Just five minutes from Loulé and you find yourself in the relaxing country side. We went to see the house early April and the garden was filled with the scent of flowers in bloom! As you can see on the pictures, this creates a magical atmosphere. The garden has been laid to lawn for a large part and has been landscaped with various flowering plants around the pool area. On the grounds are further many indigineous trees, such as: lemon trees, almond, fig, alfarrobeira (carob) and many palm trees. The garden is low maintenance and its size offers the house privacy. The whole plot is fenced and there is a second gate for the gardeners to enter the plot.
The electric gates open onto a large calçada drive way, with ample parking space and a carport for parking in the shade. The house which was renovated in 2003, has a large hall with a rustic stair case to the first floor. To the left there is the study/5th bedroom, followed by the lounge with fire place. From the lounge doors open onto a sheltered terrace, where one can sit/eat outside all year round.
There is also a guest wc and a storage cupboard in the hall from where one arrives into the large & light fully fitted kitchen and the adjacent dining room. The utility room with washing machine & clothes dryer is well located just off the kitchen and has a door opening onto the patio. The boiler for the gas central heating system is also located here. There is central heating with radiators throughout the property. All floors are laid with the same ceramic terracotta coloured tiles, creating a sense of space. The ceilings on the ground level are high and the walls are thick, so the house keeps nice and cool in the hot summer months.
This farmhouse is exceptional because of its' size. There are four very good sized bedrooms on the first floor: two bedrooms with bathrooms en suite and two bedrooms sharing a family bathroom. The entire roof has been fully replaced recently and is now very well insulated, hence the C on the energy certificate!
In the garden on the south side of the house there is a 5 x 10 m swimming pool with extensive terracing around and a pergola for shade in summer. There is also a tennis court with low level lighting on the grounds.
A very complete, renovated large Quinta in the country side at only minutes' from Loulé and at about 15min from the beach. Great as a residential home or a holiday retreat!
