A timeless elegance of a traditional Mallorcan House in Santanyí
Without a doubt, Santanyí is one of the most picturesque villages in Mallorca, known mainly for its characteristic marés sandstone, which is a classic feature of the island's buildings.
This charming village boasts an excellent location close to fabulous beaches with crystal clear waters, some of the most beautiful in the southeast of Mallorca.
The sea and nature surrounding Santanyí are the main sources of inspiration for the interior design project for Cap Ventós, the work of architect Nacho Pons, developed by Mallorca Heritage.
From the outset, the goal was to preserve the Mallorcan identity in this house through a contemporary interior design that is both warm and welcoming.
To achieve this, meticulous attention has been paid to each and every detail, from the choice of natural materials such as pale Santanyí stone, aged natural oak wood for interiors and teak outdoors, warm lighting, soft and pleasant fabrics to a carefully selected color palette based on sandy linen tones with accents of green and blue.
The main entrance exudes an atmosphere of harmonious tranquility that can be felt in every room of the house, in which the traditional architecture of Mallorca embodies a rustic yet elegant essence. On the ground floor there is a living room, dining room, main kitchen, as well as a wine cellar and an outdoor living room with garden and pool.
In the living room, everything revolves around a splendid fireplace, creating an intimate and warm setting that is perfect for winter evenings. The primary colors are beige and sandy tones, with decorative cushions adding green pops for a soothing sense of harmony and serenity. Sophisticated furniture selection adds a touch of modern elegance, creating an attractive contrast to the rustic architectural features of this home.
The Poliform kitchen and dining area are designed as an open space to create a laid-back feel. It is an incredible combination of tradition and sophistication, where local natural materials and reflected light are thoughtfully placed. A kitchen island, with high bar stools and focal lighting, together with a wine cellar decorated with Santanyi stone create a space of character that is perfect for a wine and snack conversation with family or friends.
A Janua smoked oak raw-effect table, elegant linen upholstered chairs and exceptional natural lamps dominate the dining room, further enhancing the effect of carefully selected and balanced contrasts that blend perfectly with the fabulous scenery.
Moving to the first floor, the unique 50 sqm Master bedroom is a single space that reflects classic elegance and sheer perfection, while retaining the character of a traditional Mallorcan house with striking high ceilings and visible beams. A true haven of peace and quiet overlooking the village church tower and garden.
A sophisticated king-size bed in soft neutral tones along with bedside tables buried in soft carpet, harmonious blend of natural materials and high-quality finishes, coupled with romantic lighting speak of the traditional and slow life of the Mediterranean countryside.
Particularly noteworthy is the central module, suspended above the stone block, which houses a gas fireplace and a built-in TV. The oak-sheathed dressing room is a sophisticated space, enhanced by an additional stone bench, a functional island and a vanity area with a rear mirror that adds a sense of depth to this room.
The bathroom area, finished in Travertine stone with iron and glass doors, is separated from the main part . It features unique finishes and features such as a mirror that reflects magnificent views from the two large bedroom windows.
Returning to the main floor, it is in this area that the hallmark of Terraza Balear, the fusion of interior and exterior, reaches its maximum splendor through the use of the same materials and color palettes. The garden of over 200 square meters, which overlooks the magnificent olive tree from the entrance, reflects the notion of simple island life, creating an atmosphere of peace and comfort.
This is a delightful place, inspired by the beauty of the surrounding nature and the turquoise waters of the nearby coastline. It is composed of the traditional elements of a Mediterranean garden, where outdoor life takes on a whole new meaning and water is a particularly important feature.The classic soothing sound of flowing water is carried into the garden by the Santanyi stone fountain and the waterfall in the pool.
Relaxing in the living room is easy with a custom-made sofa decorated by Jose Montero, complemented by an exquisite Dedon Mbrace lounge chair and Tribù Hexagon teak coffee tables with blue lava stone countertops.
The cooling shade locals seek on hot summer days can be found under an iron pergola, designed to cast enchanting patterns of light throughout the day and be a perfect spot for soothing stargazing after dark.
The delights of Mediterranean living can be seen and felt in the outdoor dining area. This exceptional space features a comfortable table, Dedon chairs and a lamp, making it the perfect spot for relaxing and lingering over a meal with friends.
