Situated in a tranquil location, just 5 minutes to the stunning beaches of Praia da Marinha, Albandeira and Benagil in the unspoilt countryside of Caramujeira, this charming farmhouse has been thoughtfully and lovingly renovated to a high standard to make the most of the country location and the Algarve outdoor lifestyle.
Perched on a small hill on over a hectare of land and with no immediate neighbours, the secluded and private property is accessible by a gated driveway with gravel parking bays for many cars. The farmhouse itself is located on the highest part of the plot allowing superb views across the valleys and surrounding countryside.
Stone steps lead to the charming kitchen entrance and double glazed doors to a spacious and bright area incorporating the modern fully-fitted kitchen, ample space for a dining table and a superb breakfast bar with underneath storage. This area also has space for a couple of comfortable lounge chairs from which to enjoy the beautiful gardens. The granite worktops provide plenty of preparation areas and include a sunken sink.
The kitchen has direct access to the large rustic style lounge area which boasts windows and several patio doorways to the outside gardens and long, wraparound shaded terraces. The ceilings are cane and beams and add a cosy feel to the rooms. A wood burning stove provides warmth for the cooler winter months.
The pretty master bedroom is situated to the north side of the lounge and has a walk in cupboard and attractive en-suite bathroom.
The second bedroom is located at the other side of the property and has a modern tiled en-suite bathroom plus doors to a private covered terrace. This covered terrace has an enclosed section which is currently used as a third bedroom.
The farmhouse is surrounded by covered terraces, mature trees and wonderful outdoor, shaded seating areas. There is also a large outside kitchen area adjacent to the large built-in bbq and a fabulous al fresco entertaining space.
Just to the south of the farmhouse is the 10m X 5m swimming pool with plenty of surrounding terraces and more seating areas. There is also a beautiful poolside bar with its own naturally shaded courtyard - fabulous for entertaining and lazy evenings by the pool.
On the west side of the property is a fenced area where the owner has built stables, tack rooms and chicken coops, all fenced in, and even a lunging area for training your horses.
On this separate section stands a motorcaravan enclosed withinin a covered area providing outdoor seating, living and even sleeping areas in the warm summer months. This would make ideal guest accommodation or a super place for an animal sitter to live.
If you enjoy country living with easy access to local beaches, Carvoeiro, Lagoa, golf courses and the Nobel international school, this property is definitely worth visiting. Only 5 minutes drive to 6 major supermarkets and 40 minutes from Faro airport.
