This 2 storey villa with views over the countryside sits just outside of the village of Figueira, on the edge of a small development and within half an hours walk of 2 great beaches (Figueira and Furnas). The 500 square metre plot is beautifully landscaped with many trees including orange, lemon, nectarine, lime, pink grapefruit and cork oak. The property can be used as either a 4 bedroom house or as a 2 bedroom house with a separate 2 bedroom granny annex upstairs, perfect for those who need a private space for relatives or guests or even to rent out as a separate flat and earn income.
The ground floor is wheelchair accessible. There are a couple of steps by the front gate, leading to the front door, but there's also a side gate with flat access directly from the street, where there's ample parking. The entrance hall leads through a door into the ground floor part of the house, which comprises a lovely bright and sunny living room with a fireplace and patio doors to a little terrace with picture-postcard views over the valley to the sea in the distance. Part of the terrace has been enclosed with windows to make a little study/ computer room. The kitchen has a rear door out to the side garden with a wonderful brick-built BBQ and patio, shaded by a pergola covered with Moscatel grape vines. There is a small greenhouse here and room for a small pool (subject to planning permission). Back inside there are 2 bedrooms (the 2nd bedroom is currently being used as a separate dining room) and a spacious bathroom. The main bedroom has a door leading out to the beautiful rear garden, which is fully fenced and gated. It is very sheltered and has a wonderful 2 tiered water feature and a large patio with pergola. Surrounded by beautiful flowers and palms, it's the perfect spot for enjoying the sunshine all year round.
The accommodation on the first floor follows the same layout as that of the ground floor and is accessed via stairs from the entrance hall. The property currently has 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 kitchens and 2 living rooms. If it's to be used as one large, spacious house, then the second kitchen could become a study and the 2nd living room could become a dining room. Quality double glazed tilt & turn windows have been fitted throughout and the property benefits from air-conditioning. There is also gas central heating downstairs and electric heating upstairs. The property has had all the plumbing and electrics renewed and has internet and satellite TV.
The village of Figueira has a wonderful local restaurant, plus several cafes and a mini-market. The large supermarket at Budens is just a 3 minute drive away and the pretty fishing village of Salema is only a 5 minute drive away. Santo Antonio Golf & Spa is just a couple of minutes down the road also. All the beautiful countryside right on the doorstep of this property falls within the highly protected Costa Vincentina Natural Park, which is great for hiking, cycling and horse riding.
This cosy homely property can be used and divided to suit your individual needs and is an affordable villa within the beautiful Natural Park of the Western Algarve.
