El Madronal 108A2, Spain

The design of 108A2 is a departure from the conventional contemporary with warm finishes, rich textures and chic wall coverings.

The use of stone, wood and steel throughout provide a sophisticated elegance. The kitchen is modern but not without these touches of glamour as the units provide indirect light, with black columns disguising two complete fridge freezers and a beautiful 90 cm oven in classic Gaggenau design. In between there are a variety of pull out columns for simple and comfortable storage. The island is simple yet special at the same time, creating a ying yang in between table and counter – work and leisure. Metallic glass pendant lights hang above the breakfast bar creating drama against the modern backdrop.

 

The cantilevered stairs appear to float out of the wall and the glass balustrade allows views across the immense entrance space. Upstairs are two more en-suite guest bedrooms and the other en-suite master bedroom.

Mixing gold and beige the second master bedroom is a nod to midcentury-modern thanks to the incredible wardrobe carpentry and sensor lighting as you open the doors. The bathroom layout is open yet private, with a his and hers wall hung sink unit behind which is a toilet and a shower, both finished with the most stunning handpicked black ribbon-patterned onyx stone.

 

Outside, the back of the house curves around the large terrace area allowing views of the whole property at once. An iridescent mosaic tiled infinity pool leads back to the stunning southerly views across the Mediterranean Sea to North Africa.

 

Propana Group won two awards, including the “Best Single Residence” in the European Property Awards for El Madroñal Residence.

Nestled in the heart of abundant cork and pine forests, surrounded by wildlife and nature, with stunning views down over sweeping golf fairways, the coast and the glistening Mediterranean, the private communities of El Madroñal and La Zagaleta are home to some of most exceptional luxury properties in Spain.

 

From this idyllic location, perched 400 metres above sea level in a haven of complete serenity and calm with commanding country, sea and mountain views, it’s hard to imagine you are only a short distance from the hustle and bustle of one of the most fashionable destinations in Europe – and such is the beauty of this elite neighbourhood. With acres of unspoiled land stretching out around you, 24 hour security, within a gated complex, and a privileged position enjoying complete privacy, El Madroñal is only a short drive to the lavish marina of Puerto Banús and the happening town of Marbella.

 

This is the only location in Europe where you can enjoy spectacular views out over Africa, surrounded by countryside, with all the amenities of the coast’s glitz and glamour close at hand in a sanctuary of absolute comfort and luxury. It is therefore of little wonder that these private urbanisations are home to the world’s elite; from celebrities and politicians to tycoons and royals, El Madroñal and La Zagaleta are without a doubt the most sought after addresses on the Costa del Sol.
