This pretty single-storey home is set in a peaceful hamlet between the medieval town of Silves and the market town of São Bartolomeu de Messines and enjoys far-reaching views across the hills.
A traditional calçada (cobblestone) driveway leads past the garden to the parking area and house. A covered porch shades the front door, which opens to an entrance lobby with guest cloakroom and sliding doors onto the pool and entertainment area. The spacious living room is sunny and bright featuring a curved wall with doors to the terrace and barbecue area. For your comfort a fireplace keeps it cosy in winter plus there is air-conditioning to heat and cool. Adjacent is the formal dining room which leads to the well-equipped and recently refurbished kitchen with granite work-tops. A picture window over the sink offers a lovely view over the hills and valley to the north. There is an eye-level oven and built-in microwave, integrated dishwasher, plenty of cupboards, plus space for table and chairs. A door from the kitchen opens to a small covered terrace and drying area.
From the entrance lobby a hallway leads to the 3 bedrooms, all equipped with air-conditioning to heat and cool. The master bedroom has patio doors onto the terrace and views south across the valley, a walk-in dressing area as well as an en-suite bathroom with bath with shower over.

There are fantastic views from nearly every room and, with two of the bedrooms and the living area opening onto a lovely entertainment area, it is easy to enjoy the outdoor lifestyle.
