This is a one of a life-time opportunity. An architectural gem opposite Lisbon, with breathtaking views over Lisbon and the Tagus river, Quinta da Vela offers peace and quiet combined with immediate access to Portugal's capital city and airport. This magnificent modern-style villa was designed and built in 1974 by a renowned Portuguese architect to be his private home.
Perched on a cliff hang on the South shore of the Tagus river, 100 metres above sea level, this bespoke property is a constant witness to the Tagus flowing into the Atlantic ocean.
Topping the last promontory of Europe in that latitude, Quinta da Vela directly faces the Tower of Belém and the Jerónimos Monastery on the opposite shore, and enjoys unrivalled 270º panoramic views encompassing the Tagus bridge to the East, the whole of Lisbon and Belém to the North, the mouth of the Tagus and the Atlantic ocean to the West, and Cape Espichel to the South.
This magnificent villa is composed of 3 separate buildings totalling a built up area of 600m2 in one single floor, in a 6,000m2 plot of land. Its seven white arches with thirteen-metre spans and the surrounding trees, soften the sea breezes and frame the ever-changing view, while deflecting sunlight towards the villa. At night, a magical, illuminated view of Lisbon and its monuments can be enjoyed from the garden. Framed by the three separate edifications and enjoying fabulous views of the river, the ocean and Sintra in the distance, a huge 1,000m2 Portuguese-style stone patio offers the possibility to hold weddings and any other sort of large events and gatherings. Generous parking space on the plot within the compound can fit up to 50 cars.
Lisbon's historical, cultural, touristic and gastronomic destinations are just a stone's throw away, easily accessed by car or tramway over the bridge, or by ferry crossing of the Tagus. The international airport and train stations are merely 20Km and 10 Km away respectively, while the nearby highway networks provides easy access to the rest of Portugal.
This modern-style architectural masterpiece is just a few minutes drive from the 40Km long magnificently white sandy beaches of Caparica, where all sorts of outdoors sports and activities are posible such as golf, horse-back riding, windsurf, surf, paragliding, mountain bike, hiking, sailing, etc.
Charming fishing villages in the vicinity offer a selection of neighbourhood fish restaurants rarely visited by tourists but greatly appreciated by locals.
