Classic Spanish architecture blended with modern style in Guadalmina Baja
Set upon a leafy street flanked by beautiful villas on expansive private plots, this is a home for those who appreciate comfort, quality and style. The villa finds itself in a quiet area with little or no passing traffic, within a few hundred metres of a fine stretch of beach complete with some of the best seafood restaurants in Marbella and a stylish, select beach club. A few minutes by car in the opposite direction lies the main coastal road, which brings Puerto Banús, Marbella and a wide choice of golf courses within a ten-minute radius.
In the immediate vicinity are the shops, restaurants, cafés and supermarket of the stylish Guadalmina commercial centre, while the fairways of the Club de Golf Guadalmina meander within touching distance of the villa.
Recently renovated, the villa blends classic Spanish elegance and design features with fresh, open modern interior spaces that flow effortlessly from one to the other. An imposing gate opens on to a spacious cobbled forecourt that offers plenty of parking space as well as a large double garage in the style of a coach house. From here the stylish architecture is striking, revealing sleek white-plastered walls contrasted with solid antique wooden doors.
One of these leads on to a colonnaded corridor with a glass frontage that overlooks a spacious patio. This interpretation of that classic Andalusian feature has a modern feel, as does the interior as you step through into a light and breezy entrance hall that leads on to a spacious open-flowing living room with floor-to-ceiling windows bringing the outdoors inside. Sliding doors open on to the covered terrace that takes in a large level garden planted with trees with a perspective towards the swimming pool and adjacent guesthouse.
An arch separates a second room from the salon, which can be used as a dining room, a TV room or even a study. Also on the ground floor is a stylish modern kitchen with top-end appliances, a laundry and a sunny breakfast area, while a separate wing contains a suite with two bedrooms and bathrooms whose independence makes them ideal for older children or other family members. Stairs lead past the elegant cloakroom to a master bedroom with dressing room and stylish modern bathroom, with a second bedroom suite bringing the total number of bedrooms in the main house to four.
A short distance removed from the villa are the pool deck, guesthouse and a private padel tennis court. The guesthouse features a large first floor bedroom suite complete with dresser, while on the ground floor are a storage space, bathroom, bar/kitchen and a sunny room overlooking the pool that is ideal as a games and entertainment area.
Perfect for families who like to live in an environment of comfort and style, this beautifully finished home is also a well-balanced blend of classical and modern in an ideally private yet central location.
