Full description:

Set in an established residential area of Funchal within walking distance of the old town, and only 5 minutes drive from Palheiro Golf, this elegant Villa is characterized by its simple but unique layout. The house was originally built around 1939, totally renovated in 2005, and has been maintained to a very high standard by its current owners who have added a modern touch to contrast with the classical details.

The main door opens up to a spacious hall with a solid wooden floor, which is present in all rooms, and has a mix of contemporary and classical art pieces. The living area, to the left, has a red sofa and an oriental style coffee table that match the rest of the interior decoration. The elegant dining room, one wall clad with mirrors, follows before you enter the kitchen, fully fitted with modern appliances.

A games room/library, a conservatory which has been turned into a office, and a guest WC complete the accomodation on this floor.

All bedrooms, with generous areas, are on the upper floor. The master bedroom with ensuite bathroom has a private balcony facing towards the city centre and the ocean. The other two bedrooms have a shared bathroom.

This historical villa, which still has its original stone walls, features an exterior jacuzzi, and a hand-crafted outside dining table located to the south-west of the house, where you can enjoy the view of the sunset over the old town and city, whilst having a late meal. The exterior paving features 'calçada portuguesa', typical drawings made with small basalt stones and, in this case, contrasting with white marble pebbles.

This historical villa has a garage space underneath the front terrace, and a second vehicle access to the east onto the ground floor level.

A charming and inviting property!

About ImoPalheiro Lda, Palheiro Estate, Madeira

The Palheiro Estate

Located on a prime hilltop site overlooking the sophisticated capital of Funchal, the 130 hectare Palheiro Estate, has grown from an early 19th century hunting lodge and summer retreat for nobility into a sophisticated, low density resort destination.

Palheiro benefits from an unrivalled location, on the one hand its elevated position gives stunning views over the city and harbour, yet it is only ten minutes by car to the city centre, with its elegant mix of historic buildings and modern shopping. On the other hand, it is only fifteen minutes to the international airport, with direct flights to over 40 European destinations.


Madeira is a small island (50 km long) located 900 km. south-west of Portugal and 600 km. off the North African coast.

For over 200 years, Europe's elite have been drawn to the archipelago of Madeira, enjoying the reliable, year-round fine weather and dramatically beautiful landscapes. The waters surrounding the island are warm and the winding coastline provides many opportunities to enjoy them. Savvy second home purchasers are aware that Madeira, which can be easily reached in around three hours via direct flights from the UK, Ireland and mainland Europe, is an ideal alternative to long haul destinations for sun seekers, offering year round rental opportunity as well as a superb second home location.
