Placed in the heart of the beautiful Alentejo Coast, about an hour south of Lisbon and only 3Km from Lagoa de Melides with its wonderful beach bathed by the crystalline waters of the Atlantic Ocean, we find this superb country house set within a plot of land with almost 2,3 hectares, where leisure, tranquility and well-being are the key words, something that the Alentejo provides like no other.
Surrounded by a pine tree and cork oak forest, this property enchants at first sight precisely for its absolute green and lush environment. At its center there’s the main house, an immense building designed according to the basic principles and canons of the typical Portuguese architecture, very similar to a “monte alentejano”, which is the most famous type of house in this stunning region. Its dimensions are, however, much more impressive than the ones found on a normal “monte”, with very robust volumes composing the main facade. Situated on one of the property’s edges, you have a secondary home, much smaller but yet cozy and prepared to welcome visitors or even tourists, if you’d think on running a potentially quite profitable business here. Apart from these two major buildings, there’s also a 200-square-meter warehouse, which got a favorable assent from the town hall to be converted into two independent houses, ideal for tourism exploitation as well. Getting back to the main house, it expands through two stories distributed by two major volumes, one of which with a scenic mezzanine over one of the living rooms, providing the house a fantastic verticality. From the greater saloon and its marvelous typical fireplace decorated with wooden beams and stone walls to the American-styled kitchen with granite counter and a wide dining area, the floor is fully covered with rustic ceramic tiles that keep the house cool in the hot summer of this region. Every single bedroom of the house, apart from being all huge, comes with wooden floors in order to provide a cozier feeling during the colder months, having some of them built-in closets and private bathrooms, which come decorated with hand-painted tiles with an incredible aesthetics. One of this house’s main highlights is the massive games room, with snooker table, bar and large windows offering open views over the fabulous pool area and the outstanding gardens that cover the entire property.
This country house has the unique Alentejo charm all over the place, which is precisely what will conquer your heart, whether your purpose is to live here or to explore it as a Local Accommodation. All possibilities are great possibilities. The decision is yours!
