This beautiful country house is located just a few minutes from the charming village of Santa Gertrudis. It is a house to experience it, to live it, the sensations here are very different from those of a conventional house, and it is difficult to describe in words… it is a house to feel it and enjoy it, also knowing that we contribute significantly to the more than ever necessary conservation of our planet. In addition to its aesthetic and harmonious beauty, integrated into the Ibizan countryside, the most notorious thing about this place is the privilege of being a 0 emissions house, certified with the highest Passivhaus category, which is Premium, which means that it is one of the most efficient homes in the world. Built in 2016, it has the honour of being the fifth Passivhaus in the world to achieve the prestigious certification. Completely disconnected from the electricity and water grid, it has a first-class photovoltaic installation that makes it self-sufficient (provided that the parameters and consumption for which it is designed are met), and a water borehole, which allows you to live without paying water or electricity bills. Built with 100% healthy and sustainable materials, which include both the construction materials of the house and all the interior equipment and furnishings, including paint, wiring, flooring… everything in this house breathes health, well-being and sustainability. The ventilation system typical of passive houses guarantees pure, clean air, free of humidity, which oxygenates us throughout the day and night, and even helps us to sleep better. The rainwater collection system and grey water recycling system for irrigation of fruit trees, together with a perforated well with professional flow and a sophisticated system of de-calcification and ozonation, provide top quality water for consumption. With 210m² constructed plus 110m² of pergola terrace, it is distributed in a huge open plan living/dining room, sharing space with a wonderful and spacious kitchen with island and views to the countryside, fully equipped. It also has a large furnished pergola terrace which can be enjoyed all year round, with electric awnings to shelter from the sun. Outside, the 15,000m² of fenced land flows through the impeccably restored old stone terraces, including an agricultural project with numerous avocado, citrus and fruit trees of all kinds, a large organic vegetable garden with automatic irrigation, and an irrigation pond which doubles as a natural swimming pool, with a system of aquatic plants for cleaning. The native hens roam freely in an area fitted out for their comfort, which includes a designer wooden hen house, in keeping with the lines and materials of the house. In the upper part of the grounds, a dreamlike wooden playground awaits us, as well as a very complete outdoor gymnasium. 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, it is a way of life and a way of being in the world.
