Casa Corazon is a superb family home set into the hills of Son Gual, a municipality of Palma de Mallorca. Built on a plot size of 7.500,00m2 there are panoramic views of the Bay of Palma and the mountains of the Serra de Tramuntana.
Created by architects Angel Duro Lopez, Cristina Duro and built by CSV, this freestanding family home with swimming pool is a masterpiece of design and craftsmanship featuring under floor heating, exquisite lighting, Jacuzzi, built-in Bose surround sound system throughout, air conditioning with climate control, modern fireplace, and 123.08m2 of outside terraces which span the whole length of the property providing vistas from every room.
The home has two floors connected by an interior staircase, as well as an underground level that includes a large garage and utilities space. It is surrounded by beautiful Mediterranean landscaped gardens displaying colourful hibiscus, natural palms and rockeries, sumptuous grass and a mixture of shrubs indigenous to Mallorca.
On entering the property by the main door you are immediately greeted by a wall of glass, treating you to a spectacular view of the pool and decking area outside, with vistas of Palma beyond. Also embedded in its special place is a most beautiful little olive tree.
The open plan of the ground floor creates a sense of space, light and air. White walls and light flooring made of gres porcelain floor tile reflect a South West natural light, which is clearly to Casa Corazon’s benefit.
From the main entrance hall and to the right you have immediate access to the spacious living room which exudes modern elegance. With feature fireplace, sleek leather sofas, twisted wood sculptures, and an entertainment system with storage facility, this room also opens out to the pool area and terraces via sliding windows and you can enjoy the view whether inside or out.
If you take a left on entering the property, you will be led into the sleek and stylish dining area. Centre stage is a majestic dining table and set of ten chairs complete with suspended lighting which all looks especially inviting. Countless storage facilities are cleverly integrated into the white walls. Sliding glass doors open out onto a covered part of the terrace with solid timber beams and supported by attractive looking “Santanyi” stone pillars.
Within easy reach of the dining area, the tastefully designed ground floor bathroom offers an en-suite and shower facilities. It also benefits from having access from the exterior.
Living is easy in this impressive property and the kitchen is almost part of the dining room separated by a stylish island and high seating. Clad with premium finishes and kitted out with Bosch and Siemens appliances it can as easily cater for a family as entertain a crowd.
Opening up the living areas on the ground floor to the outside covered and uncovered terraces, pool area and landscaped gardens, you are provided with the perfect setting for relaxation and entertaining. The alfresco part of the house is ideally positioned to enjoy summers by the pool looking out over Palma de Mallorca by day and, to relax and marvel under a blanket of night sky and bright stars with views of the twinkling city lights in the distance.
There is an exterior bathroom with WC and shower facility conveniently located near to the main pool area and terraces with access also from the kitchen/dining room.
Moving out of the dining area back towards the main corridor in the house you might want to open the wooden sliding doors to your right as they reveal a state of the art office which is move-in ready.
Obvious thought has been put into the design of the laundry/utility room, which is fully equipped with Bosch appliances, hidden storage solutions, work top area, sink unit, and a generous amount of floor space. This room is conveniently located on ground level.
Also located on the ground floor is a kids “snug” come fifth bedroom with entertainment system, ample storage and a window at the far wall with unique, inspiring views over to the Tramuntana mountain range.
An awe-inspiring “shower of light” is the centre piece of the open split level staircase.
The staircase is lined on the right hand side with a sheer glass panel and chrome edging and this links the ground floor to the lower level and the first floor. Suspended from the ceiling this amazing lighting fixture cascades down the central core of the staircase dripping with chrome tubes and trails of crystals.
The first floor contains four bedrooms, each with its own en-suite bathroom.
All bedrooms present with solid timber beams on the ceilings and all walls are painted white. Floors are heated and made of gres porcelain floor tiles. Steamed beech interior cabinets with folding flush doors provide ample mixed use storage space. There are stunning feature walls, chic recessed lighting, small balconies overlooking the pool and terraces. All doors to balconies are made of glass set into Iroco Teak wooden frames and protected by Mallorca shutters also made from Iroco Teak.
The master bedroom (1) suite, situated in the right wing of the house, presents an opulent en-suite bathroom with freestanding oval shaped tub with a separate glass shower. This room provides access to a private balcony with Jacuzzi. A fabulous way to relax and unwind after a hard day.
Master bedroom (2) suite, situated in the left wing of the house, presents a fabulous layout with all the right spaces. A walk in dressing area with strategically placed large full length mirror auto-reflects the outside view of the Tramuntana mountain range from the window in double, which is a really unique and inspired feature.
There are two twin bedrooms tastefully decorated with generous storage solutions fit for a family home. Both rooms have views out over the pool/back terrace and Palma de Mallorca.
The corridor connecting the first floor rooms is filled with natural light and indulges one to yet more mountain, skyline and sea vistas. This new build has been impeccably designed to show-case every viewpoint from the house. Full length sliding doors open out onto a balcony overlooking the pool area and beyond and on the other side of the corridor there is a double panelled glass timber framed door with feature balcony looking out over the entrance to the house and beautiful garden.
Wall mounted lights along the corridor provide instant glamour which are incredibly smaller versions of the huge cascading light feature in the stairwell. The off white stone effect floors and bright white walls run uniformly throughout the house.
The exterior of the house itself mixture of render and stone and it is waterproofed, heat and acoustically insulated. The property is framed by the landscaped gardens and access path which follows the natural undulating slope of the land from the gates down to the entrance. The street outside is a wide paved road with public street lighting.
With the views and surrounding area you would be forgiven for thinking that you are a world away from everything, but, the schools, shopping and amenities that the area and Palma has to offer are quite simply an easy drive away.
The neighbourhood is upmarket with many of Spain’s wealthy families situated in the vicinity. For Golf enthusiasts the Son Gual 18-hole Golf Club is nearby. Access to the MI5 is nearby which is the main road that leads directly into Palma and various other routes.
Two houses, still under construction, are available for purchase. Style from a blank canvas, add a jacuzzi to your main suite for relaxing evenings outside in the warm night air, or buy turn key and move in straight away to enjoy and appreciate the same, or similar finishes, products, and facilities in place as the show home.
