The most expensive property for sale in the Canary Islands is in Monte Leon in south Gran Canaria, according to property portal Idealista.
At 6.9 million euros, the two-storey, 930 square metre villa was designed by German architect Friedrich Wilhelm Kraeme and is the current residence of internationally renowned pianist Justus Frantz.
The top floor consists of landscaped central patio, a large master suite, and four other double bedrooms with bathrooms. There is also an equipped industrial kitchen and living room with large windows facing south.
The ground floor has a magnificent hall divided into three separate spaces plus three bedrooms with en suite bathrooms.
The property also includes four bungalows, each with living room with rustic kitchen, and two with double bedrooms and a bathroom. A third habitable zone contains a living room with kitchen and a double bedroom.
Near the mansion there is a pool with gazebo and sauna and spectacular views. The 88,000 square metre property also includes large garden areas, vineyards, boating pool, tennis court and fruit orchards.
This property is a cultural icon of Gran Canaria as it is the location of the Franz and Friends Festival music event held during the summer.
