This newly renovated typical Algarvian farmhouse is in a countryside location, a short drive or cycle from the seaside village of Carvoeiro, the main supermarkets and picturesque beaches.
The house has been thoughtfully renovated keeping many of the traditional features but adding modern comforts such as double glazing, a new kitchen and new bathrooms.
The old gated entrance has been walled in allowing a Mediterranean courtyard feel in front of the kitchen, making an ideal space for a barbecue. There is still a door way in the wall for guests or to drop shopping straight into the kitchen.
There is a new gate at the western end of the plot with electricity point for future installation of electric gates. This could create an impressive long driveway to ample parking space at the main house meandering through potentially landscaped gardens or even your own small vineyard.
The spacious open plan lounge and dining room have velux windows in the high traditional ceilings allowing natural light into the room. The lounge area is centred around the wood burning fireplace and there is plenty of space for entertaining with another door leading to the cobblestone courtyard on the north side of the house.
An archway leads to the new fitted kitchen with rustic tiles and its own exterior door to the large south-facing courtyard.
A pretty hallway leads off the living area to a spacious guest bathroom with spa bath. Opposite the bathroom is a large double bedroom with plenty of natural sunlight from the large windows. The hallway continues to a grand master bedroom with a beautiful tiled en-suite bathroom and a walk in shower. The bedroom also has plenty of light from two large windows. This room has lots of space for storage and there is an under-stairs storage area in the hallway as well as an exterior door leading to a pretty cobblestone terrace.
If more rooms are desired the garage and outbuildings could be Incorporated into the main house and a plan for a four bedroom house could be submitted, you could also apply for a swimming pool if required.
There is a large roof terrace with lighting and pre-installation for solar panels with superb views of the Monchique mountains. This makes a great place to relax with a glass of wine and watch the sunset across your property to the west. There is even plenty of room for a roof top Jacuzzi if desired.
The front of the house features a traditionally paved area over the underground cisterna which accumulates rainwater and can be used for irrigation.
There is an old bread/pizza oven in the shade of the trees making up the pretty gardens which surround the cottage. The plot used to have an old and non-productive vineyard which now has been removed. The land could either be landscaped or used to plant a new vineyard or fruit orchard.
Just a few kilometres from award-winning, blue flag beaches, Carvoeiro village and large supermarket, this is a property with enormous potential and provides you with a great opportunity to add your own mark to your house in the sun.
