This magnificent manor house, built in 1938, has been completely renovated to high standards, creating an immaculate family home. Spread over three floors, this majestic property is in an elevated position overlooking the idyllic spa town of Caldas de Monchique.
The front door opens to a grand entrance hall with cosy seating area, an open wood burning fireplace and recessed lighting. Patio doors lead from the hallway to a large terrace offering views over Caldas de Monchique. The three en-suite bedrooms are on this level with lovely views across the gardens and town with one bedroom having patio doors opening onto a spacious sun-drenched terrace. Two of the bedrooms offer en-suite shower rooms and one has an en-suite with a bath and separate shower. All boast built in wardrobes, recessed lighting and ceiling fans. Also on this level is a guest cloakroom and a laundry/utility room.
A sweeping staircase leads down to the main living area where there is a double height galleried living room with an open wood-burning fireplace, a bar area, cinema/entertainment area and a second guest cloakroom. Two sets of patio doors lead to a large covered terrace perfect for alfresco dining, offering views to the pool and sub tropical gardens.
The brand new fully fitted kitchen has a built in oven, hob and extractor and boasts a central island with breakfast bar, a range cooker and marble worktops. This opens to the adjacent dining area and also provides exterior access to a shady covered terrace - perfect for entertaining.
From the entertainment level, stairs lead down to a 2 bedroom self-contained apartment with separate fitted kitchen, living area and shower room. A door opening to the apartment's lounge area provides its own private entrance as well as direct access to the swimming pool and terraces.
The walled gardens offer complete privacy. Terraced over 4 levels, the property is surrounded by mature trees and lush gardens with a variety of established fruit trees including avocado, orange, lemon, nespera, fig and tangerine. The large 10 x 7m octagonal swimming pool is the perfect place to cool off and there are many areas to relax and enjoy all this property offers. With a beautiful pond, lush lawn area, vegetable patch and paved terraces shaded by mature trees, this truly is a unique and special place.
The property also boasts a large attic for storage, a separate double garage with electric door and outside space to park two cars. There is mains water direct from the natural spring of Caldas de Monchique, solar panels for hot water, and thermal double-glazed Georgian style windows with antique-style internal aluminium shutters and roll down mosquito nets.
This unique property would make a superb family home, an excellent boutique B&B or retreat with owners accommodation.
Situated in the countryside yet close to amenities there is a restaurant within walking distance. Monchique is only 5km with restaurants, cafes, supermarkets and shops, it is a 20 minute drive to Portimão and a 25 minute drive to the closest beach. The closest golf course is 25 minutes away and Faro airport is a 60 minute drive. It really is an escape from the stress of everyday life.
