This unique frontline beach (100% lega - no noise from the N340 l) villa between Calahonda and La Cala de Mijas was built in 1968 next to the famous, 500 years old and 12 meters high antique tower and 10 - 12 meters above the sea. The villa has been reformed completely in 2000/1 with the most luxury elements. The sea views are amazing!! The plot has 2.475 m2 and the living area is about 370 m2. The whole finca is protected by high walls and a 103 meters long front-line balustrade. There are 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, hot shower in an external patio, guest toilet, play- and TV- room, living room (90 m2)with fireplace, laundry, big and full furnished kitchen, salt-water- swimming pool, paddle-tennis-court, guest house(50 m2)with 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom. Possible extension for 3 more bedrooms and 3 bathrooms (140 m2). Automatic gate, illumination system LUTRON, sound system LINN, own well and automatic irrigation. The demand for frontline beach properties remains very high and at the same time the supply is quite low. In addition a substantial percentage of all frontline beach properties have legal issues. As a result of them those properties cannot be extended or refurbished but only maintained or in worse cases they finally could be demolished. Exactly therefore we mentioned at the very beginning of the property description that this villa is 100 legal.
Unfortunately many estate agents and lawyers are not experts in town hall planning regulations (PGOU), coastal law (ley de costas) and POTA. We at Citadelle Consulting have the right professionals (experienced technical architects who work in this field since over 30 years) on board who double-check every single property for our clients PRIOR to the purchase. The Spanish system/law provides perfect security/clearness but you and/or your advisors need the experience and knowledge to deal with it.
Some additional information which might be of interest for people who are interested in frontline beach opportunities:
The Spanish Government´s Council of Ministers has approved the Draft Bill on the Protection and Sustainable Use of the Coastline, amending the Coastal Act 1988, to be submitted to Parliament. The new legislation will protect the coastline from urban over-development and will generate confidence, increase economic activity and provide legal security to the public and to companies. The Vice-President of the Government, Soraya Sáenz de Santamaría, stated that the amendment "protects our environmental wealth, reconciles environmental protection with sustainable economic activities, will liberate us from urban atrocities and provide us with tools to guarantee and improve the legal security of homeowners on the coast, as well as of those carrying on economic activities such as the beach bars".
The Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Environment, Miguel Arias Cañete, underlined that the new legislation has three objectives: to reinforce protection of the coastline, increase legal security and generate confidence and certainty for homeowners on the coast and for economic activity. Among the measures to protect the coastline, the minister highlighted that the new law reinforces the ban on new buildings. "This law is not laxer or more tolerant, but rather it is a law that will help reinforce the ban on new construction". The Draft Bill bans improvement works on existing buildings, both in the land-sea public domain and in service areas, resulting in any increase in volume, height or surface area. In this respect, Miguel Arias Cañete clarified that "there is no amnesty on illegal constructions", but rather "a clearer and more transparent regulatory framework" is established. The minister explained that the new law introduces the so-called ´anti-Algarrobico clause´ that regulates the possibility for the Government to suspend illegal urban activities on the coast to avoid irreversible situations, always leaving the last word to the courts. Furthermore, urban beaches are distinguished from natural beaches, increasing the protection for the latter.
La Moncloa reported that with regard to the measures to generate legal security, the minister stressed that the scope of the Land-Sea Public Domain is clarified and citizens are guaranteed access to updated information on their properties and other rights. To that end, assets in the land-sea public domain must be registered in the Property Registry. Citizens may consult whether their land is affected by limitations in the public domain on the Internet. This measure will contribute, argued the minister, "to improving the confidence of foreign investors and help reduce the stock of unsold properties".
Miguel Arias Cañete stressed that all buildings constructed on the coast illegally will be demolished, such as the El Algarrobico hotel. 1,100 concessions on properties expire in the year 2018, which will result in their demolition.
