Charming Country Villa Just a 5 Minute Drive From the Beach for sale in Espiche, Algarve
Situated just outside the village of Espiche, close to the popular beach resort of Praia da Luz, this beautifully modernised 3 bedroom villa has stunning panoramic views over the surrounding countryside. With different outdoor entertaining areas on 3 sides of the villa, plus a fabulous roof terrace with amazing 360 degrees views of the area, this property will suit any family looking for a comfortable home close to all amenities.
A driveway leads up through the landscaped gardens to this villa nestled on the hill. There are 2 separate parking areas, both able to accommodate 2 cars each. The entrance vestibule opens to a wide hall where we find the main open-plan living area off to the right through French doors. This room, with its high ceilings and many windows, has an immediate sense of space and light. The sleek, fully-fitted U-shaped kitchen is on one side of the room, with a fabulous large covered outdoor terrace through the rear kitchen door, whilst the living and dining area open on to a wide covered balcony stretching the length of the property. The living room benefits from a log-burner with back-boiler that heats the whole house via radiators.
Off the hall are 3 good-sized bedrooms, 1 of which has an en-suite shower room that can also be accessed from the hall, plus a family bathroom. Two of the bedrooms open on to the wide balcony and these bedrooms benefit from a built-in natural cooling system via water-cooled pipes, perfect for hot summer days.
Outside there's a fenced garden area, with space for a pool (subject to planning permission) plus an outbuilding of approximately 40m2, perfect as a workshop. Also tucked in a sheltered corner, there's a beautifully designed seating area surrounding a fire pit. Beyond the garden is an unfenced area that would be perfect if you wanted a vegetable patch or even if you wanted to keep chickens, etc. The roof terrace, accessed via external stairs to the side of the property, has a wooden pergola to make the most of this fabulous area with far reaching views to the Monchique mountains and also westwards, the perfect spot to watch the sunset.
The property has been completely re-plumbed and re-wired. It also benefits from a solar hot water system, with gas back-up for cloudy days. The wooden flooring throughout the house (except in the bathrooms) is quality 4mm engineered oak boards.
The property is on mains water, mains electric and has a two tier septic tank system plus there's a 7m3 tank under the terrace for gray water that can be used for irrigation if required.
The village has a number of superb restaurants and a selection of cafés, plus a small municipal market.
