Increasingly on the Costa del Sol, it is hard to find a good location to build your own home. Moreover, while those newly arrived in the area tend to aim primarily for the coast and if possible frontline beach locations in Marbella, many of the residents and property owners who have been here for some time tend to shift their focus a little further inland.

Why? Because it offers a more spacious, peaceful and private living environment that combines being surrounded by nature and fantastic sea and mountain views with the convenience of having everything close at hand. In this way schools, shops, restaurants, sports clubs, golf courses and a host of professional services are within a twenty minute range – and many of them closer by.

Building your own dream home
The idea of creating a property entirely to suit your needs, lifestyle and taste preferences is the ultimate real estate dream of many. People restricted to apartments will not have this opportunity, but for those in the market for a villa it often makes more sense than buying one ‘off the shelf’. “Those who want to be close to the beach tend to have to opt for pre-designed villas in developments, but if you want your own land and unique villa, a residential environment like that of Altos de Los Monteros is ideal,” says Diana Dallimore, founder of New Contemporary Homes Marbella.

“Building your own home means you get the property you want,” which doesn’t mean that you actually have to take care of the process yourself, as there are specialised professionals who will take care of the project for you, from architectural design and specification through to obtaining licences, construction, finishing and landscaping.” Altos de Los Monteros ticks many of the boxes for people wanting to build their own villa because it is an exclusive gated hillside community overlooking a truly panoramic swathe of mountain, coastline and sea all the way across the Mediterranean. What’s more, it offers space, peace, privacy, security and a beautiful natural setting at a short distance from all the amenities of the coast.”

Plots are available in this established residential area and though land prices are attractive, they are upwardly mobile as Altos de Los Monteros is increasingly in demand right now. “The area is being discovered, as it were, above all by end-used buyers with a nose for a good investment.” Contact us for more information.
