Completed within the past couple of months, this beautiful villa is situated within the exclusive residential area of Los Monteros. Only a few kilometres east of Marbella’s town centre, property in this well established zone is much sought after, since Los Monteros is considered one of the centres of what the locals refer to as ‘classic Marbella’. The property is situated in the Los Monteros Playa area, within a short walk of the beach club, and also enjoys private access to the beach.
Since it is such a new addition to Los Monteros, the villa has been designed and constructed to include all the features typical of contemporary luxury homes.
The expansive split-level living room leads off the entrance hall and permits access to the formal dining room beyond. This part of the house is a superb entertaining area since, apart from the generous scale of the living and dining rooms, both lead on to an expansive covered terrace, complete with external fireplace. It offers a cosy place to relax in the evening, but comes into its own during the day, as the garden, infinity pool and beach also lead off the terrace.
On the other side of the entrance hall a large family kitchen has been fully fitted with Silestone work surfaces and equipped with Bosch appliances. The attractive central island is ideal for food preparation. This part of the house also features a laundry area and a staff bedroom complete with bathroom, which can be accessed independently. A guest toilet and three bedroom suites – one of which is connected to the terrace – complete the ground floor. The design of this extraordinary villa incorporates interior gardens that ensure the home is flooded with light throughout the day.
The first floor contains a further two bedrooms; a guest suite and the en-suite master bedroom with its own dressing area. These bedrooms lead to a terrace overlooking the pool and the Mediterranean Sea beyond.
Two catchwords of this home are ‘light’ and ‘space’, much of which is provided by the use of sliding doors that lead into the internal patios. A great deal of attention has been paid to the small details that elevate the villa to a category of its own. The gardens have, for example, been planted with Bermuda grass, while the infinity pool features internal waterfalls and is imaginatively lit, creating a very pleasing nocturnal feature. There is underfloor heating throughout the house, provided by hot water, except in the bathrooms where electricity is used. There are Lutron lighting fittings, electric shutters and automatic lights with sensors in the guest toilet and on the staircase. The property has been designed as an ‘intelligent home‘ with a state-of-the-art domestic automation.
Outside there is a carport for two. To protect this magnificent five-bedroom villa there is also an excellent alarm system.
Los Monteros has maintained its reputation for exclusivity and quality over the years, so properties within the urbanisation are prized and this imaginative new build villa will, deservedly, attract a lot of attention.
