This character-filled artist's home and studio is conveniently located within walking distance of Silves with its cafés, restaurants, shops and amenities. The spacious villa is set in a compact, low maintenance plot with plenty of mature trees. With just a little work it could be transformed into one large home, or used as two separate living spaces connected by a central atrium. Should you wish to have a pool, there is ample space for one in the mature gardens.
A natural stone wall frames the property, with an automatic gate opening to the parking area. A path leads around the house to the covered porch and front door which opens to the living room in the upper part of the house.
The bright and sunny living room has a wood-burner with stone surround and patio doors open on to the east facing garden which would be a lovely spot for a pool. Adjacent is the kitchen with fitted cupboards, electric oven and gas hob, and dishwasher. There is space to eat-in next to the window and glass door overlooking the central atrium, filled with tropical plants. A short passage, with sliding doors to an enclosed terrace, connects the living room with the bedrooms. There are two bedrooms in this part of the property, one with built-in wardrobes. They share a bathroom with jetted tub with shower over. Also on this level is another room with plumbing for a washing machine but that could also be used as an office or small bedroom.
From the central atrium sliding glass doors open to the lower part of the property, just two steps down. The patio doors open to a spacious room with window overlooking the east-side garden plus skylights to let in plenty of light. A wood door with glass panels leads through to another room which features a domed ceiling, recessed arches with spotlights and a sliding door to the arched south-side terrace. Two more bedrooms open off this space, one of which has another small room adjacent with a connecting door that would be ideal for a future bathroom with dressing area, or office space. The potential master bedroom (former art studio) has sliding doors onto a small terrace with pergola overlooking the west-side of the property as well as space for an en-suite bathroom. Also on this level is a guest cloakroom with toilet and washbasin.
The sunny garden is easy to maintain and filled with mature trees (including orange and lemon), palms, succulents and others plants native to the area.
This property has lots of potential with the ability to configure and convert the rooms to meet your needs - whether as a large family home with games room, office and more, or keeping the two parts more distinct with a separate area for guests.
Located just 1km from Silves town, 5 minutes drive from Silves golf, 12km to the coast and only 40 minutes from Faro airport.
