Our home

This home was designed by us in 2005 following an old dream to "live under a crystal pyramid open to the skies". The result is a square house of 20x20m open to all sides to a golf course and a modern shaped garden (2000m).
A 12m pool is connected with the house through a decorative canal with a fountain. All rooms are open to the central patio with the glass roof (6x6m) providing the impression to live in the outside. An innnovative ventilation system provides an excellent climate not requiring airconditioning.
The patio is surrounded by a woden gallery leading to open terraces around the house from where you can enjoy the lovely views to an exiting landscape (20 km to the sea, 30 km to the snowcapped Pyrenees in the South of France) while sipping your sundowners which arrive from the kitchen in a special service lift.
Of course, the home is equipped with the latest state-of-the-art in Kitchen and Media.

Our home has 4 bedrooms with 3 bathrooms and 1 WC, all furnished and decorated in minimal art.

Without seperation the garden leads into a fairway of the famous golf course of Torremirona (www.torremirona.com)

One of the great moments of the day is laying in one of the large hammocks looking into the bright sky (the area is wellknown for its good climate and clear skies) during day or night.

In total, the house offers the rare mixture between luxury, leisure, nature and artwork (I call it "living wellness").

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Our home is situated in an urbanisation (24 hours security guard). Golf club, first-class hotel, tennis courts and a wellness-center form part of this urbanisation together with around 80 homes. Hiking- and Bic-trials start right at the corner. Diving, sailing, parachuting and all sorts of beach activities are in the reach of 20km.

The neighbours are international, most living here the whole year. English is the current language, even spoken by the attendants on the site.

Torremirona is situated 7 km from Figueras on the countryside. The city is wellknown for its Museum of Dali, the most important painter of surrealism. This spirit of experimentation of the Catalan people is still found in the local cuisine, represented by Adrian Ferran, elected 2005 as the best Chef-de-Cuisine by an American weekly Newspaper.
Medieval villages, idyllic beaches, and two protected natural parks are located in a radius of less than 50 km.
Airports are in Girona (30min), a hub for low-cost flights to most European capitals, and in Barcelona (90min) for overseas.
