CLOSED TO LOULE - ALGARVE This thoughtfully designed and well constructed villa sits on its own 5,900 m2 plot in a quiet location close to Loulé. The south facing property benefits from unusually spacious accomodation and beautiful, well kept grounds. The house is approached through electric gates and along its own cobbled drive. The double height entrance hall gives an immediate impression of space and height. In front is the high ceilinged living room with double patio doors leading onto the terraces around the pool and taking in the view across the grounds to the surrounding countryside. This room also has a log burning fire. The kitchen, which is reached from the living room, also has patio doors to the terrace and lots of natural light. The room has a corner dining area and was refitted 3 years ago with quality appliances and built in fridge, freezer and dishwasher. A separate dining room also leads off the living room. On the ground floor there are also two bedrooms, both en suite and both having patio doors to the outside terrace beside the swimming pool. These are two very pretty rooms with views across the terrace and grounds beyond. The accomodation on this level is completed by the guest cloakroom and another small room, currently used as an office, but which is plumbed and was previously the maid's room.
