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.
