Rare opportunity to acquire an outstanding 8 bedroom villa nestling in over
112 acres of glorious land with gardens and pool, enjoying far reaching countryside views to the sea beyond from its peaceful location near Ciutadella.
The ground floor of the main building was originally used by the military to store arms, towards the end of the Habsburgs dynasty in Spain. The keystone of the vaulted ceiling shows the coat of arms with its two-headed eagle, and with its thick walls the central nave is an ideal place to sit in the cool during the height of summer.
During the middle of the 19th Century, Archduke Luis Salvador of Austria refers to this outstanding building in his memoirs "Die Balearen". It stands proudly on an immense expanse of productive land, more than 40 hectares of pasture, and has its own well, mains electricity supply and various agricultural buildings.
The ground floor has almost been completely renovated, displaying the traditional four-point and barrel vaulted limestone ceilings. The first floor and mezzanines, are yet to be refurbished, and have spectacular views out the sea, as far as Mallorca on a clear day.
Various outbuildings, a working bread oven and a large cellar and within the grounds with sunbathing terraces and trees providing shade in the summer and areas to relax and enjoy throughout the year.
There is a spacious lock up for storage or other uses.
Ciutadella is a city of palaces and the nobility, of old streets full of life and perfumed by Italian refinement. Poets say that it is a jewel of stone that in its day was the capital of Menorca but which maintains its commercial prestige because it possesses the cathedral and its stately façades. The Sant Joan festivals in June turn the town wild and fill it with joy, with horses that trot with agility through its narrow streets. Its cosy harbour dances in the summer nights to the rhythm of the boats and restaurants, and is really exceptionally beautiful.
