Charming Villa With Country Views Just a 7 Minute Drive to the Beach for sale in Lagos, Algarve
Located just outside of Lagos, this beautifully presented villa comprises 3 bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms, plus an office or 4th bedroom. Entrance gates open to a gravel parking area for 4 cars, with a shade sail off to the side of the house for parking under. Stunning pink bougainvillea covers the front of the property. The entrance hall features a beautiful staircase with double height ceiling.
On the ground floor, French doors open off the entrance hall into the living / dining room which hosts a wonderful log burner in a feature fireplace with a large brick surround. There are 3 sets of patio doors off the living room opening on to the lovely covered outdoor dining terrace, which features gorgeous country views and can also be accessed directly from the kitchen. Steps lead down to the pool terrace which boasts a covered barbecue area with a handy kitchen sink, plus an adjacent shower room with toilet. The pool measures a generous 10 x 5 metres and is solar-heated by 6 dedicated solar panels. The pool and surrounding terraces are very private and are not overlooked by neighbours.
Back inside, the spacious kitchen has a farmhouse style and has a large island / breakfast bar with range-type gas oven and hob. There's a lovely ornate log-burner tucked into the corner of the kitchen, plus an adjoining laundry / utility room with sink and a sizeable kitchen pantry. The semi-open-plan layout of the kitchen-diner-living room with adjacent large covered outdoor dining area really lends itself to those who love entertaining guests.
At the end of the hallway there's a guest cloakroom. Off to the right is a spacious bedroom with en-suite shower room and patio doors open to a small south-facing covered terrace, with space for a table and chairs. Off to the left is a bright, twin-aspect study, again with a south-facing covered terrace, ideal as a 4th bedroom if required. There's also a good-sized storage cupboard under the stairs.
Upstairs, there are a further 2 bedrooms: a spacious double bedroom with dressing area and en-suite shower room, plus the master bedroom which has a full bathroom plus access onto a wonderful, large terrace with panoramic views over the valley to the Monchique mountains in the distance. This terrace can also be accessed from the hall and there's ample space for sunbathing or simply relaxing. There is also a large store room at the top of the stairs that can be used for coats, linen, storage, etc.
All the bedrooms have fitted wardrobes, plus ceiling fans. The villa benefits from air-conditioning throughout (which heats and cools). There are 2 storage areas under the house, perfect as log stores. The villa is surrounded by an easily maintained garden area.
Beyond the villa and pool area, the plot drops gradually away down several large terraces with beautiful old stone walls. Stone steps lead from one terrace to the next. There's plenty of open space for children to play, plus areas that have been left very natural with many mature trees. There's even an old well and water tank and evidence of the old irrigation channels from when all this land would once have been farmed. For anyone wanting to keep animals such as one or two horses, there is a gradual gravel slope leading down the side of the villa to access these lower terraces without navigating stone steps. This area is a little paradise and could be developed further to create more formal gardens or vegetable patches or to raise animals.
Being just 6kms from the centre of Lagos and its wonderful beaches, amenities are not too far away. In 6 - 7 minutes you can be shopping in Lagos or on the beach. There's one café within a 5 minute walk of the villa, plus other cafés, restaurants and mini-markets just 2kms away. This lovely villa would work well as either a permanent residence or as a holiday home.
