Charming 3 bed, 1 bath 120M2 stone cottage set in a 5,250M2 plot of completely flat land with very good equestrian facilities and 6M x 4M pool in un-spoilt Santa Margalida, northern Mallorca, 10km inland from beautiful beaches.

The property is located in a completely private plot of land that is surrounded by mature trees and a stone wall and gated entrance that gives privacy for the owners and security for their animals or children. This charming home is accessed via a quality tarmac road, has mains services and is within walking distance to Santa Margarita (3km/20 to 30 mins flat walk). So, whilst the property has privacy with peace and tranquility, it is not isolated.

Santa Margalida is a traditional Mallorcan country village with all you need for every day living to include; a medical centre, schools, shops, supermarkets, bars, restaurants and a weekly market. Everyone is friendly here and will stop for a chat to pass the time of day. Tourism has not really touched this part of Mallorca, however, the coast is only 10km away, where you have the choice of a coastal resort or a natural dune beach that is ideal for exercising the horses in winter by day or in the evening during the summer. You cannot get a life much better than this if you are seeking an authentic Mallorcan country life.

There are few places left on Mallorca that can offer a traditional lifestyle off the beaten track yet at the same time be so close to the hubbub and to the beaches.

This property will make a wonderul and peaceful home for a couple or family, a fabulous place if you have hobbies that require outbuildings or of course if you want to keep horses or other animals (maybe a donkey or alpacas!) For those buyers seeking a home for themselves and their horses, there is information about the equestrian facilities below the description of the property.

The cottage of 120M2 was renovated in 2012 to include; the stone facade and stone window reveals, high quality wood effect UPVC double glazing with low ‘e’ (thermal break glazing), a very effective wood burning stove that heats the entire cottage during the cooler winter evenings, a beautiful new bathroom has been installed in a contemporary style that blends perfectly with the character of the home.

The covered entrance porch was improved for the enjoyment of lounging and dining in complete shade during hotter days and it is equally enjoyable for alfresco dining during the warm Mallorcan evenings. This alfresco covered porch extends the living space of the cottage extensively and can be enjoyed in winter when the sun is lower and warms the porch perfectly for an enjoyable alfresco lunch.

The 6M x 4M pool is just perfect for cooling off during hotter summer days and evenings. It is easy to maintain and has the filtration/pump house in place under the small pool terrace. The plunge pool was originally the alberca for the finca (only water storage facility before mains water) and in recent times it has become a rain water collection facility once more. The current owners are dedicated environmentalists who decided they wanted to give the pool over to rain water and wildlife. Should the pool be desired for recreation use once again, this can easily be achieved. A pump and filter will need to be put in place but this is a relatively cheap and easy job to have done.

The accommodation comprises

3 double bedrooms – two with built-in wardrobes (two of the bedrooms are currently used as single bedrooms/home-offices).

The living room is a welcoming, light and bright room that has large dual aspect windows that frame the beauty of the garden. There is a wood burning stove for the cooler months which provides a pleasantly warm ambience for the cottage as a whole.

The kitchen/dining room is large with built-in floor units in keeping with the styling of the property. There is also a walk-in pantry and ample space for a large dining table. Again, this room is dual aspect which makes it light and bright. The kitchen/dining room connects well with the living room so those in the kitchen do not feel isolated from those in the living room.

The bathroom has a large walk-in shower and the entire bathroom is beautifully tiled in neutral, modern tiling. There is a white suite and dark wood vanity unit and storage cupboards that blend superbly with the styling of the cottage.

In the corridor/hallway there is; a huge wardrobe that is ideal for the storage of clothing for the changing seasons.

Loft space – there is a loft above the ceilings of the cottage with an access ladder from the hallway. This is perfect for storage. Where else do you store the Christmas tree?!?

A sun roof terrace offers beautiful views over the unspoiled landscape with a sea of green trees stretching as far as the eye can see. Up here, you can relax and enjoy the view.

Communications include a supply of Broadband via satellite for just €35 per month and this gives 8Mbps download so working from home is easy. Equally, international TV can be streamed whilst others in the property work on a computer and use the internet. If a higher internet speed is required, the company that supplies the Broadband can increase the speed for a higher tariff. Equally, the internet provider can offer a telephone with a local number if desired. The current owners use their mobile phones as the coverage is excellent.

Mains services are connected to the property, both electricity and water. There is a 4,000ltr underground water deposit for a back-up supply should the mains be cut (for repairs to a pipe for example). The dip pool can be used for leisure or for water storage, as desired.

Outbuildings

The old casita 35M2 is now used as a storage facility for gardening equipment and as a workshop. Next to this structure is an old bread oven that can still be used if desired. It is very probable the town hall will give permission for this building to be renovated but unlikely it will be given permission to be converted for residential use. It would make a wonderful outbuilding for all kinds of hobbies.

Equestrian facilities

A finca of 5,250 sqm of land does not sound large for equestrian facilities, however, because every square meter of the land is flat and usable, it is perfect – enough for three stables plus feed room, three paddocks, a circular horse training school, hay barn, beautifully enclosed by a beautiful Mallorcan stone wall with fencing on top of it. Safe for both animals and children.

Agricultural licence (animal husbandry) permits the keeping of horses (all types of animals) on the land.

Three stables are located away from the cottage. Each is 3M x 3M with an automated drinking cups system. The stables are designed with half open backs so that air can travel through the stable. Outside the stables is a covered yard to protect the horses and yourself from the sun or rain for grooming and feeding. From here, the yard opens into paddock. Most of the time the horses are free to come and go into their stables from the paddock.

Feed store – this is located within the run of stables and is 3 M x 3M.

Turning out – the rest of the and is flat and the horses can be turned out to stretch their legs and canter around. There are two further paddocks behind the stables.

There is a picadero (circular horse training school) that is ideal for lunging horses for training and exercise. It can also be used for turning out.

Tack room – there is what some would call as ‘summer house,’ used as a tack room.

Hay barn – in the upper part of the finca is the hay barn, a metal construction covered with a tarpaulin. It is 70M2 and comes in very handy if you are thinking about living with your horses or donkeys. It is easily removable if you don’t require it.

Water taps are located at strategic places around the land so water does not have to be carried.

The land and formal gardens

The land and gardens are fully enclosed with a dry wall that is topped with fencing, so it is safe for the dogs
not to escape. There is a formal garden area and a number of big trees and tall bushes create shady areas all over the finca. At the bottom of the land are the fruit trees, there are plums, mulberry, figs, almonds, oranges, pomegranates and nisperos.

Chicken coop is located on the way to the stables.

Legal paperwork

All paperwork is in order, the house is fully registered and legal. The current owners recently presented their paperwork to the town hall and were advised that it is some of the best legal paperwork they had seen for some time!

Santa Margalida and amenities available further away

The village of Santa Margalida that is 3km away offers; a school, a post office, a healthcare centre, some supermarkets and shops, petrol station and, of course, a number of bars and restaurants. Here life passes at almost the same pace as it used to do before the era of tourism. Even the twice weekly market days are tranquil, more a social event, an opportunity to meet, chat and have coffees than anything else. The shopping is only an additional handy feature.

If you require hospital treatment; modern, efficient, friendly and very competent hospitals are to be found in Manacor and Inca that are 18km drive.

Hypermarket shopping is located in Can Picafort which is 8km away.

Palma capital city takes between half an hour and 45 mins’ drive depending on traffic. Same for the airport.

The local beaches

If you feel like going to the beach, there are two very different options to be reached in 10 mins’ drive. One is the populated beach of Son Bauló, where tourism thrives and where you can ‘people watch’, shop all you want, eat out and feel like you just arrived in a busy holiday resort with its beautiful white sand beache. The other option is to go to Son Serra de Marina with its endless natural beaches with dunes. There are some very good restaurants right by the beach, but the beaches are undeveloped and much less busy. In winter this is a heaven for windsurf and horse riding.
