Nordic inspiration in La Alquería
We are proud to present two exciting villas with contemporary style, quality and luxury amenities yet a layout and feel all of their own. Situated on a gentle slope, they look out over the surrounding villas in this exclusive Marbella suburb, to enjoy an amphitheatre of views flowing along the valley towards the Mediterranean Sea.
In the past few years, the residential suburb of La Alquería has become increasingly consolidated as a new upmarket address located just west of the road that runs from the coastline to the charming hill village of Benahavís.
It is a beautiful spot, close to a choice of golf courses, tennis clubs and spa resorts, with mountains, hiking trails and wooded groves offering open country within a short distance from sandy beaches. La Alquería is also close to all the amenities of San Pedro Alcántara, Puerto Banús and Marbella town, as well as Estepona and Benahavis, but has a supermarket and bilingual international school on its doorstep, as well as a golf course, driving range and clubhouse.
From its slightly elevated position, La Alquería enjoys fantastic views over the surrounding greenery, mountain ranges and above all, the Mediterranean Sea. On a clear day, you can see all the way to North Africa and the Straits of Gibraltar, but with everything within easy range this is an area known for offering peace, privacy and ever-present vistas.
The business end of La Alquería, which houses the school and supermarket, is buffered by a series of highly attractive luxury apartment complexes set within generous greenery, ensuring that the villas beyond enjoy peace and tranquillity. Having matured in recent years, La Alquería is perhaps the first residential part of the Golden Triangle of Marbella, Estepona and Benahavis to be dominated by modern villas, which gives it a very sleek, contemporary feel.
The two villas built by an experienced Norwegian creator of boutique villa developments are entered through a gated street with excellent security. The gates slide open to reveal a driveway leading directly to a double carport and forecourt with stunning water features, while a landscaped garden encloses the spacious homes in a green embrace.
Each home has its own layout and unique architectural features, with the first property containing an attractive modern stairwell encased in glass that leads to the lifestyle roof terrace on the top floor. The modern entrance hall looks out over a pool area, with panoramic lawn and terrace, and also contains a beautifully spiralling staircase that is a design feature in its own right. The lower floor is home to a spacious modern kitchen, dining room and sunny lounge, with a double-sided gas fireplace that adds warmth and cosiness to the living room and the outside terrace.
The pool area also features a fantastic sunken area with a firepit and outstanding views, as well as an outdoor kitchen and dining space, while the kitchen is linked to the parking area through a discreet laundry. The upper floor contains three bedrooms and bathrooms in a spacious layout, with the master suite enjoying the best views along with the largest terrace, a luxurious modern bathroom and a dressing area.
Both villas also feature a spacious lower level that is connected to the other three by a modern lift, meaning that in a just a moment you can move from the panoramic rooftop terrace with outdoor kitchen and lounging/dining areas to the spa, gym, wine cellar or entertainment area that can be created below.
A different layout
Each of the villas has a different layout, setting and feel, with the second property located in a cul de sac and enjoying arguably even more spectacular views across the valley to the sea. The water features as you enter the grounds are also impressive, and the distribution of the stylish yet cosy living room in semi-open layout from the kitchen and dining room ensures not only lots of natural light and views, but also a very pleasant feel.
The terrace, pool and sunken pit are set against an amazing backdrop of sea, as are the terraces of the bedrooms upstairs, with the master bedroom having a particularly attractive and private seating area ideal for relaxing in peace and tranquillity. The villa also features a lower level where a home cinema, gym and additional accommodation can be created.
