La Zagaleta

Exclusive La Zagaleta villa for sale

This luxurious gated community – one of the most exclusive in Europe – exists amid the spectacular natural scenery that comes with a privileged location at the point where Marbella and open countryside meet. Though just minutes away from the beaches, boutiques, restaurants and spas of Marbella and Puerto Banús, life in the private domain of La Zagaleta equates to peace, privacy and being surrounded by magnificent mountain scenery and deep green valleys that focus the eye on vistas of the Mediterranean Sea all the way to Gibraltar and North Africa.

This beautifully designed and finished villa offers the best of these typical Zagaleta virtues, including stunning views over its nearby golf course. Featuring stylish contemporary architecture by Christian Laran, the home represents a tastefully proportioned example of a fine modern Zagaleta property in a handpicked setting where its sleek white lines contrast beautifully with the surrounding greenery. A modern yet imposing gate leads on to a forecourt with a double garage and double carport. From here the architectural detail of the villa comes into impressive detail, expressed through interesting lines and a portico flanked by long, geometric water features.

Such features add a touch of personality and sophistication to a villa whose size is tastefully concealed by a skilful use of volume and proportion. It lends the property a refinement that continues as you step through the portico into an entrance hall that leads to a spacious living area with double-height ceiling and a clear perspective towards the golf course, nature, blue skies and mountainous outcrops on the Mediterranean horizon. Clever design means this home has no dark or unattractively utilitarian corners, but lots of natural light that streams in from windows overlooking intimate little corners planted with Zen gardens.
