Magnificent sunsets over the Atlantic Ocean can be enjoyed from this luxurious modern villa, especially in the winter season. With its location on the edge of a cliff on the southwest coast of the island, it offers stunning views towards Lugar de Baixo and its natural waterfalls. Recently finished to a high standard, this three-bedroom villa has been carefully designed to guarantee privacy throughout and natural light to all internal divisions.
The property is accessed from the north, directly into the top floor, which accommodates two of the bedrooms and an office, as well as the ample garage. All bedrooms have fitted wardrobes (lacquered in white with oak interiors) and ensuite bathrooms with walk in showers. All divisions, including the bathrooms, have floor to ceiling doors lacquered in white, and generously sized grey sliding doors, which lead to the exterior full-length veranda. The black-outs and blinds are all electrical. The floors are French oak (high-quality vinyl).
For more privacy, guests could use the exterior stone staircase down to the ground floor, where they would be welcomed by the most stunning open-plan kitchen/living/dining area.
Even those who are not usually attracted to the kitchen would enjoy preparing meals with these views towards the Atlantic Ocean, contrasting with the green landscaped garden to the rear. Featuring Bosch appliances, the kitchen area has white cupboards and Corian worktops. There is a multipurpose room to the east of the kitchen, which was planned as an atelier but could be turned into a pantry or even a wine-cellar.
The barbecue area is just outside. It is fully fitted and a built-in roll-up blind can be installed to guarantee that the late afternoon sun does not affect the family’s dinners. The 10 X 3 metre infinity swimming pool has salt water treatment and pre-installation for heating. In the garden to the west of the house, some cedars have been planted to make sure that the property maintains its privacy.
The ground floor also features the most generously sized master suite. The ensuite bathroom, which is separated by a glass window, features a free-standing bath in addition to the walk-in shower. At this level all divisions also feature the French doors which provide direct access to the pool deck. A guest WC completes the accommodation.
There is an ample laundry with independent access to the rear.
On the top floor the forecourt gives access to the covered garage for two cars. This is also a very bright area, featuring various windows facing south-west, making it a versatile place for a small gym area or a workshop, for example. There is a video-surveillance system pre-installed.
Please note that the property does not require air conditioning, despite being pre-installed. The architect made sure that the summer sun did not directly affect any of the internal divisions.
This area belongs to the parish of Tabua, in Ribeira Brava, and is three minutes´ drive from the local bakery, grocery stores and the motorway. It is very tranquil, sunny and warm, even in the winter season.
This property, as it is very functional and easy to maintain, is perfect as a main residence, but could be also considered as an investment. Similar properties in the surrounding area have a good return on investment in the short-term holiday rental market.
