This property has maintained all the charm and elegance of its original construction some 70 years ago. The Quinta comprises a five-bedroom house surrounded by a well-maintained landscaped garden featuring mature trees and a swimming pool with generous dimensions. Its location is key, close to the hotel area in the centre of Funchal, whilst simultaneously offering privacy, quiet, and a feeling of being far removed from the hustle & bustle. The property also benefits from wonderful ocean, city and mountain views.
It would be ideal as a full time residence with a privileged position and easy access to the amenities of the city, but is also suitable for, and currently operating as, a holiday rental property.
This manor house impresses with its elegance on first entering the grounds. The pale yellow/cream façade stands out against the stunning colourful gardens and the basalt pebbles of the driveway.
The hall, bright and welcoming, is paved with colourful traditional tiles, contrasting with the wooden doors and the main staircase, which are lacquered in white. A library, on the right hand side, offers a warm and cosy room for winter evenings with its fireplace. The living area is generous in size, featuring hand worked high ceilings in beige and white. Traditional in style, the ample kitchen is located to the west, offering views towards the swimming pool, which can be accessed directly via the breakfast/dining area next to the kitchen. The ground floor also offers a good sized bedroom and a guest WC. This floor is handicap friendly and privileges an indoor/outdoor living style.
The upper level is reserved for the other four bedrooms. Three of them share a private veranda to the south, offering stunning ocean & city views. The master-suite offers a private dressing area and an ensuite bathroom, whilst the other bedrooms all have ensuite bathrooms. This floor also features high ceilings and wooden floors. Most of the original wooden shutters were substituted by aluminium ones, which are much easier to maintain.
The 15m X 9m swimming pool was installed in 1982. The pool is currently not heated, but an adjustment to the solar panel installation could easily facilitate this. A garden storage room and a WC complete the accomodation. The property has access to ´Levada´ water for the garden irrigation.
Along the western boundaries of the property various benches invite you to rest under the colourful creepers & the shade of the mature trees and enjoy the lush gardens and open views. The property is licensed as a holiday rental property (AL).
