This 4 bedroom property with impressive pool and entertainment area is just a short 1km walk from the medieval town of Silves and has gorgeous views to the Monchique mountains. It would make a lovely family home and also has great business potential. Set in a fenced plot of over 5000m2 the house is surrounded by mature trees and manicured lawns and is quite private.
Entry is through automatic gates and a traditional cobblestone driveway with lighting leads to the house and parking. A covered porch leads to the front door and hallway. Off the hallway is a spacious lounge / dining room with windows on three sides letting in lots of light and sliding doors to an enclosed porch, currently used as an office. This opens to a covered terrace with traditional wood beam and cane ceiling overlooking the pool with space for relaxing and dining al-fresco. From the living room and terrace you can enjoy far-reaching views across the countryside to the Monchique mountains. The lounge has a wood-burner to keep it cosy as well as electric radiators.
Adjacent to the living room is a well-equipped kitchen with plenty of built-in cupboards and drawers, a gas hob and oven, farm-style sink and under-counter lighting. Adjacent is a utility room with guest cloakroom and pantry.
Also on this level are two bedrooms each with built-in wardrobes, private bathrooms and air-conditioning. One has a window overlooking the garden and an en-suite bathroom with bathtub and shower. The second bedroom also has a window overlooking the gardens and drive and has an en-suite shower room.
Downstairs are two more bedrooms and a comfortable living area. This can be accessed via internal stairs or locked off and used independently either as a self-contained 2-bedroom apartment, or as one en-suite bedroom and one 1-bedroom apartment. The third bedroom has a private walled patio with separate entrance and an en-suite bathroom. The fourth bedroom has an adjacent bathroom with walk-in shower and there is a living room and kitchenette with pretty arched windows overlooking the gardens, jacuzzi and pool.
The house is built for entertaining with beautiful gardens surrounding a fantastic pool area. The pool is L-shaped with a shallow children's end and steps into the main pool which is 10m long and deep enough for diving. Next to the pool is a well-equipped bar and kitchen, as well as a jacuzzi hot tub and lots of paved areas for sun-loungers. Steps lead to a raised patio from which to enjoy the views. For added convenience there is an outdoor shower as well as a guest cloakroom next to the bar/kitchen area.
Across the lawns is a separate fenced area which is used for extra accommodation with two tipi's, a shower room and outdoor kitchen. Being fenced this area would also make a great vegetable garden. There is an orchard with lemon, orange and fig trees, and there are olive trees throughout the property.
Exterior steps lead to a roof terrace with pretty views over the gardens and surroundings. On the roof terrace are solar panels for hot water and a satellite dish. There is mains water supply as well as a borehole, and the garden is irrigated.
The property is just a 15 minute walk from the medieval town of Silves with its castle, restaurants, bars, shops and other amenities. It is a 9 minute walk to the train station and Pestana's Silves golf course is only 2km away. It is 12km or a 15 minute drive to the nearest beach at Carvoeiro and the Nobel International School is only 10km. Faro airport is 40 minutes by car.
