While many of today’s buyers in Marbella like the styling and amenities of modern, new-built properties, it is the older homes that often enjoy the very best locations. After all, these sites were chosen when land was still freely available, so you’ll find many an older villa in the most appealing beachside, frontline golf and hillside settings, not to mention the most prestigious addresses close to Marbella town and Puerto Banús.
To many, the obvious solution to this conundrum is to merge the best of both worlds and renovate an older Marbella property in a top location. Villas, in particular lend themselves to this, and in addition to representing an excellent investment through the added value created by modernising the home, they are also easier to pass through planning permission than those projects starting from scratch.
What’s more, while incorporating contemporary styles, amenities, building standards and home comforts, a renovation project has the added advantage of quite frequently yielding elements of the original home’s landscaping, styling or detailing that adds the kind of character and charm to set it apart from newly-constructed homes.
This frontline golf villa in Nueva Andalucia’s Golf Valley offers the latest comforts and styles within a couple of minutes’ walk to trendy restaurants, shops and amenities, whilst this contemporary four-bedroom villa in Los Naranjos, Nueva Andalucia with a built area of 567m2 on a plot of over 1.100m2, is surrounded by a lush, mature garden in a prime Marbella setting.
