Villa Palo Alto | Benahavis | Marbella | Costa del Sol | Spain

15,069 Sqft - Province of Malaga

Property Description

Located in “La Zagaleta” one of Spain’s most exclusive private residences resorts, this beautiful villa is the epitome of luxury and high-end living. Situated 18 kilometres from the coast, and just a short drive from the bright lights of Marbella, guests can experience the tranquillity of the countryside while being within easy reach of the buzzing Costa del Sol. Cool and contemporary, the villa sits imposingly on a hill near Marbella and the beach overlooking the sea. Four bedrooms and bright minimalist interiors let you enjoy Marbella in style.

This is a super contemporary state of the art villa with minimalistic but stylish interior design and lots of light. Your first impression will be one of size and space, as no photograph can do justice to the vast 1,400 m2 footprint. All the furniture and decor is on a grand scale to fill the space, carefully selected to give a laid back designer twist to the lofty Scandinavian style interiors.

In order to provide you an even more exclusive experience, by renting our Villa Resorts in la Zagaleta directly with us, we will provide you access to the New Course Los Barrancos, horse ridding facilities and Helipad.

Even as you enter the villa you are met with a floor-to-ceiling glass wall looking straight out on the pool and contemporary stone walkway leading the eye to the Mediterranean sea on the horizon. The lofty living room has vast windows to the garden reaching up to the double-height ceilings, an almost invisible barrier between the straight indoor lines and the soft undulating panorama outside.

One of the property’s pools stretches out between two wings of the house; the other is located indoors and has an inset hot tub. You can either work up a sweat in the villa’s gym or in the sauna and Turkish bath, and at the end of a day of sightseeing or sunbathing, retreat to the media room.

Split over three floors and situated in peaceful private grounds, the property offers guests an unrivalled level of comfort, space and light. White walls, two-story windows edged in dark metal and a flat gray fireplace surround give the great room at Villa Palo Alto a modern, open-air feel.

The main living area is the perfect spot for guests to relax, socialize, entertain or organising a formal meeting. A large and fully- equipped modern kitchen opens directly out onto the outdoor dining space and through to the gardens.

Each of the 4 bedrooms and adjoining en-suite marble brand new bathrooms are exceptionally spacious, and offers lovely views out over the surrounding area. These include an indoor and outdoor swimming pool, Jacuzzi, sauna, steam room and a professional GYM with private cinema in the lower floor. The apartment is located on the basement, offering additional accommodation with living room, and small kitchen.
