This charming country property has magnificent views and is conveniently located with a restaurant close by, excellent hiking and riding trails on your doorstep, and only 5 minutes drive from the medieval town of Silves with all of its amenities. The spacious 3 bedroom home boasts an outdoor entertainment area, garage, swimming pool, privacy, and plenty of peace and quiet.
A pretty covered porch (a lovely spot from which to enjoy the sunset) opens to a wide entrance hall. From here the spacious living room features high ceilings, wood-burning stove and doors to the terrace and gardens. An adjoining dining room features a bay window with views to the Silves castle in the distance and a connecting door to the compact kitchen. The kitchen is well-equipped with plenty of cupboards and work-surface, an under-counter fridge, ceramic hob and under-counter oven, plus space for a dishwasher.
There are 3 bedrooms, two of which benefit from east-facing windows to let in the morning sun. There are two family bathrooms, one with double vanity and bath with shower over, and the other with walk-in shower. In addition there is a utility room or laundry with washing machine, and a corner of the spacious hall area is currently used as an office.
Outside is a covered entertainment area with cosy wood-burning fireplace and views over the valley and hills. The new fibreglass pool has a seating area and jets, and is surrounded by paving with plenty of space to relax and soak up the sun. Next to the pool is a shed. There is also a single car garage (which could easily be converted into a fourth bedroom) and separate workshop into the hillside.
Extra features include air-conditioning in each room, shutters or security bars on all windows, and a fenced area of about 1,800m2 around the house.
Above the house are 2 flat terraces of land, both with water and electricity connections. Given the ample plot size, these could be ideal for a small scale rural tourism project with yurts or safari tents. Alternatively they would also work for possible horse stables.
The property is on the edge of the hills with miles of biking, hiking and riding trails leading all the way to the nearby dam. It is just a short walk into the village with a friendly cafe and restaurant. Riding stables are close by and it is only 5km to Silves with all of its amenities. 45 minutes to Faro airport, 20 minutes to beautiful beaches and close to a selection of golf courses.
