SOLD This older style, but well kept, five bedroom villa is located on a very large plot between the luxury resorts of Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo, with Ancão beach at your doorstep and very close to the golf courses of Vale do Lobo and Quinta do Lago.
An impressive drive way leads up to the property, with a two car carport and a double garage. On ground level there is an entrance hall with feature ceiling, artistically painted with a blue sky and some white clouds. There is also a guest cloak room accessed from the entrance hall. The L-shaped living & dining room is spacious and there is a woodburning fire place and a separate office/tv-room adjacent to the living room. From the office/tv-room there is access to a bathroom, which also serves as the bathroom for the pool terrace and can be accessed from outside.
There is a large dining area, and a closed fully fitted kitchen with a separate laundry. There is also a large covered terrace/winter garden and a very large BBQ area to the south-southeast side of the house. There are two bedrooms on the ground level, sharing one, renovated, bathroom. On the first floor there are a further three good sized bedrooms, all with their own private bathroom and access to a terrace.
The house is set in a large garden, mainly laid to lawn with some pine & fruit trees. There is water from a bore hole, to keep the costs for irrigation controlled.
The house is ready to move into, although would benefit from updating. This generous and unique plot would also be great to develop and build a brand new villa. The property is located within the green belt of the Ria Formosa nature reserve, which means that there won't be any new building licenses granted, but one can always take down and rebuild a villa within the footprint of the old house. Currently there are only about 10 villas along this road, and this is all which will be allowed, so that the area will remain of low density.
The other great advantage over a property within the resorts is, that the running costs are a lot lower, since there is no condominium fee to be paid and the plotsize is more than twice the size of an average plot in Quinta do Lago.
A great opportunity to buy a property in a privileged area, close to the beach and amenities, offering a maximum of privacy.
