Charming Traditional Home With Pool, Guest Annex and Views for sale in Silves, Algarve
Situated on a ridge with lovely views this partially-renovated, character property has lots of potential, with a main house with 3 bedrooms, a guest annex, pool and 1.4ha of land. It is less than 10 minutes from the medieval town of Silves with its castle, restaurants and river-front, and is a lovely area for walking or biking.
Entrance gates open to a parking area and path through the gardens to the main house. From the attractive front porch, double doors open to the entrance hall with vaulted ceiling and its own wood-burner, plus a guest bathroom with shower. Off the entrance hall is the central corridor, which leads past the kitchen and bedrooms to the south-facing living room. The living room has a spacious dining area with windows on to the terrace, plus a sunny lounge with feature fire-place and patio doors to the terrace, summer kitchen and pool.
The kitchen is spacious with plenty of cupboards, under-counter oven and gas hob. There is plenty of space for informal dining, plus there is a large pantry / utility room for extra storage. The master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with double vanity and shower cubicle, and plenty of space to create a walk-in wardrobe or dressing room. Bedroom 2 also has an en-suite bathroom, which is partially finished and has space for a bath (although it has not been installed). The 3rd bedroom has a window to the south-facing terrace.
Patio doors from the living room lead outside to the terrace and garden. The summer kitchen is a lovely spot for al-fresco dining with a built-in barbecue, tiled counters, and a wood-beamed pergola for shade. The 10 x 4 m pool is surrounded by a terrace paved with traditional Santa Catarina tiles and there is plenty of space for sun loungers. A pretty rockery divides the pool area from the garden, and a path leads down to the lower terraces with olive and carob trees.
Next to the summer kitchen is a guest annex with fitted kitchen, lounge / bedroom and bathroom with shower. Steps from here lead back to the parking area where there is a small workshop plus a wood store.
This traditional-style property has lots of potential. It has been partially renovated and does need finishing, but with a little work would make a lovely family home or attractive rental property.
Ideally located between the medieval town of Silves with its castle and riverfront, and the market town of SB de Messines, it is about 10 minutes drive to either, with daily markets, shops, cafés and restaurants. This is a lovely area for walking, hiking and cycling and there are restaurants within 2km. The coast and beaches are only 18km and Faro airport can be reached in 45 minutes. The Nobel international school is 25 minutes drive or the bus collects in Silves, and the German and Dutch international schools are 15 minutes away.
