Situated in a quiet residential neighbourhood in the quaint fishing village of Mexilhoeira da Carregação - often compared to Ferragudo as it was 20 years ago - this tastefully renovated top-floor apartment boasts stunning, unobstructed views over the river and tidal estuary, Portimão bridge and north to the Monchique mountains. Across from the apartment is a marina and boat launch and it is just a short stroll to the village centre with cafés, restaurants, children's park and outdoor exercise area. The Portimão Naval Club also operates from this area offering canoeing and sailing courses from their clubhouse.
The apartment is on the 3rd floor (no elevator) of this quiet residential building with only 2 apartments on each level. The front door opens to the open-plan living space. The lounge and dining area have floor to ceiling windows to capture the panoramic views and sunsets as well as flood the apartment with natural light. The stylish fitted kitchen has built-in appliances including dishwasher, fridge, eye-level oven, induction hob and granite worktops. There is an east-facing balcony off the kitchen with space for a bistro table and chairs (currently glassed in) as well as a small utility area housing the boiler and plumbing for a washing machine.
There are 3 bedrooms with built-in wardrobes and each boasts views north to the river and mountains. The master bedroom has full-length windows so that you can sit in bed and soak up the view! There are 2 bathrooms. One has a walk-in shower and the other has a bath with shower over. Both bathrooms have windows for natural light.
The communal roof top terrace is one flight of stairs up and perfect for barbeques and sunbathing (you can leave your outdoor furniture and bbq here). There is a small car park behind the building providing off-street parking as well as plenty of parking on the street in front of the building. If you prefer to use public transport, the bus stop is just 200m and there is a train station within 2km.
This three bedroom apartment, featuring dimmable mood lighting in every room, is more than spacious enough for year-round living and would also make a fantastic lock-up and leave holiday home. Building maintenance is completely managed by a condo management company and condo fees are around €20/month.
The popular village of Ferragudo with its beaches and restaurants is only 3km and the bustling town of Portimão with its riverfront promenade and large shopping centres is about the same distance. Lagoa village is just 4 km away and Faro airport is 45 minutes by motorway.
