Eco-friendly hilltop living near Port d’Andratx

Stunning setting combines with luxury features and environmental credentials

The first of many striking features of this high-end villa is its setting – prominently perched on a hillside overlooking Cala Llamp near Port d’Andratx. And the design takes full advantage of its privileged position, with numerous floor-to-ceiling windows providing vantage points that present full 270-degree views of its stunning surrounds.

While the architecture is unmistakeably 21st-century, the build (by construction firm Edificam Illes) has employed a range of traditional and regional materials including Balearic marès sandstone, olive wood fittings, and natural grey stone walls. Combined with lamella-style shutters and ikat-print fabrics, the result is an elegant marriage of timeless elements with smart contemporary design.

But what really stands this villa out from the crowd is its impeccably eco-friendly credentials. The property is supplied exclusively with renewable energy and can even be operated independently from the grid by storing electrical power. Add to this super energy efficiency and an emphasis on sustainability, and you have one of the most green – if not the greenest – luxury villas on the market.

The technological features of the property are also state-of-the-art, with easy-to-operate smart panels allowing touchscreen control of the villas lighting, heating, and security systems. Functionality for remote monitoring via a smart phone app is even available, as well as alert notifications.

The plot covers a generous 1,325 square metres and the building is spread over three floors; ground level features a garden with a raised swimming pool while a decked rooftop terrace provides panoramic vistas over the picturesque surrounding hilltops and Cala Llamp bay. The villa’s location and bearing also makes for enjoying some wonderful sunsets. The property also comprises a total of five bedrooms, gym/sauna, office space, and enough parking for six vehicles (four inside and two out), plus house guests can have use of a separate apartment.
