and vintage pieces from France and India.
Moving to the outside area of the property you will find the stone infinity pool (25 sqm and 1.45 m deep) with stunning views over its horizon edge to the turquoise bay and mountains beyond. The pool has four infinity edges and an endless swimming jet. Being a waterfront property, the villa is perfect for fishing fans who can relax and enjoy fishing from the jetty. The Villa has a mooring for visiting boats and larger vessels can be anchored in the bay or in Sumartin harbour. A boat and skipper can be hired on a daily basis allowing guests to be transported to other islands and to experience a full range of water sports.
Entrance Level – The two master suits can be found off the main entrance hall. Both benefit from full height glass windows giving access to the stunning sea and mountain views. Blackout curtains open to let sunbeams flood the room with warm light. Opposite the bed, the TV screen is linked to the central satellite. Both bedrooms have large private balconies with their own seating area allowing guests to take breakfast or just to escape to their own private domain. The bathrooms are a sublime exercise in understated opulence.
Middle Level – The living room and kitchen open on to an outside terrace area. Folding glass doors allow the floor to become open plan, creating an alfresco living environment. There is the option of dining inside or outside. A glass wine cellar, media room and office can be found on this level.
Ground Floor – Two further en suit bedrooms with patio doors leading out on to the main terrace giving panoramic sea views. A self contained spa with a sauna, steam room and gym can also be found on this level.
Chill at your own private retreat or tear yourself away to the local beaches and villages - this is island living at its best.
