The villa is well maintained inside and out, and has a traditional Portuguese feel whilst benefitting from all modern conveniences and comforts such as air conditioning, central heating, heating panels, solar water heating, plus mains and borehole water. Accommodation is set over one storey, with just the Apartment suite on the first floor accessed by an outdoor staircase.
Currently used as a permanent residence, this wonderful home would also be perfect as a holiday rental property.
The villa is entered through majestic solid wood double doors into a large hall area which has a guest WC. Through arched double doors from the hallway you enter the 60m2 triple aspect lounge, giving 180 degree views across the garden and to the pool area. There is an attractive Fogo Montanha log fire, and the room also benefits from air conditioning and central heating. The built-in corner bar area with wine rack, wash basin and cabinet space is a bonus!
Two large patio doors lead to the spacious covered terrace, offering that much needed shade in the Summer months. Tiled with Santa Catarina tiles, there is an integral traditional BBQ plus tiled workspace and fitted sink. There’s plenty of room for both an outdoor lounge as well as a gorgeous al-fresco dining area.
Through an arch in the living room is a large dining room with built-in dresser and more views over the garden.
The kitchen is fully fitted and includes granite work surfaces and modern cabinets as well as a fitted dishwasher, gas hob, electric oven and microwave. There is a huge shelved walk-in pantry plus an adjoining utility room which includes two refrigerators and a washing machine. There is a door from the kitchen to the garden and small courtyard area, ideal for drying laundry.
Within the main part of the house there are 4 double bedrooms, all with modern white en-suite facilities. Two rooms have adjoining walk-in wardrobes while the other two have fitted wardrobes. All four rooms have central heating, while the two largest rooms also enjoy air conditioning and share a lovely terrace overlooking the rear garden. All four of the en-suites also have heated towel rails.
The staircase from the kitchen courtyard leads to the self-contained one-bedroom apartment upstairs. With a lounge, kitchen, shower room and double bedroom, it’s ideal for guests or to use as a bolt-hole if the main house is rented. The apartment has lovely views over the gardens and features both a log fireplace and air conditioning.
The fitted kitchen is compact and open-plan, with a small breakfast bar area. It includes all the necessities: a two-ring electric hob with extractor fan, a microwave, fridge and washing machine.
The property is surrounded by over 5000m2 of beautiful landscaped grounds which are fully fenced, with two gated entrances. The garden consists of two plots currently used as one large garden, but these plots can be easily split, having two gated entrances, to make two separate properties, giving the opportunity to build a new villa on the second slightly smaller plot.
The main entrance gate is automatic, and opens onto a large traditional calçada paved driveway offering plenty of space for vehicles. There is also a double garage, one of which houses the oil tank for the central heating.
The pool area is a real feature of the garden, the pool itself is 10m x 5m and is concrete and tiled. The shallow end of the pool has been remodelled to be a wonderful splash-pool area suitable for smaller children or for those who just wish to lounge in the pool – perhaps with a chilled glass of your favourite beverage in hand.
The large surrounding terrace offers plenty of space for sun loungers and parasols. There is also a poolside shower.
The garden has plenty of mature trees offering shady privacy. There are some gravelled areas with a Mediterranean feel, large expanses of lush green lawn to the rear, front and side of the property and also an orchard area currently planted with almond trees. There is a wonderful vegetable patch plus a compost area, and a handy large shed for garden storage. The automatic irrigation is fed by the property’s own borehole.
The surrounding area is tranquil, with the small village of Mexilhoeira Grande and all necessary amenities just a short drive away. Here you will find the quaint old church and fresh fish market, as well as the more modern day large supermarket, pharmacy, bank and of course a selection of cafés and restaurants!
Various golf courses are nearby, and the beaches of Alvor just a 15 minute drive away. Health centres are available in Alvor while the main hospital at Portimão is just 5 minutes by car. With local schools close by, the Porches International school is just 20 minutes away.
This villa is in a superb location, close to all amenities, offers spacious living accommodation throughout, and has been maintained to a good standard.
