The penthouse is an experience rather than just a living space. Culturally, they evoke visions of affluence and luxury living, of film stars and business tycoons sipping champagne on their rooftop terraces. Such alluring images of a stylish and elegant lifestyle have long been imprinted on the collective consciousness.

THE PINNACLE OF LUXURY LIVING - Marbella DirectBut what is it about a penthouse that continues to compel and inspire? What draws so many potential buyers to aspire to such a home? Perhaps it is the experience of living in a property that combines the benefits of both an apartment and a villa, while capitalising on beautiful views and luxury amenities.

In any urbanisation or apartment building, the penthouse is often the most sought after property as many developers have created homes that rival some of the most luxurious houses available in Marbella for size and desirability.

With a floor space, in many cases, stretching across the entire building’s footprint, penthouses are generally roomier than normal apartments, yet share none of the potential drawbacks of owning and maintaining a villa and gardens.

Stylish penthouse for sale on the Golden Mile

A superb example is this three bedroom beach penthouse in Estepona, which has every luxury you would expect in a detached home, including a private swimming pool.

This stylish and luxurious five bedroom property at the heart of Marbella’s iconic Golden Mile, enjoys the privacy, exclusivity and facilities of a villa, together with a central location rare for larger properties.

Sea views or mountain aspect? Why not both? Rooftop terraces often boast stunning 360 degree views of both the coast and mountains that are hard to equal. Illustrating the point perfectly is this five bedroom penthouse in Magna Marbella. Built to the highest standards, the views are stunning and the buyer gets the chance to enjoy the Marbella villa lifestyle of outdoor living, but with the convenience of an apartment.

Large terraces give the homeowner creative freedom to utilise the area in their own way, be it as a solarium, BBQ area, Jacuzzi spot, chill-out lounge with bar, or a combination of all. They can even be converted into rooftop gardens for those with green fingers.

In Marbella, the high quality apartment complexes offer superb facilities, equal to or better than those found in all but the most luxurious villas. In many cases gymnasiums, squash courts, pools, large gardens and Jacuzzis are available for residents, but the community of owners takes care of their maintenance, making for a hassle-free way of life.

Penthouses are the perfect fusion between function and location. In Marbella many offer spectacular views of both the mountains and the Straits of Gibratlar without having to sacrifice the convenience of the city lifestyle.
