Luxurious classical villa, with two independent rental cottages, in the prestigious area of Conde Carvalhal

#QuintaFnc

C

Set at a walking distance from the old town in an exotic and mature garden, this historical property stands out for its privacy and comfort throughout, in addition to well-maintained and generously sized interior areas.
As one of the finest classical villas in Funchal it would make a perfect home for a large family. It would also suit for combined residential holiday use, as it already houses a successful boutique tourism business.
The open views towards Funchal harbour and the mountains are a must, despite being just a few metres above sea level. The 1000m2 plot is just 450m from the restaurants, shops, cafés and the beach.
This villa, dated from 1902, has generously sized rooms with traditional and well maintained features from that era.
The ground floor accommodates a generously sized reception area, currently used as a games room. This level houses a guest bedroom, a bathroom and space for a kitchenette, if someone would also like to rent this floor independently, as it is possible to separate it from the other floors.
The propertys main entrance, on the intermediate level, opens up to another extensive living dining library area, which results from the fusion of the old smaller rooms. The villa still keeps its original casquinha (pitch pine) floors throughout, white wooden windows, exterior wooden shutters, in an appealing pacific blue, and white internal shutters as do most of the Quintas on Madeira Island, which blend into the walls.
In addition the traditional hand worked ceilings, painted also in blue, and the fireplace, add extra charm to this four-bedroom home.
The modern kitchen, bright and also generous in size, is to the rear, and has an adjacent pantry. On the west side, there is the best spot for al fresco dining in the hottest August days.

At this level. there is still an office and a guest WC.
One of the four bedrooms on the top floor is currently used as a dressing area. The extensive veranda on the top floor offers stunning views over Funchals amphitheatre, from the mountains until the ocean. There are two modern and fully fitted bathrooms at this level.
The property has a garage for two cars with automatic entrance gate at street level. It is also possible to park one car on the west side of the property, next to the pantry, which is quite handy to deliver the groceries.
In the lower garden, a tree house makes the youngest members of the family happy. Further down, the property still maintains its casinha de prazeres (a typical gazebo common in the traditional Madeiran Manor houses Quintas)
For the garden irrigation, the property has levada water which is stored in one of the water tanks.
To the rear, two old cottages were restored seven years ago, and are currently being rented under the short term holiday rental (AL local lodging). They have an independent access & their own pool, so no rental guests would disturb the main house .
There are solar panels for domestic water heating. - REF: QuintaFnc
