Rosewood Villa Magna Unveils Spacious New Penthouses

Anglada House and Salamanca House boast panoramic views of Madrid.

By Irenie Forshaw

Rosewood Villa Magna has unveiled two sprawling penthouse accommodations in the heart of Madrid. The much-anticipated abodes – Anglada House and Salamanca House – are the last additions to the luxury hotel group’s Spanish property and bring the final phase of the building’s extensive renovations to a close.

More akin to stylish apartments than hotel rooms, the spacious penthouses feature outdoor terraces that are among the largest in Europe. Located on the leafy Paseo de la Castellana on the top floor of Rosewood Villa Magna, the new accommodations offer an oasis of calm in the heart of Spain’s bustling capital.

Designed by Melbourne-based BAR Studio, the interiors are a picture of refined elegance in shades of beige, cream and pale green. Both penthouses nod to the local history of the property and are dotted with beautiful works of art.

Named after an esteemed Spanish businessman and politician, Anglada House is the largest and most exclusive penthouse at Rosewood Villa Magna, with floor-to-ceiling windows revealing sweeping vistas of the city below. The apartment has plenty of room to accommodate up to six guests, boasting two bedrooms, a dining room, living room, work studio and kitchen with an island. In other words, it would be easy never to step foot outside during your stay.

The space has been thoughtfully decorated with a unique collection of sculptures, still life paintings and family portraits from celebrated artists Johannes Nielson and Salustiano Garcia Cruz. BAR Studio has created sophisticated yet decidedly laid-back interiors with a cozy home-away-from-home feel thanks to the warm lighting, fireplaces and comfortable modern furnishings.

Rosewood Villa Magna’s other penthouse takes its name from the Marquis of Salamanca – a prominent Spanish politician who helped develop the historic Salamanca district of the city where the hotel is situated. Salamanca House has the same contemporary feel as Anglada with modern architectural features throughout.

Artworks adorning the penthouse include photographs from Josephine Cardin, a painting by contemporary Russian artist Andrey Renven and a 3D illustration by Roman Bratschi. The apartment only has one formal bedroom but can easily be connected with several adjoining suites to create a four-bedroom space.

The pièce de résistance, however, are the penthouse’s outdoor areas. Both apartments feature sliding doors that open onto gigantic 1,500-sq-ft limestone terraces featuring both a living area and dining area complete with a barbeque – the ideal setting for whiling away a lazy summer afternoon with a book or dining al fresco.

Ensuring there are plenty of options for larger groups, Rosewood Villa Magna has also added two other residential-style houses to the hotel: Castellana House and Cedros House, located on the second and sixth floors of the hotel.
