Tres Olivos commands stunning views across the Sierra Tramuntana Mountains and Andratx in the foreground. Even though the location of this impressive historic finca is close to town, at the same time it offers peace and tranquility in an idyllic rural setting. A good example of transforming an area of the house that was originally dark and cold is in the kitchen/dining area. Here we replaced an entire wall with a floor to ceiling glass paneled door which now opens up onto the exterior terrace dining area. We also inserted ceiling glass panels in between the wooden beams to let in yet light and sunshine. The objective of this project, which was completed in less than 15 months, was to maintain
all the historic detail and combine it with subtle modern interiors and technology to offer all the modern day comforts for year round living. The restoration of this type of property can be more challenging than a new construction. However, the finished result is a triumph of today’s know-how with the timeless charm of a traditional Mallorcan finca.
