Heaven 11: new-build, modern villa in La Zagaleta, Benahavís

Case Study:

A large and luxurious contemporary residence, built on a large plot with stunning Mediterranean views, just under the top ridge of one of the most high-end urbanisations in Europe, La Zagaleta. The design features lots of light-filled living space, a cutting-edge kitchen, nine en-suite bedrooms, including a stunning master suite, and a whole entertainment floor under the landscaped garden with indoor heated infinity pool, fitness suite, cinema, wine cellar, and garage fit for a car collection.

What TM did:

We were asked by an existing client, with whom we have undertaken several building projects, to source land opportunities anywhere in premium areas of Marbella for new developments.

After locating several opportunities, we decided to focus on La Zagaleta, given the shortage of new properties coming to the market in the urbanization. A fantastic plot became available and the client seized the chance to buy it, as it has 270-degree views of the coastline, all-day sunshine, and is conveniently located next to the north security entrance.

We have assisted the client with the selection of the architect and builder, and once the license was obtained from Benahavís Town Hall, building work has now begun. Terra Meridiana has been selected as the exclusive sales agent to market the property, the ultra modern villa for sale in la Zagaleta, The Heaven 11.

Stage 1: Laying the foundations 14-01-2017

Work began on the construction of Heaven 11 at the start of 2015. We started by clearing the site, moving earth, and building a series of stone-clad retaining walls to reach the desired elevation above the lower street level. This allowed us to create a flat, level base for the foundations. The next step was […]

Stage 2: Building the basement

Once the foundations were in place, we began to build the perimeter and interior walls of the basement level, which will be the entertainment hub of the house, once completed. The ramp in the foreground of the images leads down to the garage; the box in the centre will house machine rooms, the sauna, steam […]

Construction work on the house is now completed, so plastering of the external walls has begun. At the same time, the terraces surrounding the outdoor pool have been waterproofed, as these areas will eventually be grassed over, and the pergola that will house the chill-out area and bar next to the jacuzzi has also been […]

Stage 6: Finishing the façade, terraces, and swimming pools

The façade is now almost completed, with just the pillars for the upper floor terrace and the pergola still to be plastered. Meanwhile, a concrete screed has been laid over the waterproof layer, both on the terraces and in the outdoor and indoor pools, prior to putting down the final finished surfaces.
