FS Mallorca by Christina Libuda | 4th June, 2021 | Prime Properties
Incredible comfort, endless privacy and spectacular scenery abound here. Nestled in the luxury development Cap Adriano in Santa Ponsa, on a rocky outcrop in southwest Majorca, this villa stands as testimony to the design genius of the Spanish architect Guillermo Reynés.
Looking out across the endless blue expanse to the horizon line, the sense of freedom is palpable.
For those who have always dreamed of a home by the sea, this villa on Majorca’s southwest coast could well be the moment of fulfilment. The incredible views stretch far beyond the Malgrats Islands, just off the mainland, where the sun disappears down into the sea in the evenings to a dramatic display of colours.
In Nova Santa Ponsa, the romantic coastal scenery is combined with charming living environs. The proximity to Palma and the international airport, just 25 minutes away by car, makes this an absolutely prime address in the southwest corner of Majorca. Three prestigious golf courses are just three minutes away, adding still further to the appeal of this location. The marina known as Port Adriano is also within walking distance. It was the vision of Philippe Starck, the acclaimed French designer, back in 2012. And is renowned as one of the most state-of-the-art marinas anywhere in the Mediterranean. Designer boutiques and various bars and restaurants infuse yet more local Spanish charm to the area.
The villa itself is located on Cap Adriano, an exclusive residential development on this rocky outcrop of coastline. It was built in 2018 to a design by the architect Guillermo Reynés of GRAS Arquitectos. Overall there are eight apartments, two penthouses and nine villas, all enjoying concierge services and round-theclock security. The rooftops of the villas have been planted with rosemary so that they blend in perfectly with the surroundings. The same is true of the stone design elements, some of which feature inside the property and some around it. They were uncovered during the building of the villas and have a beautiful reddish hue typical for the region.
The interiors span some 800 square metres, extending over three floors. Thanks to the fully glazed elevation looking out to sea, the views looking out across the expanse of blue can be enjoyed to the full from almost all rooms. Alongside the spacious living areas, the ground floor also presides over two guest suites. There are three bedrooms, two of which feature en suite bathrooms. The master bedroom awaits on the upper floor too, with its own living room and two further suites, also with en suite bathrooms. A private spa, home gym and wine cellar can be found on the lower ground level. An elevator connects all floors. The generous dimensions of the layout and an abundance of natural light create a bright and airy feel throughout. The Berlin architecture studio Sibel Huhn is the mastermind behind the interior design. Light hues and natural materials strike a harmonious balance between modern design and traditional influences.
Meanwhile, outdoors, the extensive terraces are laid with beautiful quarry stonework, which gives the villa a distinctly Mediterranean feel. The 1,844 square metre plot benefits from a 16-metre pool and barbecue area, and makes a wonderful oasis in which to enjoy an exclusive al fresco lifestyle. At the bottom of the grounds is perhaps the biggest highlight of all: a small path leading along the rocks down to private access to the sea.
