Marking the start of #NewHomesWeek today, Marc Pritchard, Sales & Marketing Director at leading housebuilder Taylor Wimpey España highlights his top 5 reasons why choosing a new build property in Spain is a great option:

 

1)      The right paperwork – It can be complicated when it comes to the purchase paperwork, especially when looking to move to Spain. All of our new build homes are sold with final building certification and guaranteed to have complied fully with all relevant planning permissions. This ensures that life is made a lot easier and Taylor Wimpey España will give you all the relevant information needed to move abroad.

2)      Guarantees – As in the UK, all Taylor Wimpey España new build homes comes with a 10 year structural guarantee to ensure that your new home is built to the highest standard.

3)      New fixtures & fittings – With a new build, you can guarantee that all the fittings and fixtures will be brand new. No leaking taps, no broken door handles, no loose light fittings. As part of the UK’s largest home builder, Taylor Wimpey España properties can be trusted to be fitted to the very highest standard.

4)      24/7 assistance – Most new build properties are built as part of a community meaning that the developer will be on hand to help with any issues. Taylor Wimpey España offers a 24 hour help-line for emergencies and are committed to dealing with all other requests within 15 days. Another consideration is the language barrier, all communication with Taylor Wimpey España will be to a high standard of English.

5)      Recourse – If you move in and there are snagging issues or any questions at all regarding your home, Taylor Wimpey España are on hand to fix them. You won’t be left high and dry once you’ve got the keys.

Every year countries across the world eagerly await the awarding of Blue Flags to their beaches and marinas.

The Blue Flag is an internationally recognised eco-label that identifies a beach as clean, safe and committed to sustainability, based on strict criteria addressing water quality, environmental education and information, environmental management, and safety and other services.

This year, Spain has once more been awarded more Blue Flags than any other country in the world – 684 in total.

Spain values its reputation as having the world’s best beaches and has topped the league table from the Foundation for Environmental Education (the body that awards the Blue Flags) since it was first launched in 1987.

The Communidad Valencia received the most Blue Flags in Spain with 129, followed by Galicia with 133 and Cataluna with 95 – the same trend as in 2016.

“It is wonderful to once again see the Comunidad Valencia receive the most awards in Spain with 129 Blue Flags. Alicante and its award-winning beaches is a hotspot for holiday makers and those looking to buy a holiday home in Spain.

“Punta Prima beach, just south of Alicante, with its fine sandy beaches and clean waters has for example been awarded a Blue Flag for 2017 and our stunning La Recoleta III and Panorama Mar developments have the ideal frontline location to enjoy its sea, sand and sunshine.”

Taylor Wimpey España‘s most recent data reveals that German buyers are returning to Spain at an increasing rate.

Overall, total sales by German buyers in 2016 increased by 40% compared to the previous year.

Geographically, the hotspot for German buyers was the Balearic Isle of Mallorca where 93% of all sales were completed.

“We definitely experienced a significant increase in enquiries and indeed sales from German buyers in 2016. Mallorca has always been a popular holiday destination with German tourists and as the island’s property market expands in order to accommodate the growing demand from prospective holiday home owners, it is German buyers who are leading the sales.”

Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director, Taylor Wimpey España

In response to this rising demand, Taylor Wimpey España has launched a brand-new free phone helpline for those residing in Germany. Prospective buyers will be able to call 0800 511 1551 to discuss the property options available to them.

With 300 days of sunshine every year, the advantages of the Mallorcan coastline being protected from overdevelopment and over 20 golf courses to enjoy, it is no wonder the German’s are rushing to buy a holiday home.

Two developments which have caught both the attention of German buyers and indeed the Brits are Cala Vinyes Hills and Serenity, both located in the south west of the island.

The new  Cala Vinyes Hills residential complex offers 15 exclusive and spacious 3 bedroom apartments and duplexes within a modern, gated community comprised of 5 independent buildings. From €380,000 +VAT residents will benefit from private terraces, a communal swimming pool with landscaped gardens and private parking.

Cala Vinyes Hills is located in the prestigious area of Cala Vinyes, just 15 minutes from the island’s vibrant capital city, Palma. The exclusive marinas Puerto Portals and Port Adriano are also close by, providing a wide variety of elegant bars and restaurants such as the most exclusive designer stores.

Less than a 30-minute drive from Palma’s international airport, Serenity is located next to the Santa Ponsa II Golf Club in Nova Santa Ponsa, one of the most exclusive and highly sought-after areas on the island. This new residential complex offers beautiful 3 bedroom homes from apartments to top floor penthouses.

All units benefit from private terraces, with those on the ground floor enjoying spacious garden areas which are also private. From €545,000 +VAT for an apartment and €790,000 +VAT for a penthouse, residents will enjoy the private use of two swimming pools, surrounded by a solarium area, and luscious communal gardens.

It’s not a property’s location or indeed what it looks like from the outside, interior design is just as vital when choosing a perfect holiday home abroad to relax in style.

Ana Garcia Maldonado is leading Spanish developer  Taylor Wimpey España‘s highly experienced head of interior design who has worked independently with developers for almost 15 years.

Forget dated wicker furniture and terracotta colour palettes, the design of Taylor Wimpey España’s abodes are very much on trend and well thought out. Ana frequently attends all furniture and decoration fairs to maintain a creative flow of ideas and to keep up to date with Spanish design.

Working alongside Taylor Wimpey España’s head architect, Pablo Live Sanchez and also her husband, Ana shares her trade secrets and what is it about interior design that she enjoys so much:

What is your vision for the interior design of Taylor Wimpey España homes?

In all Taylor Wimpey España homes the first premise is quality, comfort, and an aesthetic mix of modernity and elegance that pleases a wide range of buyers. Our goal through decorating is to offer not a house, but a home. 

What influences you in your design choices?

I try to follow and respect the line drawn by the Architecture Studio, which since the landmark Avalon development on the Costa del Sol, has been modern lines without leaving aside comfort and warmth of a home. When choosing colours and furniture, we usually take into account factors such as the name, location and even logo of the development, as each of them have their own identity.

What are the key materials / pieces of furniture / brands / colour palettes that you are using for Taylor Wimpey España interiors at the moment?

We always look for functional furniture with light lines that does not detract from the spacious feel of each property. We like wood or matte finishes, natural tones and textures such as linen and cotton. For the walls we prefer a large canvases or mirrors, wallpapers with personality but still discreet, and playing around with the same colour tones in a single environment. We use an endless number of national and international brands in furniture, fabrics, papers, carpets, lighting, and choose brand depending on the budget we are allocated.

What should owners avoid interiors wise when furnishing their holiday homes?

From experience I know that many clients give much more importance to furnishing the terrace than to the rest of the house, without taking into account the inclement weather. So my only advice is to equip the house with the same degree of comfort on the inside as the outside.

Finally, how do you find working so closely with your husband on the architectural side? 

It is a true privilege. We help and complement each other whilst enjoying our work. Can you ask for more?!
