We weren’t convinced when the owner said she wanted a black-tiled pool; but there appears to have been “method in her madness”! Deep shades of aquamarine leap and glisten from the water, colours that are complemented throughout the house and which lend it its name. Completed in 2021, the conversion of the one-storey building focused on creating a large, airy indoor/outdoor living space, which would let in just the right amount of sun at different times of the day and year. And this is exactly what it does: the versatile terrace provides plenty of shade and breeze on hot summer’s days, yet within a few steps you can position yourself for maximising Cadiz’s winter sun. It makes for an ideal family beach property in all seasons.
