A unique traditional townhouse in the mountain village of Fornalutx. Lots of entertaining space, self-contained guest apartment, lovely garden with pool and stunning mountain views.

Overview: Fornalutx is recognised to be one of the most picturesque villages in Spain. It is in an easily accessible part of the Soller Valley in the Tramuntana Mountains on Mallorca’s Northwest Coast. The village is within walking distance of Soller and a short drive from Puerto Soller. Access to Palma and other parts of the island is also easy via a tunnel through the mountains.

This is a stunning location combining the tranquility and dramatic scenery of the mountains with a good selection of local restaurants and plenty to do in the area. Consequently it is home to a mixture of permanent and semi-permanent residents as well as being a popular mountainside getaway for holiday makers who appreciate the more scenic and authentic side of Mallorca.

The property for sale is one of the most outstanding townhouses currently on the market. Situated just a minute’s walk or so from the village square in a street of elegant old houses, the back of the property and garden has spectacular mountain views.

The house was originally renovated in 1910 in the French art nouveau style which many wealthy Mallorquins adopted at the time. The current owner has restored and upgraded the house with new plumbing, bathrooms, kitchens, electricity and low voltage radiators. The works have retained features such as the moulded ceilings, old wooden doors and windows, many original tiled floors and the wonderful staircase.
