This beautiful, recently constructed villa is situated on the edge of a tiny hamlet, just a few minutes drive from the beaches at Salema, Cabanas and Boca do Rio. The property is located almost at the end of a quiet cobbled village lane, with a neighbour to the side and open fields to the rear.
Automatic electric gates give access to off-road parking for one vehicle. The entrance leads into the magnificent open-plan living area, with its high ceilings and industrial-style steel beams and lots of light flooding in. A Fogo Montanha fireplace is the focal point of the room and heats this large space. The kitchen area benefits from hand-crafted stylish marble work-tops and shelving as well as a large central island with gas hob. The kitchen has a built-in marble pantry unit, a beautiful Belfast sink, plus dishwasher, washing machine, electric oven and fridge-freezer. All white goods are included in the sale. There’s ample space for a large dining table and the living area opens on to the pool-side terrace.
Off the living area are beautiful crafted double doors to the master suite, comprising a spacious bedroom with patio doors to the pool and an en-suite bathroom with a large walk-in shower. There is a second smaller bedroom with patio doors to the front of the property and a shower room on the opposite side of the hall. Both these bedrooms have air-conditioning fitted. Wide solid stone steps lead down from the living area through very grand doors to a further large room with fireplace, that could be used as an additional lounge, games room or a third bedroom. Triple patio doors open to the pool area.
The free-form pool is salt-water with a natural stone finish. There’s ample space around the pool for sun loungers, table and chairs, etc. There’s also a good-sized storage shed, plus extra shelving in the pool pump room which also has a shower. To the side of the property is a perfect spot for drying clothes and a side gate leads back around to the front of the property where there’s a lovely covered terrace catching the afternoon and evening sun. The flower beds set behind the beautiful dry stone wall along the front of the property benefit from automatic irrigation.
The property has a solar hot water system and is on mains electric, water and sewage. Amenities such as supermarkets, cafes and restaurants are only a 3 minute drive away. There are also some stunning walks through the protected Costa Vincentina Natural Park - an example is a 60 minute walk to the completely unspoilt Boca do Rio beach. There are several fantastic surfing beaches within a 10 to 15 minute drive of the property.
Boasting an 'A' in energy rating, this comfortable property is less than 2 years old and is still under warranty for the next 3 years. This property would make an excellent family home and is equally ideal as a holiday home due to its low maintenance terracing and gardens.
