The Alexandre De Betak home may be cave-like in design, but with its infinitely modern accessories and its fresh, out-the-box newness, De Betak is hardly living the caveman life!

T Magazine describes the house as having "devastating views of the Mediterranean Sea, oddly curvaceous white plaster walls and a surfeit of unpretentious, quirky design gestures."

Despite its size and original design, the hill-top, sea-side home is quaint and inviting. Located in a small coastal village in the Tramuntana region of Majorca, the home is inspired by 1970s architecture -- with a twist.

De Betak explains in his interview with T Magazine that he wanted the ambiance to be "very minimal but warm," and goes on to say, "For 10 years I was dreaming about it, for five years I was looking for a spot for it, for two years working on it, for another two years building it, and finally here it is!"

This modern cave comes equipped with an in-home movie theater and gorgeous swimming pool. Its design, ambiance and flavor make it truly a hill-top haven. Stats for Luxury Archaic Abodes Trending: Older & Average
