The former home of legendary fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent in Tangier, Morocco, is for sale.
The property, dubbed Villa Mabrouka (House of Luck), sits high atop a cliff overlooking the Strait of Gibraltar and the distant coastline of Spain and includes 2 (or so) acres of extensive and lush gardens created by legendary landscape designer Madison Cox that tumble down the hillside to the water’s edge.
An elegant villa, it occupies a coveted spot nearby the Kasbah in a quiet and well-protected residential district just five minutes from downtown. Refined interior design by renowned decorator Jacques Grange accentuates an atmosphere of wide-open space and architectural simplicity. Beautiful gardens surround the main house, which opens through a Moorish-style entry flowing into a lobby with white Moroccan arcades.
At approximately 900 square meters, the property has 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms and is on the market for an undisclosed price.
