This outstanding residence is set in the countryside and ensures absolute privacy and discretion for the owner. Inside, extended ceiling height, huge picture windows and an open plan split-level interior create a genuine sense of space. The dining area is set on a raised terrace next door to a modern and dynamic gourmet kitchen, with access to an outside dining space.
The lower level features ensuite bedrooms, art gallery and cinema room, wine cellar, laundry room and ample storage. The master suite on the upper level has a shower room and Jacuzzi and two dressing rooms. Outside, an old windmill has been carefully refurbished and imaginatively integrated into the architectural footprint. A custom designed heated swimming pool and Jacuzzi adds dramatic perspective to the expansive grounds that surround the villa.
A tennis court provides further recreational opportunities, and a Helipad is available to receive VIP guests. Despite its relatively seclusion, the villa is just 12 minutes away by car from Faro airport and only 20 minutes from the golf courses at Quinta do Lago.
