DescriptionBuilt from a traditional and picturesque farm house on the outskirts of Moncarapacho, this charming algarvian quinta with 5 bedrooms is a fabulous retreat for those who fancy an authentic southern mediterranean lifestyle. Benefiting from the owner's exceptional sense of art and style, the property features the best of the algarvian traditional architecture, with mauresque inspiration, but recreating it with unique pieces from Bali and Morroco, such as wooden doors and hand-painted tiles, used freely around the property's floor, bathrooms and kitchen.
A few of the most striking features are the very high double ceiling entrance hall and lounge area, the fabulous covered terraces and a full living room with fireplace on the first floor. On this level, a large terrace with plenty of sitting area and barbecue boasts fabulous views to the coastline and also the countryside; a grand orange grove surrounds the property, with an iberian zest to it.
A direct access has been conceived to the quite unique swimming pool in green granite, which favours the action of the sun during summer, naturally heating the water to a lukewarm temperature.
On the ground floor, the fully equiped kitchen also has a two-faced fuego-montana fireplace and an adjacent guest cloakroom.
The generous master bedroom is located on the ground-floor next to the kitchen area and with direct access to the garden.
The four guest bedrooms all-en suite, are aligned to one aisle allowing privacy to the hosts.
The property also features a full size atelier, which can be converted into a living room, library or even a studio.
A large basement also accomodates plenty of storage room, the technical room and wine cellar.
The villa has been finished to a very high standard, featuring underfloor heating and cooling, central ducted air-conditioning and solar pannels to heat domestic waters.
The property possesses its own borehole and a substantial cisterna, providing water in abundance.
A true must-see if one is looking for a unique and private getaway retreat, still at 3 minutes from a picturesque village in the Eastern Algarve and the paradise-like beaches of the Ria Formosa, like Fuseta.
