Second home buyers just can’t get enough of Mallorca

Second home buyers just can’t get enough of Mallorca

  • Taylor Wimpey España reports 80% of development sold in just 3 months
  • Newly launched Es Llaut apartments at Cala Bona coincide with reduced travel restrictions
  • Sustainability to remain a top priority for all Mallorca properties

From Love Island to its newly won spot on the UK’s green travel list, Mallorca has a lot going on right now – and so does its property market. Leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España has sold 80% of its Port Blau development in just three months, while its homes at Las Villas de Dalt de Sa Rapita have sold out entirely (watch this space for details of a new phase launching soon).

The news comes as Taylor Wimpey España reveals the first glimpse of its new Mallorca development, Es Llaut. Named after a traditional Mallorcan fishing boat, the development is home to 32 two-bedroom apartments with large terraces and gardens, situated in Cala Bona, close to Port Verd. Just a short stroll from the beach, harbour and town, the spacious homes are flooded with natural light, with beautifully unobstructed views from the upper terraces. Prices start from €276,000 plus VAT.

“With open plan kitchen and living areas that lead out onto generously sized terraces, Es Llaut delivers the ideal environment for enjoying long, lazy holiday days away from the cares of the world. We are delighted to be able to launch these apartments just as Britons are able to travel to Mallorca once more and enjoy the incredible natural beauty that the island has to offer.”

Taylor Wimpey España is doing all it can to contribute to the long-term preservation of that natural beauty by building sustainability into the design and build process of Es Llaut (along with all the company’s other developments). This is a key area of focus for the housebuilder.

At Es Llaut, energy efficiency is achieved through individual heat pumps for efficient domestic hot water production, three-speed mechanical interior air renewal systems and individually controlled air conditioning in each room. LED spotlights mean that very little energy is consumed for lighting the homes, taps are fitted with aerators to reduce output and toilets feature dual flush technology, as each room plays its part in terms of enhanced sustainability.

Sustainability also features strongly in the communal areas at Es Llaut. There are bioclimatic architectural elements for sun protection and control, preinstallation of charging stations for an electric vehicle in each parking space and garden irrigation using a drip system. The outdoor and pool lighting is on an automatic timer, there’s a storage take for drinking water and a rainwater tank for irrigation purposes. Grey water harvesting, meanwhile, is used for irrigation and WC cisterns.

“Our challenge is to push the boundaries of what we can achieve in terms of sustainability with every new development and we’re delighted with Es Llaut’s eco-credentials. We’ve prioritised local businesses and suppliers in the construction supply chain as well, to minimise the carbon footprint of the build.”

As Mallorca welcomes British travellers once more, many will be keen to use their time on the island to find the perfect second home. Given how quickly its other developments have been selling, Taylor Wimpey España’s advice is to book a site visit (either in person or virtually) without delay, particularly as interest in Balearic properties is expected to boom now that Brits are flying there once more.
