Douro River Townhouse - Massarelos

Within walking distance to the Jardins do Pálacio de Cristal and with privileged views of the Douro River, this wonderfully rebuilt luxury townhouse is the epitome of modern cosmopolitan living. 

Dating back to the 19th Century, this 4-storey home exudes pride of ownership and attention to detail. With a glass elevator servicing all four floors, private garage, central heating, PVC encased double pane windows, central vacuum, security system and home intercom, comfort features are served in equal measure of its stylish finishes.

Starting on the lower-level, an enclosed patio off the dining room and fully equipped kitchen provides sought-after privacy and green space, ideal for entertaining. The main entrance is found at street-level, with access to the garage and a guest bathroom. Living spaces are found on the ground and 1st floors, with two bedrooms featuring large built-in closets and en-suite bathrooms, with the master suite offering two sinks, a hydro massage tub and stone-encased shower.

The top floor offers an ample living room with fireplace, and riverside views from the full-length balcony. It is also worth noting the potential to expand the home, thanks to conditional Municipal approval for an additional bedroom, to be completed above the existing garage.

Design elements are wonderfully blended between modern and classic, as exemplified by the central staircase, while large windows ensure ample natural light throughout the entirety of the home. Rich natural wood is plentiful, a warm contrast to the rustic and luxurious stone finishes found in the kitchen, bathrooms and exposed metal of the home’s addition.

Whether walking along the river or taking in a concert at the nearby Super Bock Arena, this modern-twist of the classic Porto townhouse is the perfect complement to your cosmopolitan life.
