Architecture Wednesday: La Finca

Ah, Espana.

This 700-year-old--and you read that right--Spanish farmhouse is located in one of the most picturesque villages in Palma de Mallorca.

No longer a farmhouse, though, now it is a private family holiday residence. But the architects worked hard to create a balance between the rustic past and a clean, modern future. It's quaint, and yet fresh, a bit worn, but brand new; it's the perfect getaway.

In addition, La Finca’s landscape design was inspired by the rough and dramatic Mallorcan terrain, which surrounds the property. Its gardens incorporate an orchard, ancient olive trees, a guesthouse and a 15 meter pool, the centerpiece of the garden, designed to appear suspended over the property’s orange orchard.

I love this home! Too bad I'll never find one here in SoCal like that because of our earthquakes. :-(

Oh yes, I could make myself at home up in here!!! I love the clean feeling inside. I also want to live there just because of the name of the village-Palma de Mallorca! There will be a B-B Q at twelve oaks tonight!!!
