For many years, townhouses have been overlooked in the Marbella area, overshadowed by beachfront penthouses, frontline golf apartments and of course luxurious villas—but now they’re making a strong comeback as buyers realise these stylish properties offer space, comfort and privacy in a way that blends elements of both apartments and villas.
It all started with a new generation of townhouses whose sensual architectural styling and modern technology had property buyers in Marbella take note and see townhouses in a new light. Luxurious semi-detached villas added further lustre to a property type that had long stood in the shadow of apartment complexes and private villas. With sophisticated modern homes of this kind being launched on the market, townhouses suddenly became very sought-after as an ideal middle point between apartments and villas that offers space, privacy, modern conveniences and style, while combining the best qualities of both.
The attractive, sleek lines of today’s townhouses, with their spacious open-plan interiors, state-of-the-art kitchens, luxury bedrooms suites with modern bathrooms, and private gardens with terraces are in many cases added to by panoramic rooftop terraces with lifestyle features such as outdoor barbecues and kitchens, bars, plunge pools/hot tubs, and dining and lounging areas – all with lovely sea and/or mountain views. Many such properties have the same luxury features as a Marbella villa or penthouse, blending a more compact, family-friendly format with the added advantage of private parking and your own garden.
Ideal family homes in Marbella
The latter feature has been particularly appreciated by homeowners during the Covid period, when having a private garden proved to be a godsend. It’s another reason why many are now looking for townhouses to buy in Marbella and surroundings. Townhouses are ideal family type homes, with independent bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms for optimal privacy, living spaces on the ground floor, and ample outdoor areas. The townhouses for sale in Marbella also benefit from a very family-friendly environment close to all amenities, including excellent schools.
