Golden opportunities for property in Marbella

Golden opportunities for property in Marbella

The Golden Mile – possibly the most sought after residential address in Europe. Legendary as the playground for the rich and famous, with its stunning beaches, first-class restaurants, and iconic nightlife. Understandably, homes here are in high demand and, at Bromley Estates Marbella, we are more than a little excited to be able to offer a number of properties along this exclusive stretch of the Costa del Sol.

Real estate here represents a sound investment, with homes consistently retaining their high retail value. So, whether you’re looking for a holiday home, dream home or a development project, let our experienced team help.

What is the Golden Mile?

The Golden Mile in Marbella stretches from Marbella Old Town right through to Puerto Banus, so called due to the ‘golden’ sun-drenched beaches and exclusive, glamorous properties. The ‘Golden Mile’ region itself actually extends for well over a mile, but the main area is a picturesque beach fronted marble boulevard, lined with palm trees.

Why should I buy property on the Golden Mile?

However you like to spend your time, Marbella’s Golden Mile delivers. Offering everything from top quality restaurants to world-renowned nightclubs and beautiful beaches.

Nightlife – with beach bars, trendy rooftop music venues and nightclubs that are truly out of this world. Add this to a host of exquisite restaurants and you can understand how the Golden Mile manages to entice so many of the rich and famous.

Culture –  home to sculptures from acclaimed surrealist artist Salvador Dali, including mythical creatures, the fabulous ‘Rhinoceros Dressed in Lace’, shells and dolphins. You can also enjoy Marbella Old Town and all the gentle charm it has to offer, where you’ll find ancient castle ruins and historical churches, not to mention artwork by Pablo Picasso.

Sport  – many properties typically feature private gyms. You can also head to the shoreline for water sports or a spot of kite surfing. Marbella is also renowned for its golf courses – enjoy a round or two at one of the nearby courses.

Location, location, location – once you’ve left the airport you just want to be on a sun lounger with a cocktail in hand, right? Well great news, the Golden Mile is only a short drive from Malaga Airport, taking just over half an hour by car.

The Golden Mile area is bookmarked by Marbella Old Town and Puerto Banus –  both easily reached on foot, proffering yet more delights and entertainment

Weather – with an average summer temperate of 28°C, the Golden Mile is protected by the Sierra Blanca mountain range and enjoys its own microclimate. The temperature rarely dips below an annual average of 18°C, even in winter months.

All generations –  whether you’re a young singleton looking to live it up, a retired couple or a family, Golden Mile homes offer something for everyone and every pace of life.

Luxury – properties here typically enjoy features such as private pools, gyms, saunas, state of the art kitchens and enough space and lush vegetation to guarantee seclusion and privacy.

Type of property for sale

Homes available consist of luxury high-end villas, apartments and penthouses – but perhaps more excitingly, we also have a number of opportunities for people looking to develop.

Do you recognise a sound investment when you see it? The Golden Mile attracts a premium price bracket due to the limited availability of land and properties along this stretch. The current economic climate has resulted in a number of repossessed properties becoming available – often these require some work to bring them up to standard, but they offer a great chance to get a foothold in this exclusive area. Favouring a renovation project also presents the chance to make your own mark, putting you in control of the style and finish of your new home so it can fully represent who you are.

The buying processes

If this is your first time buying property abroad it can be a steep learning curve. Why not allow our experienced team here at Bromley Estates Marbella to guide you through the process?

Once you find the perfect home for you, the next step is to draw up a reservation contract. This is standard procedure in Spain – essentially it means that you ‘reserve’ a property whilst your lawyer conducts a thorough investigation of the premises.

Once this ‘due diligence’ has been carried out, your lawyer will provide you with full details of their findings. If you’re happy with everything you can then move the buying process forward to a private purchase contract. This is the formal contract between consumer and vendor, setting out the terms and conditions of the purchase.

Marbella Old Town

Marbella Old Town

So you’ve heard the hype around the Golden Mile but what about Marbella Old Town? Not so much? We thought not. Here at Bromley Estates, we adore this place. Marking one end of the popular Golden Mile stretch, this charming area generates less publicity but, we think you’ll agree, is a key reason a home along the Golden Mile really does offer it all.

Providing a different tempo with its cobbled squares and narrow twisting streets, Marbella Old Town is every inch as glamorous but with a more traditional Andalusian feel.  Whitewashed buildings, laden with sweet smelling bougainvillea, invite you to immerse yourself in its quaint charm.

Plaza de los Naranjos (Orange Square) marks the centre and, as the name suggests, here you’ll find fragrant orange trees shading a plethora of street cafes. A great place to relax with a coffee, whilst watching the world go by.

Ambling around the many paths is the best way to explore – but you’ll find the tourist office housed inside the Town Hall if needed. Around most corners you’ll find chic boutiques, cafes and restaurants tucked away like hidden treasure. Every taste is catered for, from traditional tapas to gourmet cuisine.

Buildings mostly remain in their original layout which dates right back to the 16th century. You can even see evidence of the Arab Castle and ancient wall that once protected this area. For more culture head to the Engraving Museum, which houses works from Picasso and Joan Miro.

With so much variety, it’s little surprise that property along the Golden Mile is highly sought after. Buying here puts all this, along with the Golden Mile’s glamorous nightlife, right at your fingertips and, here at Bromley Estates, we are delighted to have a range of luxury properties available in this coveted area.

Walking the Golden Mile

Walking the Golden Mile

What better way to get a real feel for a place than by taking a walk around?  And, in the Costa del Sol, there can be few better places to take a stroll than along the famous Golden Mile.

As with everything in Marbella, the Golden Mile is everything it promises to be and so much more – several miles more in fact. Extending from Marbella Old Town right through to Puerto Banus the actual area spans some 4 miles (6.5km).

If you want to take in the full stretch, a great place to start is at Plaza de los Naranjos, in Marbella Old Town. As the name suggests, this is a pretty square shaded in ancient oranges trees and from here you can enjoy the many historic buildings and quaint churches – including the beautiful 15th century Santiago Chapel – as you head towards the seafront and main promenade.

Walking the Golden Mile is a straightforward route, predominantly along the palm-lined beachfront. Getting lost isn’t a possibility…getting distracted is!

Things to look out for along the way:

  • Parque de la Alameda – for attractive water fountains and colourful mosaic benches
  • Avenida del Mar— a fully pedestrianised stretch of the Golden Mile, keep an eye out for sculptures by the famous Salvador Dali
  • Paseo Maritimo – for famous beach bars and top class restaurants
  • Views of Gibraltar – if you keep an eye seaward you will be able to glimpse Gibraltar in the distance
  • Marbella lighthouse – standing some 29 metres high, this lighthouse was built in 1864 and is an attractive landmark of the Golden Mile
  • Fabulous property – exquisite luxury villas and apartments line the way
  • Puerto Banus – the end of the Golden Mile is heralded by a tall statue with outstretched arms, marking your arrival at the bustling harbour of Puerto Banus.
