THE Balearics currently lays claim to the third most expensive property up for sale in Spain, housing market watchdog facilisimo.com said yesterday.
The country home, situated in the municipality of Pollensa, comprises 1'200 square metres of constructed property, with seven en suite bedrooms, a further seven individual bathrooms, a laundry and a separate apartment for domestic staff.
If the building itself is spectacular, the land surrounding it is no less panoramic. It embraces 120'000 square metres of olive groves and holm-oak woods, all sweeping down to the Mediterranean. It is up for sale for a mere 12 million euros.
