Stunning detached villa/estate located within a 24 hour guarded development just behind Puerto Banus...
From its commanding position this grand estate enjoys some of the very best views in the development, not to mention Marbella. Its privileged setting upon a largely level plot surrounded by open greenery is made all the more special by a spectacular focal point across a natural amphitheatre that follows a valley flanked by wooded hills straight down to the sea.
The sparkling Mediterranean is therefore a companion in many of the property's rooms and terraces, from where a myriad of vantage points can be had. These take in the coastal plain and the curve of the shore to Gibraltar and North Africa, but also Marbella's iconic La Concha Mountain.
A stately driveway leads to two separate parking forecourts, one for each of the two houses on the estate, and continues down to the lower perimeter of the property. The main villa therefore enjoys easy access from either parking area, though its own impressive forecourt can accommodate a large number of cars and leads directly to two double garages.
From here you step through an imposing entrance with Balinese detailing and arrive at the hall that acts as an internal distributor. The latter flows on to a stylish living room with a large marble fireplace and slightly rounded window that somehow frames the magnificent views with even more lustre. From both here and the adjacent formal dining room you can step out on to the large terrace and find a spot to relax, lounge, dine or enjoy coffee or breakfast in the fresh air.
Though elegant, the classic Clive Christian kitchen is the centrepiece of a space with real country house charm, complete with an antique Dutch fireplace. This part of the house is also home to a laundry room, a large walk-in safe and a cosy breakfast and reading room with its own terrace area. At the opposite side of the ground floor level, meanwhile, there is a large private office with its own independent external access and a stairwell connecting it to the welcoming winter lounge and library on the first floor.
This room's cosy fireplace, book shelves and magnificent views make it just the spot to spend comfortable evenings, and in connecting with the expansive main bedroom suite it can also function as a private lounge area. In addition to a large and sunny bedroom with equally stunning views, the main bedroom suite also features a sumptuous marble bathroom with step-in power shower and four-poster bath that evokes the indulgent opulence of Roman times.
A discreet toilet and large dressing room complete this private area, while the first floor, whose main access is from the central entrance hall, also features two spacious bedroom and bathroom suites, each with its own exterior spaces. The architecture of the charming tower room makes it the only one not to have a terrace, though its views and unique ambience more than make up for it, singling it out as a perfect reader's or artist's retreat within the house.
The stable house above the garages contains a further two independent bedroom suites, which share a large, sunny sitting room and expansive terraces overlooking the equally spacious grounds that measure a total of over 11000m2. The lower part of the stable house, behind the garages, contains another section with two bedroom suites, a small kitchen and a living room, ideal for use as either an office, studio or guest accommodation. From here you enter an area of sprawling greenery with large lawns, impressive trees and the panoramic terrace area with its large heated swimming pool.
The garden continues one level further down, with a pool house, changing rooms and another partly covered terrace area that once upon a time was used as a private summer discotheque. In offering ample space mixed with an inspiring setting it provides the basis for a great many different uses, from guest accommodation to a personal spa area.
Although the property has its earliest origins in the 1970s the main house was rebuilt in the latter 1990s and a second house added in 2000. Impressive in its own right, it stands a little further back within the embrace of beautiful green scenery. Its symmetrical design features two large independent homes each with a modern kitchen, dining room, living room and two bedrooms with marble bathrooms ? all generous in their proportions. In between is a laundry area, with above it a fifth bedroom suite that can be linked to either of the two houses.
This very complete property embodies a total built area of 2130m2 set upon a private estate dominated by its prime position and views. It is a fine example of the fact that the best locations are always taken first, and since this was one of the original estates within the development, it really does occupy a position that would be hard to equal not just in this luxurious gated community, but in all of Marbella.
