Marbella, life in the lap of luxury

Share Diana Morales | May 18 2011

If you’ve ever imagined living in California you would only have to add a little more sun, far more culture and smaller cities full of international appeal that lie within half an hour of unspoiled nature reserves and pretty little mountain villages, to convert the Californian dream to Marbella reality.

Here, within close striking distance of the heart of Europe, an alluring climate and exotic Andalusian culture collude with a relaxed outdoor lifestyle and lively social scene to produce a very privileged way of life. With the added proximity and quality of its golf courses, racket clubs, spas, fine dining and beach clubs, its not surprising that Marbella remains one of the most desired spots in Europe.

Marbella Villa

Situated within one of the finest residential areas in Marbella, close to the exclusive Golden Mile yet high enough to enjoy magnificent views of the Mediterranean, this luxurious villa offers the classic appeal of this area. This expansive 1,630m2 home is set amid the luxuriant greenery of its 3,203m2 grounds, surrounded by large estates in a tranquil and private gated community.

A private driveway leads past immaculately kept lawns to the triple garage. A classic forecourt encourages one to pull up in front of the imposing entrance to the property in something suitably stylish and in keeping with the attractive contemporary Mediterranean architecture of the villa. Here, fine detailing such as traditional Spanish roof tiling, well-proportioned lines and a complimentary blend of house and garden, set the tone for a home with classic appeal and modern amenities.

Fine marble floors offer a touch of elegance as the entrance gives way to a spacious modern designer kitchen with a full range of Gaggenau appliances and a breakfast area that opens to a private patio. The two reception rooms offer space, light and magnificent views past the grounds to the sea. A covered terrace extends along much of the length of the house, offering a variety of spots from which to enjoy the outdoors and connecting with the heated pool and poolside cabana bar with sunbathing deck.

The private quarters and guest wing together contain five bedroom suites with luxuriously appointed marble bathrooms, while the property also has a home cinema with snooker room and independent staff accommodation. Quality, materials, workmanship and technical amenities are of the highest standard – as one would expect from a luxurious villa within Marbella’s lap of luxury.
