Luxury manor house for sale in the heart of the village of Sintra.
Built in 1830 by the Marquis of Saldanha, grandson of the Marquis of Pombal, it was known as the Italian House because it was designed by an Italian architect of great prestige and artists were employed to paint the frescoes that cover many of the walls of the building, both exterior and interior.
Upon entering the property, and passing the imposing period gate, we find a chapel and a lake that welcome us upon arriving at the main house, consisting of three floors.
The ground floor starts in a large hall that extends over a very imposing staircase, through a round room all surrounded by frescoes as well as the dining room, divisions served by a social bathroom. Next, we find a period kitchen, with a stone stove and a tiled panel. This floor is now developed for the service area which includes a canopy, service room, office and door to the annexes and a garage with a capacity of six to eight cars, and also access to the technical area.
Climbing up the stairs or the elevator, on the first floor we find three bedrooms served by a bathroom all hand painted. The second floor consists of a living room, a huge dome room, all with frescoes, a fantastic closet and a bathroom with a unique decoration. To conclude, a balcony with a superb view over the romantic center of Sintra village, without any restriction.
This luxury house also has an annex, which was divided into two 3-bedroom apartments, completely independent and renovated, with good finishes, which perfectly combine comfort and modernity with the classic lines of the entire property.
There is also a water mirror, which can be transformed into a swimming pool, and an extremely well-kept garden.
