It used to be that all the most luxurious residential areas on the Costa del Sol lay directly within or just outside Marbella. One thinks of addresses such as the famous Golden Mile and its inland extensions, Nagüeles and Sierra Blanca, but also the beachside villas of Los Monteros, the luxurious frontline beach penthouses of Puerto Banús and its lively marina area, and of course the frontline golf villas and apartments lining the fairways of Nueva Andalucía’s Golf Valley.
As Marbella developed so the new luxury areas began to spread outwards too, converting areas that had once been outside of the exclusive belt into zones of peaceful, leafy streets, large gardens and quality homes. Such areas include Guadalmina, the elegant upmarket villa suburb just outside San Pedro Alcántara – a few kilometres west of Marbella town and Puerto Banús – and luxury country clubs such as La Quinta, El Madroñal and of course La Zagaleta, all of which are set within the hills of Benahavís.
The eastern part of Marbella has also gained in stature with such residential zones as Elviria and Santa Clara, but now it is the western area that is positively up and coming, starting with the beachside apartments of Nueva Alcántara, right through to the villas and apartments at Nueva Atalaya and La Alquería, and now the New Golden Mile. Here you will find some of the most exciting new developments of luxurious modern villas and apartments that are taking the architectural styling, comfort and amenities of Marbella properties to a new level.
Marbella’s New Golden Mile
The apartments at Las Terrazas de Atalaya in Nueva Atalaya are a fine example, offering refined modern style in combination with the kind of up to date mod cons that today’s buyer is looking for. Combined with a central yet peaceful location with lovely sea and mountain views that is close to Benahavís, San Pedro Alcántara and Marbella town, it is projects of this calibre that are helping to consolidate areas such as Nueva Atalaya and the neighbouring La Alquería as new luxury zones.
The same is also true of Marbella’s New Golden Mile, a coastal stretch just east of Estepona that has been gaining weight as a luxury area for some time now. At its heart lie first class developments such as Cabo Bermejo and Torre Bermeja, but also Los Granados, Bahía de la Plata and Alcazaba Beach – appealing frontline beach apartment complexes with magnificent Mediterranean views. Just inland from here, a few minutes from sandy beaches, you will find the Syzygy Homes, a community of exceptional modern apartments and private villas that blend the best of a country setting near the village of Cancelada with the advantages of being a short distance away from Estepona, San Pedro Alcántara, Puerto Banús and Marbella.
The stylish properties at Syzygy Homes have been designed with a lifestyle concept in mind, ensuring that this part of the Costa del Sol is not only the ‘Notting Hill’ of Marbella, but also a frontrunner in terms of architectural design, layout, quality and technical standards. In other words; a luxury residential area of the 21st century.
