- Son Vida , Spain
Designed to take fullest advantage of its stunning location,with an almost seamless flow of indoor and outdoor living, this stunning property is in a league of its own.
It’s situated on a South facing slope in the green/lavish Son Vida area of Palma de Mallorca. The impressive 1260m2 of living space is spread out over cleverly designed rooms boasting generous views of the surrounding hills, Palma town, the harbour and naturally, the Mediterranean Sea. The property offers generous space for comfortable living with 2 living rooms, a family kitchen, 5 bedrooms ensuite a spa and gym area and both an indoor and outdoor pool. It was designed by renowned Architect Osvaldo Luppi who made sure that natural light, views and nature play the lead in this impressive home. Terraza Balear was responsible for the interior furnishing design and styling, who chose to use soft furnishing and understated tones to respect and honour the architecture.
The entrance is in the center of the house. Upon entering the home, an underwater glimpse of the outdoor pool immediately tells the story of luxury living and introduces natural light. A small seating area with two elegant Minotti chairs and Tribu side table makes guests immediately feel welcome. The impressive Osvaldo Luppi designed staircase plays a fundamental role in the flow of home, connecting the various floors and spaces.
Walking through, the spacious living room overlooks the generous terrace with its inviting outdoor pool. The entire facade can be opened up to allow outdoor and indoor to become one. The design is an understated palette of Terrazza Balear signature tones, inspired by the Mediterranean sand, stone and wood found in the area. Subtle and carefully curated use of colour provides the perfect base for the large Minotti sofa and accompanying set of Minotti club chairs and living room tables. Wood-clad pillars provide a striking focal point and separate the living room from the dining room. Here, a Poliform dining table joined by eight chairs of the same brand, provide the perfect space for engaging dinner parties.
The massive marble and wood island in the impressive kitchen doubles as a bar with two Meridiani poufs. They welcome guests or family members to join for a drink while meals are prepared. Above the island, copper Tom Dixon pendant lamps in different sizes are a subtle wink to copper pots and pans often found hanging above a chef’s workplace.
For rainy days or general downtime, the spa area boasts an indoor pool and several inviting spots to sit or lie down and enjoy a good book, a cup of tea or just time admiring the gorgeous views. Two oversized rope woven Paola Lenti chairs on the covered patio area, give the space a luxurious vibe accompanied by an outdoor jacuzzi, further enhanced by the lounge chairs along with the pool.
The master bedroom is a sanctuary of calm with a large Limited Edition rug functioning as a stage for the comfortable King-sized Minotti bed. Throw pillows and a cosy throw in soft blues and greys add just enough colour to bring the room to life. Furthermore, they have a color connection with the views outside. Also here, outdoor is welcomed in by sliding glass doors to open up a full wall. The view continues in the impressive master bathroom where they can be admired from the large tub and even the glass paned walk in shower.
Four further bedrooms, each with its own bathroom ensuite and all decorated with the highest level of comfort in mind, complete the sleeping area.
Outside, the living space continues with several terraces. Each enclosed with glass banisters to ensure unobstructed views. To match the sea below, accents in a variety of blues were introduced here. A large rope woven Paola Lenti ottoman in a striking teal sits between the same Paola Lenti chairs as in the spa area. They play an important role in all outside spaces and are easy to move around if need be. On the main terrace, a sectional B&B Italia lounge sofa in a lighter blue, almost seems to be dipped in the pool next to it, further complementing the well-balanced design of the property. A large dining table with matching chairs, also by B&B Italia, make the terrace the perfect setting for al fresco dining or sunny breakfasts.
This property is designed with the wonderful benefits of the Balearic climate and scenery in mind. The neutral tones, use of rich, comfortable but unimposing materials and clever flow of indoor and outdoor living
Mediterranean life at its finest.
