Beautyful Villa, With 4 En Suite Bedrooms And Its Own Pool, Surounded By Nature

Magical, stunning and an assault on the senses are all phrases that begin to capture this most relaxed and exclusive of houses and its beautiful country setting. Alchemy has been described as "One of the most stylish homes to have been built in Mallorca in the last 20 years" and from the moment you drive through its electric gates ,guests soon realise they are leaving the real world behind,in favour of a peaceful utopia of calm and tranquility .

This luxurious and unique contemporary take on the traditional Finca, is the embodiment of chic design,drawing influences from both the Moors and far Eastern philosophies, spread over 450 sq m., within the impressive 22,000 sq m plot.

Featured in numerous magazines and used as a location for filming,it's truly spectacular setting offers a zen like feel to all lucky enough to enjoy its charms.

The surrounding landscape is both beautiful and peaceful and often no sound is to be heard, save for the melodic clanking of the local goats bells.. Yet it is only 10 minutes from them the many perfect beaches of NE Mallorca.

The house enjoys total privacy in an area of outstanding natural beauty,and with the picturesque village of Sant Llorenc des Cardassar only 3k away, guests will be able enjoy numerous restaurants ,featuring a range of cuisine from the fine dining to the rustic - and with a Michelin starred establishment in near-by Sa Coma.

The area is perfect for relaxing, walking and exploring the unspoiled scenary that only Mallorca has to offer.

Alchemy was only recently completed and is the work of the owner and award wining Mallorquin architect Andrau Bennassar . Together , they have succeeded in creating an exquisite architectural masterpiece, using materials of an impeccably high standard.

From the moment guests walk in through the huge wooden pivot door, they are greeted by billowing white drapes that cover the enormous sliding windows, which glide into the walls, to create a sumptuous feeling of space ,calm and tranquilly.Kick off your shoes and let the cool porcelain tiles start to help you to get in touch with your senses. Put some cool sounds on the B&O hi-fi,let the first ice cub begin to melt in your welcoming drink and begin to congratulate yourself on your exceptionally wise choice of holiday accommodation. This is going to be a stay you'll remember for a very long time.

Through out the house,the owners world class art collection - often of nudes - by celebrated photographers such as Helmet Newton ,further help to stamp Alchemy as a magical incarnation.

The main salon has a shimmering open flame gas fire, as well as furnishings by B&B Italia and deign classics like the Barcelona day bed. It's large sliding glass panels open onto the pool (14x4) and the many terraces,with different raised and sunken sun bathing areas. Adjacent to the pool is the striking geometric garden of oranges and lemons, which make for a lovely evenings stroll , as the oleander and rosemary scented hedges begin their assault on your senses.

The front of the house features clipped cloud olive trees, as well as imposing Cypress trees and bourganvillia , beyond which is the tree lined drive which is straddled by the vineyard that guests drive through from the electric gates.

The kitchen was designed by Boffi and has a host of top appliances , which include waste disposal, wine chiller and Quooker boiling tap, as well as all the usual other fittings.

Each of the generous bedrooms has their own designer bathroom en-suite , with appliances by Duravit and again striking art work from Helmet Newton in each, so that there is no argument as to who has which.

Each has floor to ceiling windows that can be slid away to ensure there is no barrier between the user and the outside landscape.

Upstairs are two large roof terraces, as a well as a master suite with its own two balconies, and individually set mode light settings,safe and open plan bathroom with free standing bath and separate shower.

The house has been carefully designed to allow the wonderful natural breezes to flow through, keeping it pleasantly cool even in the peak of the summer months.

For those clients looking for somewhere unique, stylish and above all calm and chic, Alchemy offers a magical opportunity

About Bianca and David Heeley

Hi, I'm Bianca and I'm really excited to introduce our amazing house Alchemy to you.

My husband - David - and I always dreamt of designing and building a contemporary country house in beautiful Mallorquin countryside . After many years our dream was finally realised in 2012, since when we've continued its sympathetic landscaping ,with a vineyard ,orange , rosemary and olive plantations.

I've lived in Mallorca for over 10 years ,during which time I not only graduated in tourism but built up an extensive knowledge of the islands secret places,best restaurants and special attractions,that I'm now happy to help pass on to you.

As a result of all this experience ,we've now developed "The Alchemy Collection", a rare and exclusive group of unique properties that showcase the very best homes on the island.

With an a la carte compendium of totally bespoke exclusive extras - from home massage, personal trainers and chefs to pre arranged pick up and drop off to ,to special trips to rare and unknown hidden coves and beaches we can offer our guests a holiday to remember.

If you wish we can be your personal concierge giving you 'golden key' access to the most prestigious venues Mallorca has to offer ,as well as access to places only known to the cognoscenti .

Our aim is "Excellence - nothing less" other words Alchemy

Bianca and David Heeley purchased this house in 2012

Why Bianca and David Heeley chose Sant Llorenç des Cardassar

The beautiful island of Mallorca has many rental properties but very few can compare with the facilities, location, easy access and surroundings that Alchemy can boast.

Just 35 minutes drive from the airport and the further 5 to Palma, it is situated in one of the islands most beautiful and least known locations.

Only 3 km away from the charming village of Sant Llorenç - with its surprisingly good choise of cafes and restaurants - it is just over 10 min drives to the white sands of Costa dels Pins and the small resorts of Cala Millor and Sa Coma to the South, or 15 min drive to the unspoiled surfer's paradise of the Colonia Sant Jordi.

With everything from walks in the hills and country side around the house, to discovering typical Mallorquin villages or vinyards, guests can experience the real Mallorca and still drive to its capital Palma for its restaurants and bars, shops and beaches.

What makes this house unique

Alchemy is practicaly unique on the whole island, as it is one of the very few contemporary country villas that exist anywhere here.

Its appeal is not only its design but its tranquility and guests always comment on how relaxed and revived they feel when reluctantly checking out.

Nowhere offers its style and facilities, the magical combination is indeed.... alchemy.
