Village House

Village House

This 200year old stone village house in Binissalem as bought virtually ruined ready for a total redesign and rebuild.

Initial structural work included building a new kitchen extension with terrace on top for the master bedroom and forming four new window / door openings in the massive stone walls. We built three new bathrooms, three bedrooms and increased the lounge size to 40m2 with a wood burning stove-piped through a cold north facing bedroom.

The character of the house is retained by using reclaimed doors, timber windows, exposing a stone arch, and retaining features such as a well head and kitchen fireplace. The combination of old pine, terracotta and natural stone contribute to the “olde world” feel of the house. On the services side we incorporated new installations for electrics, plumbing, central heating and air conditioning.

Outside in place of the old demolished bathroom we built a kitchen patio and in the rest of the garden the old fig and palm trees were retained and the general area seeded.

Proform worked hard all summer to build our new house while we were away. I was very pleasantly shocked to see what they had achieved when we returned to Mallorca. Not only was it built well but we were very happy with the design advice given to us by Proform and the architect. We are very comfortable here.
