— Ulrike: “The design is very calm, not exaggerated. It’s a combination of new and old without being over-styled. It’s like a house that’s been here all the time. It’s a very human house.”
Interview By:

— How would you describe Pollença Town House in a nutshell?

Ulrike: “Our holiday home is a proud major townhouse in the heart of the historic old town of Pollensa. Being over 150 years old, it has been completely refurbished and turned into a calm and spacious holiday home with probably one of the coolest patios on Mallorca.”

— Please describe the layout of the house and property.

Ulrike: “The house has three stories. On the ground floor we have the living area and kitchen inside and the patio with pool, dining area, sunbeds and sofas outside.

The staircase brings you to the first floor with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, a library and an office space. All the rooms have sliding doors. In front of the library is the music room, which is open to the other rooms and the patio.

The top floor consists of one bedroom and one bathroom. The other rooms are open to each other, creating a large space that can be a work space or a second dining room. It has a kitchen as well. If you want, you can use the top floor separately for friends or kids, like a stand-alone apartment. The middle room on this floor opens to the terrace with a view over the mountains and the city.

There are terraces and bathrooms on all levels, both inside and outside.”

— What was your inspiration to buy the house and refurbish it?

Ulrike: “We never found an area that we enjoyed as much as this part of Mallorca. We toured up in the Tramuntana mountains and saw all these picturesque villages and ended up in the town of Pollensa. There we were! This house wanted us, and as it obviously was not in use, we asked if it was for sale. It was, indeed!

We designed the complete refurbishment including the whole interior. A local architect helped with the technical plans and the realisation. For the refurbishment, we kept everything that was worth keeping, and replaced everything that had to be renewed. No fakes, no compromises: what looks old is original, what looks new is added by us.

It is really a house to 'live' in, not only a base for holidays. Therefore, we appreciate to have guests who are interested in good architecture and culture, who are looking for an original village around. People who just like good atmosphere.”

— How would you describe the atmosphere inside the house?

Ulrike: “We would say that the house gives you a feeling of well-being. The design is very calm, not exaggerated. It’s a combination of new and old without being over-styled. A proud house that does not need to shout – human, elegant and likable, where every small detail has been designed.

And the climate inside the house and the great patio are extremely agreeable, at any time of the year.”

— How would you describe the architecture and interior design?

Ulrike: “The townhouse had been a very reputable house in its day. Our approach was to redesign its pride. We were able to carve out the original structure from the thick sandstone walls and wooden beams in the high ceilings. Even some original furniture, doors and tiles could be conserved and given a new life. You really feel and see the contrast of old and new. Scarp angels meet rustic stonewalls.”

— What sort of facilities and services are available to the guests?

Ulrike: “The house is self-catering. We like the benefit of having a nice and well organised kitchen that is extremely well-equipped, even for the most ambitious cooking. Most of our guests really like cooking but they also go out and visit the good restaurants within walking distance.

If you are interested in music, we have a piano in the house. We have a small but well-stocked library of books in different languages. There’s not a TV in every room, but one large TV in one of the common areas. And a Sonos sound system. And a fireplace. And a stream in the pool. And enough space to store both your bikes and golf equipment.

The pool and patio area have sunbeds. There are different outdoor dining spaces, surrounded by cypresses, olive, lime, lemon and orange trees. We also have a barbecue. The patio has a lovely atmosphere. One floor up on the edge of that patio is a private terrace where you can lounge on outdoor sofas. All the terraces offer privacy, and sun and shadow during the day.”
