COP27 is in full swing, with global leaders seeking the ever more urgent need to effectively tackle the challenge of climate change. Running until 18th November, the event is also serving to focus the minds of businesses around the world on how to operate more sustainably.
In the property sector, leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España is demonstrating how sustainability and desirability can go hand-in-hand when it comes to second homes. The firm’s properties include a range of features that are combining to deliver ‘A’ ratings for their energy performance. Features include:
- Insulated walls and roofs
- Double glazed windows with thermal break
- LED lighting
- Solar panels
- Energy-saving appliances
- Light-saving systems in communal areas
- Drip irrigation systems
- Replanting trees
- Installations for electric vehicles
At the same time, the properties deliver all the elements that a family could wish for when it comes to purchasing a home in which to make happy holiday memories.
Bella Beach in Denia, Alicante for example, is home to 62 two- and three-bedroom apartments with delightful sea views. Communal areas include pools for adults and children and gardens that provide beautiful surroundings in which to relax. Penthouse apartments have a private solarium terrace, while all homes have spacious terraces that blend into their living rooms thanks to the large windows. Prices start from €250,000 (plus VAT).
Over in Campos, Mallorca, meanwhile, holiday home buyers with €725,000 (plus VAT) to spend can find A-rated properties at Las Villas de Dalt de Sa Rapita. Each contemporary, minimalist style detached villa provides three double bedrooms and three bathrooms, fitted kitchen and laundry room, a living and dining room, large terraces and a pretty garden with private swimming pool. All the properties face south, allowing light to bathe every corner of the home and affording a marvellous sensation of spaciousness.
Finally, for sustainably minded holiday home owners seeking properties on the Costa del Sol, there is Almazara Hills. Located in the stunning natural landscape of Istán, Marbella, the apartments deliver unrestricted views south-east towards Marbella Bay and Gibraltar. The building’s rustic appearance features natural materials that blend perfectly with the local setting. Apartments with two and three bedrooms and penthouses with a solarium come with large terraces, communal pool and gardens with autochthonous plants. Prices start from €440,000 (plus VAT).
