Experience living in pure architectural simplicity whilst being in harmony with nature. Retaining its traditional Portuguese exterior, this villa's interior was completely transformed into a loft-like space which is filled with natural light. Designed by well-known architect Erik Kortchinsky, this is a unique modern country house. The floor to ceiling windows in the living and dining-room area allow nature to enter seamlessly inside the space. The interior of the house is bathed in light every moment of the day, illuminating the glossy concrete floors and walls. The furnishings are minimal and contemporary, allowing the energy of the space to flow. The house has wi-fi and cable TV, and all necessary kitchen equipment. The terrace opens onto the south side of the house, and from the mezzanine you are able to see the sea in the distance. On the mezzanine floor there is a sofa bed, allowing for another one or two persons.
Safety awareness- because of the mezzanine area, & stairs with open spaces between them, this home is not suitable for children under 8 years old or the very elderly. There is also a strict no-smoking policy inside the house, but one may of course smoke- with care, outside.
A car is essential to travel to nearby beaches and the local towns, however one can easily walk to the village of Santo Estevao, which has a pharmacy, two small supermarkets, and local cafes.
As the property is situated in nature & part of an ecological reserve area, there is not a swimming-pool. There are several beautiful beaches within a 10-15 minute drive. One can also sit in or by, the water feature to refresh oneself on a hot day.
