The stunning country estate, for sale in Estellencs, holds a privileged, elevated position within the Serra de Tramuntana. It is on an enormous plot of over 3.1 hectares, overlooking the sea, it offers total privacy, breathtaking sunsets, and is the perfect rustic retreat, just 10 minutes away from the town.
One of two principal properties within the municipality, this mansion is a major landmark, and with its extensive grounds bordering three municipalities, ensures absolute exclusivity.
The entire estate is vast in size and surrounded by olive, pine, carob, and holm oak trees as well as orchards bearing a variety of fruit. The built area is also great, with more than 1.500m2, divided into a ground floor, first floor, second floor, third floor and basement level.
The many rooms including living rooms, dining rooms, kitchens and bedrooms have changed little, and remain in their original positions.
Outside, the main house has a traditional courtyard, a defence tower and a wealth of character including the coat of arms which is still proudly displayed of the property´s facade.
A curious fact about the property is that after the island´s conquest, the owner was required at the behest of the king, to employ 2 knights on horseback to alert the towns people of any danger that may approach from the coast. The royal road from Estellencs to Puigpunyent even lies close to the property.
Although in need of total renovation, its rich history, character, and olive oil production capabilities offer a great opportunity and is an amazing creative project.
Located in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Serra de Tramuntana mountains, the cosy village of Estellencs offers an authentic taste of traditional Mallorca life. Estellencs is not a busy place to be, with just over 300 residents and only a handful of cafés and restaurants, plus one small shop. But if you love sea and mountain, don't let the lack of sites deter you from visiting. The gentle rhythm is key to the villages allure.
