An imposing ‘Quinta Style’ main property with a separate character cottage
An absolutely unique and delightful country estate located just outside Bordeira – a quiet Portuguese village in the hills between Santa Barbara de Nexe and the market town of São Bras de Alportel.
The main house (600m2) was finished in 2001 for the current owner who also completely renovated the guest cottage adjacent, (200m2) which dates back to 1834. Commissioned by the current owner, a renowned local artist, this stunning property shows strong interior design influences from Thai, Balinese and Indian cultures. The house has an open aspect with incredible natural light, high ceilings, mezzanine spaces and designer-inspired colour.
The main house comprises an imposing open plan entrance hall and living space with a mezzanine gallery and library. Added to which is a wonderful character kitchen with all amenities, pantries and storage, a dining room, office space and of course three large bedrooms suites each with a dressing room and bathroom. The living room has a feature fireplace and a water feature with doors leading out onto the BBQ terrace, summer kitchen and extensive outdoor seating area overlooking the garden – the perfect venue for dining, entertaining and relaxing.
The guest cottage has been lovingly restored whilst retaining all its character, here there are three further bedrooms a living room, a dining room, a kitchen and two bathrooms, one of which is a cloakroom bathroom. The living area of the cottage leads out onto a courtyard with a fountain.
Exploring the garden, the eye settles on a beautiful emerald private swimming pool (12m x 6m) and by the side of it a Balinese garden pavilion for relaxing, following stone laid pathways leads to the discovery of a variety of water features.
The entire property is very secluded and private, it comprises nearly 2 acres (7760m2) of glorious landscaped gardens with many varieties of established fruit trees and shrubs – there is also a macrobiotic vegetable garden and an automatic irrigation system. The property is fenced and accessed by electric gates. A private bore-hole provides water for irrigation and to support the pool and the various water features around the property. There are far-reaching countryside views and the location makes it possible to be on the motorway (J14) within ten minutes with very fast connections to East or West Algarve and direct connection to Lisbon or Seville. Faro town and its International Airport are twenty minutes away (no flight path over the property to disturb the calm). The market town of São Bras is ten minutes away for local shopping, typical restaurants and support services.
