an architectural gem of 510 square metres
immaculately restored and modernised from its 1896 creation with no compromise on luxury.
A special home in a prime location
The property is within walking distance of sandy beaches, the magnificent Tramuntana mountain range, and everything else the charming town of Soller has to offer. The mission in reforming this historic mansion was to create a home with an uncompromised year round living experience, while ensuring the heritage not only lived on but enhanced its lavish style. It has 5 vast bedrooms, a south facing garden, and a roof terrace with panoramic mountain views. Fitted with cutting edge technology and modern finishes, this house is for a client who appreciates comfort, luxury, and an intimate connection with the space around them.
Embracing the 300+ days of sunshine a year, this house has an oasis like garden and an expansive roof terrace. One-of-a-kind in its urban surroundings.
The extensive reformation saw all the historic sections painstakingly restored to their original glory while adding modern comforts and luxuries throughout.
Designed by Parisian architects in the late 19th century this property exudes french charm with 5 meter ceiling heights and hand made details throughout.
When scientists discovered the benefits of vitamin C in the late 18th century Sóller’s citrus trade boomed and the town saw a massive influx of wealth. It was during this time of opulence in 1896 that this townhouse was built. Parisian architects were hired and materials such as stained glass and wood were shipped in from all over the world. The result is a property with an air of grandeur and impeccable detail rarely seen anywhere else on the island. The property was kept within the same family who built it and tirelessly looked after it for 120 years until its most recent reformation.
A UNIQUE PRIVILEGE IN THE HEART OF TOWN
The imposing building presides over an oasis like garden with a state-of-the-art swimming pool, private dining area, and plentiful sunbathing spaces.
Centered through the garden is a heated salt water exchange swimming pool. The pool is comprised of just 6 expansive tiles resulting in a minimalist elegance that fills the garden with tranquility. Heated via the eco friendly solar-integrated pellet boiler system it can be set to any desired temperature. A feat of engineering built for year round enjoyment.
Other standout features in the garden include an original restored well, a Dornbracht exterior hot and cold shower, and generous sunbathing space. The intimate dining area sits nestled amongst lemon trees and herbs with views across the pool and garden. Delicate uplighting of the house provides a subtle evening comfort that keeps the emphasis on the raw architectural values of the property.
