Modern villas in top locations
In Marbella, the new trend is definitely modern. Modern in architectural styling, but also in terms of the technology, construction materials used and amenities offered. The look and feel of a new generation of properties in Marbella, be they villas or apartments, is sleek, slender and white – homes with large, tall windows that let the outdoor views in and more open-plan layouts that offer easy communication between interior and outdoor living spaces.
In a place like Marbella, with its climate, surroundings and sporty outdoor lifestyle this is important, enabling you to get cosy and comfortable indoors, relax on your lawn or terrace, or take in those stunning sea and mountain views. The problem is, though, many of the best locations are already taken, so while one expects stylish modern properties to arise in new residential areas those very best spots that were taken first are now also subject to a gradual process of modernisation and beautification.
Over the past few years a specialised renovation and reconstruction sector has developed in Marbella that matches local technical and creative skill with that of specialised professionals from across Europe. Using the latest materials and techniques, they ensure old houses in prime settings right on the beach or fronting golf courses are not just given a new lease on life, but also fitted with the latest in energy-efficient insulation, wiring, lighting, broadband and, of course, interior design.
Out of this is coming a very attractive modern design style that retains many of the original property’s most attractive features and blends today’s architectural trends with the early Modernism of the 1950s and 1960s. The result can be stunning, and in the hands of a good architecture, builder and decorator many a future classic is taking shape in some of the most sought-after locations in Marbella.
These include the Golden Mile, Guadalmina Baja, La Zagaleta, El Madroñal, Sierra Blanca, Los Monteros, Nueva Andalucía and the beachside area of Marbesa, where we offer a highly varied selection of beautiful new villas that marry current styles and amenities with classic Marbella charm and top locations. They range in size, layout, orientation and the views and lifestyles offered, whilst the different approaches to this modernising process create a great choice of properties sure to cater to many tastes.
