This lovely renovated home with beautiful country views is in a quiet village walking distance to a restaurant and cafes and just 10 minutes drive from the medieval town of Silves.
The generous living space comprises a large open-plan lounge and dining room with a wall of doors opening to a pretty courtyard and the garden beyond. Adjacent to the living area and well-placed for outside entertaining is a smart new well-equipped kitchen with Silastone worktops, built-in appliances including fridge/freezer, dishwasher, eye-level oven and microwave, and gas hob.
There is a separate cosy television room or den with wood-burning fireplace which connects to the living area with double glass doors. Steps from the den lead to an attic bedroom or office space. There is the potential to open up more of the attic space to create another room or en-suite bathroom.
There are 3 bedrooms downstairs with one currently being used as a gym. The 2nd bedroom has a window overlooking the pool area. The main bedroom has a south-facing window with views of the hills and a spacious en-suite bathroom with bath and walk-in shower. It also benefits from a walk-in wardrobe. The family bathroom has a bath with shower over.
The 5x10m pool is perfect for swimming and surrounded by a generous paved terrace for sun-bathing. There is a built-in barbeque with preparation area to make outdoor entertaining easy. Pathways lead through to the well-established gardens with natural stone retaining walls, shady seating areas and Moorish water feature.
Beyond the garden is an orchard with a wide variety of fruit trees including figs, apricots, avocados, tangerines, oranges, lemons, banana, guava, plums, nespera, pomegranate and almonds. This is completely irrigated using water from the borehole. From the orchard there are lovely views across the valley of the mountains and hills to the north and this is a peaceful spot for relaxing and star-gazing on a summer's evening.
Adjacent to the house is an old barn which is currently used as a garage and workshop, with a mezzanine floor for extra storage space. There is also a carport and store room, as well as a green-house for vegetables and old animal sheds which could be re-built for further storage. Close to the kitchen is a utility room with toilet and space for a shower.
Extras include mostly new double-glazed windows, mosquito screens, pre-installation for solar panels for hot water, new borehole pump and garden irrigation system. Water is from mains system for the house with a borehole for irrigation. The property has been significantly updated including a new roof and is ready to move in and enjoy.
Although in a peaceful location it is just a short walk to a restaurant and local cafes. There is easy access to walking trails and it is not far from a dam. Just 10 minutes to the town of Silves with all amenities, 15 minutes to golf, 25 minutes to beaches and only 45 minutes from Faro airport.
