A traditional Algarve villa on a large, fully fenced plot. situated in a peaceful, international semi-rural community.
This gorgeous, detached home blends effortlessly with the landscape, surrounded by orange groves and around 20-minute drive to the coast and 10 minutes to the towns of Tunes or Paderne.
Built in the 1990s, the layout and character are reminiscent of a time when quality and space were prerequisites for family homes. On the ground floor is a large living room, centred around a brick-built fireplace. There’s a separate circular dining room with space for up to 10 diners and a large, fully equipped breakfast kitchen with laundry and storage adjacent.
Many of the rooms and design elements draw on a Moorish influence, with the use of curves, tall conical chimneys, whimsical in-built furniture, barbeque, balustrades, and a dining pergola.
Internally, there are two bedrooms sharing a family bathroom. Both have integrated wardrobes, and one leads to the terrace with the pool beyond.
Rising to the first floor, there are two large bedrooms, both with wardrobe storage and sharing a large family bathroom. Both first-floor bedrooms lead to a private terrace, with the principal room enjoying a stunning patio area leading to an office/atelier and a timber staircase down to the pool area.
The pool area itself enjoys great sun exposure. There is a covered dining area and a traditionally terracotta-tiled pool deck with enough space for dining and entertaining, leading to lush gardens with indigenous trees and planting.
The house has a one-bedroom annexe with an open-plan lounge, perfect for family or friends. There are various outbuildings, a large driveway with a carport, and further land potentially suitable for a small holding.
