About the house
BUILDING THE HOUSE
Set in what is undoubtedly Israel’s most spectacular and aspirational town, this beautifully designed home sits atop the 14th hole of the Caesarea Golf Course – with magnificent western, southern, and northern facing views. Talk about panoramic scenery, and those breezes wafting off the Mediterranean Sea!
The Caesarea Real Estate villa was designed and built as a dream home – by an engineer and interior designer. It was created with every modern convenience thought of and implemented. And thinking ahead, the house was built with not only current needs considered, but future possibilities in mind. Just as an example – interior walls are made from sheetrock (“geves”) which allows for easy removal if the desire is to create a new room or a larger one – the floor is already tiled underneath so no worries about finding marble flooring to match. Each floor has a totally flexible layout. The house is 500 sq.m built (5,000 square feet) and sits on a dunam (1/4 acre).
The engineer was concerned about a comfortable traffic flow and a minimum of wasted space. The designer dreamed of French doors and black diamond insets in the marble floor (an epitome of classic French design). They were pedantic throughout the building process, arriving on site daily, staying in constant communication with the contractor and workers in order to ensure that everything was built to the highest standard. The best materials were used in every part of the building process and the highest degree of workmanship was expected and supplied. The workers were the honored guests when the owners had an open house to celebrate the completion.
In addition to the high-end features expected in a house of this quality, there are additional design details that facilitate a comfortable life for the residents: built-in closets in every room; concealed A/C vents; two-car garage whose door is on the side of the house (to avoid an unsightly garage door on the facade), a garage (with farmhouse sink) that leads to a pantry right outside the kitchen and even a coat closet in the entryway (a rarity in Israeli homes). Electrical closets are included on every floor to ease maintenance of the smart electricity system. The water boiler is hidden in a large crawl space in the upstairs bathroom, with easy access but no ugly hints of it from the outside. Every window and door is bordered by cream colored limestone, which enhances the stunning exterior appearance of the house. From the central air conditioning system, the quality windows and doors, the central vacuum system and the under floor heating – only the very best manufacturers were used.
