Hark back about 6 months and you’ll remember Tom Hiddleston, Hugh Laurie and The Night Manager – the incredible miniseries that more than 6 million people tuned into watch. And while there are moments in the series that are hard to forget, perhaps the most stand-out feature was Robert Roper’s incredible and elegant Mallorcan home. Incase you’re one of the rare few who hasn’t Googled the palatial building to get a closer look, you’ll be pleased to know that this wasn’t a green screen – this home genuinely exists – and it’s not alone.
La Fortaleza (Roper’s fictional home), isn’t actually on the market but there’s intel that the sprawling home and estate are worth a cool £30million and are owned by the co-treasurer of the Conservative party, Lord Lupton. There are also rumours that, as a mandatory condition of ownership, the home will be open for a couple of public viewings a year.
Mallorca fell out of favour in the property market for a couple of years, and was overtaken by the likes of Ibiza and St Tropez. But it’s finally back where it should be, with sales this summer up 38% on last year mainly, it’s been said, because of the popularity of The Night Manager. So, without further ado, here’s a look at some of the most incredible Mallorcan properties on the market right now.
