A beautifully restored townhouse with original details ready for the modern family that appreciates the finer things in life and a high-end unrepeatable living concept!
Casa Sa Mar stood ready in 1896, commissioned by a wealthy Mallorquin family moving back to the island from France, from which the inspiration can clearly be seen throughout the house. Big spacious rooms, elegant ceiling paintings, an adorned olive wood floor, and various small details give an aura of Paris to the house, while its Mallorquin heritage is also very clear with its exterior stone walls, roof tiles, and wooden beams. In restoring this piece of history careful attention has been taken to update while keeping the spirit of the house, not disturbing the original architectural flow but still creating a modern living space. Original details such as intricate tile floors, olive wood parquet, crystal ball staircase ornaments, marble sink, have been kept. Natural local materials are combined with the highest quality renown appliances and fittings from Vola, Miele and Duravit. A living concept is not complete without furniture, and Casa Sa Mar has been meticulously and carefully furnished from top to bottom with a combination of furniture from Cassina, Fritz Hansen, Carl Hansen & Son, Herman Miller and Hay, custom furnishings designed by Durietz Design, and many antiques sourced from the island. All to create a completely unique, calm and luxurious Mediterranean living space. The 450 m2 townhouse with ceiling heights of up to 5m and a large courtyard with a pool, is the perfect residence for someone who wants to live life in spacious luxury with walking distance to the sea, mountains and everything that the beautiful village of Sóller has to offer. The house is sold as a complete living concept, fully furnished and ready to move in, created by Durietz Design & Development.
The bottom floor: gives a great first impression with its big and bright socializing space. It’s the perfect area for receiving guests, cooking or just kicking back and relaxing. The entrance of the house offers a magnificent first impression with its large fine wooden doors, opening up to a grand open space bottom floor with a 5 m ceiling height. You are welcomed by a solid marble block reception table doubling as a kitchen island for the hidden kitchen along the left wall, that opens up to reveal a full bespoke kitchen. On the other side of the entrance we find the office/library, a delightful space with its one-of-a-kind olive wood floor and ceiling paintings. Beside the office is the spacious bottom floor bathroom with a solid one-piece marble sink which 120 years ago was put in as the kitchen sink. Going up half a small staircase from the entrance you have the dining room with a small terrace outside with access down to the patio and pool area. It is adorned by a wonderful fireplace.
The first floor: there are two spacious bathrooms, a stately living room with its 50 m2, 3,5 m high painted ceilings, and two double bedrooms. The bedrooms have beautiful original details, and each its own balcony with large windowed doors to enjoy in the breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains when waking up in the morning.
The Attic: has a homely living space with spectacular views. The spacious attic provides a rustic touch with its inclined beam-clad ceiling and original refurbished clay floor tiles. It contains three bedrooms, a studio living room, two bathrooms, and an ample walk-in-closet. The attic lets in plenty of light from the skylight above and offers stunning views of the mountains to the southwest. The two bedrooms offer spectacular views and you wake up spirited to a view of Sóller with the church in the distance and the Tramuntana mountains in the background. If you wish, the studio can also easily be converted into a sixth bedroom.
The courtyard: a private oasis in the middle of Sóller. The southwest oriented open-space courtyard has a lovely sheltered dining area with an outside kitchen and BBQ mixing with a calm saline pool and plenty of lounge space. Catering to the carefree Mallorcan outdoor life.
