Golden opportunity to acquire a pristine property that is already established with well-maintained equestrian facilities.
This property is located just minutes outside Tavira, combining easy access to local amenities with peace and tranquillity of the countryside.
Access to the property is along a flat, dirt track off the main road. Whilst not isolated, its elevated position, gives the property both privacy and fantastic views along the valley and out over the neighbouring hills.
A typical Portuguese-style calçada driveway takes you through electric gates down at the road up to the main house. There is a double garage at the top of the driveway and plenty of additional space for parking.
The property was designed with the expansive views in mind and as such has the main living areas up on the first floor. The spacious kitchen is fully fitted with new, quality appliances and has ample work and storage space. The kitchen opens out onto a lovely shaded terrace with space for both dining and relaxing. Back inside the villa, the kitchen leads through to the dining room and on into the generous lounge on the one side and opens towards the laundry/utility room and two of the bedrooms on the other.
The living room is filled with natural light from the patio windows and doors that showcase the scenery and open up onto a balcony running the width of the room.
The master bedroom has an en suite bathroom, fitted wardrobes and its own balcony, whilst the second bedroom on this floor has a separate bathroom and a stand-alone wardrobe.
The upper floor, which could be used as an independent annex/guest quarters, can be accessed from the outside via stairs up from the terrace outside the kitchen or via the internal staircase. This floor comprises a small kitchen/dining area, 2 bedrooms and a large separate bathroom. Another covered terrace provides more stunning vistas and adds to the choice of outside seating areas.
The pool area, on the lower level, provides another fantastic outside area for entertaining. There is a designated covered BBQ area, a substantial covered terrace for seating/dining and more than enough space poolside to relax in the sun. There is also an additional bathroom on this level, which is very practical.
The property comes with a substantial amount of land, however, only the land in the close vicinity of the villa has been fenced off and landscaped with an array of native plants and trees. This mature garden has been set up with an automatic irrigation system.
The equestrian facilities can be found at the bottom of the property on the other side of the track. An electric gate provides access to the land, which consists of various marked-out paddocks and an arena for the horses. The fields are automatically irrigated with agricultural water (which is also pumped up and used in the house) and there are a number of self-filling troughs set up around the fields. The stables are at one end of the arena, together with a tack room and hay shed. There is plenty of space available to expand the stables/shelters if required.
A lot of time, energy, hard work and love have been put into this property to make it what it is today and it would be hard to find another property in such a great location with such well-established facilities.
