Renowned architect Cesar de Leyva has designed this 4 bedroom, modern Andalusian style house 500 metres from the centre of Benahavis (Malaga). The plot of land (1.650 M2) enjoys spectacular views of the sea and mountains, including Marbella’s iconic La Concha mountain.
The project is pending final approval of the master plan ( P.G.O.U. ) and construction will take approximately 12 months.
Sr. de Leyva has designed most of the houses in El Madroñal and Roberto Germaux is behind some beautiful building projects in the village of Benahavis.

The design of the house is in keeping with the surrounding Andalucian architecture and the principal rooms all have sea or mountain views. Having built and sold many houses over the years we know that people prefer to go upstairs to their bedroom. They also don’t want to walk miles from their car to the kitchen carrying heavy shopping so the car can be parked by the front door or in the underground garage which has both a lift and a staircase to the upper floors. There is room for lots of parking inside the property.
Open the front door and see across the open plan living-dining room onto the swimming pool and the illuminated (at night of course!) waterfall in the garden.
An open plan kitchen, the family centre point, creates a large space with beautiful views from each window.
The kitchen is fully fitted. A list of all appliances is available.
3 of the bedrooms are on the second floor whilst the 4th one is on the ground floor and can be used as a study.

The village and the municipality offer a tremendous range of cultural and sporting activities plus an array of restaurants and bars. Once registered with the town hall you will be invited to join, mostly for free, many events including cultural trips and sporting events. There are 7 golf courses in the Benahavis municipality. There is a golf school for both children and adults with a practice range, tennis and paddle courts, petanque court and a gym. There is also a municipal swimming pool near the football grounds.
In the main street, there is a national health medical practice and a pharmacy. There are also shops, banks and of course numerous bars and restaurants. Every Tuesday morning there is a lovely fruit, vegetable and flower market.
If you enjoy country walks then look no further than Benahavis! There is a wonderful river walk that winds through the hills following an ancient Arabic waterway. Behind the village, you can walk for miles upriver and spot the occasional waterfall.
