This deceptively spacious, 250m2, beautiful home was built in 2006. It sits in 7.1 hectares of lovely Alentejo countryside has a traditional Mediterranean feel, with modern yet tasteful interior.
As you enter this cleverly and well-designed home you get a sense of elegance, with its high vaulted ceilings throughout the property and its open plan living areas flowing seamlessly. Providing a spacious, yet, warm feeling throughout which is both comfortable and large enough for entertaining family and friends.
There are several interesting architectural features including a cosy inglenook styled area for reading or relaxing. There is a feature arch where the wood burning stove sits perfectly and underfloor heating for the short winter season. In the heat of the long summer months, the lounge opens up letting the outdoors inside, where you can enjoy the benefit of the outdoor lounge on the harmonious covered terrace area overlooking the larger than averaged size 15mx5m, saltwater swimming pool, gardens and uninterrupted stunning views.
Off the lounge there is an entrance hallway with large storage cupboards and a separate cloakroom and wash basin approx (1.75×1.14m).
The kitchen/ dining area (5.5mx6m). Boasting solid wood, hand-built units with granite polished worktops. It houses a new smeg range cooker with 6 gas burner hob and electric oven/ grill and other top of the range, quality kitchen equipment. Plenty of room for the 8-seater dining table makes it a chefs paradise.
In the separate utility room is a new dishwasher, washing machine and plenty of shelves and storage space.
The side door from the kitchen opens onto a shaded dinning and bbq area with lighting. Perfect for summer evenings.
The master bedroom (5.3 × 4.1m) with patio doors onto the covered veranda and dual aspect windows looking out over the pool and bbq area. A separate dressing area with ample storage and a large en suite bathroom (2.45 × 2.33m) with a feature sunken style large bath and sink unit set in polished marble. All neutral tones.
The other 3 guest bedrooms, all with fitted wardrobes are all of similar size to the master and all en suite, which have showers and again fitted with tiles and polished marble, all having neutral tones and having equally good views, and have all been cleverly situated at the opposite side of the house for some privacy when you have guests visiting.

The outside areas have been as equally well designed as the inside with lots of thought put into the long summer months of outdoor living.
There is a path leading round to the must be seen fantastic covered veranda which can also be accessed from the lounge. The terrace has a few steps on each side leading to the large paved area surrounding the large, saltwater swimming pool. There is also an extra shaded pergola at the pool side. The whole area has been discreetly walled, to one side is a brick built storage shed which neatly fits in and houses the heat exchanger for pool heating (if required).
The gardens and land beyond are well maintained, established and well stocked with various shrubs, evergreens, flowers and various fruit trees, offering colour and interest all year round partly due to having a irrigation system in place.

The house was built for the current owners as a family home it is roughly 2km from a small village and 12km from the main town of Ourique which hosts all amenities for day to day living.
It has great links to both Lisbon and faro airports with good services via train or coach.
The South and West coastlines with fabulous beaches are just 40mins drive away.
In Brightmoves opinion the house must be viewed to soak up the idyllic, luxury lifestyle on offer and to appreciate the many quality fixtures, fittings and special attention to detail throughout.
