Located only a 2 minute drive from the closest restaurant and only 15 minutes from the quaint fishing village of Alvor, this property offers the peace and privacy of the countryside but is not isolated as there are neighbours in the area.
Electric gates open to a large parking area. A double carport provides shade and the spacious double garage with store room offers further parking and storage.
The front door opens to a spacious entrance hall overlooking the mono-vaulted, beamed open-plan living area with views over to the garden. A door leading off of the entrance hall opens to the cosy home office/study. From the hall two steps lead down into the spacious quarter-circle shaped, living area. The sunken lounge has a feature fireplace to add cosiness in the winter and two feature display nooks. Several sets of sliding patio doors lead onto the partially covered terrace for seamless entertaining. The dining area, filled with natural light from double patio doors, is adjacent to the large kitchen which offers plenty of space for a table and chairs. The kitchen boasts a peninsula with electric hob and extractor, granite worktops, fridge, dishwasher and built-in oven. An external door leads outside to the covered terrace perfect for al-fresco dining and bbq’s. There is also a laundry/storage room and another exterior door leading to the parking area for convenient unloading of shopping.

All bedrooms offer built-in wardrobes, air-conditioning and patio doors leading to outside terraces.

Outside, the main living part of the property is fenced and gated and there is a pathway all around the outside of the house, The manicured gardens offer many mature trees and there is a small orchard with numerous fruit trees - oranges, lemons, mango and loquat to name a few. Beyond the landscaped garden a path leads to a small gated paddock. Approximately half the land is on the other side of the small country road and would make a perfect paddock for keeping a horse or other animals.
The property benefits from its own well which supplies the automatic irrigation system. The house itself is on the municipal mains water supply.
The property is situated in the countryside yet close to amenities, only a 15 minute drive to the supermarkets and shops in Portimão and to Alvor with its beautiful beach and array of fresh fish restaurants. The closest golf is only 12 minutes away and Faro airport is a 55 minute drive.
