Lovingly Restored Traditional Home With Sea Views and Close to the Beach for sale in Carvoeiro, Algarve
Unique opportunity to purchase one of the original fisherman's cottages in the pretty seaside village of Carvoeiro with stunning sea views from the roof terrace. This beautifully renovated 3-bedroom home is situated on a peaceful leafy road, a few minutes walk to the centre of Carvoeiro and the sandy beach.
The present owners spent eight years restoring this character-filled property using natural elements and locally sourced products, creating a stylish and comfortable space with lots of light from an inner courtyard. This would make a lovely family home, and is ideal for having guests (or a bed-and-breakfast opportunity) as two of the three en-suite bedrooms can be accessed separately from the inner courtyard which has a gate to the road.
The front gate opens to a lovely terrace with a rustic bamboo shade - a perfect place to watch the world go by. The traditional wood front door opens to the living space, with a cosy lounge area to the one side and a dining area to the other. The ceiling is wood beams and planks, and the floor is a beautiful, polished concrete. Adjacent to the living room is a spacious kitchen boasting hand-crafted cabinets and a central island with breakfast bar, ceramic hob with extractor over, and sink. The kitchen is well-equipped with a dishwasher, Samsung fridge, plus eye-level oven and microwave. Patio doors open to a charming courtyard which lets in plenty of natural light to the kitchen.
The attractive courtyard features a wood pergola with a well-established grapevine, which in the summer provides plenty of shade as well as delicious grapes. This is a lovely space for al-fresco dining and there are planters with herbs set into an alcove. From the courtyard a passage leads to the road, and steps lead up to the superb roof terrace with plenty of space for lounging and catching the sun. From here there is a magnificent view across the village as well as to the beach and ocean - you can even watch the waves crash onto the shore! This is a perfect place to watch the sun go down while you take in the natural beauty of the coast.
Back inside, a door from the kitchen leads to a passage way with toilet / utility room (washing machine is in the cupboard) and through to a shower room which connects to the lower courtyard bedroom. This bedroom can also be accessed from patio doors off the inner courtyard.
From the kitchen, a polished concrete staircase leads up to the mezzanine level with a small office area plus a spacious attic bedroom with sloping ceilings and polished wood floors. This bedroom features a bathroom with freestanding bath tub, and a walk-in shower which has a glass door to a small terrace. A door from the office area leads across a passage way to the upper courtyard bedroom. This bedroom can also be accessed from the exterior courtyard stairs which then lead on to the roof terrace via a spiral staircase. This room was originally an artist's studio, and is sunny and bright. It also features a freestanding tub and walk-in shower. A polished concrete wall divides the bed from the walk-in wardrobe.
Extras include air conditioning in some rooms and solar hot water with a 200 litre tank. All electrics and plumbing have been renewed.
This gorgeous property is just a couple of minutes walk into the village with shops, restaurants, daily market and other amenities and less than 300m to the beach. With some of the most famous golf courses just on the door step, this is an absolutely perfect holiday rental or family home. It is a ten-minute drive to the Nobel International school, and Faro International airport is 45 minutes.
