Premium villa with superb Funchal views in Neves
This immaculately presented five bedroom villa offers luxury, space and extraordinary views over the Atlantic Ocean and Funchal Bay, all the way up to the mouantins to the north of the amphitheatre which is Funchal. A premium spot in the established and up-market residential area of Neves, São Gonçalo, perfect to watch the Madeiran New Year´s fireworks, with their rightful place in the Guinness book of records.
The traditional façade of this villa blends perfectly with the surrounding area. The charm and elegancy of this property come from within and could pass unnoticed from the adjacent road. Only after accessing the ground floor level does one fully realize what makes this family house really special. The north facing wall is almost entirely in glass, bringing in the morning sun and giving you the feeling that the rear garden is a natural extension of the living area. Luxurious touches are evident all around, from the master-bathroom's spacious indoor Jacuzzi that offers stunning views south, to the crystal chandelier hanging over the bright main staircase or the water feature in the rear landscaped garden, cascading over carved rocks into a small lake full of carps.
Actually, this villa was designed and built to a high specification and construction quality to take the best advantage of the superb views, which could be appreciated not only when you are on the top floor, but even whilst you are preparing a meal in the family’s kitchen at the swimming pool level.
The ground floor opens up to an elegant entrance hall, offering a glimpse of the formal open-plan living/dining area, featuring solid wooden ´Casquinha´ floors, fitted air conditioning for cooling/heating with state of the art controls, and an integrated Bose sound system. Ample, bright, and stylishly decorated, the living area also offers a woodburning stove for colder nights, which are not that common at this height. An imposing and spacious guest WC features marble appointments in grey contrasting with the fresh white walls and doors throughout.
Adjacent to the generously sized family kitchen, a fully fitted laundry and pantry complete the accommodation at this level. The functional barbecue area, housing a traditional Madeiran bread oven, is conveniently located next to the kitchen and offers an ample covered terrace facing the ocean - the spot for al fresco dining.
A bright and impressive wooden staircase leads to the upper floor which accommodates the four generously sized bedrooms, two with ensuite bathrooms. All bedrooms feature fitted wardrobes lacquered in white and all offer privileged views south to Funchal Bay, where the cruise liners arrive and depart. The master bedroom located to the east has an ample dressing area and an ensuite marble bathroom with a Jacuzzi and separate walk-in shower.
The master suite also benefits from a private balcony to the south. Bedrooms three and four can be closed off to form a two-bedroomed private suite with shared bathroom. One of them has two private balconies, one south, another facing west. The top floor also houses an additional spacious closet.
The open-plan area at the basement level has been turned into an extensive home cinema featuring a TV area, a bar, space for a snooker table or a table tennis table and a small wine cellar. Its ideal location allows the wine to be maintained at its best.
A further bedroom with ensuite bathroom is used for maid accommodation, although being wide and bright enough for guests. There is also a guest WC, an office, a Gymnasium area and a garage for three cars. Extra parking spaces are available in the driveway..
All floors are covered by smoke alarm monitors, with direct connection to the alarm control centre. The exterior lights, in the garden and in the large swimming pool, are remotely controlled. There is an automatic irrigation system to water the garden with a zoned timer system.
The property is situated 5 minutes from the Golf course at Palheiro, 5 minutes to Funchal and only 20 minutes from the airport.
