DescriptionThe property is ready to be sold without the slightest burden. It was built in 1930 but was left to ruin for many years. About 10 years ago Projeffes purchased the Solar with a view of opening an hotel. The renovations were done and the property was finished off with quality and perfection with fantastic gardens and beautiful views.
The price includes all furniture (many are antiques), all fixtures and fittings and white goods. Also included in the price is a swimming pool. The buyers can choose where they want the pool to be first.
The property comprises of an entrance hall through double wooden and glass etched doors. This leads to a further inner hall with a solar kitchen to the right comprising of an integral electric eye level oven, gas hob with extractor, dishwasher, and fridge/freezer. There is also a breakfast bar.
From the inner hall to the left there is a stairway, leading to lower level, where there is a large area to the left suitable for a games room/ entertaining area etc, to the right a large kitchen, with washer and dryer, units etc. There is also a dry cellar with wooden door with up to 300 bottles of wine storage & bespoke stone sink. To the rear of the lower area is a wc/changing room and the boiler room & door to access rear of the property.
Back to the inner hall, straight ahead there are a couple of steps leading to very large drawing room with windows either side and large a/c system. There are plenty of sockets, TV connections etc... To the back of the reception room are two further rooms. To the left, a large room with window to the side, to the right a large room with window and doorway to wet room.
The corridor leads to a small rear hallway, to the left a further WC with shower, urinal, sink etc. The small rear hall way has a set of double doors leading to rear balcony with stone balustrades and steps that lead to rear 2 level garden.
From the main front hall to the left is a further inner hallway with window to the front and original ornate tiled floor. There is the main oak staircase with "Viúva de Lamego" wall tiles, that winds up past a large stain glassed window on the landing. The landing leads to an upper front salon with large arch window to the front of the Solar and original ornate tiled floor and "Viúva de Lamego" wall tiles
This leads to a central corridor that currently has 6 large rooms off. Currently two rooms have ensuite shower rooms with wc plus a house bathroom that could be converted into two further ensuites. One of the rooms is currently used as an upper kitchen fully fitted with electric oven, gas hob, extractor, dishwasher & central island.
The kitchen could easily be converted to a further bedroom if required. The kitchen leads to a small rear sun terrace which could be also converted to an ensuite bathroom if required.
The room at the end of the central corridor is currently used as a further upper reception room/drawing room, but could be ideally used as a master bedroom. It has windows to the side and rear, high ceiling with ornate coving and "Viúva de Lamego" wall tiles, with doors leading to a small sun terrace/study. *This could also be easily converted to a further ensuite bathroom.
There are many original features, including original ornate cornice to some ceilings, "Viúva de Lamego" antique wall tiles, and internal window shutters in the upstairs rooms.
There is further space in the next level, that we understand is could easily be converted into further bedrooms if required.
The Solar would suit itself to many purposes from a large family home, or small hotel / bed and breakfast.
The Solar is accessed by large decorative electric gates that lead into a very large front calçada courtyard that has orange trees.
There are led lights on the front gates and front courtyard. Also down the sides of the Solar and to the rear. There is also a watering system installed.
The rear is split into two levels. Currently left for the new owners to decide how they would like it. A pool will be installed and some hardcore has been left on the lower level with this in mind. The rear is really a blank canvas for the new owner to decide how they would like it.
