Bright and spacious penthouse in Santa Luzia, Funchal
Despite being in the centre of Funchal, this unique four-bedroom penthouse still offers the privilege of watching the cruise liners arrive and depart. It is set in a meticulously maintained upmarket condominium, in the lower part of the Santa Luzia parish, a quiet and established residential area, just five minutes´ walk to the city centre.
This generously sized top floor apartment (261m2) which occupies the entire fourth floor, was designed in a bright and modern loft style, with superior quality finishes, easy to maintain, and would be perfect for a family who values an indoor/outdoor lifestyle whilst being within walking distance of all amenities.
The entrance hall features an extra high ceiling. It separates the bedrooms to the west from the living areas to the east. The furniture, which is subject to negotiation, divides the extremely spacious open-plan living/dining room into three distinct areas. It features ceramic (stone?) floors and a private balcony facing south/southwest. The kitchen, fully fitted with Gaggenau appliances and “as new”, has an adjacent laundry area and a terrace facing north/northwest which houses a barbecue and an exterior table for al fresco dining. The spacious guest WC was designed to be accessed from the living/dining area as well as from the kitchen.
The bedrooms are all accessed via a wide corridor. The master suite is the first on the left. It has a private balcony, is extremely spacious, and benefits from city and harbour views. The second bedroom suite shares the same views.
All bedrooms have solid oak floors and various built-in wardrobes, which take advantage of the lower parts of the loft and enhance the storage capacity of the accommodation.
The other two bedrooms enjoy magnificent views north towards the hills and mountains of Madeira and have a shared bathroom.
All bathrooms feature walk in showers.
There are solar panels for the domestic hot water. The air-conditioning is already pre-installed, but it has proven not to be essential. All divisions feature at least two velux windows, guaranteeing natural day light and some breeze in the hottest summer days.
There is garage parking for two cars and an external parking space to the rear of the building, a private area which has extra parking spaces for visitors. There is also a storage room at the garage level.
Built in 2013, this condominium is situated within easy walking distance of the heart of the city, and offers a convenient location for those who like to be close to all the facilities, services and entertainment, whilst still enjoying a quiet and more reserved area. The extremely well kept facilities include a generously sized swimming pool in the communal gardens and a gymnasium.
Although a perfect option for full-time living, this apartment would also function well as a holiday rental investment, with similar properties enjoying high occupancy levels.
