Situated just a short drive from Lagos, this classic, well-built villa covers a huge area of 443 square metres of construction and has plenty of charm. Lovely big curved wooden windows let in lots of light and wonderful covered terraces offer plenty of shady areas in the summer.
Electric gates open to a large parking area accommodating at least 4 cars. The impressive entrance hall features a set of double doors leading through to the main hall. Another set of double patio doors open onto a courtyard-style terrace overlooking the pool area. The entrance hall has a guest toilet and store room and is a central area between two distinct wings to the house.
The westerly wing could be used independently from the main house if desired as it has it's own separate entrance. It comprises a large reception room with patio doors to the courtyard terrace by the pool. This room is currently being used as a gymnasium but could be a living room with enough space to fit a kitchenette if required. There are 3 large bedrooms off this room. The first is a very spacious double with its own private en-suite bathroom and access to a beautiful semi-circular covered terrace; the second is a large double with twin aspect windows and an adjacent shower room that can either be en-suite if required or shared with the third twin bedroom on the opposite side of the hall.
The easterly wing comprises an exceptionally large L-shaped lounge and dining area with a width of 6 metres and lengths of 14 metres for the dining area and 16 metres for the living area. There are 5 sets of patio doors off this room towards the pool area, plus 2 very large windows making this the perfect area for dinner parties and entertaining. The lounge area benefits from an Inglenook fireplace with a large traditional log-burner as a main focal point. The beautiful modern fitted kitchen has amazing country views stretching for miles and has a breakfast area. The kitchen has solid granite counter tops, built-in appliances, including a wine fridge, plus a large adjacent utility/laundry room with external access to a drying area and the log store. The master suite is in this wing and is very impressive, comprising an 8x6 metre bedroom with patio doors to a private terrace, plus a large en-suite bathroom with twin sinks, separate shower and a bath and a very large walk-in closet and dressing room.
The villa benefits from air-conditioning throughout (which also heats). The entrance hall has marble flooring and the living area has ceiling fans. There are roll-down shutters on most windows.
The pool area is both private and sheltered with beautiful, mature gardens surrounding the villa. Facing south, this area gets the sun all day. The pool is 10 metres in length and can be heated through solar or by an electric heat pump and has a manual retractable cover. The landscaped gardens have automatic irrigation.
This property would suit a large/extended family or anyone wanting complete privacy from their guests or even a separate part of the house to rent out or do bed & breakfast from. Set within a peaceful residential area, yet just a short drive into the beautiful historic town of Lagos with it's magnificent beaches.
