Modern style properties featuring the sleek white-plastered architectural styling, open-plan interiors, spacious outdoor living areas with infinity edge swimming pools, hot tubs and fire pits have become the most sought-after kind of property for sale in Marbella and surroundings ever since they first came to prominence almost ten years ago – and the love affair with modern property in Marbella continues to this day!
During this time modern styles and newly built properties on the Costa del Sol have evolved, of course, and now they have moved away from minimalist austerity to a gentler form that incorporates more natural materials and traditional Andalusian design elements. These can include modern interpretations of the classic Spanish patio, Mediterranean roof tiles and more eclectic combinations of décor that occasionally feature individualistic art and antique pieces.
This said, modern, newly built homes remain the most popular property type on the Costa del Sol, particularly in top high-end locations such as Marbella’s Golden Mile, Nueva Andalucía, La Zagaleta, Sierra Blanca, Los Monteros, Elviria and the New Golden Mile that runs from Marbella west to Estepona. The desire for modern property applies equally to villas, apartments and even townhouses and a new generation of stylish semi-detached houses, and the choice of design options and technical specifications is growing all the time.
Modern home features in Marbella
The most typical options include open-plan interiors with stylish contemporary state-of-the-art kitchens, comfortable bedroom suites with walk-through dressing areas and Zen-style bathrooms, as well as luxurious terraces that are outdoor living spaces in their own right. Many have not only sleek swimming pools (often heated), but also sitting areas with fire pits and even poolside kitchens and dining facilities.
Luxurious new penthouses and apartments in Marbella now also often come with private hot tubs and/or splash pools on their terraces, on top of the communal gardens and swimming pools with sun decks, while both villas and apartment complexes often boast their own tennis/paddle courts, professional gyms, indoor heated swimming pools and spas with sauna, Turkish baths and his/her changing areas – much like a five-star resort hotel.
