Step back in time and enter Mon Cor, a four-story townhome located off the northwest coast of Mallorca in the town of Sóller. Known as a paradise for hikers, cyclists, and foodies, Sóller is the ideal spot to plant some roots on this island rich in culture, citrus trees, and history.
Mon Cor dates back to 1903, as the 4,000-sq. ft. property was an architectural marvel then, and still is today. The townhome features four bedrooms, five bathrooms, a picturesque courtyard, private garage, saltwater pool, and much more. All of this can be found within five minutes of Sóller’s port, and less than a half hour from the island’s capital city of Palma, the so-called “pearl of the Mediterranean” which attracts millions of international visitors each year.
Mallorca-based design group Berrow Projects gave the home a reimagined, contemporary update to fit a year-round lifestyle, while preserving the heritage of this Spanish island. Modern updates include a temperature-controlled wine cellar, charging station for electric vehicles, Miele appliances, and central air for when the Spanish summer gets too hot.
But the firm made sure to keep this historic home’s charm intact, by restoring its staircases, floors, doors, and windows.
Speaking of windows, the views here are unmatched. Bring a bottle of wine from the cellar to the rooftop terrace where guests can sit and stare out into the UNESCO world heritage mountain range. Or find a place in the shade (or sun) in the intimate courtyard where citrus trees bloom and palm trees sway.
The private outdoor oasis boasts more than 1,500 sq. ft., with plenty of space for sunbathers to spread out while swimmers get in some laps. It’s the perfect spot to enjoy tapas from the open-concept kitchen.
After spending a day in this Mediterranean marvel, a siesta will surely be on the to-do list. Although, it may be hard to sleep given the constant temptation to behold every detail of this $3.6 million Mediterranean masterpiece.
