This is a delightful single storey villa built with loving care to the current owner's specification.
The villa is set in lush grounds on a very quiet and secluded spot with no immediate neighbours and therefore offers excellent privacy. There is a local bakery and restaurant and the nearest beaches of Vilamoura and Falesia are just a 15 minute drive away.
In need of a little modernisation, the villa is structurally very sound, having been built to exacting British specifications with fully insulated cavity walls and metal thermo clad security blinds keeping heat in and out depending on the time of the year. This makes it a fabulous all year round property.
The villa is reached down a long driveway and has a main front door into generous sized extra wide hallways, which would be suitable for anyone needing wheelchair access.
Double doors open into the lounge which has air conditioning, a feature fireplace with log burner and patio doors opening to the pool terrace. There is also a spacious dining area again with patio doors. This leads into the white fully fitted kitchen with side door.
There are three bedrooms, all with fitted wardrobes. The main bedroom has a bathroom en-suite and patio doors leading on to the pool area. Two bedrooms enjoy air-conditioning.
The villa has a bore hole so no need to worry about watering the lush grounds which have figs, orange, lemon and plum trees all around. There is a full sized extra deep 10m x 5m pool allowing you to dive in on those hot days!
Whilst it has never been a rental property, it could easily generate excellent income to supplement enjoyment of this peace and tranquillity!
Early viewing recommended.
About the area:
Loulé is famous throughout Portugal for hosting the biggest and most flamboyant Brazilian-style carnival each year before Easter. At carnival time the town is transformed into a mesmerising party of colour, music and dancing. The event attracts people from all over the Algarve who come to watch the processions and join in the festive atmosphere.
Loulé sits 12 km from the coastline of the 'Golden Triangle', an area which encompasses the luxury resorts of Vale do Lobo and Quinta do Lago.
The centre of the town is steeped in history. Its thirteenth century castle is built on an area previously settled by the Romans and its main church, Igreja Matriz de S.Clemente, was built on the site of an ancient mosque and also dates back to the thirteenth century. Loulé market hall (Mercado Municipal) is a striking landmark and an excellent example of classic Moorish architecture. It re-opened in early 2007 after a long period of renovation. Browse the town’s cobbled streets and you will see how Loulé has gained a reputation as the craft capital of the Algarve. Local handicrafts include ceramics, copperware, leatherwear, embroidered linen and tableware, quilts and lace, many of which can be purchased at the colourful Saturday gypsy market.
Some perks of owning property in Loule: Faro Airport is just 20 minutes’ drive away and is served by several low-cost airlines, it is traditional Algarve combined with modern living, just 10 minutes’ drive to the 'Golden Triangle' town of Almancil, easy access to excellent road and rail networks, close to world-renowned golf courses, a wide choice of local leisure activities for all ages including art galleries, swimming pools and a sports pavilion, a wealth of restaurants and bars serving international cuisine, traditional markets, numerous supermarkets, English-speaking banks, pharmacies, local health centres and other amenities. A new major retail outlet with Ikea and 110 shops, opening in 2017, is a short drive away, plenty of entertainment for the children in and around the area including Roma mini golf park in Vilamoura, Aquashow waterpark near Quarteira and the renowned Zoomarine centre in Albufeira.
