Its excellent location, next to the beach, and the magnificent possibilities offered by this vtwo storey townhouse, were enough reasons for Chavi and Cristina to decide to acquire it. In addition, its location, in The Port of Santa MariaIt was also ideal as they had been looking for a place near their usual residence, in Jerez de la Frontera, where they could enjoy weekends and summer vacations. Even so, at first they considered the house rather as an investment by renting it during the first years until, in the end, they decided to reform it.

Thanks to his professions - the architect and her rigger - the works were a success. After much thought, the distribution was changed looking for wider spaces, always giving priority to natural light. For this reason they were installed large windows and sliding glass doors on the ground floor which now has two rooms, one for winter and one cooler for summer. The latter was installed in the old garage; a perfect space because, thanks to its orientation, the air currents allow it to always be fresh. To achieve this, instead of partitions two folding and facing glass doors were installed, perfect for creating drafts if the temperature rises. From here you access a small front garden -a very nice place to sit in the shade of the trees- and another butt, with enough space for your children, Javier and Alejandro, to play without problems. In terms of decoration, design and simplicity prevail above all; White walls and upholstery in common areas and furniture in matt aluminum and light wood.

Good ideas, practices and decorative, also attract attention in many areas of the house; highlights the staircase that connects the two floors, made of pine wood, with the railing of fine bars and the steps without rear, all with the aim of lightening it and integrating it better into space. The gap under the stairs, although small, It fulfills two functions: on the one hand that of receiver, with a wall hanger, and on the other, as corner for music, with some shelves blown and a pair of vegetable fiber poufs. On the upper floor are the bedrooms that follow the same decorative patterns as the common areas: relaxing tones, light woods and scarce furniture. It highlights the main bathroom, completely covered in light marble and with a great work shower made of bush hammered marble. Precisely in this area a wall of pavements was installed that allows the passage of light from the outside.
