Main House - 5 bedrooms plus guest suite
A cascading water feature leads from the cobblestone driveway with plenty of parking to the entrance hall which flows to the open-plan kitchen and dining room with large doors to the covered terrace. The kitchen has granite work tops, a gas range and a separate utility room. Adjacent is the elegant lounge with doors to the covered terrace and windows overlooking the water feature. There is a fireplace to snuggle around in winter, although the whole house has energy efficient central heating to keep you warm. On the ground floor are 2 bedrooms, both with sliding doors to the gardens and en-suite shower rooms. One has a picture window from which you can lie in bed and watch the castle lights. The lobby between the bedrooms has been transformed into a compact office space.
Upstairs are 3 more bedrooms all with sloped ceilings and skylights to enjoy the starry sky. There is a family bathroom with double vanity, soaker tub and walk in shower.
Off the lounge and dining room is a spacious covered entertainment area with BBQ zone, preparation station, bar, fridge and dishwasher to make the most of outdoor living and maximise enjoyment of the fantastic views. There is space for lounging and dining here on the terrace, as well as another more secluded relaxing area overlooking the lake. Steps from the covered terrace wind down to the natural swimming lake with jetty for sunbathing as well as to the sunken outdoor lounge with firepit and views over the lake and castle.
From the covered terrace is the completely private 6th bedroom, also with an en-suite shower room.
From the sunken lounge a path flows to the swimming pool zone, with shower room and changing area, bar and covered terrace. Adjacent is the children's play area with climbing equipment, manicured lawns and plenty of space to run around.
This property has been designed to the highest standards with your every comfort taken care of. For peace of mind there are shutters to close off the covered entertainment area from the garden making it easy for guests to close the house at night. The lake is fenced to keep it safe for children.
Extras are numerous and include solar panels for hot water, satellite dish, central heating and air conditioning to mention just a few. Traditional features include high vaulted ceilings, exposed wooden beams and Santa Catarina tiles throughout. The generous use of skylights keeps the house light.
Independent Guest Annex
The one bedroom guest annex is set in its own grounds, adjacent to the main house, with a separate entrance. The accommodation was developed using the mobile living concept to showcase the use of shipping containers and is a completely unique space. It uses floor to ceiling glass to connect indoors and outdoors with a great flow between the two. The garden is completely fenced for privacy and there is a plunge pool in case guests do not want to visit the main house.
The property would make an excellent family home with plenty of space for guests. It also has an excellent rental history and so would be a good investment property.
Just 2 minutes drive from the medieval town of Silves with restaurants, bars and shops, 15 minutes from beaches, 10 minutes to golf and 45 minutes from Faro airport.
