Villa Melendez is a superb frontline beach mansion with spectacular sea views in the prestigious area of Los Monteros in East Marbella. It is private and secluded yet situated only a 5-10 minutes’ drive from the centre of Marbella and Puerto Banus.
The villa has been developed around the ancient tower that sits at its very core. Recently fully renovated, the owners have successfully incorporated this historic landmark into a modern and contemporary space that perfectly combines the old with the new. Apart from the tower the property is mainly laid out on one level, arranged around an interior Arabesque style courtyard with a fountain, palm trees and a covered gallery. Villa Melendez is divided into two areas: the prime living space in the southern part and the separate guest quarters in the northern part.
The main salon is a vast modern space created for living, dining and entertaining; designed entirely in white, which opens up onto the terrace and the breath-taking views of the Mediterranean. In one direction this leads through to the indoor heated pool with retractable electric roof for all year bathing, a gym and a cinema room. Elsewhere there are the individually designed bedrooms including a wonderfully appointed master bedroom which also opens to the gardens and has spectacular sea views. There is also a gourmet style kitchen and a second prep kitchen, with formal and informal dining rooms opening on to a lovely covered terrace.
The guest quarters can be accessed from the courtyard and comprise two en- suite bedrooms plus a self contained staff apartment. In addition, the tower itself contains a unique guest en suite bedroom and access to a large chill-out terrace enjoying fabulous sea views.
There are several exterior entertainment zones and chill-out areas, a Balinese Gazebo in the tropical gardens, a fantastic large outdoor pool, an infrared sauna and steam room, a covered BBQ with dining area and sitting areas overlooking the sea, and direct access to the beach.
Villa Melendez is a truly unique property located in one of Marbella´s best areas and on one of the best beaches.
