The new waterfront area of Marina de Sotogrande is home to a number of new developments of luxury residences, and one of the developments worth taking a second look at is Isla Carey, a complex of luxury homes of between two and five bedrooms.
Situated within the new harbour area, Isla Carey is a self-contained, low-rise building comprising 61 apartments and duplexes connected to the mainland by a private bridge, and is set within a green area which extends into the centre of the complex. The sea laps the island and some lucky owners will be able to berth their yacht right outside their home. The residences are of differing sizes and layouts and there is a choice of either apartments with between two and four bedrooms or duplexes with three, four or even five bedrooms and up to four bathrooms. Duplexes on the lower floors have private gardens while those on the upper floors have spacious roof terraces.
The beauty of these island developments within Sotogrande's new harbour area is that they are part of the thriving Sotogrande community, yet their island status confers a sense of exclusivity and tranquillity on residents - a short stroll across the bridge and Sotogrande Port is reached, with its busy marina, spacious beach and a choice of restaurants. Back home, peace and privacy are assured. Ranging further afield, other popular leisure activities are available in the neighbourhood, with many of the coast's best golf courses only minutes away. Thanks to the recently overhauled road system, transportation is fast and stress-free - Malaga Airport is an hour away at most on the new toll motorway, while Gibraltar, as always, can be reached quickly. The Sierra Nevada with its ski resorts is nearer than ever.
The apartments and duplexes are spacious, with plenty of private terrace area for relaxation and entertaining as well as communal gardens. The waters of the new harbour area surround Isla Carey, providing cooling breezes and stunning vistas beyond. To match the setting, the complex is to be constructed to a high standard, with all the fixtures and fittings which have come to be associated with developments of this nature in such highly desirable spots. Rooms are well proportioned and the main living areas and balconies are tiled with Macael marble with matching skirting; the balconies also have a decorative frieze. There are also decorative mouldings to the plaster ceilings throughout the main living areas. Kitchens are tiled with vitrified clay tiles and all floors have acoustic impact insulation. The residences are decorated throughout and have double-glazing in the windows, which are of aluminium and protected by external Majorca-style shutters. Balcony railings are painted to match the shutters.
The residences all have hot and cold air conditioning and plentiful hot water due to the top quality fittings provided - there'll be plenty of use for the hot water thanks to hydro massage baths in all main bathrooms and Jacuzzis on the penthouse roof terraces. Many other fittings are provided to ensure both peace of mind and convenience. Safes are standard to provide additional security.
Parking space for residents is provided by the underground garages, which have direct lift access to upper floors, automatic doors with remote control and key and is fitted with an automatic fire detection system. The gardens in the central area have planted areas for relaxation and easy maintenance is assured due to an automatic irrigation system.
All in all, future residents of Isla Carey are assured of comfortable living- the developers and builders have a lot of experience working along the Costa del Sol and further afield, and Isla Carey will benefit from all the latest technology as well as a highly desirable setting.
