M™ller Immobilien is constructing a magnificient condominium complex on a hilltop overlooking Marbella - an idyllic spot, high above the whirl of life in the town, yet only three minutes away by car.
Casa Grande is a complex of 58 high-quality apartments and duplex penthouses of two to four bedrooms set in a lush tropical garden and enclosed within its own protective walls. Built on the ideal Southwest orientation and surrounded by natural parkland and dramatic mountain scenery, Casa Grande affords a panoramic view, from the millionaire's playground of Puerto Ban“s to the imposing Rock of Gibraltar, with the African coast behind.
The complex itself comprises 20,000 square metres of tropical gardens, in which are set the 58 residences, distributed over sixteen buildings which follow the natural contours of the land, to ensure that the imposing views from all apartments are uninterrupted. The gardens contain subtropical plants and trees to provide colour and scent throughout the year. Two sets of cascading pools and several conservatories enhance the tranquillity of the gardens, which are illuminated at night.
The two swimming pools are available for the use of residents, and there is a host of other services available through the reception, which is located in the centre of the complex. As well as the usual security, maintenance, satellite television and other helpful services, it is also possible to obtain a range of optional extras - from daily newspapers to car washing.
The apartments themselves will be of a very high standard to ensure the purchaser's complete satisfaction. There are fully fitted kitchens with the prestigious Nuzzi range of fittings with a state of the art modern gourmet kitchens with high-tech appliances and high-quality granite tiles on floor and walls. Bathrooms and sanitary areas have marble floor tiles and matching marble walls, together with Duravit fittings. All windows are of top-quality double-glazed aluminium. Those in the bedrooms have automatic sliding shutters and mosquito nets. Internal doors and carpentery are of noble wood from either Lualdi-Porte or Scrigno and have solid brass door fittings. The outer door is massive teak, with three locking security points.
The floors of living areas are tiled throughout with marble, featuring Travertino marble in the master bedroom. There is underfloor heating by electric radiation, and air conditioning, both of which can be individually regulated throughout the residence. The various electrical and televisual/telephony fittings used, including the Bticino intelligent house-controlling system, are of the high standard which have come to be expected in all M™ller Immobilien developments. Parking is provided in underground garages, which have 24-hour security like the whole complex and are connected by Otis lifts to the apartments.
The residences themselves range in size from two-bedroomed 199-square metre apartments to four-bedroomed 760-square metre duplex penthouses. All have spacious covered and open terraces - some encompassing an area of 206 square metres! All terraces overlook the magnificent coastline, providing that perfect spot to relax with a drink before going out to enjoy the sparkling nightlife close at hand in Marbella and Puerto Ban“s.
In fact, all sorts of leisure activity are close to hand, from walks in the surrounding nature reserve to world-class golf courses and tennis clubs, from shopping in the area's exclusive retail centres to dining in the world-class restaurants.
Casa Grande itself has a Spa Club, membership of which is optional for Casa Grande owners. Benefits of the club include fitness areas, beauty treatments, heated indoor pools and saunas, as well as children's games areas and special facilities at neighbouring golf and tennis clubs.
The climate of Casa Grande, protected from prevailing winds yet with a dry, cooling breeze in summer, is another plus for those looking for the perfect Costa del Sol residence. The combination of quality, traditionally Andalucian architecture with a touch of Bali, the latest high-tech amenities and the breath-taking surroundings have proved to be a strong selling point for the Casa Grande complex.
