Attractive Country Home With Fantastic Views for sale in Silves, Algarve
This lovely property is set in an elevated position with far-reaching views across the orange groves and countryside towards Silves town and Monchique in the distance. It features a charming 2 bedroom house, various outbuildings including a lovely summer kitchen, plus a mobile home for friends and family. The land features some level areas, terraced orange groves and space for animals.
A covered porch leads to the front door and entrance hall. The open plan living room features sliding glass doors on the north side to capture the views as well as windows to the east and west making it sunny and light. There is a wood-burning stove for cooler winter evenings as well as air-conditioning (to heat and cool). The kitchen has wood cupboards, traditional tiled backsplash and ample counter space, and boasts a Rangemaster cooker with two ovens plus a grill as well as a 5-burner gas hob which has a griddle plus wok function.
Two bedrooms open off the entrance hall, each with windows facing east. One bedroom has a built-in wardrobe (extra deep for ample storage) and both bedrooms have underfloor heating. The family bathroom has a walk-in shower, washbasin and toilet. A space next to the bathroom (currently used for storage) has been designed to connect to a 3rd bedroom, should you wish to extend, but could also be used as an office nook. External steps lead up to the roof terrace from which you have 360º views over the countryside - a lovely spot for stargazing.
Outside, conveniently close to the house, is another building currently used as a laundry / utility room. This is well-equipped with plenty of cupboards and counter, a sink, and space for washing machine, dryer, freezer etc. It would make a great office separate from the house if you want to work from home (there is fibre internet available). Next to the utility room is a workshop or storage shed and adjacent to this is a fabulous summer kitchen with 2 bbq's and a generous shaded area perfect for entertaining large parties. On the terrace below the summer kitchen is an area that has been used for an above ground pool (currently dismantled).
To the east side of the property is a mobile home which has been designed as a completely separate and private space for family and friends, with its own driveway and parking. The 2 bedroom mobile home has a lounge/dining space with gas fireplace (the sofa converts to a 3rd bed), a kitchen area with oven, plus a compact shower room. There is a large covered deck extending the full length of the mobile home - a lovely space to relax in the shade and admire the views. At the end of the deck is another spacious bathroom with washbasin and shower, as well as a washing machine. There is a built-in barbecue area with sink and prep area and plenty of space to relax in the sun.
To the west side of the property is another store room or workshop, giving you plenty of storage. Close to the house is a fenced and gated parking area, and adjoining the house is a carport. There are a variety of fruit trees on the property including different types of oranges, lemons, figs, pomegranate and grapes. There is also a chicken run which is completely fenced in.
The property has access to fibre internet and the house and mobile home have satellite dishes. Water is from a borehole (shared with a neighbour) with 2 cisterns (storage tanks), one of which also collects rain water. For year-round comfort there is air-conditioning (to heat and cool), underfloor heating in the bedrooms and entrance hall, and a wood-burning fireplace in the living room.
