This five-bedroom residence, on the penultimate floor, results from the fusion of a two-bedroom apartment with a three-bed. Completed in 2002, the apartment is in good condition and has been meticulously maintained and decorated by the current owners.
This stunning apartment is just 8 minutes from Funchal, at an altitude of 200m, looking down over the historic fishing port where Churchill sat and painted after World War 2. The apartment is oriented due south, with uninterrupted views of the sea from Cabo Girão to the West, to the Ilhas Desertas to the East. The views to the north, from the two terraces, are of the mountains where the most prestigious Madeira Wine grapes grow.
Basculating glass doors, that give access to the terraces around the apartment, allow the day light to enlighten the spacious reception room and also the dining area. The apartment has two access doors. One front door leads to the reception room, used as the main entrance, the other is directly to the dining area, generally used as the way out, after dinner.
Next to the reception room, on the western side of the residence, there is a laundry and two generous sized bedrooms, one of which is currently used as a workshop/atelier. They are served by a shared bathroom.
The master bedroom, with ensuite bathroom and fitted wardrobes, is located in the middle of the apartment. The two other bedrooms on the eastern side, are, at the moment, used as an office and a multipurpose room.
The reception room, the dining room, the master bedroom and the guest bedroom all have television outlets. The office and the atelier both have hard-wired Ethernet.
The kitchen, fully fitted, is adjacent to the dining room. Another bathroom adjacent to the dining room completes the accommodation. The property is currently elegantly furnished, although the furniture does not make part of the sale.
The apartment has three indoor parking places and two designated storage rooms in the underground garage.
