Located on the seafront road between Cascais and Boca do Inferno, next door to the former residence of King Humberto II of Italy (now the five star hotel Vila Itália) and a 2 minute walk from the marina and centre of Cascais, this historic “Palacete” was commissioned by Frederico Guilhereme D’Orey and designed and constructed by the “brothers” Mello Breyner in 1923.
Today this Palacete is emblematic of the traditional majestic properties constructed on the Cascais coastline in the first half of the 20th Century and is unique in remaining as a private residence.
In 2005, the Palacete Frei Nicolau underwent a total and thorough restoration programme with the principal objective of maintaining the original architectural philosophy and concepts of the founder architects.
The restoration has succeeded in providing all the requirements of modern living with 21st Century bathrooms, kitchens, garages, heating and insulation whilst the structure and detail of the property has been painstakingly restored to it’s former glory by the use of original materials such as timbers and flooring. The result is a perfect combination of historical charm with modern amenities.
Every effort has been made to take advantage of the spectacular sea views from within the property and the surrounding terraces and in equal measure the restoration has sought to capture Cascais’ exceptional natural light into all rooms.
The Ground Floor has an expansive and imposing entrance hall, leading to an octagonal inner hall, a large main living room, a winter living room, all leading onto a wide sea view covered terrace. There is a WC and cloakroom as well as a large fully equipped modern kitchen and dining room which also connects with the terraces. Additionally there is a private office and full en-suite bedroom.
On the First Floor the stairs lead to a wide landing hallway giving access to 3 large suites as well as a spectacular Master Suite with private terrace and unparalleled sea views.
A private staircase leads to the top (2nd) floor which houses a full “garret” style bedroom suite of 37m2.
On the Lower Ground Floor at garden level there are 2 separate closed garages for 3 cars, various storage and technical areas, a laundry as well as kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and lounge which can suit live-in staff or be adapted as a guest suite.
