Nueva Andalucía, Marbella
Location! Accessibility! Security! South-West orientation! Rear is set back from the road with direct views of the pool. High-quality automatic security blinds. Very sunny terrace.
When location is the one criteria upon which there is no compromise, often the style and quality of the property has to come second. With Casa Vivi there is no such compromise.
Location, quality, style and comfort are all presented in abundance with this fabulous 3 bedroom home in the very heart of Nueva Andalucia. Despite its central location, within walking distance to Centro Plaza, Puerto Banus and the beach, this home is 1 of 10 agrupada apartments in a pretty and peaceful cul-de-sac. New to the market and created by a young London designer, this is a property that should be seen to be truly appreciated.

These stools help connect the eye with the teak furniture on the terrace – linking the interior and exterior space.
TV Satellite: TV can be connected to various satellite channels [UK, German and Spanish]. TV connections in bedrooms, mezzanine and lounge/saloon, with space for the main TV to be placed on the wall below the mezzanine.

The chairs are Kartell Master Chairs, designed by Philippe Starck. The minimal, 3 panelled sliding door features UVA/UVB treated glass.
