This duplex is a centuries old property, which has been lovingly, lavishly and luxuriously refurbished. It is located in one of the most emblematic and beautiful neighbourhoods of Palma, just a few meters away from the sea.
The first two floors of this ancient house have been refurbished into a modern duplex apartment, following the house-in-house concept, while maintaining some building elements from the 11th and 17th century, which have been carefully restored and integrated. An especially exceptional example of this are the old mares arches, which have been maintained and revived. Entering through a private entry, one reaches the big reception area, which leads directly to the open concept kitchen. The luxurious Gaggenau kitchen aside, the highlight of this floor is the wine cellar, which has been built into an ancient Arabic water tank, as well as further elements of the functions these houses used to serve as, once upon a time. The open kitchen is completed by a big dining area and a green oasis in one of the house‘s patios. On this floor you can also find a second patio as well as a bathroom and the storeroom/utility room. A custom designed staircase leads directly from the kitchen to the top floor, which has been designed and built following top modern German standard. Here you will find a master bedroom with en-suite bathroom as well as a walk-in closet. Further along you will find a second bedroom with direct access to the terrace and a second complete bathroom. The terrace also leads to the big two-part living room area. In order to capture the biggest amount of natural light, the architect has focused on working with open spaces and lots of glass structures, breaking open the old structures and reinterpreting them. Only state of the art materials were used in this renovation. This house is located within 5-minute walking distance from the sea and approx. 100 meters down the street, you will find the Parc de la Mar, which is very popular in Palma, as well as the Cathedral. There are excellent restaurants in walking distance and the prestigious brand-new hotel Es Princep, but you will also find the typical simple Spanish pubs. Since the Calatrava is a residential neighbourhood you will nevertheless experience the unusually quiet and tranquil character of this area, right in the heart of the city of Palma.
