Mallorca house description

GENERAL
This gated home is nestled in the 11th century village of Fornalutx, just minutes from Soller and the beach town of Puerto de Soller. The home has been lovingly converted from an historic olive mill. Antique ceramic tiles accent the bathroom and kitchen walls, and all metal work including, gates, door fixtures, lamps, etc. have been hand-crafted by the town blacksmith - once the mayor of the town, and now our caretaker. Once you enter the gate, you are welcomed by cascading bougainvilleas, climbing roses, lavender, orange trees, and rosemary, and the soothing flow of the creek nearby. There are 5 parking spots - 4 cars can fit within the gates, and one just off the street.

INTERIOR
The home has 4 bedrooms, 3 newly remodeled/updated baths and a newly remodeled/updated kitchen. The eat-in kitchen has a dishwasher, microwave, gas and electric stove and oven, and of course, a refrigerator. The living/dining room serve as the center of the home and has an open fireplace, elevated ceiling and opens onto the terrace, pool and garden. The view from the living room and terrace is vast with roof tops, bougainvilleas, majestic mountains and the magnificent valley below.

GARDEN
The pool is flanked by climbing roses, bougainvilleas, hibiscus plants and the orange grove. Sitting by the pool is one of the world’s greatest treats, with the gentle flow of the creek; the distant sound of the goats’ bells as they climb the hills; the lingering scent of jasmine and orange blossoms; and spectacular view. Just beyond the pool and orange grove is the petanc court (bocce ball). We’ve had some great tournaments there!

BEDROOMS AND BATHS
The two upstairs bedrooms share a beautifully remodeled bathroom with antique mallorcan tiles. The larger bedroom, with king size bed, has a terrace overlooking the garden and valley. The second bedroom has two twin beds and a view of the dramatic mountains. Both rooms have A/C. The third bedroom is off the foyer, and has a double bed. This bedroom is steps from the second full bathroom with shower and tub. The fourth bedroom is a studio off the kitchen and has a separate entrance - this room uses the third bathroom, that has a free standing shower.

VILLAGE
The home is very private, despite being just a 2 minute walk to the village plaza. As you walk along the cobblestone streets, you pass the carefully tended stone homes, all of which contribute to the beauty of the village. The plaza is the center of this ancient Moorish town with a quaint, fully equipped convenient store, a bank, post office, natural and traditional pharmacy, bakery, and several wonderful restaurants and cafes, and a magnificent church. The cafes at the plaza are open from the early morning until 1 or 2 or 3 at night (depending on how much fun you are having - the owners tend to stay open as long as you are ordering). There is also great hiking trails just steps from the house.
