The following is an extract from the villa brochure:
Silverfield Villa is an ultra-modern contemporary property under construction in Granada, Spain. It occupies an enviable position close to the historic city of Granada at the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountain range.
The property is massive, covering over 14,000 sq ft with sleeping for 24 adults and children. Features include indoor pool, outdoor infinity pool, hot tub, cinema, elevated bar, outdoor deck, office, wine cellar and 360 degree viewing platform.
Access to the villa is easy due to its proximity to Granada airport (10 miles) and Malaga airport (60 miles).
The owners of Silverfield Villa wanted to create a Spanish property that was exceptional in every way with the ability to provide an exciting destination all year round. The choice of location was therefore of utmost importance.
The two principal cities of Spain (Madrid and Barcelona) were rejected due to their size, traffic issues and difficulty in locating a site that was spectacular. Many of the guests will originate from major cities, we wanted use of Silverfield villa to be an ‘escape’. The many locations along the coast of Spain were also rejected due to their primary use being in the Summer months and the fact that many of these locations have become ‘Little England’ offering little more than cuisine and facilities transplanted along with the rest of British culture.
Granada offers so much more. It is one of the most historic sites in Spain, the location of The Alhambra and many other prime examples of Moorish architecture. It is also served by the Sierra Nevada Ski Station, an extensive resort offering a long season and one of the best ‘days of sunshine’ records in the world. In addition, Granada is the home of tapas and offers some of the best cuisine available anywhere in Spain.
Proximity to several golf courses, excellent airport links, top class Spanish football, excellent nightlife and live entertainment are all additional reasons why Granada was chosen as the location of Silverfield Villa.
The Sierra Nevada mountain range provides a spectacular backdrop to the location of Silverfield Villa. One side of the top viewing deck provides views towards the 11,500 ft mountains (the highest point in continental Spain) while the other offers views to the city of Granada 800 ft below. The position of the villa in Altos de la Zubia is enviable in that access to the city can be achieved by a short 10 minute drive.
The villa makes extensive use of glass in order to maximise the views available. Floor to ceiling windows provide unobstructed access from living rooms and bedrooms to the outside decking areas and the sights beyond. The picture above shows the view from the main living area towards the outdoor decking and infinity pool. The excellent location looks down over the other spectacular properties in the area and further down to the city of Granada itself. The lights of the city make a wonderful backdrop in the evenings (especially from the hot tub).
Due to the elevated position of the villa, the views are excellent from all sides. The whole property has been designed with this in mind. Looking to the opposite side, guests will see the largest national park in Spain, the foothills of Sierra Nevada and the snow-capped peaks beyond.
Views are available from all floors. A covered deck below the main living area provides open air access as well as a large outdoor decking area on the bedroom level. In addition a smaller open air bar area provides additional height while the ultimate visual point is a 360 degree viewing deck at the very top of the villa.
The interior space of Silverfield Villa has been designed to give an impression of cavernous size. Large floor areas are combined with double and triple height ceilings along with a spectacular open staircase to provide a living area with a truly unique feel. The architect who designed the villa has many years of experience designing contemporary office spaces and we wanted to bring that feeling to the Silverfield.
Companies looking to do brainstorming sessions with senior staff away from the complications of city life will find the villa to be an ideal venue.
Due to the superb weather in the Granada area, the villa has also been designed to combine indoor and outdoor living in a seamless way. Advanced glass technology allows the villa to remain at a comfortable temperature all year round without too much reliance on the computer controlled heating and cooling systems.
The villa is fitted with the latest technology in every area. Distributed AV, high bandwidth computer network, indoor/outdoor wifi, LED lighting and automated home control with touch panel interfaces all combine to provide a ‘space age’ feel to the entire project.
A party at Sliverfield Villa doesn’t even start to look busy unless you have around 100 friends to invite…
Living and dining area...
The huge living and dining area is surrounded by glass on all sides which creates an additional sense of space. This effect is amplified by the use of high ceilings and a minimal furniture scheme.
Sitting close to the windows gives the guest a feeling that they are floating, surrounded by some of the most spectacular scenery Spain has to offer.
The open internal staircase bisects the main living space and sits next to the glass elevator which can carry guests to any level of the villa.
The kitchen facility is on open plan with the living/dining area and is of superb quality. Guests can prepare their own meals or the facility can be used by an external chef or outside catering contractor.
The main living space is equally suited to holiday or professional use with high speed CAT 7 cabled internet coupled to the house network and a highly advanced indoor/outdoor wifi system which provides drop out free internet. The house network is directly connected to a fibre backbone which can easily handle high bandwidth activities such as corporate uploads, video conferencing and AV streaming.
A remotely controlled open gas fire in the living area provides a beautiful focal area during the Winter months and internal water features improve the aural and visual sense of open space.
The high level of interior finish is extended from the living areas to the bedrooms. The master bedroom in particular is an amazing room set on its own floor.
The master includes sleeping and living areas as well as walk in wardrobes and bathroom. The outside decking area can also be accessed from the gym and spa housed on the same level.
The bathroom is set next to a curved glass wall. Blinds can be opened to provide amazing views of the surrounding hills.
The master bedroom is also equipped with a full AV system and desk space. It is effectively a fully equipped apartment within the villa.
Granada is home to a number of excellent golf courses and Silverfield Villa is in a prime location for access with both Santa Clara and Granada Club de Golf being less than 3 miles from the villa.
For hill walkers, a small access road directly behind the property provides direct access to the hills and more spectacular routes in the high mountains can be accessed by a very short drive.
The city of Granada is less than 10 minutes from Silverfield Villa by car. As a former capital of Spain, the locations to visit are extensive and include Generalife - the summer residence of the Nazarid kings, El Albaycin – the world famous medieval district, Plaza Nueva – the cultural centre of Granada and of course the Alhambra itself – the royal palace of the Moorish kings of Spain.
The Sierra Nevada ski resort is extensive and modern with excellent access roads, an ultra-efficient gondola and one of the best sunshine records in the world. It also has a long season – generally opening in November and not closing until the end of April.
Granada and Malaga (50 miles distance) both have football teams in La Liga, the premier league of Spain. There are ample opportunities throughout the year for guests at Silverfield Villa to see some of the world’s best teams including Real Madrid and Barcelona.

What makes this Villa unique
There are very few features that are not included in Silverfield Villa but the most unique benefit is the spectacular views from all sides. The architect designed the entire property to take maximum advantage of this. Even the edge of the infinity pool has been lined up on the city of Granada below so that the lights of the city merge with the edge of the water as it drops!

La casa es simplemente espectacular! Mucho mejor de lo que se ve, supera las expectativas! lo mejor el anfitrión Cacho de primera, no podríamos estar más agradecidos por la hospitalidad mostrada.
Muchas gracias Maria!!!
The property is stunning.
Communication was first class, everyone question was answered and I asked a few! For me this was so important. The property is more stunning in real life if I'm honest. And I hope to be back again in 2018.
It was a pleasure to deal with you Michael!
Something for everyone
Celebrating my 50th birthday with family and friends we had a great time at the villa. There really was something for everyone, lots for the active including indoor and outdoor gyms, space for yoga and meditation, lots of fun in the basement games area and the cinema room too. We were blessed with great weather and even though the temperature was around 40 degrees every day there was plenty of shade and the fantastic swimming pool when we got too hot. Being located high on the hill side meant it was cool enough in the evenings to sit out. The house is very well stocked with everything you need including the car and the electric bikes which we all had a great time on. It was great exploring the different areas of Granada and they have a brand new centre called Nevada which is biggest shopping centre I think I have ever seen. This was a big hit with our twenty somethings. The Alhambra was amazing, you do need to book in advance. Colin and his team are incredibly helpful from the moment we booked to when we returned home and our security deposit was refunded promptly. He even helped keeping my friends arrival a secret and arranged her transport from the airport for us. A very special holiday.
Thank you so much for the review Jane - we are really happy that you enjoyed yourselves. Your group were the perfect guests....
WOW....what a pad, like a super yacht on top of a mountain! The views are beautiful and sunrise and
Our group were 8 adults and 7 kids aged from 3 to 10, we all loved Silverfield, it really spoilt us for a week.
The facilities are incredible, the indoor pool, cinema, barbecue area, games room and enormous living areas with great bedrooms made it difficult to leave!
When we did escape there is loads to do, it's easy and quick to get into Granada for incredible food and amazing culture! The mountain bikes are great for exploring locally.
Javier the house manager was excellent, attentive and extremely helpful.
A memorable week away, we will be returning!
Thank you so much James. You guys were perfect guests. We are really glad you enjoyed yourselves...Hope to see you next year!
Wonderful house and hospitality!
Our entire family and some friends stayed in Silverfield Villa over the Christmas holidays, and it could not have been better. First, the house itself is incredible. The views in from your bedroom down across the entire valley lays Granada and the surrounding towns out in front of you. The fourth floor bar was a great place to spend the nights. The indoor pool and theater made it hard to leave the house, but the hiking trail into the Sierra Nevada park right behind the house draws you out.
We also hired the chef Fernando to cook Christmas eve dinner, and it could not have been better. Great tapas and suckling pig! I would highly recommend him as an addition.
Getting into Granada or some of the local towns was also very easy, not just to go to the Alhambra but to wander through the streets of the Albayzin and make it to the top of the hill for sunset. We also drove down to the Mediterranean coast one day to enjoy the water and the beach side dining.
Javier is very attentive to any needs, and Colin could not be more helpful. Highly recommended for a southern Spain getaway!
Really glad the villa met with your expectations - thanks for being great guests!
