PROPERTY OF THE MONTH
Townhouse in Palma #12232
Can Amorós, an outstanding refurbished two storey penthouse with 4 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and roof terrace in an exclusive location, overlooking the town of Palma.
This luxurious project matches the building's history, architecture and personality. Two amazing duplexes with private terrace, in which every detail has been designed with exquisite taste and maximum care for details and materials. Putting down roots here is very easy, the converted 275 square metres are laid out over two floors, storage room and a 55-metre terrace into the home of your dreams. A special feature reserved to very few, the experience and enjoyment of Palma from its terraces and roof tops.
Find yourself captivated by the serene exclusivity that goes beyond the quality of the materials used, its careful layout or high-end equipment. Luxury is being able to enjoy the harmony of its rooms, made possible by focussing on both the smallest of details and the big ones. Everything is big, from the spacious bedrooms to the ample lounge, each of the bathrooms and the vast fitted kitchen. The living room also joins with the terrace, creating another room. The colours and materials chosen, following an elegant timeless design, give Can Amorós a welcoming and functional ambience.
The entrance patio to Can Amorós is one of the most elegant and beautiful in the old quarter, it sends us a message that this is a building with roots. This is just the first of its many charms. Its elegance, which is typical of Mallorcan mansions, with its arches, pilasters and columns of red marble, dates back to the eighteenth century when it was built.
It is a privileged neighbourhood, next to a beautiful Gothic church, at the heart of the historic city centre, brimming with charm and life. It invites you to wander its winding streets that contain hidden treasures revealing its history, lose yourself among its cobbled streets, dotted with mansions and magnificent townhouses. Among small grocers and old bookshops, most exclusive hotels, restaurants and shops that are located in the Santa Eulàlia area. Tranquillity and quality of life are what characterise Palma’s old quarter. The entire neighbourhood is closed to traffic with access only for residents’ vehicles.
Just minutes walking to the cathedral and the marina, where an illuminated walking and cycling path accopanies you along the of whole bay of Palma. Enjoy an active lifestyle or picnic with relaxing sunsets seen from the old city walls.
The building’s historic value, its privileged location and the quality of life that Palma offers make Can Amorós the perfect place to live.
