The sunny resort city of Marbella is one that many people dream of moving to, as it is not only filled with history, culture and natural beauty, but it also supports such a diversity of lifestyles. Whether you happen to be crazy about the beach or fanatic about golf, there is no shortage of luxury Marbellan estates out there to suit your lifestyle.
The city of Marbella itself is home to 17 miles of coastline, which has been divided up into 24 different beaches, each offering its own unique set of features. If you already have a beach in mind, then this will help to really narrow down your search, but for those who are more flexible about picking a beachfront property, there are so many worth checking out. Estates on Malibu Beach enjoy exclusivity, as this is a gated complex offering the utmost of privacy, and is only a few minutes walk from the famous marina of Puerto Banus, which also happens to be one of the top nightlife areas in Marbella. Alternatively, Los Monteros is home to a number of historic properties that could do with some fixing up, while Victors Beach is another that boasts a prime location.
The Costa del Sol is home to some of the finest golf courses in the world, making a golfline estate the perfect choice for those who enjoy the sport. The villas in Nueva Andalucia are within a walking distance from the Los Naranjos Golf Club, which is known for being incredibly peaceful, while also boasting scenic views of La Concha Mountain. For those who would prefer an exclusive gated community, the Estepona complex is just 15 minutes from the centre of Marbella, and just one minute away from the nearest golf course, while the gated community at Benahavis, which is nearby to the Los Flamingos Golf Resort, is another spot worth considering.
The architecture that you will find throughout Marbella is definitely impressive, with many buildings sporting contemporary, avant-garde design details. The gated community of La Quinta de Sierra Blanca, on Marbella’s Golden Mile, has no shortage of modern estates, each boasting unique features such as suspended fireplaces, indoor swimming pools and plenty of natural light. Guadalmina Baja is also home to many designer properties, with everything from double-height rooms to dramatic entranceways, while the contemporary architecture that you will see in Benahavis contrasts beautifully with the dense woodland around it. Many of the plots here contain steep slopes, but these have been incorporated into the modern designs of the properties, making use of multiple terraces and garden areas to take full advantage of the views that can be had from these one-of-a-kind plots.
Marbella is home to many extraordinary estates, and you will no doubt be able to find one that suits you. Whether you are seeking an isolated beachfront villa, or a modern golfline mansion, there are so many estates here that are bound to take your breath away, which does make the decision-making process so much harder!
