The Mallorcan 117,000 sqm (25 acres) country estate, with its rolling fields of olive, orange and oleander trees, whose grand Manor House is estimated to be more than 200 years old, is currently undergoing a complete and major refurbishment, and is nearing completion.The developers have extensive experience in residential refurbishment creating grand houses in the UK, Ireland, Mallorca and the USA.
This estate and house enjoys spectacular views of the Tramuntana mountains, now a World Heritage Site. The mountains are the back drop to the village with its church spire and the Son Net Hotel. An Agroturismo Licence has been applied for.
The refurbishment of the once derelict Finca has included a new roof and the pinning of the complete house with steel girders; all floors have been renewed with aged wood and polished natural stone; and a new 2 acre Mediterranean garden has been created by award-winning designer Ali Warren-Gash. The structures, façades, external carpentry, plumbing, heating, air conditioning and electrics have all been completed.
An outdoor 16 metre long pool with infinity edge, cleaning suite and chill out area is underway in addition to the 14 metre long indoor pool and spa area with steam room and gymnasium.
The Estate enjoys the large dimensions befitting an imposing Manor House. All reception rooms are between 50m2 and 100m2 and bedroom suites in excess of 45m2. All have many windows or French doors overlooking spectacular scenery and courtyard.
The overall concept for the finished house is a clever mix of traditional and contemporary, though this style can be changed either way as the purchaser becomes involved. Flooring are specially treated natural stone, a soft colour with a warm texture.
Reception rooms are a mix of formal and informal. There is a billiard room, a library, two large salons with grand fireplaces, dining room and kitchen designed and installed by leading specialist Elizabeth Willems . There will be ‘chill out’ areas and a wine cellar with a ‘boveda’ ceiling.
Bathrooms are all en suite will be light and spacious incorporating large walk in showers, some with deep and long baths, recessed mirrors and stone tiled wet areas.
The kitchen and dining room is an exquisite area, long and light, both with an aspect to the east over the lawns and citrus orchard. From the adjacent terrace are steps down to the lawns and gardens.
The ‘spa’ area is situated next to the sunken garden. This area has a sauna/steam room, gymnasium, changing rooms, an indoor pool some 14 metres in length and a bar area serving both in and outdoors.
The extensive grounds have been landscaped and created by Mallorca based designer, Ali Warren-Gash. He has masterminded the design and planting of a spectacular garden specifically tailored to complement the architecture and surrounding area.
Stylistically, it is a blend between old world romantic charm and contemporary elegance. A series of cleverly interlinked Mediterranean gardens devised to inspire the senses through the seasons. Along with this there are orange orchards and pergolas dripping in vines. The design incorporates dramatic features like the lavender field stretching into the hills and numerous private hideaways. A magical place.
The 16 metre long outdoor pool. with infinity edge and pool cleaning suite, was built using state of the art technology. Filtration and lighting will be flanked by semi tropical gardens and stone walling.
This Finca is totally restored inside and out including new roofs, new floors, new internal walls. The entire main building is tied with an elaborate structure of iron beams and columns. Special attention has been made to securing damp proofing and the entire stone facade has been meticulously renovated by a specialist company, including the restoration of the original ‘mares’ or dry stone arches and door surrounds.
All walls have wool insulation to ensure maximum efficiency from the heating and cooling systems. All upper floors have acoustic insulation. A complete and comprehensive underfloor heating system is being installed, complimented by a state of the art hot and cold air conditioning system.
