One of the most stunning penthouse in Marbella ever to hit the market! This apartment has never been on the market in its history and in 2013 was completely stripped and renovated by the current owner.
The house has some incredible history attached to it. Everyone knows the famous song by Barry Manilow ´Copacabana´ and as it turns out it was ´Lola´ who ended up living in the apartment in the late 40´s and 50´s. As the story has it the Copacabana was owned by a Cuban mobster Rico Castelli who in 1947, fell in love with two Copa Girls, and when he kidnapped one, people from the Copacabana brought her back. When the damsel-in-distress (Lola) met with her boyfriend, Castelli tried to shoot them, but his girlfriend shot him in the back before he could do so.
At this point she could not stay in America and fled to Marbella where she lived in the apartment in solitary.
The penthouse consists of 3 large double bedrooms all with en-suite, with the master bedroom overlooking the beach and out to sea. From every room there is a sea view and being so close you can hear the waves gently crashing on the sand.
The house has been completely renovated and now has full underfloor heating and polished concrete floors. The kitchen is a fully integrated Italian design all imported from Italy and for the best heat efficiency Schuco aluminum has been used throughout on all the windows and doors.
The apartment boasts it´s own private lift to the pool and beach area accessed by an owners key.
