Sierra Blanca is one of the most desirable residential areas of Marbella’s Golden Mile. But what exactly makes Sierra Blanca so desirable? Cilo Marbella unravels the best-kept secrets of one of the most sought-after locations on the Costa del Sol.
Starting, of course, with its location. Sierra Blanca is uniquely situated at the foothills of the mountain range sharing the same name. The famous peak of this impressive mountain is named La Concha and can be reached by foot. Sierra Blanca, meaning ‘White Range’, is named after the lack of vegetation on its slopes, which leaves the pale grey limestone rock exposed.
This luxurious area is located right above Marbella’s famous Golden Mile. The term ‘Golden Mile’ has traditionally referred the coastal area that stretches from the western border of Marbella city to the famous marina of Marbella, called Puerto Banus.
The very fact that it’s solely a five minutes’ drive from the centre of Marbella, Puerto Banus, and the sun-drenched beaches, makes Sierra Blanca the centre stage of real estate in Marbella. An ideal area to live all year round.
Location, comfort, exclusivity, and privacy are the main ingredients for luxury. Sierra Blanca homeowners do not even need to leave their gated community in order to enjoy the Lagos de Sierra Blanca, one of Marbella’s elite’s country clubs including a fully equipped gym, indoor pool, sauna, and steam room. Naturally, it is a popular meeting point among neighbours to socialise and enjoy a drink.
Another reason for its popularity is the selection of schools within a 10-minute drive. Permanent residents are able to choose from a wide selection of high-quality, private schools.
Nearby, the road between here and Marbella’s Golden Mile is also home to the famous Olivia Valere nightclub and restaurant, and there are other local bars and restaurants in the immediate area. Furthermore, there are international schools within a ten to 15-minute drive, plus supermarkets, boutiques and medical centres. Golfers also have an unrivalled selection of golf courses to choose from, including Las Brisas and Los Naranjos in the heart of the Golf Valley in Nueva Andalucía.
Sierra Blanca residents enjoy 24/7 security service, supported by camera vigilance.
The community of Sierra Blanca is known for its prime quality, luxury villas and landscaped gardens. Many believe Sierra Blanca properties are among the best property investments in Marbella. As a result, resale properties are in great demand. But premium quality comes at a price. The current house prices start around €2.5million (€800 and €1,200 per m2).
The luxury villas for sale in Sierra Blanca are characterised by the elegant living environment, astonishing views, and convenience of their privileged location. Consequently, luxury villas in Sierra Blanca are not on the real estate market for long.
