Situated just 15 minutes from Tavira, in one of the most unspoilt areas of the Algarve, Quinta da Fornalha is a country house set in 2500 m2 of land on the edge of a small village and adjacent to open countryside. All on one level, this home is quiet, private and has great views. It comprises:
• Entrance hall
• Living room with wood burning stove
• Dining room with door to outside patio
• Kitchen with original bread oven and door to large covered sun terrace
• Master bedroom with ensuite bathroom and fitted wardrobe
• Two further double bedrooms, one with fitted wardrobe and one with door to covered sun terrace
• Family bathroom
All the rooms have traditional timber ceilings and the floors are tiled with local clay tiles, which give charm and character to the house.
On the south side of the house there is a large covered sun terrace with a traditional built-in seat, beautiful timber beams and superb views of the surrounding countryside. On the east side of the house there is a xisto paved patio. Both are ideal for al-fresco dining: either dinner on balmy Algarve evenings or breakfast in the warm morning sunshine. Outside there are two good sized storage areas and space for parking cars. The land has many mature trees, such as carob, olive, orange and lemon. In the surrounding area there are lots of trails making it easy to step out of the house and go walking, mountain biking or bird watching.
The total floor area of the house is 200 m2, with the covered terrace being an extra 50 m2. The whole property is for sale freehold with vacant possession upon completion and there is no upward chain.
The Algarve has long been a favourite with buyers looking for a holiday home or a lifestyle change. With only a 2½ hour flight time from London, an average of 300 days of sunshine per year, a year round warm climate, championship golf courses, golden beaches, numerous sporting activities on hand and restaurants to suit all tastes, the advantages to living in the Algarve are innumerable. Tavira, just 15 minutes from the house, is one of the most unspoilt and traditional towns in the Algarve and has several beautiful beaches. The airport at Faro is approximately an hour's drive from the house.
Quinta da Fornalha would make an excellent permanent home, a first rate holiday home or holiday rental offering the best of both worlds - a rural hideaway with walking and mountain biking on the doorstep but with all the Algarve beaches, golf and first class restaurants just a short drive away.
