Share Diana Morales | Dec 19 2011

La Zagaleta has long enjoyed a name as one of Marbella’s most exclusive residential areas, so the exceptional quality of this recently built home should not come as a surprise. However, its many luxurious features somehow manage to set it in a class of its own, even by La Zagaleta’s very high standards.

Stunning Estate in La Zagaleta

Constructed in the year 2000, the property has been designed and built to enhance family life, while also allowing staff to live in. The introduction to this gracious lifestyle is effected by an imposing entrance hall and reception room, measuring 85m, which offers a hint at the lifestyle to be enjoyed. The ground floor also includes a formal dining room that leads off the kitchen and affords excellent views of the rolling hills of the La Zagaleta resort. On the other side a spacious living room is perfect for lively family evenings in.

The kitchen area itself contains another dining area, a utility room and also offers access to the garage and staff quarters. Outside is a covered terrace, the perfect place to dine during the warmest months of the year. The master living room contains a fireplace, while a secondary living room is large enough to make it the ideal place to entertain guests. Also on this level are two sumptuous bedroom suites that share a private reading room, as well as a further room with en-suite bathroom that has been used as a study.

Upstairs the 120m2 bedroom suite incorporates a large walk-in dressing area and an extensive covered terrace, which is shared with the guest suite next door. The lower floor is equipped with an enticing world of home entertainment possibilities, including a heated indoor pool, gymnasium and sauna, not to mention a private cinema with a complete set of facilities. Naturally such a home should count on having its own wine cellar, and in typical fashion this villa delivers in style.

A separate house that can be entered via the entrance courtyard could be used as comfortable staff quarters or could just as easily accommodate guests who prefer a level of autonomy; it contains a lounge, kitchen and bedroom with pre-instalment of a bathroom. A stylish multi-car garage completes the facilities, together with covered guest parking at the main entrance, under floor heating throughout, a climate control system, security and state-of-the-art technical utilities.

This important home finds itself embraced by the verdant tones of a manicured private garden, a stylish panoramic pool area and the grounds themselves enveloped by the meticulously maintained La Zagaleta complex. Though set in the foothills of a pine-clad mountain range, the villa is only a 20-minute drive from Puerto Banús and Marbella town. It is within this environment that the property enjoys access to La Zagaleta’s two 18-hole golf courses, an equestrian centre and the other sporting facilities designed to provide residents with a truly five-star lifestyle.
