Not so with Cerros del Aguila, 5 mins from the coast and if you were to time yourself from the moment you left your property to the moment you placed foot on the nearest beach, you’d be closer to 10 minutes than 15. That includes parking your car in an undercover and free (yes, no charge) car park. For most, Cerros residents enjoy views of the sea and of the mountains, hideaway villages and of a sizeable amount of the costa del sol coastline. Cerros has it all. Sea views are nice. Sea views with panoramic vista and mountain views are better.
Being 25 mins from Malaga airport has its advantages as does a 5 min run into Fuengirola’s much loved shopping development, Myramar and less than a 10 min drive to the beach side resorts of La Cala and El Castillo. Does this get any better? Yes, it does. Twenty-five mins to Marbella, 30 mins or a titch more to Puerto Banus and Tarifa hour and a half. Home run!
Those looking for golf, stay where you are. Cerros is home to Cerrado del Aguila, a lovely, picturesque, and challenging nine-hole course which close to 500 google reviewers state is a 4.3 out of five. In the local area, there are five immediate courses, two of which PGA standard (read big boy pants) challenges, plus many coastal courses within 30 mins. Golf? Cerros does golf, and boy does it do it well.
In addition to this awesome location, the great views, tranquil peace a golf course brings, Cerros is also home to the Hippodrome equestrian centre where you can enjoy your love of horses and the outdoor life. Multiple cycle and walking trails are well placed throughout the urbanization. Do you want more? We think you do.
In most cases, areas that provide the natural and manmade features and facilities of Cerros will demand higher than average property pricing, again, sorry to disappoint, but not here. A nicely appointed one bedroom apartment with views, facilities and of a good size are valued from €170,000 and up. A stunning penthouse apartment with huge outdoor terrace and views to die for, around €440,000.
In and around the Cerros area, there is a wide and varied amount of new build, off plan, villas and townhouses, front line golf properties and some real gems. Most budgets are catered for. There’s opportunity for several car parking spaces, super large terraces, peaceful and well-manicured communal gardens, with pool(s) obviously and good-sized storage across all types of properties.
Let’s get down to brass tacks. What can you buy with your money? Well, lots. We can show today a stunning two bed, two bath penthouse apartment in the highly sought after El Higueron neighbourhood with a vast roof terrace, yours for just under €1.1Million. The high points are new as in brand new, the contemporary look and the low points (again folks from my perspective), high service charges, an over built development and high barrier to entry.
Cerros by way of comparison, offers a larger penthouse, with more inside space and far larger terrace(s), outside space, plus two car parking spaces (two) and two (two) storage units. This apartment offers better (in my mind) access to not only the property, the surrounding area, and the apartment itself. As an aside, there is no better way to access your apartment than having your car parking spaces and storage units very close to the lift that takes you to your front door. Price? €595,000. That reader is value. Tremendous value.
All this and more, much more when it comes to the panoramic views, tranquil and picturesque landscaped communal gardens, and low service charges. Whilst a great deal of the coast has seen its increased interest, value, price, and lack of availability, Cerros is the thinking man or lady choice. Hands down. Those two parking spaces need cars and his and her Porsche (electric or full planet power) purchase is fully attainable when your stunning penthouse apartment costs close to half of that with less space and with more on going costs.
So, there you are. When you are out and about looking for properties with a sea view, great space and that offer amazing value, place Cerros on your short list. Call on the G-Team for all your property needs be that buying, selling, investing, or just wondering.
