Mallorca – The Ultimate Escape to the Mediterranean
Mallorca is blessed with Caribbean-style beaches and stunning landscapes as well as a range of social, cultural and sporting events. Along with it’s idyllic landscapes, there are fantastic shopping possibilities in the authentic city centers of Palma de Mallorca, and delicious Spanish cuisine, famous for being the most diverse and tasteful of Europe. Sotheby’s have sought out some of the most beautiful residential properties in this investment hotspot, and have outlined their favourite Mallorcan property for The Sybarite.
The island was named the best place in the world to live by Sunday Times and Financial Times, and boasts wonderful, picturesque ports and bays, surrounded by mountains with breathtaking views. Many exclusive properties with plenty of privacy and security are found in these most exceptional surroundings of Mallorca. Enjoy the mountains in the West region of the island, be close to the incredible golf courses Mallorca has to offer, or rent a stunning seafront villa with spectacular views to the crystal clear and fresh Mediterranean Sea. This Balearic island has more than 280 different beaches of all different kinds, some of which are only accessible by boat.
On the southwest tip of the island, just 20 minutes from the capital Palma, you can find Port Andratx; a lively yet peaceful port where sunsets can be watched from one of the relaxing terraces along the romantic boulevard. It is not without reason that this area is fast becoming the new investment hotspot where the most outstanding properties are found.
Nestling in the hills overlooking this picturesque port, there is a unique new residential property called “Infinity” that represents the ultimate in space, design and finishes. Designed by premier Architects García-Ruiz, Infinity represents infinite beauty. Comfort, Mediterranean lifestyle, and family life were the keystones during the development of this Mallorcan property, and therefore it is open to the landscape, with large spaces, views of the sea and lots of natural light. Infinity blends modern with traditional, creating a warm, inviting atmosphere and a contemporary but welcoming family home. It is beautifully dressed, in such a way that the interior design is perfectly integrated within its surroundings, and it benefits from breathtaking views to the mountains and the bay of Port Andratx.
The plot has significant gradients which have been fully utilised to optimise the views and its spacious layout. With unique curves and the main façade facing towards the coast, the house is completely open to the landscape as if it were part of the nature. The challenge of delivering an exceptional product whilst respecting the landscape and surrounding architecture has been truly fulfilled, as the architects have designed the Mallorcan property to be a unique shape, allowing its future owners to enjoy the best views of this beautiful setting throughout the year.
For the interiors, the best international brands were sourced to ensure an exemplary finish. As you enter the property, you encounter a stunning double height entrance hall which leads directly to a magnificent living room surrounded by windows of more than 25 meters, with open views to the sea and the port. The floor extends towards the exterior with a grandiose terrace, a 21-metre infinity swimming pool, and a large landscaped garden with beautiful Mediterranean planting.
The top floor is a more intimate space, comprised of an en-suite master bedroom with private balcony and spectacular views of the Mediterranean Sea, together with three more en-suite bedrooms as well as a spacious office. The lower ground floor features some incredible facilities: a spa, sauna, relaxation area, gym, family room, home cinema, bodega, a 10-metre indoor swimming pool and a show garage with a rotating platform to show off your favourite vehicle.
Finally, the villa has three en-suite guest rooms and private parking for over 12 cars. The attention to detail and comfort is unbeatable, and the Mallorcan property includes one of the most up to date technical systems allowing full control of the air conditioning, ventilation, lighting and all the electrical equipment in the house and remotely.
