This very spacious villa occupies a large corner plot on a small residential urbanisation on the edge of the village of Almadena, which is very close to the popular beach resorts of Praia da Luz and Burgau. The property boasts delightful gardens surrounding the entire villa with double gates to the ample private parking and covered car port.
Inside, the large entrance hall has a small guest bathroom with shower, plus ample storage areas. Double doors open to the very spacious living room, which looks out to the pool terrace. There's a lovely feature fireplace for winter evenings. Adjacent to the living room is a formal dining room, again with access to the outdoor seating and entertainment areas on the pool-side terrace. The fully-fitted kitchen benefits from a breakfast area and a large walk-in pantry, plus beautiful red African granite work-tops. There is one large bedroom downstairs, with en-suite bathroom and twin-aspect patio doors opening on to the pool terrace.
Upstairs there are a further 2 large bedrooms, both with en-suite bathrooms. The master suite has 2 balconies - 1 east-facing and the second south-facing and large enough to accommodate sun loungers. The en-suite bathroom has a large corner bath, a separate shower and twin sinks. The second bedroom suite has a private west-facing balcony and an en-suite shower room. All bedrooms have fitted wardrobes.
The villa features gas central heating, including heated towel rails in the bathrooms, ceiling fans and double glazed windows with shutters and fly-screens.
Outside, the large pool (11m x 5.5m) benefits from solar heating and a pool cover. There's a wonderful BBQ area beside the pool and an ample terrace for entertaining (south-facing). There is a toilet and shower, plus a utility room housing the washing machine and the boilers (solar hot water plus gas). There are 2 sheds (ideal as a little workshop or for hobbies) as well as the pump room. From the main plot, steps lead down to the delightful fruit garden with pergola - the perfect spot for a hammock and a lazy afternoon nap in the shade. The orchard has many fruit trees including mulberry, apple, pomegranate, plum, mango, peach, cherry, apricot, pear, pineapple guava, orange, lemon and olive. There's automatic irrigation throughout the whole garden.
The centre of the village is just a short stroll away and there are 2 mini-markets, a social club and a number of cafés/ restaurants. Beautiful countryside surrounds the village, with the Costa Vincentina Natural Park and the National Forrest at Barao both close by. Several golf courses are within a 10 minute drive, as are numerous fantastic beaches. This property would make a lovely family home and would also rent well.
