Off Plan Development - Plata Villa
About Plata Villa
Plata Villa Located on the site of the old St. Josephs Middle School in Withams Road, Plata Villa is an exciting new development consisting of twenty-two 1, 2, or 3 bedroom apartments. Set in the highly sought after South District, this development will be built to the highest European standards, technology and quality. The existing school house will be converted into four colonial style apartments that will retain many of the original features, such as the high ceilings, whilst also benefitting from a renovated exterior. In addition to this there will be fourteen new build two or three bedroom duplex apartments, all of which will include either a lovely garden area or fabulous roof terrace. There will also be four one bedroom apartments, all of which will come with a unique sun terrace. Each apartment will boast a fully fitted contemporary Omega kitchen, inclusive of all appliances, fully fitted bathrooms with a double sink and Porcelonosa sanitary wear, heated towel rail and designer mirror. The apartments will feature engineered wooden flooring throughout the bedrooms and living areas, as well as intelligent dual air conditioning and ventilation. Charming modern fitted wardrobes will also be included in the bedrooms along with stainless steel electrical outlets, switches, TV and telephone points, adding to the style and elegance of the development. In order to reduce the carbon footprint of the development, and utility bills of residents, each apartment will come with powder coated double glazed aluminium windows and thermal solar water heating. Residents can also enjoy the summer days in their private decked and landscaped garden areas, or tiled roof top patio areas, with many enjoying the stunning views of the Bay of Gibraltar. Each two or three bedroom apartment comes with a double parking space in the underground car park, whilst the one bedroom apartments come with one parking space. All three bedroom one bathroom apartments also come with a two bedroom two bathroom option, giving residents the option to personalise their homes. The development was sold out at launch although resales may be available prior t completion in late 2016.
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.
