This gem of a property is called 'Ca Sa Mare' and is situated in the very centre of Santanyi, only a few minutes walk from the market square. It was completely renovated in 2013 and became a 'passive house', although great care was taken to preserve the original elements and the unique character of a traditional village-house, whilst creating the highest level of comfort and energy efficiency.
A unique architectural jewel was the result!
Distributed over the ground floor is a generous entrance area, from where a traditional arch leads into the bright, pleasant living area with heating oven. Adjacent is the spacious kitchen with dining area and a further, open room which currently serves as a games room. From the kitchen is direct access to the terrace, the ideal place for breakfast. On this level is also a bathroom and a single bedroom.
Stairs lead to the upper level with 3 spacious bedrooms and a bathroom, and it would also be possible to add a further bathroom if required.
The central point of the house is the large inner patio, where diverse terraces invite to relax. Steps lead down to the pool, and lawns with a lemon tree underline the true Mediterranean atmosphere.
A further highlight is the separate guest room in the patio, where guests can live independently with direct access to the garden. Next to this is a further room which has not yet been developed but offers the possibility to be easily turned into a further studio.
In this property there is definitely ample space for the whole family!
During renovation great importance was placed upon thermal insulation using ecological materials, which were fitted internally to preserve the original stone facades.
The passive-house system is based upon the use of natural energy and heat sources, without the use of electrical equipment such as air conditioning and heaters. It assures a pleasant room climate while obstructing the feeling of dampness.
In spite of this there is a heating-oven in the living room compatible with the passive system and which, thanks to the passive ventilation system, distributes the warmth throughout the house and compliments the system in winter.
This exceptional village-house has been awarded the energy class 'A', seldom awarded in Mallorca, emphasising its energy-saving capabilities.
