Definitive ocean, city and golf views from this modern design villa
The privileged elevated position of this modern style villa ensures stunning and definitive views to the Palheiro Golf course in addition to panoramic views over the Atlantic Ocean and the city centre of Funchal. Served by a regular bus line and just five minutes from the motorway, this family villa offers four generously sized bedrooms, one of them on the ground floor, and a heated swimming pool. It is located in a tranquil residential cul-de-sac in São Gonçalo, on the outskirts of Funchal.
The property is kept really private from the public road to the rear. In fact, we cannot imagine its magnificent views before passing through the motorized entrance gate. The main entrance door is located in the northern facade of the house and gives direct access to the bright and spacious open-plan living/dining area. A wood burning stove gives an extra cozy feeling to the living area, but is almost never used, as there is air conditioning installed throughout. The kitchen, fully fitted, shares the views to the south towards the meticulously maintained landscaped garden. Glass sliding doors provide direct access to the front terrace where a sitting area invites you to enjoy a relaxed meal.
The ground floor also offers an extra-bedroom, which seems to be perfect for a family with a limited mobility member. The property's layout guarantees that this ground floor bedroom has the necessary privacy even when other family members are gathering with friends in the living area.This bedroom has an adjacent bathroom with a walk in shower which could easily be turned into an ensuite one.
The kitchen has a pantry and there is also a generously sized laundry, with a narrow horizontal window and external glass door providing natural light. In fact straight modern lines and top-quality materials characterized the work of the architects who planned this villa, finished in 2008.
Climbing up the main wooden stairs it is really evident how much importance is given to the brightness of the communal living spaces, with the extensive usage of wide glass windows and sliding doors. From the top floor tv room as from the master suite it is possible to access the southern balcony and benefit from the most stunning views towards the Palheiro Golf course, Funchal and the ocean. The master bedroom has a generous dressing area and an ensuite shower bathroom, whilst the other two top floor bedrooms have a wide horizontal window offering views south, and a shared bathroom. At this level all the rooms feature wooden floors.
The 920 sq. m. property still offers a generously sized garage in the basement, an extensive storage area, a fully fitted bathroom and two extra rooms, which are currently used as offices but one was at some point a play room for young children. This area has an internal access to the upper floors.
In addition to the garage, it is still possible to park in the wide driveway, which is paved with the traditional granite pebbles called ´Calçada Portuguesa´.
The property has double walls and solar panels installed for the heating of the swimming pool.
