ABC MALLORCA.- Property Feature.- The rugged cliffs that characterise the scenic eastern coast of Canyamel are some of the most dramatically picturesque on the island, and the stunning luxury villa of Las Gaviotas has taken a prime position amongst them. Its multiple levels cascade dramatically down the steep rock formations, crisp clean-lines and glass-fronted facades popping against the surrounding pine forests and tall natural stone walls rising up citadel like.
When we began the project back in 2016, early excavation revealed an old structure in a precarious condition, requiring complicated consolidation and reinforcement before construction. The project took us over two years.
And more than worth the wait, the results speaks for themselves. Centre stage is naturally the stunning sea-view panoramas, which can be enjoyed from most of the rooms around the property. On a clear day you can even make out the island of Menorca on the horizon. Interiors are led by an aesthetic of understated elegance, with light- filled spaces nished in simple yet stylish contemporary design. Flooring alternates between warm wood and natural ‘Caliza Luna’ limestone, which also extends to counter tops and bathrooms. Entrance to the six-level property is via the top floor, with ample parking and a flat roof. The first level down through oak doors is the entrance hall, leading to kitchen, living and dining rooms, and one of the villa’s four bedrooms. The master suite is the next floor, together with a guest apartment, while the recreation level with fitness room, leisure area with Moroccan bed, and sauna – is another floor down. The two lowest levels are terraces, one with an adjustable pergola and the other a salt-water infinity swimming pool with poolside bar. Special attention was also paid to sustainability, installing one of the most eficient air conditioning and under floor heating systems on the market, together with LED technology, and top-quality wall and roof insulation. State-of-the art home automatiza technology completes an impressive package.
