Full description:

This property is a historic and traditional town house which dates from the beginning of the 20th century and is typical of its era. It is in an unbeatable location right next to the Main Square on a side street. Nearby there are some fantastic restaurants and pavement cafés to suit all tastes and a colourful fruit and vegetable market on Sunday mornings. The house has a lot of potential and could be turned into a dream property if renovated in an imaginative and creative way. It has up to the present been used as a family home but could easily be converted into a commercial project such as a boutique hotel. It currently has six bedrooms but the possibilities are many and varied to use the space in a different way. Pollensa is one of the most highly sought after towns in the north of Mallorca and attracts many visitors who enjoy the spectacular views from the top of the 365 Calvario Steps, stroll down the narrow cobbled streets and browse in the lovely little shops. A short drive takes you to the coastal town of Puerto Pollensa, where you will find family friendly sandy beaches, the charming Pine Tree seafront promenade and a wide variety of water sports and acitivites on offer.
The property offers the opportunity to own a unique house in the most perfect location.

About Pollenca
At the eastern end of the Serra de Tramuntana and tucked between two hills, each topped by a sacred site, Pollenca is the perfect Mallorcan town. Large enough to avoid being twee but small enough to wander round in a morning, it has none of the feel of other towns which have succumbed under the sheer weight of tourism.Foreigners have long been attracted here, but Pollensa has learned to accept and adapt to tourism without losing its soul. Cafe life is still the rule; if you want to join in, come on a Sunday morning when the Placa Major is filled with market stalls and the locals congregate after church to relax in the Cafe Espanyol.Archaeological remains indicate that humans occcupied the area of Pollenca in pre-Talayotic times (2000-1500BC). The Romans conquered Mallorca in 123 BC and whilst there are important remains in nearby Alcudia (where the Romans based themselves) there are no ruins left in Pollensa.Any settlement on the current site of Pollenca was likely destroyed by the marauding Vandals in the 5th century and it was not until the Moors arrived in the 12th century that the town as we know it today was formed. The Moors built irrigation systems for agriculture which allowed the village to prosper. A tombstone from this period can be seen in the Museum of Mallorca in Palma.Pollensa began to grow once the Chrsitians under Jaume I conquered Majorca. The King ceded this area to the Templars, who were at this time very powerful. Pollenca flourished until the Black Death ravaged the town in 1348. Poor harvests followed and Pollensa fell from being an important outpost with triumphal monuments and a university, to a typical Mallorcan medieval village.During the 16th century, the coast to the north of Pollensa suffered repeated attacks from pirates, who would frequently raid inland aswell. These pirate attacks are commemorated each year on 2nd August where battle re-enactments, fireworks and concerts see the town come alive.Towards the end of the 16th century, the Dominicans (a Catholic religious order) settled in Pollenca and with them started the construction of grand houses and the introduction of Guilds. The construction of a dock at the Port de Pollensa in 1830 allowed greater trading and helped create more wealth for the town.The end of the 19th century saw the start of an artistic influx. Michael Costa llobera, a Catalan poet, and other esteemed painters, musicians and historians all descended on Pollensa, and this artistic tradition continues today. The 20th century saw the growth of tourism as a revenue stream for the area, and craft industries such as shoe-making, carpet factories and raffia products established themselves. Agriculture remained the most important employment area of the town until the 1960's when the tourism boom struck the coastal areas.

About Morgan And Morgan , Mallorca

Morgan And Morgan challenge the traditional view of estate agency, ensuring customers experience an outstanding, honest and friendly service. When we originally started talking about selling property in Spain, we asked everyone we knew (and lots of people we didn't) how they really feel about local estate agents.

It was, say the least, something of an eye-opener. We aim to take all the irritations about dubious sales tactics and poor communication and find a more open, honest and collaborative way to work with our customers.

And we're like you - Buying a second home in Spain doesn’t have to be complicated – we have all had our experience of the good, bad & the ugly Estate agents thats how we evolved. You just need an estate agent who speaks your language. Welcome to Morgan And Morgan.

Since its inception at the start of 2013 Morgan & Morgan has already been incredibly well received and credited by buyers and local owners to be the “future of estate agency”.
