This is an isolated single-family villa located in the countryside just a few minutes’ drive to the trendy village of Santa Gertrudis. This is a house to experience, to live in; the sensations here are very different from those of a conventional home, difficult to describe it in words… it is a house to feel and enjoy, knowing also that we contribute significantly to the more than ever necessary conservation of our planet. In addition to its aesthetic and harmonic beauty, integrated into the Ibizan countryside, the most notable privilege is being in a 0 emissions house, certified with the highest Passivhaus category, which is Premium, meaning it is one of the most efficient homes in the world. Built in 2016, it has the honour of being the fifth building in the world to achieve the prestigious certification. Completely disconnected from the electricity and water network, it has a first-rate photovoltaic installation that makes it self-sufficient, and a water hole that allows you to live without paying water or electricity bills. Built with 100 percent healthy and sustainable materials, which include both the construction materials of the house, as well as all the interior equipment and furniture, including paintings, wiring, flooring… everything in this house breathes health, well-being and sustainability. The ventilation system of passive houses guarantees pure and clean air, free of humidity, which oxygenates us throughout the day and night, and even helps us sleep better. The rainwater collection system, and gray water recycling for the irrigation of fruit trees, joins a perforated system with a professional flow and a sophisticated decalcification and ozone system that provides top quality water for consumption. With 210m² built plus 110m² of pergola terrace, it is distributed in a huge open plan living room, which shares space with a wonderful and spacious kitchen with island and views of the countryside, fully equipped. It also has a large furnished terrace pergola that can be enjoyed all year round, with electric awnings to protect you from the sun. Outside, its 15.000m² fenced land flows through impeccably restored old stone terraces, including an agricultural project with numerous avocado, citrus and fruit trees of all kinds, a large organic garden with automatic irrigation, and a pond for the irrigation that acts as a natural pool, with a whole system of aquatic plants and fish for cleaning. The native chickens roam freely in an area set up for their comfort, which includes a designer wooden chicken coop, in keeping with the lines and materials of the house. At the top of the plot, a dreamy wooden playground awaits us, and a very complete outdoor gym. Finally, it has two large technical rooms that house the photovoltaic installation, the automatic irrigation system, the ozone and water softening system, and a storage room for tools and bicycles. More than a home, this is a way of life and of being in the world.
