Charming Country Home With Views for sale in Silves, Algarve
Located only 10 minutes from the medieval town of Silves, in a peaceful valley, this lovely 3 bedroom home offers comfort and privacy without being isolated. The house is set well back from the road (tarred) and is not overlooked. With just over half a hectare of land (mostly level), there is plenty of space to keep animals, grow your own vegetables, or just enjoy the peace and quiet.
The open-plan living room has a vaulted ceiling, and a feature arched window overlooking the north garden and the hills in the distance. Over the dining area is a mezzanine which would make a great sleeping loft for when you have lots of visitors, or just extra storage. The wrap-around covered terrace is a lovely space to enjoy the views to the north and the west whilst relaxing in the shade or dining al-fresco.
The kitchen is spacious and has a window to the south garden. There are plenty of cupboards, eye level oven and microwave, gas hob, integrated fridge-freezer, and granite worktops. A door from here leads to the hall with plenty of space for coats and shoes, a guest cloakroom with toilet and space for the washing machine, and a door to the south garden and entertainment terrace.
There are 3 bedrooms, all of them with en-suite bathrooms. Two of the bedrooms have patio doors to the south side, plus en-suite bathrooms with shower cubicles. The master bedroom has patio doors to its own private covered terrace with views over the north garden and beyond, and an en-suite bathroom with bath.
Outside there is a covered terrace the full length of the south-side of the house and adjacent to this is a fantastic entertainment area with shady seating and summer kitchen with BBQ and prep area, plus a fireplace to keep it warm on winter evenings. There is ample room for a pool or jacuzzi if you'd like one.
Steps lead up to the next level where there is plenty of space to park plus a brick shed, useful for storage, although there is also attic storage in the house (above the bathrooms). The property has mains water as well as access to a well and there is a cistern for storing this water. There are a variety of fruit trees including orange, lemon, tangerine and pink grapefruit.
This is a lovely, peaceful location, surrounded by nature but close to amenities. Located a short 3km cycle from the pretty village of Vale Fuzeiros with its restaurants and cafés, it is only 8km to the market town of SB de Messines with daily market, shops, health centre, schools and train station.
