This lovely large single storey property is located in a very tranquil location in the foothills of Monchique. In close proximity is the very beautiful freshwater reservoir of Bravura (perfect for hikers and nature lovers) and not far away is the internationally acclaimed Portimao Autodrome. There is very easy accessibility to the motorway and main roads and only a 25 minute drive to Lagos & beaches, Portimao and the Monchique mountains.

This private villa is set in its own gated and fully fenced 5,600m2 plot. A double entrance gate opens to a long gravel driveway leading to the villa. The front door opens to welcome you into the main living area with an efficient centrally placed wood-burning fire and windows overlooking the front garden area. Adjacent to the front door to the left is a small storage room with window, which could be used as third bedroom or as an office/study. The kitchen is just off the living area and is fully fitted with ample traditional style units. A separate door opens into the first bedroom which is a double and has lovely views towards the surrounding countryside and pool. The en-suite has a large walk in shower.

Bedroom 2 is a very spacious double with full width, fully fitted wardrobes and lovely views out towards the surrounding countryside. Next to the bedroom is a small hall with a large en-suite - comprising bath and overhead shower. From the hallway there is an exterior door out towards the pool area and there is a poolside sitting room with wood-burning fire and large patio doors opening out onto the pool and terrace area.

At the rear of the property is a detached and useful workshop. The gardens are easy maintenance and include various fruit trees, shrubs and a pretty front lawn.

This property could be a wonderful and tranquil holiday home, or indeed the perfect permanent residence. The property has a paddock area which could also be suitable for keeping horses or there may be an opportunity for a project. It is realistically priced for a quick sale.
