Luxury villas perfect for renovation in Guadalmina Baja

Guadalmina Baja is one of the most prestigious and established addresses in the greater Marbella area. And not surprisingly, for this is a very privileged location on a largely level tract of beachside land. The area is at once private and peaceful, and on the other hand very centrally located. Within no time you can be on the crossroads that take you to San Pedro Alcántara, Estepona, Benahavis, Puerto Banús, Nueva Andalucía and downtown Marbella – all within 15 minutes of your luxurious villa set within a large plot on a leafy, quiet street near very private beaches.

As one of the first residential areas developed in and around Marbella – it’s potential was spotted very early on by Basque investors – Guadalmina Baja and the golf course many of its properties look out over, is well-established, with little undeveloped land left. There is the occasional plot left for the construction of a villa, but overall this is a well-established, mature address with beautifully styled luxury villas on large private plots and a small collection of boutique townhouses and beachside apartments.

Renewal in a top location
Though almost all the properties here are in very good condition, and it is an established location for much of Spain’s elite, there is a trend of renovation visible in Guadalmina just lately. Some new land infill projects of modern villas, townhouses and apartments have arisen and been successfully marketed on the fringes of Guadalmina Baja, but within the suburb itself the past year or so has seen a noted increase in the renovation and modernisation of especially villas. In some cases, this entails just a make-over renovation, in others a detailed reform, and yet others a complete rebuild.

In this way, new modern villas are being created within the top location of a ‘picked first’ older residential area, which in many ways combines the best of both world – modern style and comfort with a classic beachside setting. The reasons for this new spree of villa renovation in Guadalmina Baja are several:

  • Owners upgrading their properties for their own use
  • Younger generations inheriting and modernising homes
  • Homeowners renovating their homes for sale
  • Investors buying older properties to reform/rebuild and sell in a top location
