Hipoteken’s monthly mortgage model
Interested in purchasing a luxury Spanish home with a mortgage? To help you budget, we’ve done a true illustratrion of the cost of buying a high-end property using products available today.
For this month’s example, we’ve picked a magnificent new villa in Málaga city in the Costa del Sol, on the market for €1,450,000. Read on to see how affordable your monthly repayments could be and what your total outlay (completion costs) would be to secure the property – or a similar one with the same purchase price.
This stunning four-bedroom villa occupies an elevated site in the peaceful green suburbs of Málaga, giving it panoramic views of the city and sparkling Mediterranean. Ultra-modern and architecturally bespoke, the brand-new property is part of the boutique El Mirador development within the Colinas del Limonar urbanisation.
Built over three storeys, highlights on the ground floor include a large hall, huge airy living area, fully equipped integrated kitchen and single bedroom. Upstairs, the master bedroom is en-suite, while the remaining two bedrooms share a bathroom, but all have access to wonderful terraces. Throughout this stunning home are floor to ceiling windows and contemporary French windows that optimise natural light and the breath-taking views. Not forgetting the basement, which is ideal for storage but could be used as a home cinema or games room, or converted into further accommodation.
The property sits on a large 535-square-metre plot. The rear south-facing terrace, which flows seamlessly from the interior living space, includes a large outside dining area which leads to an infinity pool. The remaining space includes a landscaped garden, outside parking space and two-car garage.
On the market with Costa del Sol agent JT Estates, this upmarket development is just five minutes’ drive from culturally rich Málaga city-centre, with its seafront promenade, historic old town, majestic shopping streets and countless tapas bars and restaurants. The city’s famous beaches are equally accessible, while Málaga airport is just 15-20 minutes’ drive away.
Our featured property is one of ten within the development. The interior layout, including the number and distribution of bedrooms, and the exterior landscaping are different for each property, so interested buyers can choose the one best suited to their taste and budget.
