This truly outstanding villa is situated in the unspoilt coastal stretch of Caramujeira, which boasts some of the most beautiful beaches in the Algarve, and is just a short drive to the popular village of Carvoeiro, with many shops and restaurants.
Double wrought iron electric gates open to an attractive driveway with plenty of parking in front of the house and a double garage. The driveway continues on to the guest annex which is separated from the villa allowing the two properties to be privately accessed.
The main house
The property has been recently renovated to a high standard and tastefully blends traditional and modern styles. An impressive entrance door opens to the hallway.
The spacious open-plan living room has high beamed ceilings and a relaxed colonial touch to it. A wood burning fireplace is located in the lounge area and four double doors opening onto the covered terraces and gardens that surround the property. An attractive wooden spiral staircase leads to a mezzanine office or library overlooking the lounge.
The dining area is adjacent to the superb fully-fitted kitchen which benefits from oak-finish cupboards and smart black granite work surfaces. A steam oven and a dishwasher add to the list of kitchen appliances. A separate utility room is accessed through an archway and provides space for a washing machine, dryer, plenty more storage and a second fridge.
From the lounge a wooden staircase leads to the charming master bedroom built into the eaves. This delightful and spacious room feels cosy and features double doors to a tiled balcony with sparkling ocean views. There is an attractive en-suite bathroom with jetted tub, walk-in shower and double vanity. Two walk-in wardrobes provide plenty of space for clothes and shoes.
From the entrance hall a doorway provides access to the guest bedroom wing with three ample bedrooms, two of which have patio doors to the outside terrace and all have fitted wardrobes. A modern tiled wet room plus large guest bathroom service this area. If desired, this part can be closed of from the rest of the house, leaving the master bedroom and living rooms.
Underfloor heating is installed not only in all of the bathrooms, but also the kitchen and the living areas, making this a wonderful house to winter in. The master bedroom also has air-conditioning.
The guest house
The guest house is licensed for holiday rentals with fabulous online reviews and a certificate of excellence. People love the peaceful location and proximity to town.
It has two generous bedrooms and a shared bathroom with walk-in shower. The spacious lounge has a wood burning stove plus double patio doors to a private and shady terrace, with outside dining and space for sun loungers while enjoying views to the gardens. This is a perfect location for renting or even guest accommodation for family and friends. Alternatively it would make a superb little home for elderly relatives.
The automatically irrigated and fenced gardens have been tastefully designed and the whole south facing side of the property has plenty of greenery and attractive trees and plants. The lawns surround the house and are laid down to the large swimming pool.
The property is supplied with water from a borehole and mains water is available if required. There is an alarm system, although it is not generally needed in this peaceful area.
This charming home is in a perfect location, far enough from the village not to be disturbed by summer vacationers but close enough to pop in, or out, for dinner. Three main golf courses are within a short drive and the airport is approximately 45 minutes drive.
