Panoramic views from this one level home in São Gonçalo
Completely refurbished in 2020, this traditional style three-bedroom house in São Gonçalo offers the most stunning and definitive views towards Funchal Bay. The accommodation is all on one level and the layout is now functional and presents excellent indoor/outdoor flow.
Originally built in 1961 on a sunny and tranquil hillside of the São Gonçalo parish, this family home is ready to walk in and use. Whilst maintaining all the charming traditional features, the entire installations of water, gas, electricity and sewage are new. All the windows and shutters have been replaced by easy-to-maintain aluminum ones, the roof has been retiled and all exterior areas definitively impermeabilized.
The imposing solid wood main entrance door leads to an elegant living/dining area. The views could not be more appealing: Funchal Bay, like a framed photograph through the French sliding doors. The high ceilings and good quality vinyl floors throughout provide a feeling of expanse to the social area.
The master bedroom shares the same superb city and ocean views. This area was rearranged to accommodate a walk-in closet and a modern ensuite bathroom with a walk-in shower.
The second bedroom features an arch. As it is quite generously sized, it would be possible to create a separate dressing area as well. The third bedroom is smaller and could also work well as an office as there are no fitted wardrobes.
The shared family bathroom is generous in size and features a walk-in shower paved with basalt pebbles which were carefully chosen from the island’s shore.
The new kitchen, fully fitted, has covered access to the east leading directly to the BBQ area. It features green handmade ceramic tiles,white cupboards, and white silestone worktops and sink.
To the east and behind the BBQ area is a separate laundry and an additional storage/ pantry room.
This quiet property benefits from an excellent outdoor dining area with a barbecue, a glass pane giving shelter from any breeze and allowing year-round usage with the adjacent open fireplace. Preparing the BBQ dinner whilst enjoying the most magnificent sunset is indeed a privilege.
Steps lead up from the BBQ area to an independent roof-top terrace, the place to hide away with a good book and admire the cityscape.
Most of the exterior area is paved in basalt stones from the pebble beaches of Madeira. Potted plants and a mature fruit tree at the entrance are the beginning of a garden which can be added to by the new owner. The garage with automatic door fits two cars, with steps leading up to the entry level where the main pedestrian access door is also electronically operated.
São Gonçalo is located on the eastern side of Funchal. There are some restaurants, supermarkets, cafés and shops within two or three minutes´ drive from the property. The city centre is just ten minutes away.
The property has a plot area of m2, with m2 construction area.
This is a gem of a house, set in a quiet and established area, offering the highly desired views to the Bay, fully refurbished whilst maintaining all of its original charm.
The sales price includes the living room and bedroom furnishings, as well as a brand new fitted kitchen.
