The property market, like all consumer-based ones, is always evolving and incorporating new technologies, trends and social reactions. Not surprisingly, the Covid situation has had a big impact too, and it is being reflected in the latest home designs, especially in Marbella.

Over the past decade or so we have seen a large architectural and technology-based change in the properties for sale on the Costa del Sol. From villas in Nueva Andalucía to beachfront penthouses in Puerto Banús, a 2020 Marbella home is significantly different to the one you would have come across some ten to twenty years ago.

To begin with, they are more modern in architectural styling, feature open-plan interiors and also state-of-the-art kitchens, bathrooms and home automation technology, with spacious outdoor terraces that have become lifestyle zones complete with fire pits, splash pools, hot tubs, bars, barbecues and even entire outdoor kitchens and chill-out zones.

Wellbeing, the latest trend
But now there is a further development, as projects grow a little smaller, more intimate and feature boutique styling and ambience. The sense is to create not only opulence, comfort and safety along with top amenities such as swimming pools, spas and gyms, but also to enhance wellbeing through space, proximity to nature and inspiring sea and country views.

The Covid-related confinement experience has also spurred the more universal adoption of remote working, and as a result of more time spent in your own house it has also become more important once again, with people spending a greater portion of their resources on decoration, renovation and home purchases.

What buyers in Marbella are looking for now is space, adaptability to make it their own unique home, gardens, green zones, large terraces and also areas that can be converted into offices, studios and also more informal working spaces integrated into the fabric of home life. Each person’s professional needs and personal preferences play a role in shaping this, but overall it’s a clear trend.

Country and suburban locations have taken on a shine, and those new developments situated in downtown urban areas are adapting to these new demands as well. On the Costa del Sol, villas and apartments for sale in new developments in Marbella and surroundings are also following the latest trends, increasingly offering all the above, along with on-site co-working spaces and professional support services, making it possible to work remotely and cut out that wasteful daily commute.
