This charming renovated farmhouse is set in peaceful countryside amidst orange groves with views to the Monchique mountains. Surrounded by trees, the property is completely private.
A pretty covered porch frames the front of the house with a lovely terrace overlooking the gardens and fruit trees. The traditional wooden front door opens to a spacious entrance hall with doors to the bedrooms and living space.
The lounge has windows and patio doors opening to the pool and entertainment area. A wood-burner keeps this space cosy in the cooler months. Next to the lounge is a bright and sunny kitchen with dining area, also with patio doors to the terrace and gardens. The kitchen is well equipped with plenty of cupboards and granite counter-tops.
Opening off the lounge is the master bedroom with patio doors to the pool-side terrace, a window overlooking the gardens and a compact en-suite shower room.
From the hall are two more bedrooms both with windows south to the covered terrace, one with an en-suite shower room. Off the entrance hall is a family bathroom with a bath with shower overhead.
All of the bedrooms benefit from built-in wardrobes, recessed lighting and air-conditioning.
The outside entertainment area is impressive. A beautiful covered terrace (40m2) spans the width of the house with plenty of space for relaxing and lounging in the shade. The 7x4m pool is surrounded by a generous paved area perfect for sun loungers. There is a brick BBQ area conveniently close to the kitchen.
External stairs lead to a roof terrace from which you can enjoy spectacular sunsets.
Off the gravel driveway is a large barn or garage (50m2) with a built-in utility area for the washing machine. With wide double doors this is large enough for a tractor. It would also make a lovely yoga or art studio.
The land is flat with approximately half of the area an orchard of orange, clementine and tangerine trees. There is a good variety of other fruit trees in the gardens including fig, avocado, pomegranate, peach, nectarine, apple, pear, lemon and walnut. The rest of the land is open and, with over 1 hectare and being completely fenced, it is perfect for animals.
Extras include air-conditioning in the lounge and all bedrooms, low energy radiators, retractable fly screens, tilt and turn windows, and solar panels for hot water.
Water is from a borehole with an automatic irrigation system for the garden and orchard. Sewerage is to a septic tank.
The property is centrally located between the market towns of Algoz and Silves, it is just a 20 minute drive to the beautiful beaches at Armação de Pêra. There is an award-winning golf course only 9km away and a cafe within walking distance. Faro airport is a 45 minute drive.
