This fantastic equestrian property is just 5 minutes from the centre of Carvoeiro village and wonderful local beaches.
The attractive entrance area opens to a large bright hallway which separates the sleeping quarters and the living areas. There are polished wooden floors throughout.
The impressive open plan lounge has a large stone fireplace and plenty of natural light from the sizable windows. Adjoining is the sunny dining room with patio doors to the large covered terrace overlooking the gardens and ponds.
The stylish kitchen boasts glass walls on two sides which can be fully opened to make the most of the fabulous weather, fully integrating the kitchen with the outdoor entertainment area. There is a central island with sink, large induction hob, oven and American fridge freezer. This is all furnished in a tasteful modern but country style.
Both the kitchen and dining room open to a covered terrace where large parties can enjoy al-fresco dining and there is plenty of space for relaxing in the shade.
On the other side of the house are 3 en-suite bedrooms. The master suite has a seating area with fireplace which provides heat to two bedrooms, a stand alone tub set in a glass enclave so that you can star gaze whilst you soak, as well as a bathroom with shower. Adjoining the master suite is the garage which has been converted into a walk-in dressing room but could be used as a 5th bedroom.
On the first floor is a fourth en-suite bedroom with its own large terrace allowing splendid views across the local countryside and the gardens.
The property is fully fenced and has electric gates. The traditional cobblestone driveway leads through the beautifully landscaped gardens to the house. Here there is ample parking space and a large carport for shade.
Local stones have been tastefully used to create terraced gardens and winding pathways and the gardens benefit from elegant water features and interconnected natural ponds with a variety of fish.
There is an attractive outdoor entertainment area with free-form pool, abundant space for sunbathing and an outdoor shower. The adjacent pool room has kitchen facilities to support pool-side entertaining.
An olive tree-lined graveled driveway leads to the equestrian area at the rear of the property. Here there are enclosed paddocks, arenas and a stable block complete with tack room and washing area. There is also a horse walker in a wooden coral.
The almost 20,000m2 grounds have been thoughtfully planned to create a perfect balance between the owners comfortable living areas and the equestrian facilities at the rear. This would make a beautiful home for horse or animal lovers.
The International School is just 10 minutes away and there is a good variety of shops and restaurants within a 5 minute drive, including the pretty village of Carvoeiro. Beaches and golf are also a 5 minute drive and it is just 40 minutes from Faro airport.
