What makes a modern Marbella villa?

Modern living room decorVillas in this part of the world have always been luxurious and spaciously laid out, evolving with the times through traditional, modernist, rustic contemporary and now modern architectural styles. The latest trend involves not only avant-garde styling, with lots of glass, right-angled white walls and crisp minimalism, but it also takes full advantage of the most up to date technologies available. Now domotics – a fully centralised home control system – is not new to Marbella. In fact, it has been used for over a decade now, but in recent times the breadth and level of sophistication of these systems has evolved to a whole new standing, taking the luxury Marbella villa truly into the 21st century.View from Marbella apartment So what can one expect from a modern home these days? Besides modern styling and décor, state-of-the-art designer kitchens in the latest styles and featuring the latest work in top-shelf appliances. While many of these spaces double as professional catering kitchens, they are nowadays more integrated into the décor and living spaces of the home as a whole, fulfilling an important stylistic role of their own. Expect a sunny breakfast room with lovely views and a covered terrace leading from the kitchen where one can enjoy breakfast al fresco. The living quarters, meanwhile, continue to feature stately formal dining rooms with easy access from the kitchen, large living rooms not unlike classic drawing rooms, and cosy TV rooms where the family can get together to watch films or television. Spa in Marbella apartmentsThe bedrooms almost always have their own en-suite bathrooms, complete with elegant his and hers wash basins, large step-in showers with rain drizzle or power jets, and Jacuzzi baths either rich in marble or more Japanese in style. Terraces are large and look out over lawns more rectangular and pristine than before, leading the eye towards infinity edge pools that merge dramatically with the sea on the horizon. Many of the pool areas contain their own cabana bars where you can relax, play games, socialise or cook and dine by the poolside. However, the part of the house that typically houses the most high technology is the lower level, where the games room, indoor swimming pool and spa, home cinema and wine cellar can be found – not to mention the electronic and pump rooms that manage the whole system. Here you will come across the latest in audio-visual equipment, stylish modern private spas and wine cellars not resembling those of an old chateau, but more like the stylish smoked glass wine cabinets found in modern gourmet restaurants. With everything from your Bang & Olufsen audio-visual system to security, access, doors, shutters, curtains, lights and irrigation centrally controlled and manageable from your own iPhone, it means you have the control over your home literally at your fingertips.
