This simply amazing Villa of stunning contemporary design begs for a viewing in order to fully comprehend the splendour on offer.
Enviously located within a quiet neighbourhood of Villas of architectural value, the property is only a 5 minute drive or leisurely 20 minute stroll to an area of cafes and restaurants. The hustle and bustle of Portimao, one of South Portugal's largest cities is just across the glorious Rio Arade - close enough to be convenient yet far enough away to not even know it is there!
The Algarve is World famous for it's stunning beaches and picturesque scenery. Throw in 300 days of Sunshine and renowned cuisine and the full package of Portugal is complete. With countless charming towns with labyrinthine historic streets and it's many top class golf courses, coupled with adventure sports and mountains this is truly a region among Europe's finest.
Specifically the Western Algarve, where this sumptious property is located is also blessed with a culture of the outdoors. Surfers flock here year round, the World renowned Fisherman's Hiking trail begins in nearby Lagos, there are network of cycle routes and areas of protected National Park.
Starting from the front door itself, upon entry the sheer grandiose nature of design is immediately apparent. The hall provides a fitting introduction to the bright, airy and open feel to this home of epic proportion. Floor to ceiling is a mighty 2.7 metres allowing the air to circulate accordingly. Off to the left is the office / music studio / 4th bedroom - depending on the specifics of the new owner. Fitted with floor to ceiling wardrobe space and huge easy-slide patio doors with access to balcony.
The hallway itself has an abundance of storage with fitted units, and at the end shares the fireplace with the living room proper on the adjacent side. There is also a guest bathroom with shower and bidet facility. To call the ground floor ‘open plan’ is something of an understatement. As the hallway filters into this area the natural light from the South facing windows bathes the section in the Sun's warm glow. The ‘wall’ of the South side is almost entirely comprised of windows. The natural light beams in yet due to the design feature and insight of reflective slats on the exterior a comfortable temperature can be maintained in the warmest of months.
The windows dominate and offer 3 separate points of access to the outdoor area through the giant - yet light touch slide - sets of double patio doors. Indeed in one section the glass stretches all the way to the ceiling of the top floor. All the windows are triple glazed throughout and due to the top of the range sealing materials offer complete silence from the outside World when closed. Also of note are the electric one-way sunblinds that offer protection but are of a transparent nature in order to not refine the exterior view.
The kitchen area, replete with the very latest in appliance technology and the finest finishings is a delight. Featuring an cooking island / breakfast bar and a cavernous utility and larder room.
The dining area is, naturally, within the embrace of the incoming beams of golden Sun, and the lounge area has a cosy fee, in no small part to the warming qualities of the fireplace.
At the back of the lounge is the staircase of immaculate design, shielded by transparent glass.
The landing has large windows front and back, again maximising the natural light and also with more storage.
There are 2 bedrooms, North and South. One has the balcony with views of the Monchique mountains and the other overlooking the pool. Both are suites with bidet and one with bathtub. Other features of note are the floor to ceiling (again, 2.7 metres) fitted wardrobes and patio doors to glass railinged balconies.
The Master bedroom is simply incredible. Windowed top to bottom to the South and East and of a massive scale, with access to the balcony facing South and West. Opulence is not a word to be used lightly but the sleeping quarters are just the start! The back of the room has a separation to the vast confines of the dressing room which, in turn, provides pathway to the sensational en-suite.
Of immediate notice is the sunken, jet massage, bathtub with view West out the window. Amazingly, there is also a Sauna room in here, and the walk-in shower room also functions as a Turkish steam room!
Important to note are the ‘blackout’ electric blinds guaranteeing an uninterrupted slumber.
There is yet more to this special house in the form of the downstairs basement area. An elegant staircase reveals the space currently facilitated as an ‘Entertainment Zone’. The open plan comprises lounge area with indoor BBQ of specific design with chimney that forbids any escape of smoke into the room. Utilising the space further the constructor added a full kitchen and banquet area.
The other side of the basement could be used in its traditional sense as a garage with space for multiple cars or as it currently functions as a games room.
This underground section is serviced by a large bathroom, understair storage, boiler room and various portals allowing natural light to penetrate.
The Villa has solar panelling servicing the 500 litre water tank, pre-installation for underfloor heating, ‘built in’ Air Conditioning throughout, central vacuum system, triple glazing. It is completely modernised and can be controlled via your smart phone!
The outdoor area comprises of a large pool with an easy conversion for heating, with sophisticated non-slip wood surround, terraced BBQ space with sink and modest lawn and landscaped garden.
The property is accessible via a curved automated security gate.
The Villa is close to the local Municipality athletics track and a soon to be completed golf course nearby.
The size of the Villa and design would provide an excellent high end option for golfing groups to capitalise on the thriving Algarvian rental market or families used to a certain way of living. Coupled with it's proximity to the beautiful riverside fishing village of Ferragudo and the city of Portimao the rentability is obvious.
