The drive to this contemporary country home is a very pleasant one: over a tarmac country lane with the typical traditional stone walls -valados- bordering the road. A long calçada drive way takes you up to the house. The plot is walled and there is ample parking space in front of the villa and the house has a large garage too. The location is great, a small cluster of a few similar villas on very large plots. All houses enjoy full privacy, but at the same time you are not isolated, with similar properties relatively close-by. The house is located on a high position making the most of the views.
The house has a practical lay out, with a good flow. The light and bright entrance hall leads to a very light and spacious lounge with exceptionally large windows, that disappear into the walls when open. From the lounge there are two steps down to the dining room which is open plan to the newly fully fitted Bulthaup kitchen. In the dining room and kitchen there is under floor heating and there is gas central heating with radiators in the rest of the house. The whole house has also an integrated air conditioning system, which means that you do not see the air conditioning units, but just some grills, like one sees in hotels. At this side of the house there is also the laundry, the garage and a wine/storage cellar.
The house is all on one level with a few steps here and there, but no first floor. The bedrooms are all located on the other side of the house. Two bedrooms share a bathroom and there are two further bedrooms with their bathrooms en-suite. All bathrooms are exceptionally spacious, all bedrooms also have built-in ward robes. There is also a guest cloak room & a walk-in linen cupboard off the hall. The whole house has terracotta floor tiles, except for the kitchen and dining area, where there are beautiful large dark grey floor tiles with under floor heating.
Around the house there are many different terraces to make the most of outdoor living. The pool is located a little away from the house, the pool has just been totally renewed (May 2020) with beige tiles, which give the water a beautiful emerald colour. The water treatment for the pool & the house is an osmose treatment, which means that the water is gentle on your skin. The pool has a heating system and an electric cover. Around the pool there is also ample terracing with wooden decking.
The garden dresses the house beautifully, with listeria draping over the pergolas, the house also keeps cool in summer. There are various paths through the mature garden, so you can go for a walk in your own garden. There is a green house too to grow your own vegetables.
The house was first finished in 2008, has been fully renovated in 2016 and consequently improved substantially in overal quality. A very comfortable and beautiful home in the Algarve country side. An ideal residential home, but also a beautiful holiday villa. A ready to move into jewel!
