Palatial mansions, luxury villas, super-sleek penthouses and modern, elegant townhouses populate the maze of leafy streets that overlook Marbella’s famous Golden Mile from 300 metres above sea level. Sierra Blanca’s elevated location gives its properties unrivalled views over the Mediterranean and towards the Rock of Gibraltar and Morocco’s Atlas Mountains. Much like the nearby La Zagaleta residential enclave, Sierra Blanca is home to some of the Coast’s most breathtaking and luxurious properties, and is rumoured to have its fair share of celebrity residents too. This is a place where private swimming pools are not just a simple 10×5 in the front garden, but sprawling, cascading, architecturally-designed pieces of aquatic wonder replete with infinity edges, fountains and bridges. It’s a place where burly Bentleys, top-of-the-range Mercedes and powerful Mustangs cruise through electronic gates and into spacious basement garages. It’s a place where 10 bedrooms don’t mean a small boutique hotel but a home. To put it succinctly, Sierra Blanca is a place where luxury and exclusivity combine to create a highly prized neighbourhood.
It’s not all huge mansions and enormous villas, however. Sierra Blanca also caters for those looking to enjoy the good life in more modest yet still exclusive surroundings. The residential estate’s smattering of stunning apartment complexes provide comfortable living for those without stratospheric budgets.
Sierra Blanca’s perfect positioning at the foot of the mountains means that it is at arm’s length from the hustle-and-bustle of the coast, yet also within easy reach. Golf courses, tennis clubs, beaches, shops, bars and restaurants are only a few minutes’ drive away, as is the glamorous marina of Puerto Banús with its designer stores and trendy restaurants.
In Marbella, the words ‘Sierra Blanca’ have come to mean much more than the breathtaking mountain range that overlooks it. They have come to mean upmarket luxury and exclusive living.
