Delightful Farmhouse With Annex Nestled in Scenic Hilly Countryside in Mexilhoeira Grande, Algarve


Delightful Farmhouse With Annex Nestled in Scenic Hilly Countryside for sale in Mexilhoeira Grande, Algarve


This charming and character-filled farmhouse (or quinta) has been thoughtfully and lovingly rebuilt and offers privacy and tranquillity, making the most of the country location and the typical Algarve outdoor lifestyle.  Set in beautiful mature gardens filled with an extensive variety of trees, fruit-trees and shrubs with impressive outdoor entertainment areas, this really is a piece of paradise.

This eco-friendly property uses photovoltaic (solar) energy with battery storage and the water is from a well, making it completely off grid and self-sufficient.   

This enchanting property has stunning views over the surrounding hills and valley. It is easily reached via a tarmac road and a country track. A small bridge crosses the babbling stream at the entrance to the property. The driveway leads to an area for parking by the house, and there is a single carport for shade.

A cobblestone path and tiled stairs lead through the beautiful gardens to the house. Upon entering the house, you will find a spacious open-plan kitchen and dining room boasting a wood burning fireplace and wooden ceilings over exposed beams. The kitchen with its granite worktop has a stand-alone cooker and hob and plenty of work space. The room is flooded with natural light from the 2 sets of patio doors that bring the outside in: one leads to a beautiful covered terrace area with wood beam ceiling and the BBQ area, and the other has views over the garden. Further around the terrace is a pergola and terrace area perfect for alfresco dining. From the dining area, a wooden staircase leads to the spacious mezzanine living room with a Juliet balcony offering views over the surrounding hills.

Back downstairs, a corridor leads to the bedrooms. The master suite offers an en-suite shower room and views over the terrace to the hills beyond. The second bedroom also looks over the terrace area to the countryside. There is also a family bathroom with a separate bath and a walk-in shower.

This unique property boasts mono-vaulted wooden ceilings over exposed beams and for year-round comfort there is gas central heating throughout the house and a wood burner in the kitchen - dining area which also heats the mezzanine living room. The windows and patio doors are all double-glazed.

The self-contained guest annex is separate from the main house.  It has been converted from a garage to be used as further guest accommodation, boasting its own entrance and terrace area, a kitchenette, a cosy bedroom and an en-suite shower room - perfect for when family and friends come to stay. 

The beautifully planted, well-established garden has many areas for relaxation, with shady seating areas to enjoy the surrounding natural beauty. The water feature plunge pool is the perfect place to cool off, and the babbling stream that meanders through the property and feeds into the pond completes the perfect garden oasis.

This is an idyllic spot to own a property for anyone looking for peace and tranquillity, breathtaking scenery, and living in perfect harmony with nature. There are other properties in the vicinity, but each with ample land to give plenty of privacy.

The vibrant town of Portimâo with its riverfront esplanade, shopping centres, cinemas and other amenities is only just over 20 minutes drive away, and the pretty village of Alvor with its wide selection of restaurants and its beautiful beach just a little further. The closest airport, Faro, is approximately an hour’s drive away.
