Sierra Blanca Vs Cascada de Camoján
The previous part of our comparative guide was dedicated to the ultimately exclusive mountainside enclaves of La Zagaleta and El Madroñal. This time, Marbella Unique Properties continues to stay mountainside, moving towards Marbella, to present the most luxurious, mountainside residential villa areas of The Golden Mile; Sierra Blanca and Cascada de Camoján.
Neighboring gated communities with luxurious villas, Sierra Blanca and Cascada Camoján are located mountainside on The Golden Mile, at the foothills of the most emblematic mountain peak on the Costa del Sol, “La Concha”. The residents of these two privileged areas can enjoy spectacular panoramic views of Marbella’s town, the Mediterranean coastline, and on the clearest of days they can even see The Rock of Gibraltar and the Riff Mountains along the Moroccan coastline. They both combine the tranquility and charm of countryside living with close proximity of the glamorous social life of Marbella town and Puerto Banús Marina. Property for sale in both residential areas range from 1.300.000€ and can go up to 13.000.000€ plus.
The visionary developer Pedro Rodriguez believed that the Costa del Sol could become the “Florida of Europe”, developed Sierra Blanca two decades ago and turned it into one of the most exclusive and secured urbanizations in Spain. Offering a peaceful environment, discretion, privacy, and a high level of security. The cosmopolitan and VIP community of owners and residents is mostly formed by businessmen and bankers as well as famous football players and Formula 1 drivers. Sierra Blanca is popular with Europeans such as English, Spanish, Belgium, Dutch, German, Nordic, French as well as Russian and Arabs.
More discreet and of a smaller size than its “famous neighbor” Cascada de Camoján is equally exclusive and as peaceful as Sierra Blanca. Its 24 hour security service, proximity to deluxe leisure, gastronomy and beach options, and international schools makes it one of the most consolidated and prestigious addresses in Marbella.
Sierra Blanca is immersed in nature, to the north and west side, the urbanization is surrounded by natural park land which allows pleasant relaxed walks or long hiking routes. To the East side the street “Calle Listz” borders the neighboring Cascada de Camoján. To the South, the urbanization finishes on the long street “Calle Albioni”.
Cascada de Camoján spreads down the slopes of the emblematic La Concha covered by pine forests. To the West side, it borders with Sierra Blanca. To the North and East the urbanization is surrounded by nature; the wide stream “Arroyo de Guadalpin” separates Cascada de Camoján from the following urbanized areas. To the South, Cascada Camojan Hill Club.
URBANISATION & PLOTS
Sierra Blanca occupies a very well structured area of one million plus square meters with wide and impeccably clean streets as grand avenues, with a full high security system with cameras and guards. All the streets are named in accordance to famous composers such as Wagner, Mozart, Bach, Verdi, Vivaldi etc… Sierra Blanca is famous for its extravagant villas and spacious plots. In general, we can say that the larger plots are located in the upper part of the urbanization, the more expensive homes with the best views. Lower down to the smaller plots, with minimum size of 1.000 m2.
Cascada de Camoján, in comparison to Sierra Blanca doesn’t offer a formal structural layout; the interior streets are curved and winding offering a more relaxed, romantic country style feel. The streets are numbered rather than named. Similar to Sierra Blanca, the plots are very spacious, starting from a minimum of 1.000m2 and can reach up to 13.000m2. The elevated position of the plots and low building density allows for magnificent views and extreme privacy requested by high net worth clients.
