Off Plan Development - Buena Vista Park Villas
About Buena Vista Park Villas
Buena Vista Park Villas Having been built on the historic site of the Buena Vista Battery, Buena Vista Park Villas is a very unique development and a first in Gibraltar. The sold out phase 1 of Buena Vista Park Villas development offered the exclusive collection of executive townhouses and detached villas with gardens, solariums and swimming pools. Phase 2 of the development will see the conversion of the historic stone block building into a number of different properties and phase 3 will further comprise a combination of town houses and villas. Formally the headquarters of the Royal Gibraltar Regiment, the site has a long and established history dating back to the late 1700’s and many of the original features will be carefully restored and preserved for the new development. The developers of Buena Vista Park Villas have a philosophy of client customisation, a concept to ensure that your home is built around your needs and requirements. Buena Vista Park Villas will also incorporate modern and environmentally friendly technology such as solar panels for heating and modern insulated materials to ensure lower utility costs and a reduced carbon footprint. Investing in this exclusive gated community makes perfect sense. On top of offering continental views across to Africa and Europe, the development is set within the quieter and highly sought after South District of Gibraltar. Buena Vista Park Villas are located only 10 minute drive away from the airport, the frontier and the main town centre making everything in easy reach. The aim behind the development is to achieve timeless elegance in a natural and historic setting that families will be pleased to call a home.
About the location
The pace of life for residents of the South district is relaxed, far from the madding crowds, although still boasts some of Gibraltar’s most popular tourist attractions. For beachgoers, Camp Bay (known to locals and Rosia) and Little Bay are ideal. With seawater swimming pools and easy bathing access, along with restaurants and kiosks, the day can easily be spent there unwinding. Europa Point is the most southerly point of Gibraltar and is where the Atlantic meets the Mediterranean (the “Strait of Gibraltar”). Boasting stunning views across to Africa, this is where you will find the Trinity Lighthouse, the Sikorski Memorial, Harding’s Battery, Shrine of our Lady of Europe and The Mosque. The Alameda Botanical Gardens offer a little bit of serenity and greenery. Established in 1816, the gardens home stunning flora and fauna, including rare and indigenous plant species. They also boast an outdoor theatre, guided tours and, if you’re feeling romantic, a perfect venue for your wedding. Adjacent to these gardens is the Cable Car. Built in 1966, the cable cars travel up the Rock at a speed of 5 metres per second, making the overall travel time approximately six minutes. Military history is never far away. Parson’s Lodge fortress was perhaps one the most strategically important places in Gibraltar due to its position over Rosia Bay (which, was also the Bay that Nelson’s body was brought ashore on The Victory). Lovingly restored, the fortress is a must for any military enthusiast. Similarly, the 100 Ton Gun at Napier of Magdala Battery is a treat for anyone interested in military weapons. The Trafalgar Cemetery holds the remains of those killed in sea battles, most notably those of the battle of Trafalgar.
