Charming townhouse with commercial/retail space, garage and sea views for Sale in Port d’Andratx
This unique opportunity is located in the beautiful Port d’Andratx, south west Mallorca.
It is located in the foothills of the magnificent Tramuntana mountain range, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and yet within only 30 minutes drive from the island’s cosmopolitan capital of Palma and the international airport just beyond.
This long-established fishing port is now also a thriving yachting marina, and a luxury tourist destination, attracting affluent visitors all year round.
Set just a short stroll away from the beautiful and popular harbourside promenade, in an attractive cobbled, pedestrianised side street, stands this charming Mallorcan townhouse in an ideal position, set in a central and busy thoroughfare. Above the street-level commercial space, is the 3 bedroom residence, spread over 3 levels complete with several balconies and topped off with a glorious roof terrace, encompassing 360-degree bird’s eye views of this prestigious port, out to the open sea, and along the beautiful Andratx valley to the majestic mountains beyond.
The building occupies a plot of 45m2. The complete constructed area of the building is 183m2, of which 130m2 is occupied by the living space, and 45m2 being the ground floor shop.
A garage, located a short walk away, also comes as part of this property, offering advantageous and convenient parking (or useful storage space), in the centre of this bustling port.
The Commercial Premises
The commercial space of 45.2m2 is found at street level, on the corner of two pedestrianised streets, only metres away from the glamorous waterfront and side streets, with their many restaurants, bars and shops. The retail space has benefitted from several renovations over the years, the latest has included a new high-quality natural stone floor, refurbished walls and all new pipework.
There are many other successful businesses in these narrow streets, with excellent footfall in this popular, luxurious and exclusive destination.
The ground floor is completely self-contained, and benefits from a toilet and small store room. It also has its own electric and water supply, metered independently of the house.
The space lends itself to usage as a boutique, an office, a gallery, or a small bar, cafe or food outlet. A licence for outdoor tables and seating is possible, and can be applied for through the local town council.
The garage is located a short walk away in a quiet residential side street. Parking in this busy port, particularly in the busy summer months, can be problematic so this ‘extra’ to the property could be an extremely beneficial bonus. However, it could also offer the possibility of good storage space for whatever business is established in the retail part of the property.
One of the oldest buildings in Port d’Andratx, the house was fully renovated and modernised in 1995. It has beautifully traditional look and feel to it. The top floor and roof terrace were added in 2006, further adding to the generous and comfortable living space. The upper levels were designed by a Feng Shui architect.
The house benefits from underfloor heating, wall mounted marble-panel heaters, ceiling fans, traditional ‘persiana’ window shutters on all windows, and a fluid, open-plan design, featuring spiral staircases to maximise the available space.
