Imposing Family Home
This imposing family home is situated close to Silves yet only 40 minutes from the airport. Silves, the ancient ‘Moorish’ capital of the Algarve, is a popular location with its striking castle, charming old town, boulevards and selection of bars, restaurants and shops.
Built in 1995 by ‘Portagoa’, the house has been constructed to exacting standards and specifications required by its current owners. This impressive property is approached by a long calçada driveway lined with trees and shrubs. The house itself is surrounded by one of the most wonderful gardens, professionally designed and landscaped with an overall ambience of peace, tranquillity and total privacy. The gardens have been created with an abundance of indigenous trees and shrubs, sweeping lawns, a water garden consisting of five cascading pools and secret niches giving an ‘English Garden’ feel. The boules pitch and original bread oven add an extra dimension to this engaging area in a secluded country setting yet only one kilometre from the main road.
The main entrance to the property reveals a spacious library and music room with imposing staircase leading to a minstrel’s gallery. The elegant drawing room, with Fogo Montanha and French doors leading to shaded terraces, sets the gracious style completely. The farmhouse style kitchen has maple wood units with ample granite working surfaces and various discerning features, such as a vaulted brick ceiling and central island. Space also allows for a family dining area for informal meals. A formal dining room is adjacent to the kitchen and has a wood-burning stove. Accessed from the kitchen is an office, utility room leading to an inner courtyard.
The master bedroom suite is on the first floor and comprises a superb full bathroom, spacious bedroom and dressing room. A ‘Juliet’ balcony offers beautiful views of both the garden and valley beyond. The further three double bedrooms, all ensuite, are at ground level of the villa.
The private swimming pool and its surrounding terraces are stunning. Special attention to detail has not been spared here either with a fantastic BBQ area and an en suite changing room. Rarely do we come across such empathy and understanding given to an outside area with shaded enclaves of bougainvillea and honeysuckle covered pergolas. Walk a few more metres and the vista changes yet again. This is a superbly landscaped garden offering so many areas in which to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet.
This bespoke 'Quinta' exudes quality and style and must surely be the choice of a discerning purchaser who will appreciate its creation and concept successfully achieved by its current owners over the last few years. It also has the major benefit of being in close proximity to an International School, and the new golf courses at Amendoeira and Silves.
Seldom do we have the privilege to offer a property of this calibre and quality set on a plot of 23,690m2; therefore we recommend an early viewing.
