Enjoying panoramic sea views is this splendid 3 bedroom villa with pool, set in over an acre of beautiful landscaped gardens, located in the hills just north of Faro and close to Santa Barbara de Nexe.

This very private single storey house lies in a beautiful rural location on the Cerro de Guelhim hill, with fabulous panoramic country and sea views over Estoi and Faro.

Built in 2007, the property was designed with all the modern conveniences and easy maintenance in mind. Featuring 4,000m2 of landscaped gardens, a well stocked fish pond with a lovely bubbling waterfall, an orchard and of course the beautiful swimming pool with sun-drenched terraces, the exterior immediately lends an air of both glamour and comfort. There is also a nice shady double car port as well as a big area of traditional calcadas to the front of the house with ample space for parking or even for a motor home.

Inside, the house is fitted with every conceivable convenience and luxury: high ceilings and picture windows and patio doors which create a light, open and airy atmosphere. There are electric shutters, double glazing and mosquito screens on all the patio doors and windows. There are heat / AC units in every room and there is under floor heating throughout.

The entry hall has a built in wardrobe for jackets, with shelves for hats, bags and accessories, and sliding racks for shoes. The bar is a beautiful recessed nook with shelves and space for a drinks fridge and wine rack. This could also easily be used as a discrete office space.

The dining area is large enough for a table for ten, with space left over for a dresser and sideboard. The feature ceiling has a centrally raised area and a multi-way dimming lighting system.

The sunken living room is a couple of steps down from the dining room and features a beautiful fireplace with a marble base and mantle. There is a fabulous built-in glass display cabinet with recessed lighting between the living and dining areas.

The French windows lead from the living room to the terrace and swimming pool and offer fantastic panoramic views over the Estoi valley.

The fully fitted kitchen includes a large island and breakfast bar, and plenty of counter and cabinet space. The appliances are built in and include an oven, top-of-the-range hob, dishwasher and refrigerator. There is an additional pantry for storage, which is large enough for an additional fridge and freezer.

There are three large double bedrooms. The master bedroom has French windows leading to the pool terrace and has wonderful views to the ocean. There are fully fitted and mirrored wardrobes with automated interior lighting, and a master bathroom with a big walk-in shower. The bathroom has a beautiful and unusual tile finish.

The guest bedroom also has fitted wardrobes, a big picture window with views across the hillside, and an en-suite bathroom complete with bath and shower.

The third bedroom is currently used as an office. It has patio doors leading to the pool terrace, fitted wardrobes and a bathroom with shower adjacent.

Additional interior features of the villa include a laundry room with a large stone sink, fitted cabinets and an airing cupboard, giving plenty of storage for household linens and cleaning items. The hallway between the bedrooms includes one entire wall of built in storage cabinets and book case, plus there is another double storage cupboard in the hallway to the third bedroom.

The house is wired with a complete security and alarm system which includes a video-entry at the front gate. The electric gates can be controlled from both inside the house and by remote control fobs. As part of the Safe Communities Algarve network, the property is numbered and emergency services can be reached by calling a dedicated number for convenience.

From a practical perspective, there is a spacious pump room and work shop built in under the main terrace, which includes a giant fitted workbench and table, as well as plenty of space for storing garden furniture and sports equipment.

There is a separate pump room for the swimming pool, and a large shed and wood store. A separately fenced pen is suitable for dogs or could be used for a vegetable garden. The solar panel for hot water is discretely placed between the boundary fence and a row of trees and bushes.

This charming villa was especially designed to conserve and recycle water. Water for the house is from the borehole and there is a dedicated cistern. A second cistern is for the automated irrigation, and is fed by waste water from the house plus a hidden drainage system which collects rainwater from the roof and grounds. There is a double pump system so if one is under maintenance the other can be switched over, so there is always water supply to the house.

The property is in a great central location: a short 15 minute drive from Faro airport and shopping. There are a number of villas scattered across the hillside, and the tarmac road provides good access.

This is a property that is attractive to look at, as well as comfortable and convenient to live in. Built to an extremely high standard, it is going to retain its value for many years to come.
