Historical and elegant family house just a few steps from the old town
Set in an established residential area of Funchal within walking distance of the old town, and only 5 minutes drive from Palheiro Golf, this elegant Villa is characterized by its simple but unique layout. The house was originally built around 1939, totally renovated in 2005, and has been maintained to a very high standard by its current owners who have added a modern touch to contrast with the classical details.
The main door opens up to a spacious hall with a solid wooden floor, which is present in all rooms, and has a mix of contemporary and classical art pieces. The living area, to the left, has a red sofa and an oriental style coffee table that match the rest of the interior decoration. The elegant dining room, one wall clad with mirrors, follows before you enter the kitchen, fully fitted with modern appliances.
A games room/library, a conservatory which has been turned into a office, and a guest WC complete the accomodation on this floor.
All bedrooms, with generous areas, are on the upper floor. The master bedroom with ensuite bathroom has a private balcony facing towards the city centre and the ocean. The other two bedrooms have a shared bathroom.
This historical villa, which still has its original stone walls, features an exterior jacuzzi, and a hand-crafted outside dining table located to the south-west of the house, where you can enjoy the view of the sunset over the old town and city, whilst having a late meal. The exterior paving features 'calçada portuguesa', typical drawings made with small basalt stones and, in this case, contrasting with white marble pebbles.
This historical villa has a garage space underneath the front terrace, and a second vehicle access to the east onto the ground floor level.
A charming and inviting property!
