Costa del Sol Estate | Marbella, Spain
Extremely rare, on the market for the first time in 30 years, this is a magnificent private estate of 22 hectares with superb sea and mountain views. Just a one hour drive from Malaga International Airport, and conveniently situated just off the A7 auto route, 7 min from the coast, 10 min from the old fishing village of Estepona, and 15 min from the famous and trendy highlife town of Puerto Banus. The Costa del Sol Estate, facing the ocean with panoramic views of the Mediterranean and mountains, represents a unique opportunity for the discerning individual who values absolute privacy and security in glorious surroundings abundant with wildlife, yet only minutes from shops, restaurants, nightlife, the Mediterranean Sea and numerous beaches.
Behind electric gates, 2 km of leveled dirt track lead through pine and olive trees up to a paved road and on to a Moorish/Spanish influenced mansion. Commenced in 1986, and completed 3 1⁄2 years later, all materials have been personally chosen by the homeowner, including limestone from Bulgaria, chestnut wood from Ojen, terracotta tiles from Italy, antique marble fountains from Venice and authentic old roof tiles and beams from Cadiz.
The house is designed around a central courtyard, featuring high ceilings, wide columns, stone arches, limestone floors, numerous large Moroccan lanterns and a long dining table to entertain guests al fresco. Rooms on the ground floor around the courtyard consist of formal dining room, large living room and intimate family TV room, all with French doors leading out to the interior courtyard and exterior terraces. A 22 x 22 foot fully equipped chefs kitchen is situated next to dining room, with separate pantry, and large laundry room. There is also one guest bedroom with en suite bath and French doors leading onto the central courtyard, and a Guest Suite, including 2 bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen, living room and private patio in garden. This area could be reconfigured into a gym, spa and massage facility. Staff quarters are self contained, with separate entrance and parking area and consist of one bedroom, bathroom, living room and kitchenette.
A majestic stone staircase leads to the second floor where the master bedroom features two magnificent “his and her” marble bathrooms, two dressing rooms and a large private terrace overlooking pool and ocean. Off wide arched walkways overlooking the central courtyard there are 2 more bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, and an office (or another bedroom) with en suite bathroom potential. The ceilings are very high which give each of the room’s magnificent proportion.
The extensive grounds are beautifully landscaped around the property, with large stone terraces, out door seating and dining areas, featuring a green tiled pool with pool house for relaxing, and separate bathroom. There is also a Moorish style pagoda and a serene olive tree garden with koi carp pond, affording sensational views of the surrounding mountains and sea. The garden has been planted with a profusion of trees, including Palms, Cypresses, Cork Oaks, Jacarandas and numerous fruit trees, banana, fig, pomegranate, orange, lemon, lime, peach, mango and apricot. There is a well on the property which provides all water needed, and is automatically pumped up to the large water tank as needed.
Ideal for potential conversion into a Spa, Boutique Hotel, Rehab Clinic, or Retirement Home, extension to the main house or the creation of other buildings on the extensive property are interesting ideas for Commercial Investors. There is also plenty of space for a helipad, subject to permission from building authorities.
