Large well maintained villa in a semi-rural location with wonderful panoramic country views

This fully fenced property offers a welcome retreat from the busy coastal areas yet is only a ten minute drive from the main town of Lagos and just a few minutes from the traditional Algarvian village of Bensafrim.

The property has an attractive wrap around covered terrace creating various vantage points to enjoy the surrounding countryside whilst relaxing in the shade. If it is sun you are after, the large grounds provide a great deal of privacy and outside space has mainly been left to nature, but with some imagination can be utilized further to enhance property. There is a Jacuzzi and BBQ area located close to the villa and scope to install an above ground swimming pool should the new owners wish to.

On entering the property via the attractive hallway there are bedrooms with ensuite shower rooms to either on either side. Further on there is the huge living dining room with built-in log burner and a semi-circular window arrangement to enjoy the views to the west for unbelievable sunsets.

The kitchen is large and is fully equipped with high end appliances. There are double doors giving access to the spacious sun terrace and entertaining area. There is a large pantry adjoining.

An internal wooden staircase off the hall takes you to a magnificent upper level that has been divided into a games room and is where the master bedroom with its full bathroom suite is located. There is a dedicated walk in wardrobe with plenty of excellent storage. Natural light floods in through the large velux windows that have been fitted with insect screens providing for a good light quality as well as ventilation.

The basement can be accessed from the hall and is divided between garage/workshop and a self-contained laundry area with external doorway. If desired this area can provide additional accommodation.

The property benefits from double glazing throughout; mains electric; borehole; central heating; alarm.

This really is a well constructed large family home in an idyllic country setting with easy access to both the south and west coasts, golden sandy beaches, local amenities, schools, golf courses, and all this delightful region has to offer.

Bensafrim is a former civil parish in the municipality of Lagos, Portugal. In 2013, the parish merged into the new parish Bensafrim e Barão de São João.
The name comes from the Arabic word Benassaharim. It used to be an agrarian community. Until the 50's of the past century the most important means of transportation were the ox and the donkey. Now it is a dormitory suburb of Lagos.
The most important event of the year is the annual fair on the 25th and 26th of August. This fair first took place in 1880.
In the last years there have been much building activity. A new square, sports fields, a medical post, water supplies and also the roads were improved. From Bensafrim there is a connection to the A22 highway and Faro International airport is less than an hour away.
The main town of Lagos has a population of approximately 22,000. Typically, these numbers increase during the summer months, with the influx of visiting tourists and seasonal residents. While the majority of the population lives along the coast and works in tourism and services, the inland region is sparsely inhabited, with the majority of the people working in agriculture and forestry. Lagos is one of the most visited cities in the Algarve and Portugal, due to its variety of tourist-friendly beaches, rock formations, bars, restaurants and hotels, renowned for its vibrant summer nightlife. Yet, Lagos is also a historic centre of the Portuguese Age of Discovery, frequent home of Henry the Navigator’s historical shipyard. Travel website TripAdvisor, classified Lagos as the number 1 travel destination, on a list of "15 destinations on the rise" worldwide.
