This property was abandoned many years ago, and when Rosa and Claudio took it over in 2012, it was in a really bad state.
The oldest building is more than 100 years old. Both houses have been totally renovated: heating and air conditioning were installed, all the outside carpentry and roof were remade using the original materials, as well as electrical installations and pipes were changed.
The renovation was completed in June 2014, and since then the house is being rented out as a vacacional … 9 months a year.
The main characteristic of Son Blanc is the concept of total respect towards the original structures. With this in mind, the renovation was done using a lof the materials and elements already present.
Keeping in the same line, Claudio has converted these materials into the interior decoration of both houses. As just one example of many, the dining table and the bathroom furniture was made of the old ceiling beams.
The two houses that make up this property, share a small salt water pool and a patio.
Old house: On the ground floor of 28 m2, there’s a small open kitchen and a dining area. The space is visually divided by a wooden staircase leading to the first floor. This floor also counts with the same space, with a big bedroom (bedroom number 1 OM with a 160cm double bed), a bathroom and a small seating area.
New house: The ground floor has a double bedroom (bedroom number 2 KRISHNA with a 160 cm double bed), a living room and a bathroom with glassed shower. On the first floor there’s a double bedroom (bedroom number 3 YAMUNA with a 160cm double bed) with direct access to a small terrace
