This wonderful traditional style villa is in a stupendous position in Goldra with views sweeping from Monchique hills to Moncarapcho with the Atlantic Ocean sparkling in the distance. From this lofty position high above the rest of the world the only sounds to be heard are an occasional faint hum of reality and the chirping of the birds. If you are looking for somewhere to get away from it all and yet be only a few minutes drive from civilization should you need to return, then this property is a must see. Access is gained to this villa from a tarmac road. The gates leading into the property are electric, as is the door to the large single garage. The front garden consists of the calçada driveway with a large amount of parking space, some lawn, and wonderful established palm trees. From the moment that one enters the grounds one is struck by a feeling of complete peace and tranquillity that can only come with being high up above the hustle and bustle of daily life. It is almost a feeling of detachment, and yet towns and villages are within sight below. The entrance to the home is on the ground floor. To the right of the foyer is a private en-suite bedroom. It is a generous bedroom with patio doors onto the front garden. The bathroom features a large shower cubicle, heated towel rail, and tiled floor and walls. Take the stairway in the foyer up to the primary living area on the first floor. The living area consists of two large adjoining rooms, both of which would function perfectly as either the lounge or the dining room. One end of these conjoined rooms features full length windows through which one enjoys the views over the swimming pool and beyond, down to the sea. The patio doors open onto the terraces surrounding the swimming pool. Two further en-suite bedrooms are housed on the first floor. Both are double rooms and both feature fitted wardrobes made of wood, terraces, and baths with shower facilities. There is also a separate guest W.C on this floor. Staying on the first floor one finds a generous laundry room with ample space for machines and more. The fitted kitchen is adequately large for a table and chairs and features: walk in pantry, fridge freezer, dish washer, electric oven, and a hob using both gas and electricity. A back door leads from the kitchen onto the south facing patio and lawn. The majority of the two tiered gardens is on the level of the first floor living area. The large chlorine swimming pool is L shaped and features a Jacuzzi at the foot. It is heated via a system that uses both solar and diesel powers. There is plentiful terrace surrounding the pool that enjoys the breathtaking views, and further terrace off the kitchen and living area features a brick built BBQ and al fresco dining area. Taking the final staircase will lead you to the top (second) floor which is reserved solely for the master suite. The accompanying large bathroom features a bath with shower facilities and heated towel rail. This generous suite is enhanced by double patio doors opening onto a very large terrace with the south west views enjoyed from much of the house. This house is powered by a new solar and diesel system which provides central heating and hot water. There is air conditioning throughout the entire house providing both coolness and warmth. Water comes from a borehole via a cisterna, and a septic tank system is in place. This glorious older style property oozes character in a way that many new builds simply cannot. It is in a wonderful location - with a scattering of neighbours and yet completely private, and within easy reach of Loulé town centre, Faro and its airport, and the many magnificent local beaches and golf courses that central Algarve has to offer.
