By Salma Hwedi on - 6m. reading time

The mega mansion Las Velas is a Drumelia exclusive listing. Nestled on an impressive 5.000 m² plot, this newly refurbished 2.394 m² south-facing villa features 7 bedrooms with 7 bathrooms, an indoor heated pool, an outdoor gym, and much more. The 3-level stunning mansion is one of the most outstanding properties currently available. It is located on Marbella's Golden Mile in the gated community of La Quinta de Sierra Blanca and priced just under €18,000,000.

The house's name is Las Velas, which means 'The Sails'; in this case, referring to the boat sails used as decoration throughout the house. We will see many details related to the marine theme, which makes this property truly one-of-a-kind.


The driveway leads to the underground garage and the house's front yard. It is paved with micro-cement and has finishes filled in with artificial grass. We have a spacious platform for outdoor parking for many cars and a lovely water feature just next to it. This house is a mix between traditional Mediterranean style and modern architecture. It has been recently refurbished and impeccably decorated. Initially, it was designed by a famous local architect Marcos Sainz, who is famous for his talent for organising spaces and integrating his architecture into the natural landscape.


This wooden door greets us with glass on the sides. From the very first moment we step inside, we appreciate the generous space of the house that has been designed to impress. It has a spacious hallway with gorgeous blue chairs and a beautiful painting. Throughout the property, we will see many elements in this blue colour, and the idea behind it is to transmit the atmosphere of the marine theme.


The pocket doors lead to the formal living room with an impressive vaulted ceiling, a large fireplace in the middle and a cosy seating area. It is nicely staged with luxury furniture and decorations from famous Italian brands. The white and blue chandelier that hangs from the ceiling looks like bubbles and brings lots of character to the living room. The white grand piano completes the total look of this living room. The floor is made from the property's original marble and looks magnificent, combined with wooden carpentry.


The left wing of this property has a guest bathroom and a generous-sized kitchen in a modern minimalist style. It has top-quality appliances from Miele, an island, a built-in glass wine cooler from Gaggenau and a cosy area that allows you to enjoy your morning coffee or afternoon tea. Behind the kitchen is a pantry with direct access to the outdoor parking. Another practical feature is the food elevator that delivers the food from the basement, where all the cooking magic happens, and we have a professional industrial kitchen with Gaggenau appliances. From the kitchen, we come into the large formal dining area with a very tall ceiling, another chandelier similar to the one in the living room, and direct access to the covered terrace with an al-fresco dining area. This space has a lot of air and light thanks to the floor-to-ceiling windows from the German branch Schüco that unite the indoor and outdoor space.


The garden offers fantastic open views, a gazebo with the possibility of installing an outdoor kitchen, several sunbathing areas with a vast pool of a unique shape, and an outdoor gym fully equipped with Techno Gym machines. From here, we can observe the facade of the building and La Concha Mountain just behind it. Honestly, it looks like a postcard and offers total peace, harmony and privacy. There is another outdoor seating area, which is covered and connected to the living room. It allows you to enjoy the fantastic view towards the garden and pool area.


This office has a wooden panel, double-sided fireplace, comfortable sofa, coffee table and beautiful mats on the ground floor level. Luxury is a keyword when we speak about this office. Returning to the hallway, we have a beautiful patio, a defining feature of the architect Marcos Saenz and helps bring even more natural light to this property.


The west wing has three massive suites. One of them faces the house's front yard overlooking the landscaped gardens. On the left side, we have two bedrooms of the same size, facing the pool area. Let's see one of the suits. The bathroom is made of top-quality marble, with a vanity, walk-in shower and bathtub. Each bedroom in the house has its walk-in closet executed with dark solid wood. The bedroom has a decent size, neutral colours, blue accents, and an excellent study corner. In contrast to the rest of the house, the bedrooms have wooden floors.


The vast marble staircase with a beautiful skylight in the middle leads to the upper level that hosts two bedrooms; one is the Master suite. The other bedroom looks towards the property's front yard; it's a great size and has a walk-in closet made of white wood, a walk-in shower and a freestanding porcelain bathtub.

The Master bedroom is very nicely furnished and has a king-size bed in the middle, a lovely makeup table with some LED lights, a fantastic chandelier on top and concealed lighting installed around the ceiling. It offers two enormous walk-in closets, 'his' and 'hers' bathrooms and a private terrace with a stunning view of the garden and some partial sea views, which are very picturesque, idyllic and peaceful.


The basement does not feel like a typical basement because it has plenty of natural light. We have a games room with a seating area, two further bedrooms and the industrial kitchen, a storage area and some additional space to create a cinema room or anything a new owner desires. Every mansion of this calibre should have an indoor pool, and this house is no exception. The heated pool is over 12 meters long, with natural light inside. We also have a sauna installed, a Turkish bath, a guest toilet and additional space with the possibility of creating another chill-out area.

This elegant mansion's most exclusive lifestyle is guaranteed, surrounded by lush greenery and similar luxury properties. It has it all, including extraordinary settings with fantastic views, and combines the Mediterranean charm, sophisticated design and entirely functional and practical well thought-out features.
