Villa Colani in Mallorca
Santa Ponca, Nova, Calvia, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain
Hillside Location, Short Drive from the new Philippe Starck designed Yacht Harbor Port Adriano, Breathtaking Views of the Sea and the Malgrats Islands.
Known as Villa Colani, inspired by the legendary designer Luigi Colani, this estate was finished in 2009. There's about 10,700-square-feet of living space that includes a spherical kitchen for which the appliances (even the spherical ones) were designed by Sheer and flown in from Italy. More than 1,230 square feet of 24-carat gold (the gold weighed 60 pounds and at the time cost more than $1 million) was used in the swimming pools and house. There are golden fixtures and crystal chandeliers. Specialists and security experts from Austria, Germany and Switzerland were brought in for the installations. Everything in the house runs by remote control -- appliances, curtains, the closed circuit TV, and security systems.
It's a home full of gadgets, glitter and gizmos. But of the highest quality and expense. The estate is a series of circular structures, connected by terraces, water features and wrapped in a package where the exterior is bright orange. There's an eclectic mix of statues, blue marble columns with gilded plinths, genuine gold mosaic in the bath, and a pool that abuts directly to the exterior of the house. The exclusive Colani door, as well as the doors to the five other entrances, are all adorned with genuine Swarovski crystals artistically inset into the panel so that they sparkle from both the outside and inside the house. The exacting renovation of the villa was followed closely by the media in Mallorca and Germany. And the crowning media moment came when Colani himself visited to witness the installation of the Colani entrance door. He apparently was pleased.
A glass outdoor elevator, two sizeable pool terraces, on above the other, with unequalled views, and a self-contained staff apartment, as well as several larger rooms, a security room and a wine cellar and an spacious exclusive garage with outdoor parking for 7 cars complete the offering. The owner has realized with his creation of “Villa Colani” his vision for an exclusive property where “only the best is good enough”.
