Penthouse Apartment With Panoramic Views in the Historic Centre, 5 Min. Walk From the Beach for sale in Lagos, Algarve
Tucked away on a quiet street, yet right in the heart of the historic centre of Lagos, this beautiful 3-bedroom apartment benefits from far-reaching, panoramic views over the old town and the long coastline, taking in the whole 5km long stretch of Meia Praia beach, as far as the resort of Carvoeiro and beyond in the distance. The living area, wide balcony and the master bedroom all encapsulate this magnificent view.
The property is on the top floor of a modern apartment block, comprising 3 floors with 3 apartments on each floor. The property benefits from a huge 47m2 private garage in the basement of the building with electric entrance doors. This is more than double the size of a standard lock up garage, so can easily accommodate 2 cars, with ample extra space for storage. An elevator leads from the basement to the top floor for easy access.
The wide entrance hall leads to the spacious living room and dining area with 2 sets of patio doors opening to the large balcony, with fabulous views from every angle. You can see the whole expanse of Meia Praia beach, the fishing harbour and even the golden Chapel of Saint Anthony. This balcony has 2 electric awnings to give shade in the heat of the summer months (both are fitted with wind detection sensors, so will close automatically if too windy).
The living room features a gas wood burning effect fire for cosy winter evenings as well as an almost new air conditioning unit for hot summer days. The kitchen is located opposite the living room and is fitted with quality appliances such as a Miele washing machine, a Siemens dishwasher, an NEFF oven and a gas hob. There's a very handy walk-in pantry for food storage, plus space in the kitchen for a table and chairs. There's also a small balcony overlooking the central courtyard, letting lots of light into the kitchen.
Along the hall are 3 spacious bedrooms and 2 large bathrooms. The master suite at the end of the hall has its own en-suite bathroom with a large walk-in shower and patio doors to the wide, main balcony with those glorious ocean and town views. There are a further 2 bedrooms with Juliet balconies, both overlooking the central courtyard, which share the spacious family bathroom. All the bedrooms are large and all have fitted wardrobes and air-conditioning (for heating and cooling).
All windows are double-glazed and have built-in roll-down shutters plus internal blinds. The property is being sold fully furnished and equipped, ready to move into.
One flight of stairs lead to a communal roof terrace which has panoramic 360º views across the historic town centre. This is the perfect spot for sun bathing and there are also washing lines for drying sheets.
This apartment is within easy walking distance to the town beaches and all that Lagos has to offer. Lagos has over 200 restaurants and cafés and the historic town centre is vibrant and so full of character, with its maze of narrow cobbled streets. The town beaches of Batata and Estudantes are just a 5-minute walk away, through the arch in the historic town wall. Be the first to leave footprints on the beach each morning before heading for a coffee at your favourite coffee shop! It's also only just over a 10-minute walk to the stunning beach of Praia Dona Ana, which has to be one of the most photographed beaches in the whole of the Algarve, surrounded by the beautiful caves and grottoes of the Ponta da Piedade peninsula.
This is a fabulous opportunity for anyone wanting a quality apartment with amazing views and plenty of space for permanent living. While the apartment does not have an AL holiday rental license, there are other non-permanent rental options to bring in an income if desired. The garage (on a separate title but included in the price) can also be rented out if not required, as there is strong demand for garages in the historic centre.
