This is the crème de la crème of luxurious living in Tel Aviv
Favoured by international jetsetters, this modern sanctuary has quickly transitioned into becoming one of Tel Aviv’s most tempting places to stay.
Enclosed by the White City (a UNESCO World Heritage site home to over 4000 Bauhaus-style buildings from the 1930s), the villa’s surroundings are truly hypnotic. It’s the place to be if you enjoy architecture, but also if you want to be close to many of the city’s most popular spots. Originally known as The Gurevitch House and built in 1913, it sits on a street nestled in between Tel Aviv’s pulsating artery, Rothschild Boulevard, and the Neve Tzedek neighbourhood, with all of its old-school allure and picture-perfect streets resting underneath breezy palm trees.
The interior design is masterfully executed by Belgian-born designer Yael Siso, and each and every one of the eight home tells a different story. There’s the heritage-style floor with a view of raw sandstone walls and original Bauhaus windows coupled with Art Deco-esque furniture for an elegant spritz of colour.
There are the urban and loft-like homes included in the new steel enclosure, all with industrial shells magnetically paired with warm wood floors, art by Israeli painters, and terraces with lush greenery to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning.
And finally, the ground-floor homes, perfect for guests craving space, sizeable outdoor oases with comfortable lounge seating, and stylish furniture from a mix of Italian, Danish and Spanish brands.
The villa itself has undergone a decade-long renovation resulting in an architectural triumph that merges the past and the present into one, set against the exciting fabric that is Tel Aviv’s enthusiastic and ever-changing cityscape. The architects have preserved many of the façade’s period features (think shutters, mouldings, and arched windows), but livened it all up with a new addition. The new addition being a steel-encased structure that hovers above the old Bauhaus-meets-Eclectic style building, firmly placing the villa within the context of the twenty-first century and telling a story of the past and present.
This part of the villa houses two additional floors of more urban-style homes with ultra-modern amenities, as well as the absolute showstopper of a home and the pride of the villa, Concrete Miracle. A two-floor penthouse with a state of the art kitchen, wrap-around terrace with a view of the skyline, harmonious interiors, and a rooftop with a swim spa to start your day, it’s all we could ever want in a home.
