The Marbella property market, as any, has always been divided between existing resale homes and newly-built ones, the latter often bought off-plan while still under construction. When construction commenced again some six years ago it coincided with a significant shift in architectural styles that created a very clear division between earlier resale properties and new-build ones. Newly built homes in Marbella follow a modern right-angled, white-plastered design with open-plan living areas, modern kitchens and bathrooms, panoramic windows and also the latest building technologies and home automation systems.
Now more than ever, the property market in Marbella is split between charming, spacious resale homes full of character and softer edges, and the more assertive architecture and modern styles and comforts of the villas, townhouses and apartments currently being built. The choice between the two is ultimately a consideration of personal preference and lifestyle needs, especially since contemporary villas in particular are now more compact. The resale/new-build divide also shows itself in terms of location, as the older homes naturally occupy the most desirable frontline beach and golf settings in Marbella, and off-plan homes are found in newer areas.
Some older villas and even apartments and townhouses in Marbella are also being modernised and renovated, or in some cases even entirely rebuilt, and land infill sites – empty plots in otherwise consolidated residential zones – are also being developed. However, for the most part newly built homes on the Costa del Sol are found in newly emerging zones such as La Cala de Mijas, La Alquería, Estepona, Nueva Alcántara and parts of Benahavis. Pure Living offers a special gallery section on our website dedicated to new-build homes, and below is a small selection from it.
