The interiors speak of impeccable taste and a cultured eye for detail, where the aesthetic celebrates period character. Marble quarried from Sintra is used throughout, its lustre complementing the earthy tones of American red oak flooring.
The showpiece foyer features a grand sweeping stairway and reception hall that opens on to a sumptuously furnished lounge replete with a set of beautiful French doors. A travatine carved fireplace provides a focal point. The formal dining room is set over an exquisite American red oak floor with mahogany inlay. A rock crystal chandelier hangs over a stunning glass table with gold inlays. Lavish use of light wood cabinetry endows the large, fully equipped gourmet kitchen with delightfully transitional quality. The patio allows for al fresco dining.
The three double bedroom suites on this floor are individually furnished, with the third enjoying a private terrace with pleasant garden views. The staircase links an impressive mezzanine with a beautiful private library decorated with Brazilian cherry hardwood flooring and corded, tasselled drapery over mahogany cabinetry. A marble fireplace is set within one of the walls. The master suite is of presidential dimensions. A walk-through day room extends to a private breakfast terrace. Both rooms share a see-through fireplace.
A gloriously inviting double hydro tub defines the bathroom. Off the hall is a vanity room and gentleman’s parlour, both with ample wardrobe space; a third room can be used as an exercise room. The large walkout lower level holds two huge storage rooms that can be adapted to entertainment areas. The wine cellar is climate controlled. A private elevator heightens the sense of exclusivity.
The property sits in mature landscaped gardens flecked in season by colourful roses. A Jacuzzi surmounts one end of the heated swimming pool that faces a patio and covered barbeque area. Blissful panoramic views of the estate, the Atlantic Ocean and the Ria Formosa Natural Park can be admired from the rooftop terrace of this singular and highly desirable property.
