Altos de los Monteros, Marbella
STUNNING duplex in a beautiful, newly built modern complex in Altos de Marbella,just a 5 minute drive from alluring beaches and the Marbella arch. This glamorous south-oriented home boasts magnificent views, top-of-the-line qualities, and a feel of luxury & comfort all around. The home has been recently completed, upgraded with high-end finishings, and is ready to move in, key in hand.
A semi-private elevator takes us to this fantastic penthouse. On the first level, we find an open-plan living area, bright and spacious, with raised ceilings that give this particular apartment a feeling of openness as you walk in. This duplex has beautiful Porcelanosa flooring throughout, and a well equipped kitchen that features a gorgeous quartzite countertop island, perfect for entertaining or enjoying a relaxing brunch. A pretty view of the hills can be enjoyed from the window over the sink. All ceiling lights throughout the house are energy efficient and dimmable, for an easy change in ambiance depending on the occasion.
The living room is perfect for a cozy gathering, with a bespoke fireplace and a beautifully designed accent wall as the focal point of the room, giving the space a sense of warmth, elegance and serenity. The built in shelves are a really nice feature, and can be used to display books or decorative items. On the opposite side of the apartment we find the guest bedroom, stylishly furnished with a double bed and even a quaint, built-in desk and shelves, perfect for a quiet retreat. We also find the downstairs bathroom, which offers a spacious shower with large slabs and specialty fixtures.
The fantastic downstairs terrace expands the length of the entire first floor, an impressive 17.5 meters, and can be accessed from the living-room, as well as the guest bedroom. It fits a large table, perfect for gatherings on a warm Andalusian summer evening, or a fun-filled family lunch. The automatic awnings can be extended to protect the area from the sun, if desired. At the far end, there is a private nook, with a welcoming sitting area where one can enjoy a nice glass of wine, a relaxing conversation and, of course, the fabulous views of the Mediterranean, the city of Marbella and the nearby mountains. A little slice of paradise at home!
A sophisticated modern stairway with a large window (with sea views) leads us upstairs, where we find the master bedroom, a luxe and inviting space from where one can enjoy spectacular views of the sea and the coastline while lounging in bed. On a clear day, the outline of the African mountain range can be seen, as well as Gibraltar and the nearby Sierra Blanca mountain range. The room comes with ample built-in closets. The ensuite bathroom is done in black slabs with white veining, which juxtaposed with the white sink and cabinetry make it simply stunning!! On that same level we find a large second terrace, perfect for sunbathing, since it is perfectly private, and where one can enjoy a snack at the high table and, undoubtedly, the wonderful 360º views. It comes equipped with an outdoor shower, a nice addition for a quick refresh while enjoying the summer sun.
Back on the first floor, the laundry room is separated from the kitchen by a door, where there is space for storage (like a pantry) and we find a washing machine. There is additional storage under the stairway. All appliances are top-tier brands (Siemens). The apartment has central cooling/heating air in all parts of the house, with independent thermostats in the living-room and bedrooms, as well as heated flooring in the master bedroom and bathroom on the second floor.
The complex is modern, with clean lines and a nice swimming pool area, where one can spend a relaxing morning or afternoon in the sun or under a tropical-style parasol. The gardens boast mature vegetation, like olive trees, that offer a nice natural shade during the summer heat. Residents also have access to a clubhouse, with a gym with weights and other equipment, as well as a lounging area for parties, gatherings, a large TV to watch sports or movies, a fully equipped kitchen, a bathroom and a nice terrace with a dining table. The area is one of the safest in Marbella, still, the community is gated and has security cameras throughout the property.
This wonderful penthouse-duplex has everything one could desire to simply move in, and enjoy the Marbella life! It is certainly a must-see!
