Home Renovation Project in the Historic Centre for sale in Silves, Algarve
This is a fantastic opportunity to create a beautiful home in the heart of the historic centre of Silves, just steps from the cathedral and castle, with a separate guest apartment underneath. Located on a quiet cobblestone street, the 2 storey property features a lovely enclosed courtyard with traditional stone walls and Santa Catarina tile floors, a covered terrace with wood beam ceiling and a mature ficus tree for shade. On this level there is the potential for a 3 or 4 bedroom home with access to the courtyard garden. This level also provides access to a sunny roof terrace with lovely views across much of the old town.
Patio doors lead from the courtyard into a lounge with vaulted ceiling. This connects to a spacious room with wood floors which could easily be converted into a generous living room, or subdivided to create a dining area plus another bedroom. Off this area is a bedroom with en-suite shower room plus mezzanine (for sleeping or extra storage). A door from here opens to a small atrium featuring old rock walls and stone seating area. Opening off the lounge is another room with patio doors to the courtyard, which would make a lovely bedroom. There is a shower room/ guest toilet off the lounge.
A door from the living room opens to the entrance hall with stone steps down to the street level. The original kitchen with traditional tiled walls and marble countertops opens off this area, and there is a glass door to the balcony and roof terrace. From the roof terrace there are lovely views across the roof tops to the cathedral and the stately City Hall building, as well as access to a small attic room which could be used for storage or even an overflow sleeping area.
On the lower level, with a separate door from the street, is a small apartment. It has been partially renovated with plumbing for a bathroom, one bedroom, small kitchen and lounge area. In addition to the traditional front door with glass panel for light, there are 2 more windows onto the street as well as a window to the rear which looks into the small atrium. Although at the moment this apartment is separate from the main house above, it could be connected with an internal staircase.
The property has been partially renovated with some new wiring and water pipes, however it is in need of work including a new roof. There is a lot of potential to make a lovely family home in an excellent location with charming outdoor space plus a separate apartment below. Situated in the historic centre of the medieval town of Silves it is just steps to cafés, restaurants, river walks and the castle. There is a daily market in town as well as a wide variety of shops and all of the amenities you could need including public swimming pool and gym facility. Beaches are close by - either 15 minutes by car or a short train ride.
