Properties for sale in New Golden Mile, Marbella

The New Golden Mile is the name given to the area of land which lies between San Pedro de Alcantara and the Eastern part of Estepona on the Costa del Sol, connecting both Marbella and Estepona towns. The main coastal highway runs along this stretch, and divides the New Golden Mile into two distinct parts. The Northern side which encompasses some small towns, villages and urbanizations and is popular for its lower land prices with plenty of small shops, supermarkets, eateries and cheaper developments, whilst the Southern, beach side offers a more upmarket buyer access to luxury real estate, with sq. metre prices for land being up to triple those on the North.

Belonging to the Municipality of Estepona, the New Golden Mile has undergone significant development in the last couple of decades and its beachside developments are now the first choice for people seeking luxury properties. Unlike Marbella´s Golden Mile, which is consolidated with little or no space for new development, this area has plenty of scope for smart new architecture, high quality builds and is home to the most prestigious villas for sale; all with stunning views on great beachfront locations. Thanks to the positive way in which the Town Hall of Estepona has planned expansion throughout the area, this could be considered to be the "real" Golden Mile.

As well as economically different, the area is geographically distinct, the area north of the road is slopes slowly upwards towards the foot of the local Sierra Mountains giving those who do not mind being further from the coast, the chance of sea views, whilst the Southern beach side of the road offers a short stroll to the shore and sandy beaches. The unspoilt beaches in this area are always less busy than their Marbella counterparts giving a feeling of privacy and solitude.

The New Golden Mile appeals differently to different buyers so one should be well aware of this when searching. Some amazing developments, such as the frontline beach Emare project offer luxury that is hard to compare. For those on a more limited budget, the North side of the highway can be a great option, with a wide range of properties from apartments to Villas. As the properties for sale in New Golden Mile are built in attractive contemporary complexes they appeal to different nationalities and for those looking to settle with children, there are some great and highly sought after International Schools in the area.
