Mansour bin Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the deputy prime minister of the United Arab Emirates and half-brother of the current president, has acquired a 25-hectare estate, the Finca Moratán-Bornoque, located less than half an hour from Marbella and nearby a property owned by Julio Iglesias. The estate is 750 meters above sea level, in the town of Monda, between the Sierra de las Nieves Natural Park and the Costa del Sol.
Bonifacio Solís, one of the largest developers in Estepona and Marbella, sold the property to the Arab investor for 14 million euros, after initially having requested €16 million. The transaction was carried out through Al Nahyan’s firm East And West Investment Spain S.L., domiciled in Valencia de Alcántara.
Finca Moratán-Bornoque has a large farmhouse with a ground floor and an upper floor, with a constructed surface area of 1,104.71 square meters, a guest house, two guardhouses, three smaller farmhouses and a 72-meter pool with surrounding gardens.
The estate also consists of more than ten buildings for use with cattle and horses, along with a 60-meter dam used for irrigation and fire prevention.
