This beach house sits in a truly enviable location, only a few paces from the golden sandy beach in the lovely resort village of Praia da Luz. Occupying a plot of 425 square metres, this property has large wrought iron entrance gates leading to a very large cobble stone parking area with direct access into two individual garages plus the boat house. The fourth covered area acts as a gated entrance courtyard leading to the front door of the property. Off this courtyard there's a large utility room comprising a laundry area, shower and sink (perfect for when you come straight off the beach) and a sizeable storage space.
The entrance hall features ornate original floor tiles and built in cupboards. A marble staircase leads straight up to the 1st floor. The open-plan living space is wonderfully light with windows stretching the full length of the property, capturing the views of the beach and ocean. This living space comprises a beautiful kitchen with solid wood doors and granite tops, original hand-painted wall tiles and polished terracotta flooring. There's a dining area followed by the living area with a fireplace for winter evenings and double patio doors opening on to the wide veranda, again running the length of the property. The veranda features two separate seating areas and has a wooden pergola overhead which can have a shade cloth woven through it in the summer if shade is required. This is such a perfect spot to dine and relax and soak up the beach-life atmosphere.
Behind the living space is the hall to the bedrooms. The 1st bedroom has lovely high ceilings and its own private shower room. There's then a family bathroom with twin sinks and a large walk-in shower. The second twin bedroom has a door out on to a large terrace with perfect views to the beach. If a 3rd bedroom is required, this terrace is large enough to create an extra bedroom, potentially with en-suite bathroom (subject to planning permission). Both bedrooms also feature large skylights to let in extra light, making them bright and airy. And both have lovely hard-wood wardrobes fitted (there's a safe built in to one of the wardrobes).
The property benefits from air conditioning throughout, which also provides heating. The windows are double glazed and there's a gas boiler for hot water and a gas hob and oven in the kitchen. To the rear, on the ground floor, there is a narrow patio running around the property, an ideal clothes drying area. The parking area is surrounded by mature shrubs and bougainvillea and if more of a garden is required then some of the large parking area could be converted into garden space.
The village of Praia da Luz offers water sports centres on the beach, an excellent selection of restaurants, cafes and bars as well as several supermarkets and shops. Plus there is the municipal market selling fresh fish daily.
This character property is perfect for anyone wanting to have a spacious beach-pad with loads of room for car parking, jet-ski, boats, etc.
