If you are looking for a traditional & stylish Quinta, then this is the one you will certainly fall in love with! A unique property, conveniently located in the country side near Almancil. The property was bought by the present owners in 1994 and they have done a fabulous job restoring the Quinta and bringing it back to its' original glory. Or probably a lot better than the original!
A romantic "caminho" brings us to this wonderful paradise, the house is set in a beautifully landscaped garden, only part of the plot has been landscaped, the rest has been left to nature. A "calçada" drive way brings us to a large parking area in front of the house. From the front door one enters into the original hall, with two rooms on either side. The room to the left is used as a formal dining room, the room to the right is the cozy winter living room, complete with fire place.
The kitchen has maintained its original charm, with the cooking area positioned in the old chimney. All work tops are in solid stone and there are Miele appliances. From the kitchen, double doors lead us into the grand living room with heigh ceilings with wooden beams and cane, the original way to make a roof in the Algarve. All windows and shutters are made of solid wood too. There are shutters on the inside, as well as on the outside of the windows. All floors are in hand made terracotta tiles from Santa Catharina and were made especially for the owners with the design of a flower.
The living room features a beautiful fire place and is very spacious. From here there is access to the summer kitchen, from where there is access to a large covered terrace, with access to two guest bedroom suites, each with bathroom and dressing room en suite. The grand mastersuite has its own entrance with dressing area, a large bathroom with shower and bath and a private terrace.
The swimming pool (8x9m) is located on the other side of the house, with a lovely covered terrace, great for al-fresco dining. From here the kitchen is easily accessed. The laundry, and the guest wc are located on this side too. As well as a mezzanine, which could be used as the fourth bedroom.
There is under floor heating throughout the property and there is air conditioning too.
A magnificent and enchanting property! Simple and sophisticated at the same time. A rare find, one of a kind!
