Mon Cor, my heart in sunny Sóller

Renovated modernist townhouse by Berrow Projects

Project by Berrow Projects

The best Mallorca renovations are imbued with a profound sense of history coexisting with modern life. The etched glass entrance and simply lovely original staircase of Mon Cor vividly evokes its refined past. Fuse such intriguing architectural elements with a luxurious contemporary aesthetic, and a very distinct ambience settles in.

“These two features combine so perfectly and sit in exactly the same position as they were 120 years ago when the house was built,” remarks Monty Berrow of Berrow Projects in Sóller.

Family Endeavour

It’s easy to discern the love the family team holds for the area. The modernist townhouse is the latest chapter in their reform mission, taking old, dilapidated buildings and turning them into graceful, comfortable homes while retaining their character and heritage.

With 385 square-metres of constructed space encompassing four bedrooms and five bathrooms; gracious living areas, a wine cellar and private garage, the Berrow team have more than delivered. The elegant 1903 house built on the legacy of the most prosperous period in Sóller’s past has been reimagined for 21st century lifestyles.

A Lasting Marriage

Everything, from the private top-floor studio with mountain views to the charming original tile floors – “the biggest challenge” – and wooden beams, doors and windows, has been executed with deep thought and consideration.

Even the oval shape of the saltwater pool, heated for year-round comfort, is designed to allude to the property’s main door with its original burgundy transom glass. When all is done and polished, there’s something satisfyingly fitting about combining ornate details with the ultimate in sunny Mallorca living.

A five-minute bike ride from Sóller’s port, hidden behind an unassuming courtyard entrance, Mon Cor’s residents luxuriate in the peace of a south-facing garden complete with plentiful sunbathing and al fresco dining areas. And what, over a century on from Sóller’s golden age, could be more splendid than that?
