An unique opportunity to own a house of the highest quality with un-paralleled views across the Atlantic Ocean, Guincho beach and the coast of Cascais
This charming property was built in the 1950s with the aim to create a large family home which truly maximised its unique position on one of the best vantage points of Malveira de Serra.
You enter the property along a sweeping tree lined driveway surrounded by a fantastic mature and well maintained garden. The house has been designed and built to complement and enhance the beautiful natural surroundings rather than impose itself upon them.
There are two wings to the house with the living area and the sleeping area clearly distinguished. A large split level living & dining room is the main focal point of the house and has a traditional tiled floor and a wood beamed ceiling. There is also an imposing fire place in the room with a large solid wood mantle as a feature. Two large picture frame style windows draw the eye out towards the ocean view and give an idea of the views that are available outside from the terrace. Large double doors lead out onto the terrace, gardens and pool area.
There is a spacious fitted kitchen and also a breakfast room off this, which is great for less formal dining. On the main floor there are three bedrooms, one is the master suite with bathroom and two further double bedrooms with an interconnecting bathroom. On the lower ground floor there are another two bedrooms and also a large storage room.
The terrace has a spacious covered area for Al Fresco dining and taking in the views and also overlooks the pool. This sits, perched on the edge of a steep decline and from this vantage point the whole of Cascais, Guincho and Malveira can be seen and with uninterrupted views to the Atlantic. Footsteps take you down into the gardens which have plenty of space. There is also a vegetable and herb garden and also some unused stables which can be developed into further accomodation. The property has garaging for two cars and space for four more cars outside.
Malveira de Serra is a protected national park in Portugal and sits between the UN World Heritage site of Sintra and the ever popular town of Cascais. The area is famed for its natural beauty, stunning beaches and excellent standard of living. There are numerous golf courses in the vicinity, the Grand Prix circuit of Estoril, world class sailing, windsurfing and surfing also means that it is a haven for sport enthusiasts. There are also numerous international schools in the area for anyone who has a family. The capital of Portugal, Lisbon is 25 minutes drive.
A property of this size and quality with its special location and unique positioning does not come onto the market very often and therefore viewings are highly recommended.
