Sierra Blanca Marbella’s Most Prestigious Gated Community: Sierra Blanca

LIVING IN SIERRA BLANCA | THE PERFECT GATED COMMUNITY

A 4km drive from the serene coastline of Marbella, you will arrive at one of the most prestigious areas in the whole of Marbella, Sierra Blanca. Immediately, the word “security” comes to mind. What you will notice are security gates that automatically open throughout the day, not restricting movement of those just passing through. However, the more you explore, the more secluded gates and enclosed residential streets you will come to find. In fact, there are 24h security and CCTV cameras all over Sierra Blanca.

Sierra Blanca consists of approximately 250 houses; taking up most of the allocated land and leaving very few plots to build on. It is worth mentioning that the price per m2 of land goes for €1000. What is considered a small plot here would be 1.200 m2 and can go as far as 1.8 hectares. However, on average a plot is around 2.000 m2. Naturally, the houses are built much closer to each other when comparing them to La Zagaleta. Regardless, you still get incredible amounts of privacy and spectacular views. Don’t forget, this is Marbella’s way of conceptualizing luxury city living.

WELCOME TO SIERRA BLANCA

Driving through Sierra Blanca is a luxury because you can really get a feel for the prestigious atmosphere. Here is a fun fact, all the streets are named after great musicians and composers like Mozart, Bach and Chopin. Wide pavements and streets, along with imposing property facades everywhere you look. The residential area of Sierra Blanca nests at the base of La Concha Mountain, which is part of the Sierra Blanca Mountain range, and is even considered a protected green zone.

Property prices vary from 2.000.000 € euros for the cheapest unit up to above 20.000.000 € for the most expensive ones. The medium price would probably be around the 5-6 million mark. Same as in La Zagaleta sales are currently going very well in the luxury sector of Sierra Blanca.

You could say that when it comes to Sierra Blanca, Drumelia is the expert, as we have sold over 30 properties in the area. In fact, all the sales made from February to March this year were done by Drumelia. For example:

SOLD PROPERTIES IN SIERRA BLANCA BY DRUMELIA

We sold the most elegant classic mansion in Sierra Blanca. In 2019, Forbes valued this property at €40.000.000, even though this figure does not reflect the final selling price, which remains our little secret. Also, we sold our famous Villa Symphony, which was listed exclusively at €13.500.000.

And, just last week we sold another beautiful Andalusian estate that was listed at €9.500.000, on a plot of 4.200 m2. So, you can see how the market moves very actively, to the point where we have a shortage of listings in Sierra Blanca! So, if you were thinking of putting your house for sale and were doubting, then maybe this is the right moment to do so!

Here is one of the most anticipated brand-new villas that will hit the market at an estimated asking price of €13-14.000.000 euros very soon. It has picturesque sea views from the ground floor, which for those of you that don’t know, is highly sought after in Sierra Blanca. This is because almost all houses have sea views from the first floor, but much fewer have sea views from the garden, so it is only natural that properties like these are based at a higher price range.

It truly has top-class modern architecture combined with fabulous views and complete privacy! 2.500 m2 plot, the internal built volume is 1.150 m2. 7 en-suite bedrooms and best quality materials throughout!

Stunning Classic Villa in Sierra Blanca

At the €2-3million mark, we have this Andalusian villa set on a plot of 1.077 m2 and priced at €2.900.000 with very nice views and completely private. If somebody opts for a complete reform and spend €1-1.500.000 euros, you would get an unparalleled result.

And last year’s sales examples (D1859 and D1542) of several similar projects prove that the value of such a brand-new house will be around the €6-7million mark, depending on the final result. Some of our clients invest in these types of properties to partially use them with their family, but also rent them out short term during their absence, creating some extra income.

The cheapest in terms of modern houses currently would be this property.

PLOTS IN SIERRA BLANCA

As we drive past a plot that we sold back in the days to some investors, you recognize its size of approximately 30.000 m2, and the project management helped develop 6 mega-mansions for private use. That was a massive deal and speaking of such, it’s also worth mentioning that the 50.000 m2 plot was also sold by Drumelia. It has amazing sea views!

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

What is Sierra Blanca? 

Sierra Blanca, which directly translates to “White Range”, is a mountain range located in the Costa del Sol, and is the closest mountain to Marbella. It is referred to as a white range due to the lack of vegetation on its slopes, which leave a grey Limestone rock. Although the base of the mountain range has been converted into a high-class residential zone, Ecologist organizations have proposed that the mountains be declared a protected area. The famous LA Concha Mountain is actually part of the Sierra Blanca mountain range. 

Does Marbella have a Microclimate? 

Marbella is famously known for having pleasant weather all year round. And, this is partially due to the coast’s geography. Sheltered by the peaks of the Sierra Blanca mountain range and nestled by the Mediterranean Sea, Marbella enjoys a constant microclimate. This means that when surrounding areas experience cooler, or windier weather, the town is protected from such extremes. 

Can you climb La Concha? 

La Concha sits in the Sierra Blanca mountain range and is the symbol of Marbella. Apart from giving every property in Marbella something to admire from all angles, it is a great way to get some outdoor activity in! On the mountain, there are many hiking routes you can take to get to certain peaks, the most notable being El Cruz de Juanar. The hike is around 2 hours to complete the uphill walk, then less to get back down. Other enjoyable paths are to the peak of La Concha, for those who enjoy a challenge. 

What to do around Sierra Blanca?

Sierra Blanca sits just off of the famous Golden Mile, so it is safe to say that you will never fall short of things to do if you are in Sierra Blanca! On the Golden Mile, you will be able to find everything from Michelin Star restaurants to five-star hotels. Marbella Centre is a mere 2.5 KM journey, and Puerto Banus is only 7 km away! Having two of the most important areas in Marbella for entertainment at your doorstep is extremely convenient! Plus, Aloha Golf Club, one of the largest courses in Marbella is 5 km away, so if you are the sporty type there are plenty of outdoor activities for you to indulge in!
