Enjoying an excellent central position in the picturesque village of Boliqueime, this beautifully restored traditional village property must be visited to appreciate its many original features, its wonderful calm yet sophisticated ambience.......... and one or two surprises as well!
The property can be entered either from the street level front door taking you up a stone staircase to the living areas, or via the back gate through a magical "mediterranean" style courtyard and into the spacious fully equipped kitchen, which itself leads in to both the elegant dining room and entrance hall. Next to the dining room is the large living room with picture windows overlooking the village church, log burner and an adjoining room currently used as a study but which could also serve as a fourth bedroom if required. Completing this level are two good sized bedrooms, one of which also enjoys views overlooking the village centre, both served by a luxurious shower room.
Upstairs the space in the eaves has been tastefully converted in to a huge master bedroom with a modern ensuite shower room, built-in cupboards, additional storage areas in the eaves, skylights and a large private terrace. This space could also easily be converted in to two separate bedrooms as the current owner thoughtfully put the necessary provisions in place when doing the current works.
Despite its central village location the property benefits from a number of interesting and very private outside spaces, including a good sized private terrace at an upper level outside the kitchen and dining room, a pretty shaded courtyard at the lower level with access to the amazing indoor swimming pool which has been created from the old cisterna, and a large double garage with electric gate to the street at the rear of the property.
A further ground floor space with direct street level access adds an interesting extra dimension to this property. Currently rented out and operating as a restaurant , the space provides the current owners with a steady income however also offers a number of development possibilities either as further guest suites, a self contained rental apartment or incorporation into the main property thus creating a a sizeable 5 or 6 bedroom family home or boutique hotel.
Further architectural features of the property include original restored doors, shutters and windows, high wooden ceilings, vaulted stone ceilings at ground floor level, and stone and wooden floors . Further benefits include good internet connection, mains utilities and gas central heating making this a wonderful, tastefully refurbished property boasting all the necessary mod cons.
A truly exceptional property that really has to be visited to fully appreciate its charm and endless possibilities! Book your viewing now.
