Ah, Marbella, Spain. The sparkling blue of the Mediterranean…the postcard-perfect beaches…the Michelin-starred restaurants and see-and-be-seen, stay-up-until-dawn nightclubs. The gorgeous resort town, with its alluring mix of modern hotspots and historic Old Town charms, has long attracted Europe’s wealthiest who flock to its shores for a posh escape.
Villas here are rare, and command a premium. Villas in Marbella’s “Golden Mile,” in particular — “one of the most prestigious residential areas characterized by the uniqueness of its buildings and set just a few minutes from downtown, international schools, shopping malls, and all the services of the city,” says Carlos Artacho, a luxury realty consultant at Alarcon Premium Estates – Coldwell Banker Previews in Marbella — command an even higher premium. That is why this sprawling and elegantly designed villa in the Golden Mile caught our eye.
Just listed by Alarcon Premium Estates, the immaculate property is situated on a large plot of land, enveloping its inhabitants in complete privacy, harmony and comfort. For an added sense of privacy and security, the house “lives” in a gated community with 24-hour security, monitored with CCTV and patrolled by guards. Serenity arrives from the moment you enter the property’s sleek gates: subtropical manicured gardens whisk you away to another world, where a private pool, bathing area and outdoor terraces for enjoying mountain and garden views at all hours of the day and night.
Inside, the holiday continues. Marble, wood, glass and clean lines blend to create a feeling of tranquility and balance.
Nine ensuite bedrooms and 10 baths provide more than enough space to accommodate guests or extended family.
Relaxation and leisure are suggested by the architecture at nearly every turn.
Enjoy a massage or practice yoga in the spa area, for example. Sample a fine Andalusian white from the well-appointed wine cellar.
Watch your favorite movie in the cinema room. Play arcade games (air hockey, anyone?) in the entertainment room.
Record your favorite song in the music room.
If your workouts are part of your everyday routine, there’s also a gym. Invisible to the eye, there are other thoughtful touches too, such as a home automation system and underfloor heating system.
Another bonus: the villa is located just six minutes from the internationally known marina of Puerto Banus, with all of its glamorous top international brand shops, restaurants and clubs. Marbella’s Golf Valley, with its five golf courses (Aloha Golf Club, Real Club de Golf Las Brisas, La Quinta Golf Club, Dama de Noche Golf Club and Los Naranjos Golf Club), is only seven minutes away.
“This property is undeniably elegant, exclusive and immaculate,” says Artacho, who has listed it for $24,249,944 USD. “It’s a place to enjoy nature and tranquillity.”
