Full Description:

Beautifully Restored 5 Bed, 4 Bath Quinta with Living Room, Dining Room, Snug, Kitchen/Breakfast Room, Pool and Grounds of 19070m2.

This beautifully restored and extended old Quinta, was rebuilt during 2003.  Surrounded by wonderful gardens, a large lawn, and using large local rocks to create interesting varying levels, the house stands elevated on a hillside in 19070m2 of grounds and enjoys spectacular views.
Currently the house is a large family home, with 5 bedrooms, 4 bath/shower rooms, utility room, large kitchen/breakfast room, lounge, diningroom, study/snug, and gallery/library.  The house has been designed so as to offer a separate private downstairs apartment if required.  With its stone walls and timber beamed ceilings, wooden floors upstairs, a polished calcada lounge floor and locally glazed floor tiles this is a completely unique and stylish house.  Large double sided glass log fires in both the lounge/kitchen and dining room/study keep the house warm and cosy in the winter, the thick walls which offer insulation in winter also mean that the house remains cool in the summer.  The property has many stunning features, including a bathroom with a vaulted ceiling, galleried living area and copper sinks.
The propety benefits from : Mains 3 phase electricity, borehole water (204) m deep; mains water is available, but has not been connected.  Soak-away septic tank.  Three hot water immersion heaters, which can be switched off depending on occupancy.  Water softener.  Electric entrance gates and ample parking.  Satellite TV, two landline phones.  Entirely double-glazed with mosquito net screens.  Fully insulated with cork, and wall cavity insulation in the newer part of the property.  The original house walls are half a metre thick.  The roof is tiled with local Santa Catarina roof tiles.  All timber used in the construction has been imported from Germany and is fully treated.  The garden is fully irrigated.
The Pool is 11m x 6m and is tiled in sand-coloured mosaics.  The \\\'beach\\\' offers easy access for either children or the less agile (no ladder required) and there is a built-in bench in the deep end of the pool.  The pump house is located under the pool and is accessed by steps.  It has two filtration pumps and plenty of storage space.  The gardens were designed and constructed at the same time as the building of the house, the main feature being the giant rocks, which were excavated from the land.  Mature trees inlude carob, olive and fig.  Shrubs and perennial ground cover create a profusion of colour thoughout the year.  Easily maintained, and fully irrigated, the garden can be enjoyed without back-breaking weeding.  Half of the land belonging to the Quinta is cultivated, with a further 10,000m2 left to nature.
