Sea-View Apartment near Cefalù, in Private Estate with Panoramic Pool
On the ground floor of a beautiful villa at the eastern tip of the exclusive Residence Giardini Torre Conca, an exclusive, newly built private estate overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea, Appartamento Platani is a stylish, elegant flat with a floor plan of 90m2 and an expansive private terrace.
With communal use of a state-of-the-art sea view swimming pool (shared with only five other apartments), as well as 10,000m2 of communal land (divided between 18 residential units), this sea-view apartment near Cefalù will be a hotly contested opportunity to buy into one of the most exclusive communities in the region.
The villa is newly built, in a timeless Italian style, and Apartment Platani is a sea-facing property opening directly onto a terrace and garden, planted with cacti and other typical Mediterranean greenery. Directly below you is the 15m swimming pool and deck area, blending harmoniously in with the surrounding hillside.
The internal space is divided into a ‘day zone’ with a large open living room-diner and an adjoining kitchen and utility room, and a ‘night zone’. In this latter a bathroom fitted with a shower precedes a pair of generously-sized bedrooms, each of which opens onto a glorious, sun-drenched garden and a terrace that wraps right around the property. The larger, master bedroom also benefits from a second, en-suite bathroom.
All rooms are fitted with air conditioning units, and the windows and shutters are modern and energy-efficient. The apartment comes with a private parking spot.
The nearby Torre Conca beach is an absolute gem, with dramatic surrounding cliffs and shelter from the offshore winds. A popular haunt of locals who favour it over the more crowded sands of Cefalù, it is a year-round beauty. What’s more, as a resident of the Giardini Torre Conca Residence, you will have guaranteed access to a private parking space right in front of this lovely stretch of seafront. You can drive the 500m from your property in the knowledge that you will never face the frustration of hunting for a spare spot half an hour’s walk along the coast!
This section of coastline surrounding this sea-view apartment near Cefalù is dotted with similarly exclusive private communities; next door lies the Polina resort. You will find yourself in the company of a diverse range of international and domestic holidaymakers, each prioritising the same blend of style and peaceful relaxation that is so important to you.
The nearby village of Pollina (technically the Residence falls within this municipality, although the winding uphill drive takes longer than the flat coast road to Cefalù is a picturesque gem, with sensational panoramas inland and out to sea. It’s historic castle and remarkable open air amphitheatre attract historians and performers, and we identified it as one of our value hotspots in Sicily in 2020.
The nearby hills rise up into the spectacular Madonie Natural Park, where you can enjoy all manner of outdoor pursuits, from trekking and paragliding to the slightly less frenetic possibilities of popular arts festivals and al-fresco dining!
And of course, the magnificent ‘Pearl of the Tyrrhenian’, Cefalù, is famed for its UNESCO-protected Arab-Norman Cathedral, megalithic sea walls and Medieval old town continue to delight hundreds of thousands of visitors every year.
There is no work that needs to be done to Appartamento Platani, except for the obvious need to fit and furnish it. The advantage, of course, of a new build such as this is that you have a completely blank canvas on your sea-view apartment near Cefalù, waiting for you to add your personal style.
Will you embrace the colourful ceramics and ornate metalwork of a traditional Sicilian décor, or opt for the cleaner lines and polished steel of a more northern style? If you are in need of a little inspiration, we would be delighted to put you in touch with one of the interior designers who have helped many of our happy clients in the past.
You should bear in mind that the condominium fees for this property come in two parts; one for the six unit apartment block within which Platani is housed (which includes servicing of the communal pool and barbecue terrace) and another for the wider Giardini Torre Conca estate. This latter will see a site manager living on the estate, guaranteeing the security of the complex, available to help with any maintenance issues and an invaluable font of local know-how. Exact fees will vary based on the size of your apartment and are still to be calculated, but the developers indicate that the monthly total of both fees will be around the €200 mark.
