This charming home is situated just a few kilometres from the centre of Carvoeiro, but is surrounded by peaceful countryside with no direct neighbours. The property is divided into two self-contained apartments, each with 2 bedrooms, making it a lovely place to live with ample space for friends and family to visit.
A paved driveway with plenty of parking leads past pretty low-maintenance gardens accented with natural stone walls, to an open garage and large workshop. The upper apartment is reached from an attractive covered terrace with steps from the driveway as well as the front garden. The lounge-dining area has 2 sets of patio doors allowing lots of natural light and there is a wood burning fireplace for the cooler months. The fitted kitchen was recently updated and is modern and bright with granite counter-tops and a door onto the wraparound terrace for easy al-fresco dining. There are two generous bedrooms, each with dual aspect windows, and a spacious tiled bathroom with bath with shower over and double basins. This level features a terrace wrapping around 2 sides of the house and overlooking the gardens and surrounding countryside - a lovely spot in which to relax in the shade.
The lower level apartment has a great view to the pool and gardens. A covered terrace provides a super place for entertaining and relaxing with a cool drink. Double patio doors open to a large tiled lounge and dining room. The kitchen is adjacent to the dining area and has a separate pantry. A spacious hall with traditional Portuguese tiled walls leads to two bedrooms and two fully-tiled bathrooms, one with a walk-in shower and the other with a bath. This is an ideal place for family and friends to stay.
The property was originally one house and could be again, if required. The old staircase has been removed but could be put back. However the current layout works well providing separate accommodation for guests and frequent visitors.
The garden features a variety of low-maintenance succulents and Mediterranean plants as well as lawn. Hedges provide a green backdrop as well as privacy. The sparkling 10 x 5m pool has been recently re-tiled and is surrounded by terrace with ample space for loungers if you wish to soak up the sun. This property has its own borehole which has an excellent filtration system, including UV sterilisation and reverse osmosis.
This is a lovely location, walking distance to Intermarche supermarket and just a short drive to Lagoa town centre as well as the picturesque coastal villages of Carvoeiro and Ferragudo. Stunning beaches are only a few kilometres away and the Nobel international school is 8 minutes by car. Faro airport is only 40 minutes on the motorway.
