A rare gem in the centre of Funchal! Its location, so central and yet so private, generous plot and the fact that it includes a private water spring, makes this period property one of a kind.
Located in the immediate neighbourhood of the Santa Luzia gardens, less than 5 minutes walking distance from the local shops, restaurants and cafés, this traditional style property features 5 bedrooms, one of them ensuite, an ample mature garden featuring endemic trees and extra space to install a swimming pool or even also to build a cottage with independent access.
The imposing driveway, paved in stone, is flanked by the mature garden. The main access is at the upper floor, directly into the generously sized living/dining area through an elegant glass door with iron arabesques. At this level there are two generously sized bedrooms and a smaller bedroom room with garden views, which could also be used as an office.
The main bedroom has an ensuite bathroom featuring a walk-in shower, and direct access to the exterior balcony. The brand-new kitchen, fully fitted, is located near the spiral staircase which gives access to the lower floor. The enclosed laundry leads to the rear. There is an additional shower bathroom which also serves as a guest WC at this level.
On the lower floor, a traditional madeiran stoneworked archway gives access to the reception room. This cosy area offers a fireplace, also featuring the traditional ‘cantaria’. At this level, there is a fully fitted bathroom and three further bedrooms.
The property has water from its own private spring, which is mainly used for the garden. There is space on the 944 m2 plot to install a swimming pool in the lawn and in addition, to extend the existing garden area to the currently unused ground to the side. It would also be possible to create an annex in this area for guest accomodation with an independent access via another road to the rear.
In the back part of the garden, next to the barbecue area, there is a guest WC.
Originally built in 1950, the ‘Til house’ was completely refurbished in 2019, without jeopardizing the charm of a period stone house. The stained-glass doors and wooden windows were recuperated. Some shutters have been substituted by aluminium ones, as they are easier to maintain. All the electricity, telecommunication and water connections are new: The property has LED lighting and fibre optic cables to guarantee full internet speed.
