Newly finished with timeless modern Mediterranean flair, this stylish five-bedroom villa in Sierra Blanca blends comfort and refinement in one of Marbella’s finest addresses.
In Marbella there are many villas that are impressive, even imposing, but not as many that also offer a comfortable home where you could see yourself settle-in with delight.
We have therefore come to expect luxury, architectural finery and a long list of amenities, but sometimes this is at the expense of liveability, where grand villas become glittering showpieces but do not convince as homes that are as welcoming and cosseting to the occupants as they are impressive to their visitors.
A perfect blend of style and homely comfort
It takes great skill on the part of the architect, the decorator, landscapers and of course the owner to create a villa that is as welcoming, cosy and practical as it is visually stunning, stylish and sophisticated. In achieving just that with such aplomb, this luxurious contemporary Marbella villa for sale in Sierra Blanca is not unlike a beautiful woman who is at once smart, elegant, kind and practically minded.
This fine villa in Sierra Blanca, one the most desirable residential zones of Marbella, gets the balance just right from the minute you enter to the moment you settle in the open-plan living room or sit back and enjoy the lovely Marbella sun on the pool deck terrace.
The villa is located on a quiet street in the upper western part of Sierra Blanca, where the magnificent La Concha Mountain rises up to meet the same blue skies that arch towards the lively Marbella and Puerto Banús shoreline, where land meets the Mediterranean Sea that expands out towards North Africa and the Atlantic Ocean at Gibraltar.
An automated gate glides open at the touch of a button, revealing a driveway lined with exotic trees that are even more impressive under evening lighting. The large garage is positioned on the left and the elegant forecourt opens up to the imposing entrance that is a modern interpretation of classical elegance.
A bright and luminous villa
Solid doors open up to a perfectly proportioned entrance with gallery and skylight that allows natural light to flow into the home. This is a villa that is bright and luminous, with barely a room to be found that does not enjoy views and windows to let the fresh air in. What particularly impresses about this home is the perfect flow of its layout, something that may seem a mere detail but really influences life in a house and dictates its ambience.
To the right of the terrace are a cloakroom, a guest suite or office, and a laundry that is linked to the delightful open kitchen featuring tasteful modern design. Good taste is in evidence everywhere, from the architecture to the furniture, and it too adds to the sense that this is a sophisticated family home you could move into right away.
The centre point of the home is the open-plan kitchen, living, dining and TV room area that simply makes you want to stay, slide the door open and step out onto the terrace or accept the invitation of the pool sparkling bright against the perfect green lawn. Above are a further two guest suites and a cosy terrace as well as a larger suite that shares a terrace with the master bedroom.
Both feature modern bathrooms, while the master suite also has a made-to-measure dressing room. The lower floor has been finished to the same standard as the rest of the villa and prepared so that it offers the new owner a wide range of options, from cinema and games rooms to guest accommodation, gym and private bodega or spa.
