Beautiful Tranquil 5 Bedroom Country Villa for sale in Carvoeiro, Algarve
Set in a plot of over 2ha, this beautiful retreat-type property is located at the end of a peaceful road, just two kilometres from the beach and a short drive into the popular village of Carvoeiro.
Impressive wrought iron, electric gates open to a long cobblestone driveway, with a turning circle at the end and doors to a double garage and large basement area for storage or games room with bathroom.
The front door opens to a spacious hallway and large bright lounge with a glass fronted feature fireplace. Patio doors allow plenty of natural sunlight and access to a superb terrace, ideal for outside entertaining, with peaceful south-facing views across the countryside.
To the left of the lounge is an attractive library or den, and to the right is a split-level dining area with direct access to the kitchen.
The stylish kitchen boasts a large pantry with fitted cupboards plus a central island. An enormous oven incorporates a convection oven, grill, and large hob with an electric warming plate. The kitchen has plenty of cupboard space and a picture window provides natural light. The back door opens to a sunny terrace, where you can enjoy your breakfast overlooking the quiet, beautiful gardens.
Behind the kitchen is a separate utility room and this opens to an office, or possible 5th bedroom, with en-suite bathroom. There are two more bedrooms on this level, another of which features an en-suite bathroom. For guests there is a separate bathroom located close to the kitchen and dining area.
An elegant staircase takes you to the upper level with a further two bedrooms, both of which have en-suite bathrooms and open on to a large terrace with fabulous views across the countryside.
For year-round comfort there is air conditioning in all the main rooms, two wood burning fireplaces plus a gas fire place. There is also a pellet burner in the living area providing warmth for the cooler winter months.
The lounge and outside terrace overlook a newly tiled 12x6 metre swimming pool with plenty of terrace space around it for lounging around enjoying the sun as well as an outdoor shower.
The gardens have been carefully planned with a vegetable area and fruit trees including fig, almond, apple, pear, orange, lemon, apricot and peach trees (to name a few). No pesticides have been used and the land would be ideal for growing organic produce. Paths meander through the garden leading to multiple shady seating areas and secluded spots to relax in peace. There is an ornate pond area with a meditation or yoga zone, and just beyond this is a small original donkey barn that is no longer used. Here the fenced area and formal garden ends but the grounds continue further with an area that has been left in its natural state. This would be great for horses or just peace of mind knowing that your views will not be changed.
This is an unusually large plot of land in this sought-after area and it would make a fabulous family home or a superb rental property with potential for a retreat of some sort. It is a 20 minute walk or short drive to the beach and restaurants. Carvoeiro village is close by, as are major supermarkets and shops. The international school is just 10 minutes drive and there are plenty of golf courses in easy reach. Faro International airport is a 40 minute drive on the highway.
