Villa Blakstad Gertrudis
Villa Blakstad Gertrudis is a stunning luxury villa nestled in the countryside between Santa Gertrudis & San Mateo. Set against a backdrop of lush Mediterranean gardens and deep blue skies, its secluded surroundings offer absolute peace and tranquillity. Recently built following a signature Blakstad design, the villa has five en-suite bedrooms set over two floors and large, open-space living areas – all impeccably styled and decorated by the owners with unique pieces and personal touches. 5,000m2 of the 15,000m2 property is dedicated to a beautifully landscaped Mediterranean garden that sprawl with lush vegetation and fills the air with the scent of flowers and aromatic plants. A shimmering pool of deep turquoise runs along the length of the house, beautifully framed by the surrounding gardens and emerald, pine-covered hills. As you step into the living room, you are welcomed into an airy, stylish space flooded with light. The thick white walls and stunning Sabina roof are unmistakable features of traditional Ibiza architecture, whilst the high ceiling windows are a modern feature that adds light and brings the bright blue sky inside. The room opens out through large, sliding glass doors onto a spacious outdoor living area and down to the pool and garden beyond, creating a dynamic space that flawlessly brings the exterior indoors. Many unique pieces, collected from around the world, can be found throughout the villa, such as sculptures, wall hangings and the living room’s music-themed chandelier, made from saxophones, disco balls and lots of bling.
