Properties For Sale in The Golden Mile
Marbella’s renown as a jet-set resort for the wealthy, Hollywood stars and European aristocracy was initially forged on the Golden Mile. Specifically, at the iconic Marbella Club, which opened in the 1950s and soon became a hub of global glamour. Over the years, that golden age was transformed into an era of contemporary chic, with former holidaymakers making Marbella their permanent home. Today, Promas Estates is perfectly placed to provide modern-day homebuyers with the ultimate in sumptuous villas and breathtaking penthouse panoramas along the Golden Mile, which actually extends for eight kilometres from Marbella town centre to Puerto Banús.Villas | Apartments | Townhouses | Penthouses
For homebuyers seeking the most select luxury living, Promas Estates has an exceptional portfolio of properties along the Golden Mile, from palatial mansions to state-of-the-art duplex penthouses. The most spectacular and highly-coveted apartment complexes are located along the coastal strip, all the way from Marbella’s urban outskirts to the outlying areas of Puerto Banús.
In recent years, there has been increased development of other impressive apartment estates on the non-beach side of the Golden Mile’s main connecting road, with stunning townhouses also dotted among these exclusive communities. As for villas, Promas Estates’ elite clients can choose between the Golden Mile’s original seaside luxury havens and the more recently built mansions in suburbs such as Sierra Blanca.
As the residential area of the Golden Mile ends at the highway bypass, it doesn’t extend up into Marbella’s mountain areas. However, many of the ultra-exclusive properties are on elevated plots and offer exceptional views towards the Mediterranean coastline, effectively providing the verdant and almost-rustic serenity of a mountain setting. When it comes to beachside properties, the Golden Mile has no rival. Its seaside villas and apartment complexes are among Marbella’s most dazzling residential jewels.
The Golden Mile residential area appeals to anyone who wants to enjoy the finest aspects of the famed Mediterranean lifestyle. As always, this begins with the choice of a new home, and Promas Estates can make sure that this important decision proves to be a memorable one. For many, living within comfortable walking distance of the sea is of paramount importance, and it would be difficult to find a more exceptional luxury beach setting than the Golden Mile.
Others prefer a more sedate lifestyle in the quieter tree-lined areas of the Golden Mile, safely settled behind the gates of a select urbanisation or the high walls of a mansion with impeccably landscaped mature gardens. Sierra Blanca, for example, is one of the most prestigious residential addresses in Spain – and indeed the whole of Europe. Whatever your preference, throughout the Golden Mile you will be among like-minded homeowners who know how to appreciate life and live it to the full – and are discretion personified.
Lower and middle-floor apartments are available from around €500,000, although the average price is closer to one million euros, depending on the location and level of communal services and amenities. For penthouses, prices tend to start at one million euros and rise to three million euros for the most luxurious frontline beach properties. The same applies to townhouses, with their setting – close to the beach or further inland – having an influence on the price, which averages around €900,000. As to be expected in a residential area of Marbella that is renowned for its absolute exclusivity and security, most villas are priced at two to five million euros, with the more grandiose costing over €10 million.
The Golden Mile is perfectly situated for visiting Marbella’s diverse attractions as well as must-visit places elsewhere along the Costa del Sol. Locally, Marbella’s Old Town offers a charmingly peaceful setting for discovering the area’s venerable history and impressive building monuments. For a more vibrant evening out, Puerto Banús is renowned for its celebrated nightlife, both for those happy to head home after a late-evening cocktail and others who like to party until sunrise.
During the day, golfers can play at one of the top courses in Nueva Andalucía’s “Golf Valley”, inland from the Golden Mile or east of Marbella’s urban centre. Fine dining is a key element of Marbella’s DNA, and the Golden Mile is full of outstanding culinary establishments, covering refined tastes from the exotic to the classic – and a wonderful fusion selection in between. For a tranquil trip to the country, the neighbouring municipality of Istán offers a bucolic village setting, a placid reservoir haven and the trekking gateway to Marbella’s emblematic La Concha mountain peak.
The eight kilometres of Golden Mile coastline are home to the most exquisite beaches. In the more secluded areas, they offer an air of sophistication where the more discerning and discreet residents and visitors like to spend their days. Other beach areas are more popular with holidaymakers although, again, they have also chosen this area for its high levels of discretion and luxury services and amenities. Some of the beaches are linked to such iconic hotel establishments as Marbella Club and Puerto Romano Beach Resort, with elegant restaurants and bars almost lapping the sea.
Nearby in Puerto Banús are many of Marbella’s most chic beach clubs and private beach lounging areas. The Golden Mile is also ideally located for exploring Marbella’s other popular beach areas, west to the San Pedro de Alcántara promenade and east from Marbella town centre all the way to Mijas municipality.
