Simply sensational. This state-of-the art estate residence is the final stages of completion.
Sitting top-high on a cascading green valley and set over 7000 m2 of lush landscaped land. This property occupies a prime and very private location.
The elevated position offers panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean, the golden beaches of Meia Praia and Porto de Mos, the mountains of Monchique and the Boa Vista Golf courses. Rooftop terraces, decks, and strategically positioned outside spaces provide the perfect platforms to soak in the sights.
The 500m2 main residence is just simply divine. An internal elevator services the 3 floors offering accessibility for people with limited mobility. The elevator services the main living quarters on the ground floor, the upstairs outside rooftop terrace and most importantly it stops in the basement level wine cellar.
The open plan kitchen drops down to the main living and inside entertainment area and offering plenty of space for hosting events and parties. This generous space opens up onto the outside deck area through 2 double glass sliding doors.
The dual function air conditioning throughout , thermal insulated windows, underfloor heating and thick solid walls keeps the property warm and cozy throughout the winter months. The log burning fire drops down from the ceiling to provide another and more traditional source of warmth.
The main kitchen is fully fitted with all modern appliances including wine fridges and is complete with a central kitchen island.
The entire estate has been designed to conserve energy and heat. 48 solar panels and batteries keeps outgoing energy costs to a minimum and the layout of the rooms and large windows allow for plenty of natural light in every room.
The main house is comprised of
: An open plan kitchen and living area featuring a beautifully crafted vaulted ceiling and a central log burning fire.

Don't be fooled by the term “Basement” this whole level opens out onto the south-facing fully landscaped gardens which are complete with two infinity rivers!
If it´s bedrooms that you need, then simply turn the spaces on this level into sleeping areas which would allow for 3 more bedrooms.
The cottage is comprised of

Again, all features in the cottage are designed to conserve energy and warmth. The sliding glass doors are double glazed and the thermal insulation keeps the heat inside. Of course, in Portugal the winters are short. In the main house and cottage on this estate, you would hardly notice them.
Both properties on the estate have benefited from a scrutinising and beady eye for detail. The outside space is no different.
The main decked area located outside the main house is fit for a wedding. The fire pit features a carved stone bench with Azulejo style tiling with plants growing from the built in beds.
The 10 x 5 metre heated infinity pool and supporting terrace and stonework lights up at night. In fact the whole outdoor terrace and deck areas are fitted with LED lighting which only showcases the full and private outdoor entertainment area.
The properties offer a mass of developed areas for parking cars. Comfortably accommodating 20 cars just a stones throw from the main house.
In short, this is an absolute paradise of a property, in an area of southwest Portugal that is simply the best in terms of lifestyle.
