Located in the serene unspoiled coastal area of Vale del Rei and Caramujeira, this attractive cottage is nestled on a generous plot of over 3000 square meters, with pretty country views.
Double gates open to a gravel driveway with parking for at least two cars, and a second entrance gate near the pool area provides parking for an additional vehicle. Attractive stone steps with ornate iron handrails lead to the covered porch, solid wood front door and authentic Santa Caterina tiled terraces that surround the property.
On entering the property there is a sense of spaciousness and light. The large entrance hallway is fitted with cupboards and even has space to accommodate a desk for an office nook.
The open plan living room is a few steps down from the entrance hall and is sunny and bright The lounge area is ample and features a wood burning fireplace and from the dining area sliding doors lead to the covered terrace and beautiful outside open courtyard.
Adjacent to the living room is a country farmhouse style kitchen, which has plenty of room for a table for four. The kitchen includes a dishwasher, washing machine and a gas oven with hob. There is also large pantry and door to the covered terrace and open courtyard.
From the entrance hall a corridor leads to the two bedrooms which both open onto an east facing terrace from where you can absorb the morning sun. There are two family bathrooms, one with a bath, separate shower and double vanity, and the other with a shower. It would be simple to make one of the bedrooms en-suite should you wish. Sliding doors from the bedroom corridor open onto the courtyard terrace.
From the terrace, which has a barbecue and space to entertain even the largest group of friends, you can take a pathway down to the lower level and swimming pool. The pool is surrounded by paved terrace, with plenty of room for sunbeds and relaxing, just far enough away from the house not to be disturbed by the sounds from the pool.
Gardens surround the house and are landscaped and low maintenance, with plenty of majestic, mature pine trees exuding a fresh mountain aroma.
