Full of character and charm, this delightful townhouse, created from two adjoining houses, has been lovingly renovated to combine traditional features with modern comforts and tasteful decorative touches. It offers two reception rooms and three en-suite bedrooms, a modern-fitted kitchen and informal dining area, as well as a private walled patio garden with citrus trees and a feature pool.
The delightful façade – with its balustrade, stone window and door frames, and traditional reixas-patterned, wooden doors and shutters – is echoed throughout the house: original wooden doors have been retained and reused; original tiled floors have been kept, where possible, to great effect; decorative mouldings feature on the high ceilings and walls.
Entering the property from the street, a high-ceilinged corridor runs through the house to the walled patio garden. At the front of the property, the passageway is flanked by an elegant and comfortable drawing room and a library, which could be used as an office or dining-room. Off the passageway, at the rear of the property, is one of the en-suite bedrooms and the open-plan dining area and kitchen, which look out onto the patio garden. The second en-suite bedroom is accessed from the dining area. At the far end of the kitchen, the master bedroom suite is housed in an attached annex with a traditional cane and wooden-beam ceiling. It has an en-suite bathroom and a sitting area that opens onto the garden.
The delightful and private courtyard garden has, as its focal point, the feature pool, with its water cascades and mirrored reflections. An orange tree and a lemon tree provide shade and, in season, heady scents and bountiful fruit. There are areas for sunbathing and for dining, a storage/laundry room and an outside shower and toilet. A stairway gives access to roof terraces and traditional ‘Quatro Águas’ roof tops.
This is a beautiful family home and/or a prime rental investment in a highly desirable location.
