This private attractive 4-bedroom villa with adjoining guest accommodation is walking distance from the unspoilt traditional village of Porches and the International school, yet in peaceful countryside. This traditional farmhouse has been completely restored, keeping its older charm but with a more modern interior.
From the gated entrance a traditional cobblestone (calçada) driveway leads to the large wooden front doors and attractive entrance area. Off the entrance hall is a large lounge which is divided into two comfortable seating areas, one with an ornate wood-burning fireplace.
The fully fitted modern kitchen has a central preparation island, granite worktops, built-in appliances and direct access to the pool and BBQ area for easy entertaining.
Adjoining the kitchen is a sunken dining room with plenty of space for family get-togethers. Also on this floor is a double bedroom with en-suite bathroom.
The first floor has 3 more bedrooms, all en-suite. The master bedroom boasts an en-suite bathroom with jetted tub and double vanity, a sauna and its own large terrace with steps leading to an enormous roof terrace from which to enjoy stunning views across the countryside towards the coast. There is planning permission to extend the house by building in the roof-terrace level.
Overlooking the heated salt-water pool and adjoining the main house are two self-contained apartments each with a small kitchen, bedroom and sitting area.
The pool-side terrace has plenty of shady and secluded seating and dining areas, a covered terrace with jacuzzi, outdoor shower and a BBQ area, making it a great space for entertaining.
The house is located at the top of the plot and looks down over attractive gardens, an impressive lake with Koi carp, children's play area and the tennis court.
The quinta has its own borehole, alarm and CCTV system, solar panels for hot water, automatic gates and is fully air conditioned. The heated pool has an electric cover. There is a 2 car garage and plenty of parking. Adjacent to the guest annex is a separate utility room with plenty of space for storage.
Although in idyllic countryside it is walking distance to the International school, the pretty village of Porches, and within a few minutes drive of golf courses and beautiful award-winning beaches.
This has good investment potential as an exclusive hotel as there is permission to increase the current build size. In addition, the large plot of land opposite the property can also be added to the purchase. Alternatively this would make a fabulous equestrian property.
