Taylor Wimpey España launches new show home amid golf tourism and house price boom

Taylor Wimpey España launches new show home amid golf tourism and house price boom

Spain ,
  • Spain accounts for ¼ of top 100 golf resorts in Continental Europe (Today’s Golfer)
  • Spanish/Portuguese played rounds up nearly 30% over winter season (Tee Times Golf Agency)
  • House prices along Mediterranean coast up 4.5% – more than any other region (Tinsa)

From golf tourism to house prices, Spain’s Mediterranean coast is looking particularly healthy at present. What better time, then, for leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España to launch its newest golf resort show home?

Green Golf at Estepona (Malaga) is ideally positioned to court the rise in interest in Spanish golf resorts. Today’s Golfer Magazine’s Top 100 Golf Resorts in Continental Europe 2018/19 included 25 Spanish destinations, meaning that Spain alone accounts for a quarter of the best courses across Continental Europe.

Meanwhile, Tee Times Golf Agency, which serves both Spain and Portugal, has reported a near-30% uptick in the number of rounds that clients played between the November 2017-February 2018 and November 2018-February 2019 periods.

That’s against a backdrop of tourism numbers in Spain rising by 3.7% in 2018, when almost 90 million people chose Spain for their holidays. Over the winter months (November 2018-March 2019), the Costa del Sol in particular saw tourism thrive, with 3.2 million visitors – the area’s best ever winter season, according to government figures. That number is expected to rise to 13 million travellers by the end of the summer season, which would represent an all-time high for the Costa del Sol.

Golf has always been an important element of Spain’s tourism offering. We have the ideal weather, incredible scenery and some simply outstanding courses. Add to that the charms of the coastline and the excellent cuisine and it’s clear to see why Spain’s golf resorts hold such strong and lasting appeal.”

Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director of Taylor Wimpey España

The Mediterranean coast is also thriving in terms of its housing market. Prices there rose by 4.5% in the year to April 2019 according to the latest data from Tinsa. That’s a greater increase than was seen in any other area of the country.

Within this booming area, Green Golf delivers high-specification homes to families looking to be at the heart of the golfing action. With panoramic views over the course at Estepona Golf and out to sea, the properties enjoy an incredibly picturesque setting. Natural light is maximised through their south/southwest positioning and sophisticated design.

The new Green Golf show home highlights the development’s superb credentials. The large, south-facing terrace is ideal for outdoor dining or general relaxation, while the interior is bright and spacious. A large communal pool and landscaped gardens complete the offering, making this the perfect option for happy holidays with family and friends. Prices start from €280,000 plus VAT.

“The Mediterranean coast has been a popular holiday destination for decades, with golf playing a major role in driving that. We’re delighted to be building on this history of success by presenting contemporary homes for holidaymakers looking to experience Spain’s unique brand of relaxation and enjoyment.”

Balearic house price growth double national average, as Taylor Wimpey España announces Sunset Ibiza launch

Balearic house price growth double national average, as Taylor Wimpey España announces Sunset Ibiza launch

Spain ,
  • New Sunset Ibiza homes mark developer’s first site on island since 2014
  • Balearic and Canary Islands enjoying property price growth of 8% (Tinsa)
  • Balearic tourism up 15.93% in February (IBESTAT)

The Balearic and Canary Islands are leading Spanish property price growth, with prices increasing at more than double the national average, according to the latest data from Tinsa. The IMIE General Index shows an annual rate of increase of 8.0% across the islands, compared to a national price rise of 3.9%.

“Spring heralds the start of the buying season in the Balearics, as it does in many other parts of Spain. On islands such as Mallorca and Ibiza, the property markets will be busy from now until the end of the summer. Foreign buyers play a significant role in these island markets as they vie with locals to find the perfect property in the perfect location.”

Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director of Taylor Wimpey España

On the island of Ibiza, those seeking their ideal home (whether as a second home or a permanent residence), now have a superb new development to consider. Leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España has just announced the launch of Sunset Ibiza – the company’s first development on the island since 2014.

Offering incredible views over the bay at Cala Gracio and Conillera island, Sunset Ibiza is an exclusive collection of two and three-bedroom apartments, priced from €410,500. Large private terraces and the communal pool and gardens are perfect for enjoying the spectacular sunsets for which the island is so well known. Internally, the light-filled apartments offer spacious, elegant island living, making this frontline development an extremely attractive option for those looking to enjoy the best of the Ibiza lifestyle.

“We are delighted to be building on Ibiza once again, having spent quite some time scouring the island for the perfect site. Sunset Ibiza will be a truly outstanding new frontline development, which maximises the very best elements of life on the island.”

Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director of Taylor Wimpey España

The launch is well timed. Not only are property prices in the Balearics rising faster than anywhere else in Spain, visitor numbers are also up significantly. According to the latest figures from IBESTAT, tourism to the Balearic Islands was up by 15.93% in February 2019, compared with the same month in 2018. Whichever way you look at it, Ibiza is thriving, making now the ideal time for Taylor Wimpey España to announce the launch of its beautifully positioned new homes.

Housing transaction levels remain resilient as wage growth enhances buyer affordability

Housing transaction levels remain resilient as wage growth enhances buyer affordability

United Kingdom ,
  • Annual wage growth at 3.4%, while house price growth stands at 2.0% (Rightmove)
  • 9% National Living Wage increase to further enhance affordability
  • Buyers and investors both helping to keep housing market moving despite political uncertainty (Surrenden Invest)
  • North West to enjoy greatest price rises – at 21.6% – over next 5 years (Savills)
  • 1% April price uplift in properties coming to market is biggest since 2016 (Rightmove)

Wage growth in the UK is outstripping house price growth at its fastest rate since 2011, enhancing buyer affordability. This is contributing to both mortgage approvals and housing transactions holding up well, despite the ongoing political uncertainty related to Brexit. Indeed, the February 2019 Zoopla/Hometrack UK Cities House Price Index states that, “Data on transactions remains resilient with no obvious Brexit impact at a national level.”

According to the report, there was no material drop in mortgage approval activity or transaction volumes during the latter half of 2018, when compared with the five-year average. Furthermore, HMRC figures show that transaction volumes actually increased slightly during the first two months of 2019.

Rightmove’s April 2019 House Price Index adds to the positive picture, reporting a 1.1% price uplift for properties coming to market during the month – the highest spring boost since April 2016 and the largest monthly rise since March 2018.

“The latest figures are further evidence of the UK housing market’s resilience in the face of the Brexit debacle. Improving buyer affordability enhances that resilience even more, with strong transaction levels supporting a buoyant market for both owner occupiers and investors.”

Jonathan Stephens, MD, Surrenden Invest

Annual wage growth stands at 3.4% according to Rightmove’s latest House Price Index. That compares to an average annual rate of house price growth of 2.0%. Not only that, but the National Living Wage in the UK has just risen by 4.9%. As of 1 April 2019, the national minimum wage rose from £7.83 per hour to £8.21 for those aged 25+. Workers aged 21-24 also saw an increase, from £7.38 per hour to £7.70, while those aged 18-20 saw a rise from £5.90 to £6.15.

According to specialist property investment agency Surrenden Invest, the impact of this can best be seen at a local level, where buyers are enjoying a distinct advantage thanks to their increased purchasing power. Combine that with Rightmove’s reporting that new sellers’ asking prices are cheaper than they were a year ago in three out of four southern regions, for example, and the picture is looking positive for both buyers and investors.

Further north, many regional cities have been outstripping the price growth of their southern counterparts over the past three years, thanks to rising employment levels, as well as enhanced affordability. Two cities – Leicester and Manchester – have even achieved price growth of 17% since the Brexit vote, creating fantastic capital growth for those who timed their purchases right around the time of the referendum.

Manchester remains high on the priority list of many an investor – and for good reason. The city is home to an impressive array of redevelopment projects. Two of the largest are the £800 million NOMA site and the £1 billion second phase of MediaCityUK in Salford, which will see the already vast site double in size.

“Such vast developments bring a wealth of opportunities, both for those who live in the city and for those looking to invest there. They can also trigger fundamental shifts in demand in the local housing market, with sudden increases in the need for rental accommodation meaning that the private sector has to rapidly up its game in terms of the number of properties on offer.” 

Jonathan Stephens, MD, Surrenden Invest

One development that is responding to the rising demand for homes in central Manchester is Middlewood Plaza. Available from £153,000, the sleek apartments deliver luxurious living in the Middlewood Locks regeneration zone. A private roof terrace, secure underground parking and smart home technology included as standard make this one of the most appealing developments in Manchester for buy to let investors with a keen eye for strategically located and well-designed properties.

With both investors and owner occupiers keen to be part of Manchester’s future, and with enhanced buyer affordability coming into play, there are likely to be a busy few months and years ahead for the city’s property market. Indeed, Savills’ latest five-year forecast projects that the whole of the North West region has a rosy future ahead, enjoying projected compound price growth of 21.6% through to the end of 2023 (compared to a national average of 14.8%).

Taylor Wimpey España announces key Mallorca cycle race support

Taylor Wimpey España announces key Mallorca cycle race support

Spain ,
  • Mallorca 312 is one of the island’s best-loved cycling competitions
  • Route will pass within 15 minutes of stunning new Blue Cove development
  • Mallorca flagged as main 2019 holiday destination for European cyclists

The Mallorca 312 is one of the island’s most testing and loved cycling competitions. Taking place on 27 April 2019, the race will cross 312 km of Mallorca’s beautiful landscape, including climbing 16,568 feet over the course of the route. Entrants will set off at 7 am and have until 9 pm to prove their mettle by completing the gruelling circuit.

This year, Taylor Wimpey España has chosen to support the race by hiring a stand at one of the key points along the route, which includes a stop at Arta – just a 15-minute drive from the leading Spanish homebuilder’s new Blue Cove development in Cala Lliteras. Available from €225,000 plus VAT, the two- and three-bedroom homes at Blue Cove offer a privileged first line location, offering spectacular views out over the turquoise bay. Apartments, duplexes and houses offer a range of accommodation types, all of which enjoy spacious outdoor areas, as well as use of the site’s communal pool and private parking spaces.

Having had such an active presence on Mallorca for so many years, we’ve seen the island steadily build up its reputation as a world-class cycling destination. We’re delighted to become a part of that by getting involved in the internationally renowned Mallorca 312 this year.”

Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director of Taylor Wimpey España

Mallorca’s stunning scenery and Mediterranean climate, with fresh sea breezes to temper the heat, make it a fabulous place to explore on two wheels. The landscape ranges from open plains to rugged mountains to the idyllic coastline, meaning that cyclists have plenty of variety as they tour the island. The Mallorca 312 route takes in much of the northern half of the island, stretching as far east as Arta and out as far as Andratx to the west.

December to June is the key cycling season on Mallorca and the 2019 season is on track to be a hugely successful one, attracting an estimated 250,000 cyclists according to local tour operators and sporting events organisers. The 25% increase on 2018’s two-wheeled visitors means that Mallorca has emerged as the main holiday destination for European cyclists this year, according to those working in the local industry. Meanwhile, the AETIB reports that turnover from bicycle tourism is expected to hit £300 million over the course of 2019.

Part of Mallorca’s appeal (in addition to the beautiful weather and scenery) is its suitability to cyclists of all levels. The island welcomes complete novices just as warmly as it does professional racers. And, though the peak season runs until June, cyclists still flock to the island during the latter half of the year.

“The number of cyclists holidaying in Mallorca has increased hugely since 2010 and looks set to do so again this year. The island has responded by enhancing its facilities for cyclists, in order to enable them to enjoy Mallorca fully as they explore this fascinating destination.”

Taylor Wimpey España takes the #10yearchallenge

Taylor Wimpey España takes the #10yearchallenge

Spain ,
  • Reservations up by 184% over past decade
  • Kiruna Residencial showcases contemporary building style and interiors
  • Number of nationalities served up from 20 in 2008 to 37 in 2018

The Spanish property market has changed hugely over that past 10 years and so has one of its key operators. Leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España has been building in Spain for 60 years, so has seen the market fluctuate significantly during its long and proud history. However, the changes over the past decade have been particularly pronounced. Now, the company has dipped into the archives to take part in the #10yearchallenge and show how far it – and the Spanish property market – have come in that time.

Back in 2008, the global financial crisis began to bring the Spanish property market to its knees, as it did property markets around the world. Prices tumbled and many firms ceased building, either temporarily or permanently, over the following years. The recovery was a slow process, but the market we see today is both strong and resilient.”

Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director of Taylor Wimpey España

10 years ago, Taylor Wimpey España (then Taylor Woodrow) was focused on providing high quality holiday homes in key Spanish hotspots, just as it is today. However, the modern company is considerably larger than its younger self. 2008 saw a total of 120 reservations, while 2018 saw 341 – an increase of 184%. At the same time, the company has gone from serving 20 different nationalities to serving 37 – a rise of 85%. The staff team has grown from 64 employees to 86.

The properties themselves have also changed considerably over the past 10 years. The architecture of sites such as Taylor Wimpey España’s Brisas de Alenda has given way to the more contemporary, angular exteriors seen at Kiruna Residencial. Internally, buildings have taken on a different feel too, with a more design-conscious approach resulting in stylish interiors that showcase the very best of contemporary interior design.

“It’s always a proud moment when you look back and see how far you’ve come. Over the past 10 years, we’ve adapted our style to ensure that it remains both relevant and exciting, while still delivering the spacious homes and superb amenities for which Taylor Wimpey España developments are so well known. Taking part in the #10yearchallenge has been a very worthwhile experience – it has highlighted how much the company has grown and how many more clients we are now able to serve from around the world.”

Brexit-beating property investment tips from Surrenden Invest

Brexit-beating property investment tips from Surrenden Invest

United Kingdom ,
  • Opt for regional city centre locations where pockets of demand are highest
  • Medium to long-term vision is key
  • Focus on areas where rents and property values are rising fastest

According to Knight Frank, the Brexit-related uncertainty that the UK is currently experiencing is leading to a ‘wait and see’ effect in some parts of the country’s property market. However, given the UK’s chronic undersupply of rental apartments and the fact that rents are rising steadily (the average increase was 1.0% in the year to January 2019), many residential property investors want to act now rather than wait and see what happens with the ongoing political saga. As such, specialist property investment agency Surrenden Invest has shared its Brexit-beating property investment tips, for those who want to make their money work for them sooner rather than later.

“The extension to Article 50 is just the latest twist in the ongoing Brexit uncertainty. We’re finding that many investors are tired of waiting to see how it all settles. After all, the current wrangling is only over the withdrawal agreement – there’s still an incredible amount to actually sort out once the 29 March/12 April/22 May deadline has passed. As such, we are working with investors to find Brexit-beating property investment opportunities right now, not in some distant future when the political upheaval has finally settled.”

Jonathan Stephens, MD, Surrenden Invest

Surrenden Invest’s first tip is to focus on existing pockets of demand. City centre living has come back into fashion with a vengeance, meaning that stylish homes with attractive amenities can generate excellent yields when located in the right areas. As JLL observes in its 2019 Northern England Residential Forecasts, “Manchester, Leeds and Liverpool have all seen significant supply shortfalls in the face of an increase in demand from people wanting to live in the core city centres.”

For investors, this provides an opportunity to identify key city centre hotspots. In Manchester, for example, the chic, contemporary Ancoats Gardens apartment building is located just 300m from the vast NOMA site, which is the largest development project in North-West England, costing a cool £800 million. For investors with a medium to long-term outlook, it’s the ideal location to purchase an apartment that will enjoy strong and sustained demand from tenants.

This focus on the medium to long-term is Surrenden Invest’s second Brexit-beating investment tip. The company cites its No. 76 Holloway Head development in Birmingham as the ultimate example of this.

“If you look at No. 76, it has everything that’s needed for a superb medium to long-term investment. The location couldn’t be better, with the Mailbox, Bullring, Grand Central and New Street Station all within two minutes’ walk – this is the ultimate spot for Birmingham inner city living. But it’s about more than just location. The whole area around No. 76 is undergoing massive redevelopment. It’s about having the vision to look past the cranes and see what the future holds – and how much tenants will want to be at the heart of that future.”

Jonathan Stephens, MD, Surrenden Invest

Finally, Surrenden Invest is encouraging investors who want to beat Brexit to look at areas where both rents and property prices are rising fastest – essentially, a select group of the UK’s regional cities. Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool and Newcastle all have the right credentials, according to the Surrenden Invest team, meaning that investors who focus their attention on the best-placed developments look well positioned to beat the continuing Brexit uncertainty.

Mallorca property market performs well as Taylor Wimpey España launches 2nd Balearic development of 2019

Mallorca property market performs well as Taylor Wimpey España launches 2nd Balearic development of 2019

Spain ,
  • Cala Vinyes Hills II offers impressive new homes in desirable Mallorca location
  • 15,784 Balearic property transactions in 2018 (Colegio Registradores)
  • Buyers focusing on contemporary homes with superb environmental credentials in prime locations

Leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España has announced its second Mallorca residential property development launch of 2019, just three weeks after revealing details of its Blue Cove site.

The new development – Cala Vinyes Hills II – features 16 exclusive, three-bedroom townhouses in a private setting with a communal pool. Spacious private terraces and gardens provide plentiful access to the Mallorcan sunshine, with prices starting from €619,700 plus VAT.

Mallorca’s property market is ticking over beautifully right now and demand for homes is far outstripping the existing supply. Foreign buyers are having a notable influence on the market, accounting for some 34% of buyers. They are driving up prices by snapping up homes and thus reducing overall availability. It’s a trend that we anticipate will continue over the coming years, making now a good time to buy for those looking to grow their capital as well as enjoy their second home.”

Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director of Taylor Wimpey España

The contemporary townhouses of Cala Vinyes Hills II are located in the prestigious Cala Vinyes area, close to Puerto Portals and Port Adriano, as well as the popular Santa Ponsa, Bendinat, Poniente and Son Vida golf courses. The area’s attractions have proven a strong draw for second home buyers over the past several years, making it a key contributor to the Balearics’ 15,784 real estate transactions that took place during 2018.

The stylish homes of Cala Vinyes Hills II are perfectly attuned to buyers’ desires. Spacious, open plan living areas for cooking, dining and relaxing flow through to well-appointed terraces or gardens, making them ideal for the blended indoor/outdoor lifestyle that is so integral to island living. Interiors have been designed to reflect the cool, natural tones of the local environment, with living spaces exuding a calming feel and bedrooms promoting comfort and relaxation.

Mallorca buyers are focusing on modern properties that boast stylish interiors, superior outdoor spaces and excellent environmental credentials – all in a prime location. That is precisely what we’re delivering at Cala Vinyes Hills II. The sustained level of demand for such homes is supporting Mallorca’s property stock to grow at as rapid a pace as the local government feels is appropriate, while still respecting the natural environment. This is leading to a stable and continuing increase in prices, as buyers queue up to buy their dream Mallorcan homes.”

Brownfield boutique arrives in Liverpool

Brownfield boutique arrives in Liverpool

United Kingdom ,
  • Former leather factory being converted into superb apartments at The Tannery (Surrenden Invest)
  • ‘Brownfield first’ policy encouraging housebuilders to focus on developing industrial land
  • Liverpool to become an “exemplar for innovation, sustainability and design excellence”

 

We tend to think of brownfield land as huge swathes of contaminated, former industrial land that now stands derelict while all around it our crowded cities overflow. While the term does indeed incorporate such areas, brownfield sites come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, leading specialist property investment agency Surrenden Invest to take a fresh look at the way we deal with previously developed land. The result? Brownfield boutique!

“We’ve coined the term ‘brownfield boutique’ to inspire developers to take a fresh look at how we think about brownfield sites. A single former industrial building that now stands idle can be transformed into stylish, well located homes with a little imagination – tackling brownfield sites doesn’t have to be left to only the largest developers.”

Jonathan Stephens, MD, Surrenden Invest

Surrenden Invest’s Jonathan Stephens cites The Tannery in Liverpool as an example of brownfield boutique in action. The Tannery sits on the site of a former leatherworks, from which it gets its name. The design of the building reflects its industrial past, with folded aluminium panels resembling the hanged leather that the site’s original building once housed. Horizontal breaks in the façade, meanwhile, represent the leather press.

Within The Tannery, the elegant apartments will offer bright, spacious homes complemented by a range of luxurious facilities, including a 24/7 concierge, a communal courtyard and a roof garden. The development is turning a former industrial site into capital-quality residences in an enviable central Liverpool location.

“The Tannery is brownfield boutique in action. It’s turning disused industrial land into outstanding apartments and supporting Liverpool’s ‘brownfield first’ approach to solve its housing shortage.”

Jonathan Stephens, MD, Surrenden Invest

The ‘brownfield first’ focus was announced by Liverpool City Region Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram in early 2018 to urge housebuilders to consider using brownfield land across Merseyside, as part of work to make the city an “exemplar for innovation, sustainability and design excellence.” The Tannery is one site doing just that.

Taylor Wimpey España gears up for Challenge 2019, following impressive 2018 results

Taylor Wimpey España gears up for Challenge 2019, following impressive 2018 results

Spain ,
  • Taylor Wimpey España completions up 14% and operating profit up 9% in 2018
  • Fundraising for Challenge 2018 saw team raise record total of nearly £13k
  • Challenge 2019 aiming to raise even more money for charity

Leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España has reported impressive results for its 2018 performance, delivering 342 homes over the course of the year, compared with 301 in 2017. The 14% increase in completed homes was complemented by an improved operating profit of £29.2 million for 2018 (2017: £26.8 million). The success of developments such as the Costa del Sol’s La Floresta Sur was key to the company’s robust performance.

However, the Taylor Wimpey team is about more than making Spanish second home buyers’ dreams come true – staff also want to make young people’s dreams come true. They are doing this through active fundraising for their participation in Challenge 2019.

The Challenge event is held every year by Taylor Wimpey in order to raise money for charity. Teams from across the vast organisation test their spirit, strength and teamwork in a series of demanding challenges while raising funds for worthy causes. This year, the teams will be scaling the Brecon Beacons in Wales in order to raise money and awareness for the Youth Adventure Trust, which works with outdoors with vulnerable young people to build their confidence and skills, and DEBRA, which works to improve the quality of life of Spanish people with epidermolysis bullosa, a rare and painful condition where the skin blisters easily.

“The Taylor Wimpey España team is getting into shape ready for Challenge 2019. We’re seeking support for our two chosen charities as we gear up for this year’s event and are looking forward to – hopefully – beating our 2018 fundraising target by quite some way in order to give back to the communities in which we work.” 

Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director of Taylor Wimpey España

Taylor Wimpey España has a strong track record when it comes to the Challenge events. In 2018, the team raised a record-breaking total of just under £13,000 – 323% of its original fundraising target and the highest amount raised by any of the teams taking part. The effort contributed to a total amount pledged by parent company Taylor Wimpey of £167,575 – the highest sum ever raised by its annual Challenge.

The competitive Spanish team also did well during the 2018 event itself, coming first in the ‘Beast’ hiking competition and third in the ‘Dragon’ hiking and biking competition. This year, the team is fired up to perform even better – both in the Brecon Beacons and in terms of its fundraising efforts.

“Doing so well in the Challenge 2018 was a great feeling – but raising so much money for such good causes was an even better one. That’s why we’re pushing this year to beat our fundraising target once more and make Challenge 2019 our most successful year yet!”

Taylor Wimpey España launches Blue Cove in Mallorca, as Spain tops global health ranking

Taylor Wimpey España launches Blue Cove in Mallorca, as Spain tops global health ranking

Spain ,
  • New Blue Cove development provides perfect blend of location and quality
  • Spain is healthiest country on Earth (Bloomberg)
  • Gastronomy, sunshine and coastal delights keep buyer demand strong in Mallorca

 

As if the lure of its sunshine, coastal delights and superb gastronomy weren’t enough, Spain has just been declared the healthiest country on the planet, shooting up the rankings from its previous position of sixth healthiest. The 2019 Bloomberg Healthiest Country Index ranks nations based on factors ranging from sanitation and clean water to obesity and life expectancy. Life expectancy at birth in Spain is already the third highest in the world and is expected to be the highest by 2040.

 

Leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España is certainly familiar with the health benefits of life in Spain, having been building homes on the mainland and the Spanish islands for the past 60 years.

 

The Mediterranean diet is one of the key factors behind Spain’s position as the healthiest country in the world. Not only is the gastronomy focused on fresh, seasonal ingredients, but the extensive use of olive oils and nuts brings further health benefits – as well as creating some superb flavours!”

 

Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director of Taylor Wimpey España

 

 

For those who holiday or buy second homes on Spanish islands such as Mallorca, the local cuisine is a big draw. From delicious vegetable dishes such as tumbet (layered aubergine, potato and red bell peppers topped with tomato) to the stew-like arros brut, the island’s many gastronomic delights are a real pleasure to experience. Together with the myriad other joys of Mallorcan life (the sea, mountains and balmy climate, for starters), its cuisine cannot help but charm. For those looking to make it a regular part of their lives and enjoy the health benefits of all things Spanish, a holiday home on Mallorca makes perfect sense.

 

Taylor Wimpey’s just-launched Blue Cove development at Cala Lliteras (Capdepera) is ideally located to enable buyers to enjoy the best of island life. The first line homes overlook the sea, with spectacular views over the bay and its turquoise water. A coastal footpath leads to Cala Agulla, just 750m away, meaning that the properties provide the perfect blend of tranquillity and easy beach access.

 

Blue Cove provides a range of one and two-bedroom apartments, two-bedroom duplexes and three-bedroom townhouses, all designed with Taylor Wimpey España’s usual level of exceptional attention to detail and high-quality finishes. The ground floor homes enjoy private gardens, while the penthouses and duplexes benefit from private solarium terraces and terraces to the front. Owners also have exclusive use of the development’s generously sized shared pool. Prices start from €181,000 plus VAT.

 

We are delighted to be launching a site as stunning as Blue Cove on Mallorca. The setting really is exceptional and we have used Mallorcan design and Mediterranean-style architecture to ensure that the homes do justice to their premium position. Mallorca remains one of our key areas of focus, with strong buyer demand for properties that offer the perfect blend of location and quality.”
