A contemporary finca in Alaró

An artful home for a buyer looking in the centre of the island

Anything. Everything. So says the writing on two pictures in the luminous study of this modernist home, nicely summing up its sense of breadth and beauty. Light and style wash through 656 squared metres of space, the result is spectacular. The purchase of the property was coordinated by Morgan & Morgan.

The majestic twin peaks of the Alaró mountains provide the backdrop to a magnificent cubist villa set in landscaped grounds, with an elegant pool area. Grandiosity, however, its owners and their chosen experts did not want; instead going for a wonderfully light-hearted ambience, with industrial and ethnic elements.

Calm, characterful and entirely conducive to the much sought-after, rare commodity that is head space, this is the perfect home for creative types and business folk alike. Spread throughout lie cosy, inviting seating arrangements designed for contemplative lounging, or stimulating interaction with family, friends and guests. Even the bathroom is a place created for dreaming. One of Es Raiguer’s most desirable residences is a place made by great ideas, where great ideas are made.
