Luxury clifftop living in Gibraltar – New Aloes development

With 2.6 square mile Gibraltar ranking fifth in the world for population density, just behind Hong Kong, space is in short supply. But the creators of New Aloes have managed to squeeze a luxury home out of the Rock, and it’s turned many heads.

Sandra Lamplough, marketing manager for developer Fairhomes Ltd, said: “Outside living, rambling gardens, large swimming pools, open terraces – all of these are few and far between in Gibraltar, but New Aloes has them all.

“Other developers are creating luxury lifestyle homes, several with six figure price tags, but none are ready until at least 2015 or beyond.”

Built on the site of a former Ministry of Defence building of the same name, New Aloes is an open-plan five-storey seven-bedroom 21st-century home with gobsmacking views. Panning from south to north are the Rif Mountains of north Africa, the Atlantic-meets-Mediterranean Strait busy with tankers, cruise ships and superyachts, Rosia Bay – where Nelson’s body was brought after the Battle of Trafalgar, and Spain’s Bay of Algeciras. Floor-to-ceiling wall-to-wall glazing keeps the view alive from dawn until sunset.

With an eight figure price tag, New Aloes has been built with the discerning individual in mind. A discerning individual who is keen to get a foothold in a territory that has no capital gains tax, no VAT, little red tape, EU membership and regulation, and OECD White List Status.

Some of New Aloes’ highlights include a cavernous living-dining space, a kitchen complete with 25ft long all-in-one preparation-dining island, wet rooms with over-bath rain showers, a second-floor fitness suite with a Klafs sauna-with-a-view, a 12-car garage, Otis lift to all floors, and gadgetry such as electronically-operated full-height terrace doors and window blinds, auto-lighting for wardrobe hanging rails, an iLight lighting control system, video entry and a zoned alarm system with CCTV.
