A gorgeous country house combining contemporary design and historic appeal
The Silver Coast of Portugal (or Costa da Prata as it is known locally) stretches for nearly 200 kilometres from the shores at Lisbon, up to the wide sandy beaches of Figueira da Foz. Regarded as the leading emerging property market in Portugal, the area continues to grow in popularity amongst international buyers.
The magnificent Silver Coast has a deserved reputation for offering the “real” Portuguese experience, and the area has some of the most spectacular scenery in the country. It boasts fabulous sunny weather, a rugged coastline with dazzling beaches and charming fishing villages, as well as pretty countryside and inland villages. With world-class golf courses such as Praia D’El Rey setting the standard for some great golfing amidst the natural splendour of the Atlantic Coast, it is also the region that attracts more and more discerning golfers.
The beauty of the Silver Coast is that it has undergone strict local planning policies that limit development. It benefits from a high level of tranquillity, with thousands of acres of unspoilt countryside, yet is close to Portugal’s bustling capital, Lisbon, with its international airport less than an hour away.
Here is a private oasis where peace and tranquillity reign amidst pastoral environs. On over an acre of lovely grounds, the stylish country house is an elegant combination of glorious nature, understated luxury and privacy.
Blending tradition with modernity, the contemporary structure features sleek, modern design and airy, light-filled open spaces with clean, crisp lines. The original old part of the farmhouse has been beautifully restored and renovated. An ultra-modern extension has been added to offer a stunning combination of classic charm and modern glamour, which lends it an altogether unique feel.
Throughout the quinta, there are many quaint touches that hearken back to its origins, including an original fireplace, reclaimed materials such as brick, stone and tiles, and a functioning period bread oven in the kitchen. Glass, stainless steel and luxury hardwood materials add an elegant contemporary touch.
With 560m² of chic yet comfortable living space, the country house features four bedrooms, three lounges, one sitting/dining room, a large farmhouse kitchen and an office. Made of stone, the traditional great hall is strikingly contrasted by its modern vaulted ceiling and “white cube”, an adjoining room offering poolside lounge living.
Seamlessly integrating stylish interiors with al fresco living areas, the country villa offers a wonderful internal courtyard with pool.
The sublimely peaceful, bucolic setting of the enchanting home offers an abundance of fine family living space and magical countryside ambience. The property sits in an agricultural protected area close to the Lagoon of Obidos and the wonderful beaches of Foz do Arelho.
The chic country house redefines the art of luxury escapism by offering unparallelled privacy and seductive elegance.
