This well constructed, recently built villa includes sustainable technology, beautiful sea views and a peaceful Mediterranean countryside atmosphere. It consists of 3 individual accommodations - great for family groups or rental income and it qualifies for a Golden Visa. Tavira is about 10 min away.
Set on 2.3 hectares(of which 1.6h is fenced), this property is perfect for an idyllic peaceful Algarve lifestyle yet only 10 mins from the picturesque busy town of Tavira spread across a river mouth entering the sea. The small village of Santa Catarina is literally a minute away which has all amenities needed.
Every step was taken to ensure this home is extremely well insulated for all seasons and that running costs are especially low using superior technology. The layout of the villa also maximises the views to the lovely Fuseta Beach and the Atlantic ocean line, whilst the stone wall facades, the weathered bronze (turquoise) coloured HPL panels and Sedam green roof top blend beautifully with the surroundings,
The villa has 3 separate accommodations.
The main part of the villa consists of a ground floor and a lower level. Upon entering the property we are immediately greeted by wonderful sea views in the hallway. To the left we have an ensuite bedroom boasting those beautiful views. The bathroom has a shower and heated towel rails. The elevator is also in the hallway to reach the double garage and store rooms in the lower level.
Off the entrance hall to the right we have the kitchen and a large patio with Bioclimatic pergola to enjoy those sea views whilst dining any time of the year. Behind the kitchen is a neatly tucked away office and then we have a spacious living room which enjoys the same views, a wood burning fireplace and a wrap around terrace with adjustable awning.
Behind the living room we find the master suite which has its own very private courtyard. The large bathroom is accessed through the well organised walk-in dressing room and offers a very comfortable shower and a his and hers basin. There is also a door leading outside to the stone enclosed outdoor shower!
There is underfloor heating throughout and Samsung wind-free air conditioners
1 Bedroom Annex
This apartment is joined to the east wing of the main villa. The open plan kitchen living area and the bedroom both have ocean views and a spacious balcony with a retractable awning. The bathroom has the same tiles as in the main house. There is also underfloor heating and Samsung wind-free aircons in this Annexe
Studio Loft and "Atelier"
This was where the original ruin was but it was completely rebuilt to ensure the same level of sustainability and comfort. The loft apartment consists of a bedroom and bathroom, however there is pre-installation for a kitchenette to make this completely self contained for live in staff or rental purpose. On the lower level this room with exceptionally high ceilings is currently used for a Camper van but would make an exceptional Atelier, gym/studio or games room.
The 11 x 5m salt water pool has solar heating and an electric cover. The pool and jacuzzi are surrounded by ample decking(ceramic) to marvel at the Mediterranean country side and sea views whilst soaking up the Algarve sun. There is a bathroom next to the garage to service the pool guests. Lawns have been planted and the long winding driveway is currently being completed. There are a number of indigenous fruit trees and with so much land there is an opportunity to develop further for farming(plant or animal) or tourism.
All water for the house, gardens and pool are from a borehole(water for the house goes through a decalcifying treatment as well as reverse osmosis, whilst water for exterior use goes through the decalc treatment to protect the pool and irrigation pumps, pipes etc)
There is too much to mention on this but foundations, walls and even shutter housing all has been built using materials and technology to reduce cost and maximise comfort, from additional insulations and water proofing, to the turquoise HPL cladding which is not only decorative but highly durable and lowers energy costs due to insulation properties. The property also doesn't require exterior painting due to the stone and the flexible marble epoxy. Almost all the electricity is harnessed by 24 Photo-voltaic solar panels with inverter and batteries and the property has the best energy rating possible A+. The green roof also assists with insulation and helps the environment yet is easy to maintain and cost effective.
