SBK279: Loule House
Beautiful 2 bedroom villa with roof terrace, land for vegetable garden & terrace. Fully modernised to provide you with an ideal lock-up and leave holiday home, permanent residence or an investment property.
It´s with a very heavy heart that we have had to move back to the UK for health reasons and now are selling our loved home.
The house was built on the site of a ruin by an English builder for himself and his family to live in and his talent and attention to detail shines through.
This 2-bedroom, south-facing cosy semi-detached villa has been fully modernised to provide you with an ideal lock-up and leave holiday home, a permanent residence, or an investment property
(either for rental or as a holiday let due to its proximity to The Ombria Resort (https://www.ombria.com/en/) and is one of the few areas along the Algarve where you can still get an AL license). If you are looking for a mixture of modernised rustic, and rural charm yet with easy access to high-end holiday facilities, at an excellent price, this could be the property for you.
Once you step inside you start to experience pure comfort and tranquillity. The entire property is insulated and boasts reverse air conditioning throughout, ensuring a comfortable living environment no matter the season.
The open-plan kitchen, lounge, and diner are bright and welcoming with high ceilings. The house is being sold with all appliances including a recently purchased dishwasher, fridge freezer, washing machine, and tumble dryer. Two double French doors. All windows and doors in the property are top of the range double glazed and coated with sun protection glaze.
Taking the small set of stairs (only 7 steps) to the bedrooms you pass by exposed feature stonework and a large cupboard.
The two large double bedrooms face North, protecting you from the Algarvian sun and creating a comfortable sleeping environment. The bedrooms are of a similar size with one having built in wardrobes. Both have reverse air conditioning.
The modern bathroom features a bath and separate shower cubicle with drencher head.
We used to love cozying up on cool(er) winter nights with the top-of-the-range wood burner. We would admire the crackling fire, the breathtaking view of the starry nights through large windows and just experience pure peace.
The South Terrace and the view
The fully fenced terrace (secure for pets) looks out over the thing that made us buy this property, above all, the view.
It was this picturesque view that led us to decide to purchase this remarkable property. The property lies on the side of a hill with uninterrupted views across the countryside. With its maintenance-free terrace, you too can now relish in the tranquility and charm of your surroundings without any hassle. And in the summer, when you need a refreshing dip, simply take a dip in your very own plunge pool, perfect for cooling off on a warm summer’s day.
The thoughtfully designed layout of this house has been crafted to ensure that every inch perfectly captures the breathtaking views. Whether you are entertaining guests or enjoying a quiet evening by yourself, the large south terrace creates the ideal ambiance for you to indulge in the natural beauty that surrounds you.
The Roof Terrace
Venture to the roof terrace and be prepared to be captivated by the breathtaking views that stretch as far as the eye can see. This enchanting vantage point is not just a rooftop; it is your haven to cherish mesmerizing sunsets and create unforgettable memories. You will also find a useful large lockable storage shed tucked away in the corner.
Imagine savouring a refreshing cocktail as you witness the sun slowly descending beyond the horizon, painting the sky with vibrant hues of orange and yellow. This idyllic setting transcends mere beauty; it is an experience that will ignite your senses and sooth your soul, time and time again.
Land and Storage Areas
One of the features of this property is the little piece of land to the back, which is perfect for those with green fingers or a love for animals. Grow your vegetables or create a small haven for your furry friends to roam freely. In fact, it is already set up as a small animal pen, fully fenced and with a concrete kennel with two garden areas. Our next plan was to convert it to an area with raised beds. Or it could be for additional parking. There is another small area outside the bedrooms which could be made into a parking space but currently has a lockable storage shed.
With amazing views and breathtaking sunsets, you’ll never tire of the stunning backdrop that surrounds you if you do want to do some work out there. There is also a large, enclosed, lockable storage room built on the side of the house with plumbing and lighting and where you can find the modern boiler.
Although nestled in peace and serenity, you’ll never be far away from unparalleled facilities. The new 5-star eco-resort at Ombria Eco Resort, complete with a golf course and 5* hotel, is just a stone’s throw away. You will be able to enjoy easy access to top-notch amenities without sacrificing your privacy. Concessionary prices are available across the resort for residents, even on the golf course. Properties on the resort start at 900,000 euros for a one-bedroomed apartment so this property is a bargain.
The property is situated just 8 minutes from the centre of Loulé, a large historic Portuguese town where you will find schools (both Portuguese and International), activities, restaurants, bars and nightlife. The covered market in Loulé stocks fresh fruit, vegetables and seafood, there is a weekly farmers market in the town. Supermarkets are in Loulé and Salir. There are several international schools close by.
You are a 15-minute drive from the nearest Algarvian beaches at Quarteira and Vilamoura.
With good road access and a mix of Portuguese and English (and other nationalities) neighbours, this property offers the best of both worlds – a tranquil escape with a touch of community. You can connect with the local community as you stroll through the picturesque countryside and make your way to the charming local bar within walking distance of the village.
