Modern villas and apartments are more popular than ever on the Costa del Sol, thanks to their sleek styling, attractive open-plan interior layouts and many advanced features that build on the latest technology to make life not just more convenient and comfortable, but also more exciting.

Here are some of the must-have features you can now expect in your contemporary Costa del Sol property:

1. Luxurious in-out living
There used to be a clear divide between interior living spaces and terraces. The latter were mostly limited to partly covered spaces with terracotta tiles overlooking a lawn and swimming pool, but today they are so much more that they actually form a real extension of your stylish, comfortable lounge and dining areas. What’s more, they’ve become truly sophisticated lifestyle areas, perfect for homelife and entertaining, with their comfy lounge and outdoor dining, splash pools and often outdoor bar and/or BBQ areas.

2. Home automation systems
From security and lighting to shades, climate control and also home entertainment, the domotic home management system is here to stay – and still largely a feature associated with the latest modern homes. You will find them, from pre-installed to completely made-to-measure, in new villas, apartments and penthouses for sale on the Costa del Sol and you won’t want to make do without them anymore.

3. Sleek 21st century kitchens
Gourmet kitchens that look like designer items yet can cook up a storm and cater for even the biggest party or event are another of today’s fantastic extras once considered to be a pipedream for all but the grandest of mansions. The actual style, materials, finish and configuration varies according to your taste, but modern kitchens have the ability to look smart, cook smart and then ‘disappear’ without leaving obvious signs of culinary activity, which is how they can be incorporated into open-plan living spaces.

4. Modern gas fires
Whether this applies as a modern indoor or outdoor fireplace, or indeed a fire pit for your garden seating area, today’s gas fire is an attractive, clean and functional design and engineering marvel in its own right that adds a touch of 21st century warmth to a modern home. And yes, it really does heat up a room.

5. Under floor heating
Stylish and refined though they are, no modern bathroom is now complete without under floor heating. It ensures those lovely marble, stone or ceramic tiles are always comfy and warm underfoot, and your bathroom is the pampering place it is meant to be.
