Alvor/ Alcalar - Superb 4-bedroom villa with panoramic mountain views
This fabulous, three-storey, four-bedroom 725m2 villa is set in a 2000 m2 plot at the end of a cul-de-sac in the tranquil area of Alcalar, just a short drive to Portimao and Alvor, beaches, restaurants, shops, several golf courses and the international school at Porches.
Wheelchair-friendly, earthquake-proof and well-insulated, this very private villa has been thoughtfully designed and built from scratch by the current owner. The property comprises entrance hall with sweeping staircase, main living area with large fully fitted kitchen, TV snug/family room with wood-burning stove, spacious lounge/dining room with a solid oak floor, log burner and large, picture windows offering panoramic views of the Monchique Mountains. A gallery, with vaulted brick ceiling and picture window, leads to a cloakroom, an office that can be transformed into a bedroom and the en-suite master bedroom with walk-in wardrobe/dressing area. The utility room accesses an outside drying area.
The first floor, which enjoys spectacular views from two terraces, has three double bedrooms (one is en suite/two share a Jack & Jill bathroom) and a large living area/kitchenette and is virtually a self-contained, three-bedroom apartment.
The basement, with workshop/office space/storage/cloakroom, accesses the ample four-car garage and has great potential for other uses.
Covered and uncovered terraces lead into a stunning, landscaped garden including a large pond, gazebo, attractive cobblestone pathways, lush lawns and various fruit trees. The 12 x 5m heated, saltwater pool has pre-installation for an electric cover and is flanked by a pool house that conceals solar roof panels and includes a covered sitting area, BBQ, shower and storage room.
