A precious garden for an imposing family villa
This charming three-bedroom property stands out by its splendid mature garden. The property is blessed with an open view towards the Ocean and the Cabo Girão viewpoint, the second highest ocean cliff in Europe. It also offers the possibility to generate a parallel income as there is a separate one-bedroom apartment on the ground level, which is just being refurbished.
Located on the outskirts of Funchal, at 350m height above sea level, it is just a stone’s throw from of one of the main shopping centres on the island. Despite the proximity, the layout guarantees tranquillity and privacy from the main street and shopping area, to the rear.
The majestic wooden front door opens up to an imposing double flight of stairs in the entrance hall, which is ample and bright. To the right lies the functional and generously sized family kitchen, fully fitted. It has natural light and a good size adjacent pantry that also serves as a technical area.
At this level, there is a pleasant lounge area with garden and ocean view separating the dining and living areas to the left.
On the second floor, a similar area offers a more cosy wintry atmosphere next to an electric fireplace. It provides direct access to two verandas also facing the Cabo Girão viewpoint.
All three-bedrooms feature wooden mahogany floors and fitted wardrobes. Two of them have a shared bathroom. The main suite, quite generous in size, features a large bath tub, the perfect place to enjoy the garden view.
On the lower level, there is a garage for one car and an extra fully fitted kitchen, one bathroom and two further multipurpose rooms, the more ample of them being used as a lounge sitting area. The original plan for the other, located to the rear, was to make a gymnasium. However, it has been turned into a generously sized bedroom to be able to use this area as a guest apartment or even a completely independent apartment for rental purposes, as the lower level has also its own separate entrance.
An automatic irrigation system guarantees the watering of the extensive landscaped garden, which includes also a large paved area adjacent to the house. There is a water tank to store the ‘Levada’ water, which could be turned into an outdoor seating area overlooking the garden.
At a walking distance from this lovely property you can find shops, cafés, pharmacy and restaurants at the Madeira Shopping centre. There is a bus stop near the entrance leading directly to the city centre, approximately 10 min driving distance.
In addition to the garden, which is magical when it is blooming, this property has small architectural details that would surprise you. Very well worth a viewing.
