The first of the bedroom accommodation will be found in the “guest wing” which contained two large double bedrooms each with their own built in wardrobes and vanity alcoves. These bedrooms share a large bathroom with bath, built in shower, wash hand basin unit, toilet and bidet.
Also on the Ground Floor is a double bedroom currently used as a study which was converted from the original garage. This was originally converted to enable the villa to be rented as a 4 bedroom let keeping the owner’s suite as a separate locked unit. Any new owner has the opportunity to retain this or easily convert back to a garage unit.
Across the hallway from this room is another toilet and shower room which is used for anyone staying in that bedroom or for visitors to the house to use.
The Kitchen and Laundry room beyond underwent complete refurbishment in recent years. Built in units throughout with black solid marble worktop and central stainless steel hob ventilation give a pleasing appearance to what is a very practical working kitchen.
Sandwiched between the Kitchen and a Laundry is a separate walk-in Larder with (as you are in Portugal) the inevitable “Wine Cellar” wall as well as ample shelving for food storage.
Externally to the Kitchen is a 5m x 5m roofed barbeque with large double charcoal barbeque housed internally to the area. An 8 seater fibre glass, glass topped table provides ample summer eating facility, curtained by tall Banana Palms with fantastic views of the garden, pool and mountains beyond. A perfect way to dine and watch the setting sun!
A winding but ample staircase set within the Moorish tower takes us to the First Floor which houses the further bedrooms. Lighting hidden within the tower dome and concealed floor lighting give an added ambience to the stairwell.
Firstly another large Double Bedroom with built in wardrobes and vanity alcove but with a view from its windows across the palmed garden and pool to the valleys and mountains beyond. This bedroom has its own dedicated bathroom and toilet containing bath with shower, basin unit, toilet and bidet.
At the end of the corridor is the entrance into the Master Bedroom Suite. The Master Bedroom is very large with French windows to its own balcony again enjoying views to the garden, surrounding countryside and mountains beyond. Bird feeders on this balcony attract flocks of a very special local resident, the Tanzanian Lovebirds which have clearly escaped from a well-known local zoological attraction some years ago and now nest locally to Casa Mistral!
An archway from the Master Bedroom leads into the private Dressing Room with two walls of built in wardrobes and a vanity alcove. This room also has dedicated balcony through French windows from where there are distant sea views.
From the Dressing Room a door leads to a large and luxurious bathroom with built in circular tiled shower, steps up to a sunken corner bath, twin hand basins set in marble, toilet, bidet and the whole room (floor and walls) tiled in marble.
Trees are an important part of the garden with palms, fir and eucalyptus trees featuring in both front and back gardens. The eucalyptuses are nearly 25 years old and some 30 metres in height making them local landmarks! The fir trees form a small forest at one side of the rear garden giving ample logs for use in the villa fire when trimmed.
The front garden has a lily covered pond with annual flowers in abundance and a host of resident frogs!
The rear garden features the 12 metre by 5 metre swimming pool which is heated and has only recently been completely retiled and renovated. At the end of the pool is the mural featured wall which behind houses the pool pump house and wood store.
Beyond the pool is the all-weather surface tennis court enclosed in its own netted area.
The garden is highlighted by palmed “islands” giving feature and character to the garden all set around extensive kikuyu grassed lawns.
However, everyone’s favourite garden feature seems to be one of the latest additions which is a 7metre by 5 metre African thatched Jacuzzi house which contains a large hot tub Jacuzzi and is surrounded by internal garden seated areas perfect for relaxation out of the hot summer sun. The “Africa House” is complete with ambience lighting and sound to play relaxing and mood music, as well as a large colonial fan in the vaulted roof. The Jacuzzi faces onto the poolside.
Probably the children’s favourite is the specifically built 6 metre, two decked Pirate ship, the Black Pearl, beached at the bottom of the Mistral land, beyond the fir forest.
Near the poolside is additionally an 8 metre curved pergola containing a full sized table tennis table enabling games to be played in the shade.
Casa Mistral is a very secure and private property. The main entrance gates may only be accessed by internal TV monitored access unit or personal fob.
The entire property has an electronic security system directly connected to a central control system which is subject to immediate police or emergency service notification, and is surrounded by security fencing and where this opens to public land the fencing is of very high security nature.
There are a number of very special tiled murals around the house and garden. These murals were painted and signed by Katherine Swift, probably one of the Algarve’s most famous tile painters, back in 1992, specifically for Casa Mistral. Tragically Katherine died in her forties of cancer and as a result these murals are now unique and irreplaceable. They are in every sense precious!
You will find the first of these at the entrance gate to Mistral and the second at the main entrance door. Another adorns the face of the Bar whilst another three are the main feature of the pool area where her depiction of the old Algarve and the mountains beyond still make the onlooker feel they are peering through the arched windows of a centuries old castle.
Casa Mistral comes with every modern facility from satellite TV to telephone internet connection. Mobile telephone coverage is very strong.
Satellite dishes in the front garden currently provide all UK BBC, ITV and Sky programmes which are available in two positions in the Lounge and one in the upstairs Master Bedroom suite.
The cinema system previously described will provide TV and games systems onto the large cinema screen with accompanying sound systems.
Casa Mistral has the ability to attract high rental incomes for those wishing to use the property for investment as well as pleasure purposes. Short term holiday rentals throughout the year could have the earning capacity of up to 50,000 euros per year.
