Spain’s property market enjoyed a positive start to 2017 with sales rising by 18.1% in January compared with the same period last year. Recent figures from Spain’s property registrars highlighted the Balearic Islands as January’s busiest regional housing market with an average of 150 sales per 100,000 inhabitants.
Mallorca has become a rising star of the second home market within Spain and globally, as its golden coastline appeals to an array of buyers. Knight Frank’s latest Prime International Residential Index (PIRI), which tracks the value of luxury homes in 100 key locations worldwide, reveals house price growth on the Spanish island as 2.01% from December 2015 to December 2016.
The PIRI places Mallorca within the top 50 luxury home destinations, even above world renowned second home locations such as The Hamptons and Monaco, as buyers seeking extravagant properties express increasing interest in the Mediterranean isle.
As a resident of the beautiful island himself, Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey España can bear testament to the appeal of Mallorca to the global elite:
“Already a popular holiday destination, Mallorca is now emerging as a hotspot for those seeking a certain level of luxury. And although there is still something for everyone, it is the homes offering a more lavish lifestyle that are now enticing buyers to the island.
“We are delighted to introduce a brand new, highly luxurious residential development – Serenity – within such proximity to one of the Mediterranean’s premium ports, ideal for super-yacht enthusiasts and those wanting to experience tranquillity by the water.”
Marc Pritchard, Sales & Marketing Director, Taylor Wimpey España
Serenity is located next to the Santa Ponsa II Golf Club in Nova Santa Ponsa, one of the most exclusive and highly sought-after areas on the island. This new residential complex offers beautiful 3 bedroom homes from apartments to top floor penthouses.
All units benefit from private terraces, with those on the ground floor enjoying spacious garden areas which are also private. From €545,000 +VAT for an apartment and €790,000 +VAT for a penthouse, residents will enjoy the private use of two swimming pools, surrounded by a solarium area, and luscious communal gardens.
Less than a 30-minute drive from Palma’s international airport, Serenity’s idyllic location is also less than 1km away from the premium Puerto Adriano marina. Designed by Philippe Starck, this super yacht harbour provides berths for boats between 6 and 100 meters long, as well as a wide variety of bars and restaurants and some of the most exclusive designer stores on Mallorca.
