Beautifully designed and built by the current owners in 1992, the property has been kept highly maintained throughout the years. Being constructed with reinforced concrete sub and super structure, makes the building strong and durable. It has thick walls, double glazing and with the orientation of the living elements, ensures minimal energy to achieve winter warmth and summer cooling.
Large automatic entrance gates with security system, open onto the long traditional calçada driveway, with an adjacent parking area to the side of the villa.
The main entrance opens immediately into a large open-plan hallway and overlooks living area – to the left is the sunken seated “conversation pit” and is set around the enclosed log fireplace. To the right side of the lounge is seating that faces the 2.3m cinema screen, which is remote controlled with a TV/cinema projector. There is a dining area and next to this is additional seating in front of the wall mounted TV. A bonus is a self-contained Bar with a unique mural of tiles. Arabic pillars and arches depict the Moorish history of the Algarve. French doors lead out to the Mediterranean-African styled gardens, the double charcoal BBQ area and the 12 x 5m heated swimming pool including a children’s pool. At the far end of this is a solid seating area with another bespoke and original tiled mural.
The fully fitted kitchen is modern with black granite worktops. A door to the walk-in larder and separate laundry room. There is also a covered courtyard.
Also on this ground floor level is the guest wing, containing two double sized bedrooms and they share a fully equipped bathroom. The garage is currently being used as a fifth bedroom/study. This can easy be converted back to a garage if so desired. There is another guest shower room.
A travertine winding staircase within the Moorish tower leads to the first floor. The master suite has a full dressing area, an en-suite bathroom and has two balconies, one overlooking the countryside and mountains beyond, whilst the other has distant sea views.
The fourth double bedroom has a separate bathroom.
All bedrooms have fitted wardrobes.
Colonial type ceiling fans provide additional summer cooling in all living and bedroom areas.
Featuring within the gardens are an abundance of Palm, Fir, Eucalyptus and Pine trees. A variety of many other delightful mature shrubs adorn the property, giving colour throughout the year. Regular guests are the ‘love birds’ who visit every year.
The 7x5m African thatched Jacuzzi house is perfect for relaxation situated opposite the swimming pool and an 8m curved pergola containing a full-sized table tennis table for anyone feeling a bit more energetic.
Next to the small Pine tree forest is an all-weather surface tennis court, fully enclosed with netting.
And beside this, beached at the bottom, is a children’s favourite and specifically built 6m – two decked Pirate Ship, the ‘Black Pearl’.
Whether to wish to live in this beautiful property permanently, or wanting a business venture, the opportunities are endless.
