This outstanding private country estate with vineyard, contemporary three-bedroom main residence and four separate properties for guests and staff, is set in a magnificent 8.2 hectares plot in rolling countryside with panoramic views between the historic town of Silves and Lagoa, a few minutes’ drive from the coast, close to golf courses and international schools and just a 40-minute motorway drive to Faro International Airport.
A one-of-a-kind concept, incorporating a fusion of traditional Algarvean, rustic and fashionable, modern influences inside and out, the estate offers the ultimate in comfort, privacy and security, including a high-tech home automation system, surveillance cameras and safe room. Two hectares of red-grape varieties were planted in 2006 enabling any future owner to create their own, estate-produced wine.
Designed for a small family, the main, two-storey 1,968m2 house, with its clean, modern lines, harmoniously combines spacious rooms, large glass facades, travertine stone floors and rich walnut doors. It comprises three en-suite bedrooms (could be expanded to five), reception lounge, living room, dining room, kitchen, walk-in fridge, pantry, TV lounge, games room, seven bathrooms, drive-in storage room and an entire spa/leisure floor with sauna, Jacuzzi, infrared cabin, massage room, indoor pool and chill-out zones, gym, lounge and home cinema. A covered corridor links the house to a wine cellar. Outdoor features include a pool, extensive covered and open terraces, entertainment/bar/BBQ areas, artificial grass tennis court, Koi lake with pavilion, stone amphitheatre, riverbed and outdoor lighting.
Two refurbished and two newly constructed buildings (combined area 508.8m2), offer a total of eight bedrooms, comprise: four-bedroom, two-bathroom guest house with kitchen, living room and outdoor shower; one-bedroom, one-bathroom guest house/library with kitchen and living room, connected to main house by a bridge; staff quarters with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, two living rooms and two kitchens; high-ceilinged, two-room apartment/workshop for maintenance staff.
Cobblestone paths weave through the extensive, self-sufficient, low-maintenance grounds of integrated Mediterranean, desert and rainforest landscapes that benefit from the region’s sub-tropical climate. The estate’s unique microclimate has enabled diverse planting schemes, including fruit, vegetable and herb gardens; olive and orange tree orchards; carob tree groves; exotic palms; and many colourful, blossoming and scented indigenous Algarvean trees and bushes.
