The Villa Shambhalla lies in a zone of undisturbed tranquility amongst the pine forests and with dramatic views over the medieval village of Cervo and the Dianese Gulf. Its position is absolutely dominant, on the top of the ridge and has been chosen for the spectacular quality of its views on the first hill of San Bartolomeo. The entrance to the villa is through a wide entrance court yard, dramatic and panoramic. The house itself is a fantasy of architects and craftsmen using natural elements of stone and fine materials to counterpart the beauty of the panorama. From the open space living room which is the core of the building, enormous glass windows gaze over the sea, dramatically modern and with ultra luminous interiors. The house is in a state of transition towards its final completion allowing the maximum flexibility for the transformation of its 215 sqm of currently open space into finished family home. The top floor is currently with living room, kitchen, bathroom and two bedrooms which have been temporarily placed to allow the sleeping quarters to ultimately be transferred to the lower floor which is currently open plan. Above the living room has been constructed a panoramic tower, to be used as a solarium, but the option as to whether this should be united with the expansive living area with a spiral staircase or by an external staircase has been left to a future purchaser's discretion. The entire house has been predisposed with all essential water and electric connections to allow a problem free transformation.

The garden itself is equally theatrical, using fine stone walls, a curved white staircase and with planning consent for a panoramic pool inset into the immense green of the fine lawn, around the property is a large expanse of Mediterranean macchia, wild, perfumed and full of flowers , with no other houses inside the view, utterly private and under green policies in Liguria incapable of being developed. The garden has a large shed inset into the wall for storing garden equipment. The systems of the house are equally state of the art, using solar panels and multi compatible systems to power the house.

The house is in a protected zone for the environment. The ancient town of Cervo dominates the horizon. Its coral church is dedicated to the coral fishermen who through historic times have fished the reef. It has always been a natural centre for musicians, artists and poets. The area is one of wide sand beaches and coral reef. Nearby Diano Marina is a touristic centre full of wonderful restaurants and bars. The house is 15 minutes drive to Alassio, undoubtedly the artistic, cultural and elite residential center of the zone.
