Butterfly Residential News - Vladimir Putin buys  £15m Luxury Property Marbella

Sitting on a hill inside Spain’s most exclusive private estate, it is just the sort of mansion fit for a king... or Russian president. So, it is no surprise to learn that the president of Russia has apparently purchased this  £15 million palace project in the heart of the Zagaleta estate, near Marbella. The 4,000m ² luxury property Marbella villa is being built on order for President Putin within metres of homes owned by Rod Stewart and the former mayor of Moscow.

Luxury Property Marbella

A British construction company owner, who has undertaken jobs in la Zagaleta over recent years, revealed that the property had been bought by the Russian leader.

'He's been looking in Zagaleta for a year and finally found this project. He has already knocked down the former home and it is now being rebuilt from scratch. It is an amazing project,' he said. While difficult to confirm the purchase definitively, the Russian leader has family living on the Costa del Sol and has recently made ‘two short trips’ to the area, it can be revealed. A high level security consultant, who had helped organise his trips, confirmed: 'He has a good relationship with Spain and comes here fairly regularly, but security is obviously of high concern. I know he has been here twice on short trips over the last year.'  Sitting on an 18,000m ² plot, the project — one of the largest in Marbella — boasts its own spa and gym, a cinema, piano bar and two swimming pools. The epitome of extravagance, it has 10 bedrooms with spectacular views towards Gibraltar, North Africa and inland to the Serrania de Ronda. Conveniently, it counts its own heli-pad and there are now direct flights to Moscow from nearby Malaga airport to make life easier for its new Russian owner. The landscaped gardens have sunken pools and fountains and there is a 10-car   garage, as well as parking space for 22 friends. The development, which has 24-hour high security, already counts numerous politicians and multimillionaire business men. The cheapest homes start at  £3 million and the membership fee for the golf club and clubhouse cost over  £80,000 a year. Original article & photo source: www.dailymail.co.uk
