Located on the outskirts of the quaint village of Garvao and nestled between rolling hills and cork trees you will find Monte Da Monchica.
Completed in 2004, this traditionally styled Portuguese villa offers numerous beautiful architectural features. Rustic elements of the design have been fused with a modern flair as seen in the newly fitted bathrooms. The house comprises of a spacious open plan kitchen/dining area with double-height ceiling looking up to the mezzanine area in the roof.
Each of the 3 large bedrooms offer newly fitted (July 2020) en suite bathrooms and direct access to outside. Upon entering the property you are immediately greeted by the impressive stone built central chimney breast, when viewed from the living room the striking feature of the hearth and wood burning stove truly become a focal point of the house. A wonderful place to relax and enjoy a glass of wine on a cool evening.
Adjacent to the hearth is a charming wrought iron spiral staircase connecting to the mezzanine level. This space runs the full length of the property and could easily be converted into a further two rooms and so creating a 4/5 bedroom property (contacts for a local English speaking builder can be provided if this idea is of interest).
Double doors from the living area and rear bedrooms lead onto the large patio area ideal for sunbathing, outdoor sitting, and dining areas. The patio receives the sun from the early afternoon and on into the evening, a perfect place to watch the sunset as it dips behind the olive trees and surrounding hills. A stunning 10m x 5m tiled swimming pool provides that much needed opportunity to cool off, play with the children and is of a design & size that allows you to have a meaningful swim. The subterranean pool house houses the newly installed (July 2020) pool pump and control panels.
The land to the rear has a flowing stream running the length of the plot (during the rainy seasons). The entire 4.2 acre plot is fenced and contains numerous productive olive trees. The property benefits from its own bore hole that supplies the water needed by the house. The night sky in this location due to its seclusion and lack of light pollution allows you to imagine you are in a planetarium and is truly breathtaking.
Although benefiting from a fantastic level of seclusion, privacy and not being overlooked by neighbouring properties, you do not feel isolated as only a short 4 minute walk away lies the quaint and sleepy village of Garvao.
Still retaining all the charm of rural Portugal, Garvao offers several cafes/restaurants, mini market, bakery, post office, pharmacy and hardware shop. The local train station with direct routes to the Algarve and Lisbon is only a short 5 minute drive away.
A larger supermarket, shops, cafes/restaurants and all the usual amenities can be found a short 10 min drive away in the town of Ourique. The airport at Faro is a 70 minute drive away (if keeping to the speed limit), Albufeira is 1 hour away and Lisbon is a drive of 1 hour and 50 minutes. The main roads and motorways recently constructed provide an excellent and speedy route to the resorts and shopping centres found on the Algarve.
