This 3 bedroom home is set in peaceful countryside with lovely views over the surrounding hills and valleys, yet only 10 minutes drive from the medieval town of Silves. A café and excellent restaurant are just a short stroll away and this is a great area for hiking or biking, with the Barragem (dam) just a couple of minutes drive.
A gated entrance leads to a gravel parking area and driveway. The front door opens to an entrance hall with arch to the open-plan living room. The lounge area has an open wood-burning fireplace and 2 sets of sliding doors onto a south facing conservatory. From the conservatory there are windows and a door to the walled garden with a spacious covered terrace overlooking the pool, just perfect for al-fresco dining.
Adjacent to the lounge is the dining room, which has sliding doors onto the conservatory. Opening off the dining room is the fitted kitchen with free-standing gas range and plenty of counter space.
From the entrance hall a corridor leads to the 3 bedrooms and family bathroom which has a bath with shower over. All of the bedrooms have built-in wardrobes and pretty views over the countryside. The master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with a small bath with separate walk-in shower, and its window faces south overlooking the pool and walled garden.
There is a generous paved terrace around the 9m x 5m pool which is a lovely space for relaxing and enjoying the sunshine. The pool area is walled to ensure privacy. Next to the house is a small annex which is being renovated. It will have a window looking north and a sliding door to the pool terrace and could potentially be used as storage for pool loungers and equipment, or transformed into a summer kitchen or guest studio.
South of the house are 3 flat terraces of land planted with fruit trees, predominantly orange although there are also olive and fig. This would be a great area for a horse or other animals. Water to irrigate is from the canal system, and water for the house is from mains. There are 4 garages or store rooms next to the house.
Located just 10 minutes from Silves with its daily market, shops, banks, schools and other amenities, this is a great location. It is only 15 minutes to a golf course and about 20 minutes to the coast. Faro airport is 45 minutes on the motorway.
