Costs For Cinema and Gym in Basement

To develop the basement the builder has gave the following as a rough estimate -

1. to develop the entire basement level and prepare one cinema room and one gymnasium- €100,000 (this does not include the machinery which he says will be around 20k on top of this figure)

2. He also suggested that you may wish to relocate the existing machinery room under the new pool hence increasing the lower level even further.

You should also keep in mind that the above ground level build figures for La Zagaleta is 15% of the plot which means that there is even scope to extend here should you so wish in the future, again adding significant value to the villa. Currently excluding the basement the villa is 493.88 sq m and an additional 200 sq m would be permitted from ground level upwards. Superb opportunity you may wish to explore in the future which really would take this property to an even greater level.

4, Renew kitchen complete including all associated building works € 50.000

5, I've included some pictures of the pool below and house I completed recently. This T shaped pool with beach entrance would work very well if your client does not want a large area of lawn. I suggest the beach is built in line with the central steps and is finished with an infinity edge across the entire back wall. Its just a suggestion for now. I envisage the completed pool with piled retaining walls will be in the region of € 95.000. If we bring the pool in from the plot edge this cost should be reduced. The final cost is dependent on a structural engineers report.
