Do you know the styles of houses on the Marbella property market?

Mediterranean Andalusian style

In its origins, Marbella and its surroundings, that is to say, Puerto Banus, Nueva Andalucía and San Pedro Alcántara was conceived as an environment with Mediterranean Andalusian style constructions where importance was given to the wide and leafy garden areas, abundance of fountains and water, predominance of the white colour in contrast with the Arabian tile, patios and areas of pleasant shade, typical characteristics of the Andalusian.

Arab style

The influence of the Arab magnates who were interested in Marbella as a place to rest, has also left its mark on the buildings. Houses and villas with the typical Arab style, with pointed windows, patios, water, Moorish style towers, colourful tiles and characteristic ornamental elements, which on the other hand are not at all out of tune with the environment or with Andalusian design.

Classic style

The interest that Marbella arouses at an international level as a place of relaxation and leisure thanks to its magnificent climate and good infrastructure, has led to the imagination of both investors and individuals, but with great economic muscle, is reflected in their houses, villas and mansions in styles such as the classic, stately, elegant, spacious and luxurious inside and with great privacy.

The latest trends in construction in Marbella are the styles of houses and villas of Nordic, contemporary and avant-garde design.

Nordic style

The Nordic design is characterized by minimalism, straight lines, functionality, simplicity and comfort, without excesses but with all the amenities.

Contemporary style

Very much in line with the latter, the contemporary style houses and villas are characterised by their straight lines, abundance of large windows that favour the luminosity of the open plan interiors and are equipped with the latest domotics.

Avant-garde style

Houses and villas with clean and straight lines with exposed materials such as metal beams and structures, large windows from floor to ceiling that favour the views and the entry of natural light into the interior.

This great variety of styles that we can find in Marbella conforms a homogeneous landscape and does not break the visual one thanks to the harmony that has been obtained between the different styles.

As a fact to be taken into account, we should mention that economically speaking, properties with the typical Mediterranean style are usually a little cheaper than the contemporary design villas, always saving the peculiarity of each property, its location and its state.
