This sunny and spacious home is situated near the small village of Odelouca in a peaceful valley with pretty views of the surrounding hills.
Steps lead up from the garage and parking area to a pretty covered terrace and front entrance. From the entrance hall a door leads to the generous living room with wood-burning stove for winter evenings. Large windows look out south over the hills and seasonal stream. The dining area has a hatch to the adjacent kitchen with wood cabinetry and marble countertops, and space for a table and chairs for casual dining. A door leads to the garden with steps down to the garage.
A short corridor leads to the guest cloakroom and closet for coats, and on to an en-suite bedroom with east-facing window to let in the morning sun and pretty views across the valley. The en-suite bathroom has a bath with shower over. Opening off the entrance hall is another en-suite bedroom, this one with a window facing west to let in the afternoon sun. The en-suite bathroom also has a bath with shower over.
A door from the entrance hall separates the other 3 bedrooms and family bathroom from the main living space. The family bathroom has a bath with shower over and a generous counter top and cupboards. Two of the bedrooms (one currently used as an office) have windows overlooking the pool, and one looks onto the covered front terrace. All bedrooms except one benefit from built-in wardrobes.
On the west-side of the house is the 4 x 9m swimming pool with paved terrace for sunbathing. Beneath the house is a spacious garage plus workshop.
The windows are single-glazed with insect screens. Hot water is from solar panels and the property has access to a borehole for water which is passed through a filter and softening system before entering the house. There is air-conditioning in most rooms for heating and cooling.
An additional 3ha of land can be purchased surrounding the house.
It is 12km to the medieval town of Silves with daily fruit and veg market, shops, restaurants and cafés. The bus for the Nobel international school collects in the town. Morgado and Silves golf courses are within 20 minute drive, as are the beaches of Alvor, Praia da Rocha and Ferragudo. Faro airport is 50 minutes on the motorway.
