A unique opportunity to acquire a substantial and recently built property in the village of Figueira, within walking distance of Figueira beach, only 2 kilometres from the idyllic fishing village of Salema, and within a five minute drive of the Santo Antonio golf resort.
The property was built in 2005 and is currently divided into two identical self contained apartments, but could easily be converted into one 4 bedroom residence. The current layout gives flexible use for owner occupation, or rental purposes, or a combination of these two.
Built to a high specification, each apartment has two double bedrooms and two bathrooms. One is a generous en-suite shower room and the other with full size tub and shower over can serve as either the guest bathroom or else as an en-suite bathroom for the second bedroom. Each apartment also features a spacious living area with fitted open-plan kitchen. The lower apartment is 108m2 in size while the upper is 103 m2. The property is double glazed, with roller shutter blinds fitted to all windows. Underfloor heating is installed and construction enables the opportunity to install a wood burning stove if required.
The property has a spacious traditional cobblestone courtyard, with double doors to the street enabling off road car parking if required. Alternatively there is sufficient space for the installation of a plunge pool. The first floor also has balconies to the front and rear. The property spans 2 streets within the village, giving independent access from either side of the house to the 2 floors (the ground floor apartment is entered from the north-side of the property, whilst the first floor is accessed via the courtyard on the south-side of the property. From the first floor, their are lovely views to the north and to the south over the rooftops to the beautiful Costa Vincentina Natural Park beyond, which is a totally unspoiled area perfect for hiking, cycling and horse-riding.
The numerous beaches in this area (including several popular surfing beaches) are pristine. The village itself has several cafés and a couple of nice restaurants, plus 2 small mini-markets, with further shops and amenities close by in Budens as well as Salema.
This is a perfect low-maintenance home, with the added bonus of rental income from letting one of the apartments if needed.
