Charming Town House Near the Historic Town Gate for sale in Silves, Algarve


This gem is situated just outside the historic part of the medieval town of Silves, steps from the ancient town gate, with cafés, restaurants and everything else you need a short walk from your doorstep. This lovely 3 storey town house has a spacious terrace with views onto the old city walls and across the rooftops to the hills. 

The front door opens to a sunny entrance and dining area with polished parquet floors.  A small hall leads to the kitchen at the rear of the property. The kitchen is fully equipped with plenty of wood cabinets, new worktops, gas hob and electric oven.  There is recessed lighting as well as under-counter lights, a window to let in fresh air and natural light and a folding table on one wall.  Also on this level is a family bathroom, with small bath with shower over, toilet, bidet and washbasin.  There is an alcove in the bathroom for a washing machine and a handy storage cupboard under the stairs.

A marble staircase leads up to the middle level where you will find a cosy lounge plus a separate seating area with pull out couch, perfect as a second sleeping space for occasional guests.  This area even has a built-in wardrobe.   A door from the lounge opens to a staircase to the upper level with tall windows letting in lots of light.

The upper level bedroom has a sloping wood beam ceiling and is sunny and bright with windows to two sides.  There is a compact en-suite bathroom with toilet and sink, which is spacious enough to transform into a wet room with shower should you desire.  Glass doors open off the bedroom to a delightful terrace to relax and enjoy the views across the rooftops or watch the storks nesting on top of the old city gates and the nearby protected brick chimney stack.   To keep you comfortable on a hot day there is an automatic 3x3m awning which you can open or close at the touch of a button. There are water and electrical connections on the terrace should you wish to have a summer kitchen.

The property is sold tastefully furnished and would make an excellent lock up and leave holiday home, whilst also being spacious enough for year-round living.
