14.200 m² Plot
Renovated in 1991
3 bedrooms, 2 kitchens and 2 bathrooms
Full of character and original features
This is a very charming traditional country house offering plenty of original features such as cane ceilings, tiled floors, wood-framed windows, a fireplace, built-in wall shelves and cupboards. It is located less than 2 kilometres outside the attractive village of Santa Bárbara de Nexe and within 15 minutes’ drive from Faro airport.
The main house comprises a living room with open fireplace, a dining room with a raised open fireplace/BBQ and built-in cupboard, a ground-floor bedroom, a kitchen with its own door to a sheltered patio, and a bathroom. Steps lead up to a second, split-level bedroom with two built-in single beds and on to the original açoteia, the 25 m² south-facing roof terrace with sea views.
The attached annex has its own private terrace at the front. From here a door leads straight into the kitchen/diner. To one side is the mosaic tiled bathroom with shower. Beyond the kitchen/diner is the bedroom with windows to the north and south.
Outside, the terraces are paved with traditional calçada cobblestones and the sheltered patio offers uninterrupted views towards the coast framed by a mature bougainvillea. Off this patio, across from the kitchen, is a storage room which could also be used as an office or a small bedroom. In front of the main door is a fixed seating area which forms a square around the water cistern.
The plot of land with its mature carob and olive trees extends to the east, west and north of the house and could be planted with further trees to create a large, private garden.
This property is a real gem of a traditional Portuguese house with enormous potential for someone with imagination to create something special, and within easy reach of all amenities and attractions of the central Algarve.
