This modern linked villa is situated in a delightful little cul-de-sac in the Albardeira area of Lagos, very close to the beautiful Meia Praia beach and just a short stroll from Lagos Marina. The property is unique in that it can be used as a 3 bedroom house or as 2 apartments, so it is possible to live downstairs and rent-out the first floor as a one bedroom apartment, which is what the current owner does. The upper floor has an official rental license (Alojamento Local) and generates a good income for the owner.
The ground floor comprises a cosy lounge with patio doors opening on to the front terrace with sea views, a family bathroom, a spacious double bedroom with fitted wardrobes, a fully-fitted kitchen and a pantry/ store room under the stairs. There's a further spacious terrace to the rear of the property with a beautiful mature lemon tree providing a shady area to dine under. There is also an extra room off the living room which can be used as a second bedroom or office, or could easily be converted into a garage if private parking is required. The ground floor can be accessed via its own private entrance if the property is being used as 2 apartments.
The upper floor is accessed via the main entrance with a connecting door in the entrance hall to the ground floor accommodation. Stairs lead to a bright and spacious living room, a kitchen fitted with oak units, a spacious double bedroom with fitted wardrobes and an adjacent bathroom. There’s a wonderful covered terrace off the living room, ideal for dining outside, wrapping around to the front balcony which has sea views. There’s a small balcony off the kitchen with a spiral staircase leading to a very large private roof terrace perfect for sun-bathing, again with sea views.
If you want to use the property as one house, obviously one of the kitchens could be converted into a further bedroom or study. At the end of the cul-de-sac is a large communal pool that you can opt to pay into if you wish to use it (€250 per house for the summer season - optional). There are no condominium fees for this property.
This is a perfect property for anyone wanting to be close to all the amenities that Lagos has to offer, yet in a quiet neighbourhood. Half the properties in the street are lived in permanently and half are holiday-homes, so it's a nice mixture. It is especially suited to anyone looking for a property that can be split into 2 units, either to generate a rental income or to accommodate guests or relatives in a separate part of the house.
