This villa is set in an enviable location surrounded by natural beauty over-looking the Alvor lagoon and ocean, making this the most idyllic spot to own a property for anyone looking for peace and tranquility, breath-taking scenery and harmony with nature.
Through the gated entrance a long driveway leads to an ample parking area and the house. There is a small paddock along the side of drive perfect for keeping a horse or animals.
Inside is a bright entrance hall opening to a spacious living room with patio doors on to a covered wrap-around terrace from which to enjoy the amazing views. The lounge has a lovely wood burning fireplace for the winter nights. Adjoining is the dining area which has direct access to the fully fitted kitchen, utility area and large walk-in larder/storage room. From here you join back to the hallway where there is an exterior door leading to another terrace perfect for al fresco dining.
Off to the east side of the house there are two large bedrooms, both with built in wardrobes. One has its own en-suite shower room, whilst the other bedroom has an adjacent large bathroom with corner bath and overhead shower.
Upstairs a small hall leads to the master bedroom with built in wardrobes and an en-suite bathroom with bath and overhead shower.
From the upstairs hall there is access to a generous roof terrace boasting unobstructed views of the lagoon and the sea beyond. There was approval for a 4th bedroom to be built on this terrace, however permission has lapsed so would need to be resubmitted to the local council.
The house benefits from air conditioning throughout and top-quality wood-effect tilt & turn double glazed windows with fly screens as well as aluminium shutters. Water is from a borehole with an osmosis filter system. There are solar panels to heat the water.
Outside the large 10 x 5m swimming pool is surrounded by ample terraced areas and beautiful gardens. There's a wonderful covered terrace to make the most of the beautiful summer days by the pool. To the back of the house is a large garden shed, and a covered area for storage.
The garden has a variety of mature trees including olive, almond and fig and there is a beautiful pond.
This property would suit someone looking for peace and tranquility in beautiful, un-spoilt surroundings. There are other properties in the vicinity, but each with ample land to give plenty of privacy. This is an environmentally protected area and boasts a bird sanctuary of international renown. There is a small beach in the lagoon only 2kms away and all amenities can be found in Mexilhoeira Grande, a traditional Portuguese village less than a 5 minute drive away (1.5km).
