Sierra Blanca occupies the lower reaches of the iconic La Concha Mountain that towers majestically over Marbella. Tucked in between indigenous umbrella pines, Sierra Blanca’s elevated position offers imposing views over Marbella and its coastline to the Mediterranean, all the way across to Gibraltar and North Africa.
One of the best addresses in the greater Marbella area, Sierra Blanca enjoys the combination of views, natural surroundings and close proximity to the town of Marbella, the glamorous marina of Puerto Banús and a wide choice of first-class golf courses.
You can be in downtown Marbella within five minutes yet in Sierra Blanca you find yourself in one of the most exclusive villa suburbs on the Costa del Sol, surrounded by nature and backing on to a protected reserve at the base of the mountain.
With everything at your fingertips yet ensconced in a luxurious, gated community with 24-hour security, privacy and stylish surroundings, it is not surprising that the largely consolidated residential area of Sierra Blanca is so in vogue.
Sierra Blanca has been in demand with higher end homebuyers from a wide range of nationalities for some time now. Ranging from British, Spanish and German homeowners to Scandinavian, Dutch and Russian ones, Sierra Blanca is a very international environment that is becoming increasingly popular with affluent Russians in particular.
Besides the appeal of the large, luxurious properties, the security, privacy and the appeal of the address itself, Sierra Blanca is also characterised by its compelling combination of country style pleasures, such as the ability to go for walks in the countryside, combined with being right at the heart of everything. What’s more, Sierra Blanca has some of the most spectacular views anywhere along this coast.
In real estate terms Sierra Blanca can definitely be classified as upmarket, dominated as it is by luxurious villas on sizeable plots of land. They range from elegant villas of around €2 million right up to mansions in excess of €10 million, complemented by some of the most exclusive apartment and townhouse complexes in the region. These may start at about €200,000, but more typically fall within the range of €400,000 to just over €1 million for beautifully designed developments ensconced within lush greenery and featuring stunning modern architectural styling and the latest comforts.
A typical Sierra Blanca villa, meanwhile, will feature subtropical gardens, elegant living spaces, sumptuous marble bathrooms, private spas and home cinemas as well as extensive games rooms, studies, libraries and beautiful kitchens, not to mention jacuzzis, panoramic terraces, large swimming pools with sun decks and poolside bars, guest cottages, gyms and multi-car garages.
