Set in the dreamy village of Mellieha, in the most sought after area of Santa Marija Estate, is Villa Blu – a peaceful oasis away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Santa Marija Estate is the ideal location for anyone wishing to enjoy his own privacy, while still being close enough to the main town, where the hectic clamor of day to day life is ever present.
Villa Blu is located on a tranquil road, with ample parking space in its spacious driveway and adjoining garage. Upon stepping out onto the driveway, the imposing grandeur of the Villa makes itself present – from the large planters adorned with Malta's endemic cactus plants, to the colossal facade and entryway, which seemingly greets you into another world. The towering main door, adorned with blue touches, wherefore the Villa's name originates, welcomes you into a cool space, from where the Villa's bedrooms emerge on each side.
The first bedroom one notices is a double, artfully decorated in muted tones with subtle hints of colour, with an outdoor space leading into an internal courtyard. Another double bedroom can be found across the hallway, a gargantuan room, tastefully adorned with high-end pieces. This room comes complete with an ensuite bathroom fully bedecked with bath-tub and shower for that extra added comfort. Further along the hall one finds an additional bedroom equipped with two single beds. The fourth and final bedroom sleeps three persons in its three single beds, while two family bathrooms can be found on this floor, both equipped with showers. All bedrooms are fully air-conditioned and 3of them feature an outside area leading onto the main internal yard, perfect for a nightcap or for enjoying a cool evening breeze. The main attraction on this level is surely the indoor pool area, complete with sauna for the ultimate spa experience. Being on the ground floor, this level remains cool even during the warmest times of the day, making this an ideal sleeping quarters for the notoriously hot Maltese summers.
Up the stairs and onto the first floor, you find yourself into the modern, contemporary space which is the open plan living, dining and kitchen area. With floor to ceiling windows all around the space, the outside is brought in for further embellishing the already elegant décor, flooding the area with natural light. The open plan area is decorated using subdued neutral tones, with smart pops of colour to further enhance the contrast, mirroring the vibrancy of the world outside the windows and the calm neutrality of the inside. The contemporary kitchen is fully bedecked with dishwasher, making preparing home cooked meals a breeze. The dining table complements the neutrality of the room, elevated further by its corresponding ceiling lamp – a four pendant affair reminiscent of Maltese fishermen's traditional netting. The living area features comfortable sofas overlooking the terrace outside, and comes equipped with a flat screen TV. A family bathroom with shower can also be found on this floor. An outdoor courtyard runs along the side of the living and dining area, spruced up by a row of potted cactus – a theme which also resounds with the cactus artwork found in the dining area. One also finds another front door in the living area, for easier access from the outside of the Villa.
The terrace is a splendid area, of which the L-shaped swimming pool takes the main stage. The pool is a great refreshing way to stay cool in the summer, while also providing a dazzling visual interest on the terrace. An array of sunbeds is also readily available for the essential top up of one's tan. The terrace is surrounded by greenery, ensuring maximum privacy and seclusion from neighbours and the outside world alike. A convenient BBQ area ideal for al fresco dining is located just off of the pool area, giving you a practical and appealing new way to enjoy your dinners.
Villa Blu is ideal for anyone wanting to enjoy a haven of peacefulness and privacy, without relinquishing opulence and comfort.
