Magnificent Charm In Penedo - Sintra

One of the 49 pre-finalists of the 7 Wonders of Portugal, in the Villages category, Penedo is still considered one of the most traditional villages in Sintra, possibly the most traditional of all.

Just over 50 minutes from Lisbon, Penedo is located in the Serra de Sintra, in the middle of a natural park, but little is known about the origins of the village of Penedo.

Some authors, in 1527, found references to this place in the 13th century, which also makes it one of the oldest in the country.

This property is one of the most interesting houses in Penedo, due to its location, sturdy construction, breathtaking views over Praia das Maças, timeless classical charm, superbly preserved by its current owner.

The villa is in top condition and extremely comfortable with very spacious social areas. It is suitable for permanent living (as it is today), or to be used as an income source, as the tourist demand is very high.

It has a total of 351 m2 of private gross area, distributed over the ground floor, first floor and attic. It also has a wonderful terrace with a pergola and a small garden, all with a view that extends to the sea. On the first floor,  we also have a convenient laundry space.

The ground floor is the main house entrance and the private area with 3 bedrooms and two bathrooms. On the ground floor level, we also have a convenient storage area.

On the first floor, we have the kitchen (and exterior access to the terrace), a very large living + dining area, a social bathroom and a small bedroom that can be used as a reading/playing/gaming area and also the access to the attic. The exterior terrace has an area of close to 50 m2 and is large enough to have a small pool installed or a jacuzzi, overlooking the sea, with plenty of space.

The 2nd floor is an attic, transformed into a room, with a very generous area and storage capacity on the wall sides, with 3 VELUX roof windows, a superlative view, full of sunlight. 

In addition, the property is equipped with top-of-the-range equipment. All the woodwork – kitchen, wardrobes, stairs, closets and cabinets - has been created in real wood, by request and special design, from Cozinhas de Janas. The kitchen cooker is from La Canche. The heating system is done through wall radiators and a brand-new condensation diesel boiler from ROCA, which is super efficient.
