Set on approx. 25.000m2 that guarantee privacy and tranquility, the historic finca is surrounded by lovely wooded hills and the breath-taking countryside typical of the north of the island. On the grounds of the finca are two vineyards that grow Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay grapes, they can produce a capacity of approx. 1000 bottles of wine per year. The idyllic environment is perfect for those who adore the peaceful country lifestyle, whilst also appreciating that this charming country home is only 6 kms away from the beautiful Bay of Pollenca and has easy access to the historic Roman towns Pollensa and Alcúdia.
The property is accessed by a stunning automatic gate, which artistically features the delightful bird the finca has been named after. A long driveway leads to the 300 year old farmhouse and former barn. They have been lovingly restored with great attention to traditional details and elements that have been carefully maintained, adding to the unique appeal of this delightful home. The finca has been designed for year round comfort with modern amenities and yet every room retains its original character. Wooden beams in the room ceilings and natural stone interior walls provide for a cosy atmosphere, the log fire and oil-fired central heating throughout ensure that the house is perfect for all-year living and in addition to the heating facilities, all bedrooms enjoy the benefit of reversible air conditioning.
The cosy interior surprises with a clever concept, that is perfect for when families or friends visit. To one side of the entrance hallway is the lovely living room, the magnificent, full height converted barn, from here a staircase and gallery lead upstairs to the master bedroom suite with its private balcony overlooking the valley and access to the garden and pool.
A second en-suite bedroom is downstairs next to the living room. Back into the hallway and on to the other side past the guest toilette is a small room with single bed, currently a study, the dining area and the charming farmhouse-style kitchen which is perfectly equipped including a cute breakfast bar, a full-size wine cooler and large fridge/freezer. Here in this part of the house both bedrooms are upstairs, one with en-suite bathroom and there is another separate bathroom to accommodate the second bedroom. Both bedrooms enjoy beautiful views over the garden and countryside. Downstairs, each room has individual access to the garden, terraces and the pool. Complementing the interior is the fantastic veranda-style terrace which reminds of a open conservatory. Here life definitely takes place during the warmer months, it has a lounge and a dining area that connects to a charming, fully equipped summer kitchen, of course the garden and paths to the pool are also accessed from here.
The gorgeous garden has a definite Mediterranean flair and has been nurtured over the years by the present owners who also planted and developed the 2 areas for growing vines. There are vine covered terraces on either side of the house so one can enjoy or escape the sun depending on the season. To the right of the main entrance is a small terrace area with the original Mallorcan stone oven and a sweet alcove with stone bench seating. Little paths lead to the mosaic-tiled pool complete with rock diving stone and which is heated by means of solar panels, the deepest part has a depth of 2,5m, ideal for diving in! There is furthermore a waterfall, pool shower and a delightful thatched gazebo. Close-by the pool is the spacious BBQ terrace with summer kitchen and dining area, the perfect setting to enjoying meals under the stars. The outdoor Jacuzzi is on one side of this BBQ area, a relaxing lounge on the other where a chess game with big stone figures has been designed onto the terrace.
There is a practical laundry room which is accessed from outside. The property has ample water thanks to two reliable wells, one of which is drilled to 110 metres depth; the property also has a 3 phase electricty installation, a security system with camera at the entrance gate; the solar panels are discreetly placed in a corner of the garden, they also provide for hot water in the house. A small casita in the garden serves as the workshop, here the wine is produced.
