This incredible 5 bedroom, 5 bathroom villa is located in the private, gated, 24 hour security luxury estate of Goldra.
The villa sits at the very top of the development and probably enjoys the best views of the Algarve - spectacular 180 degrees to the coastline.
The villa itself is impressively grand yet beautifully welcoming as a family home.
There is a large feature turret on the property which allows light into the ground floor and a massive terrace area at the top of the villa maximising on those views - perfect for a party both day and night!
There is a brand new high quality double aspect fitted kitchen which again makes the most of those views! Quality new floor tiles to this area give it the wow factor. There is also an adjoining breakfast room with wall mounted TV and patio doors. One of the bathrooms on the ground floor has just been refitted and there is a partly completed 'granny annex' with invalid access offering a further bedroom, bathroom and living area.
All the bedrooms are south facing with fitted wardrobes - two are upstairs and three downstairs. The lounge/dining area has three sets of patio doors leading out to the heated pool, terrace and uniquely tiled covered bar area. There is also a study/office on the ground floor.
The mature gardens have a fully automatic irrigation system supplied by the borehole. There is also a 4 panel solar system for domestic hot water with electric back up thermostat. The grounds have some 19 species of palm trees and other rare trees (including a 'monkey don't climb' tree!) and shrubs and also includes a water feature with cascades, lagoons and several main ponds which are stocked with a large (1500+) selection of Koi carp, many imported from Singapore.
The property really has to be seen - especially those views - to be fully appreciated.
About the area:
Goldra is close to the charming village of Santa Barbara de Nexe, which is perhaps best known for its bell tower, a landmark sitting on top of a 400-year-old white walled church which can be seen from miles away. It serves as inspiration for many artists who've painted it and its beautiful surroundings.
The village itself, which is set on the site of a Bronze Age hill fort, has most essential facilities including newsagents, a market, a post office and a large supermarket as well as a number of restaurants and bars.
During the day, you can take a gentle stroll through the village, admiring its Gothic architecture or venture further afield to the rolling countryside and surrounding villages.
Beaches and larger tourists attractions are just a short drive away, as is Faro Airport. In Santa Barbara de Nexe you're in a very convenient location to explore the best of the Algarve.
