Located at the top of the village in a little enclave of pedestrianed streets in the Old Quarter of Andratx is this 300+ year old house (reputed to be one of the oldest in Andratx) which has been completely renovated with no expense spared. It is very quiet at night yet you are still a two minute walk to the main Plaza and Port Andratx is just a five minute drive away.
Many of the original features have been retained throughout giving the house a fabulous rustic charm yet with up to date fixtures and fittings sourced from England, France and Spain.
On the first floor there are three generous bedrooms all of which have been given a neutral, calming makeover with white linen curtains at the windows along with black out blinds. All bedrooms contain both a quality hairdryer and ample coat hangers along with a selection of antiques and paintings for your enjoyment.
The first (middle) bedroom has a comfortable original English large wrought iron bed (180cm) with the most amazing mattress from England, antique wardrobe and chest of drawers, bedside tables and lamps. Original exposed painted beams, wall mounted television, freestanding wood burning fireplace and pretty views out to the mid terrace. Flexible enough to be a cosy snug in the winter months or a cool respite in the Summer.
The second bedroom (at the front of the house) has a brand new bed and mattress (160cm), antique French bedside tables and lamps, large antique chest of drawers with marble top above which hangs a large antique wall mounted mantel mirror. There is also a huge built-in wardrobe so no need to be concerned about wardrobe space. High ceilings with exposed painted beams give this room a light and airy feel. All of this and....a pretty view of the exposed stone wall opposite from the french doors which open onto the Juliette Balcony.
The third bedroom again has a brand new bed and mattress (160cm), antique bedside table, antique mirrored wardrobe and various antique wall mounted mantel mirrors. This bedroom makes the most of the Mediterranean light with French doors leading out to the mid terrace and the roof terrace is accessed via this bedroom. An original vaulted ceiling adds the finishing touch. This bedroom is flexible enough for two separate couples to stay independently at the house which I can give you more details about.
The main bathroom is on this floor and has a nautical theme combined with Lefroy Brooks fixtures and fittings sourced from England along with Spanish verde marble. There is a full size cast iron bath for a relaxing soak with a rain head shower over (for a proper shower), WC and a large wash basin. Electric plug sockets are conviently located for shavers and hairdryers along with proper lighting. Again there are beautiful French and English antiques which include a large ornate French wall mirror (above wash basin) mirrored wardrobe and a French park bench. Original terracotta floor throughout. Two new VELUX roof lights have been installed making this a bright Mediterranean bathroom.
Back on the ground floor, you enter the house into a large combined Living / Dinning room with a varied eclectic selection of sofas and chairs. There is a large teak dinning table which comfortably seats 8, brand new 51" Samsung Smart TV all under the original vaulted ceiling with terracotta tiles on the floor throughout and a freestanding wood buning stove for those cosy winter nights.
Off this room to the right and down a few steps leads you to the lower floor Games / Living room which contains a comfortable sofa set, games table, full stereo system with a huge selection of CDs of all genres, darts board and a various selection of children's games. You will also find the house's original rain water well. An integrated wood burning fireplace is a real focal point in this room along with various paintings and taxidermy which completes the look.
A couple of steps up from the living room in the other direction is the Kitchen which is a real chefs delight with quality appliances such as: SMEG 1.5 freestanding oven with gas hob, Siemens dishwasher, American fridge / freezer and all the utensils needed for fabulous al fresco meals and parties whilst on your holiday. Of course there is a coffee maker, juicer, toaster, kettle, and a large selection of quality utensils, plates and glassware all of which provide guests with all they will need for long or short stays.
Off the kitchen is another luxury bathroom done out in verde Spanish marble both on the floor and walls. Again the fixture and fittings are all Lefroy Brooks from England to include: a mirrored walk-in rain shower, WC and large wash basin. Electric sockets are once again conveniently located. You will also find both a BOSCH washing machine and separate BOSCH clothes dryer, both of which have "rapid" cycle settings which are at your disposal during your stay.
Outside there are three separate terraces: the ground floor terrace contains a large teak dining table (seats 8) and chairs, and a large gas BBQ. On the mid terrace you will find two new sun-loungers along with a charming bistro table and chairs. Onto the roof terrace there is a beautiful French wrought iron chill out day bed along with another two new sun-loungers so that you can make the most not only of the fabulous views of the Church but also the view all the way down the entire valley to the Port of Andratx not to mention making the most of the amazing summer sunsets that you have from this high up terrace.
As it is a pedestrianised street it is very quiet yet you are so conviently located for everything the village of Andratx has to offer. You are a two minute walk away from charming Bar Cubano, the Tobaconist shop, the beautiful Church and only a five minute walk from the main Square with its plethora of bars and restaurants.
