This unique home faces the castle to North, the Atlantic Ocean to South, on top of a small elevation (80m), and 360m away from the Sesimbra Bay golden beaches.
180º south views to the Atlantic Ocean, Sesimbra bay, and the cliffs of the Arrábida Nature Reserve. To the east, the fishing port and west, on the horizon the Costa Vicentina up to Cabo de Sines, whilst in the foreground you can enjoy an “aerial view” of the village and its beaches.
Built in 1968, the villa had major refurbishment works in 2004, including replacement of water and sewage pipes, electrical panels and circuits, new bathrooms, air-conditioning installation (Daikin), new terrace pavements, etc..
The villa was built under the guidance of Mr. Conceição Silva, and was from the original project of one of the most renowned Central and South American architects, Mr. Enrique Langenscheidt. The project was reported in “Arquitectura México”, nº 85, March 1964, and the villa itself was reported in Portuguese magazine “Arquitectura & Construção”, nº 17, April 2002.
The main entrance of the villa is located at the North side, overlooking the protected wooded area of the castle slope, whose battlements and towers are cut over the blue sky when viewed from the villa.
You enter into a large open space, which is the dining and living areas, each on its own level, and a huge fireplace in polished hammered copper in the center, reaching the beautiful wooden roof structure.
In front of you, through a large wood and glass structure, the Atlantic Ocean, Arrabida Reserve and the big kidney-shaped swimming pool (60m2), which you also have from the rooms and suite, through their large glazed doors/windows to the terraces.
The villa has 3 uneven levels about 60 cm between them, the highest level comprising the entrance hall and the entire intimate area with 2 large bedrooms and 1 bathroom, plus 1 bedroom with ensuite.
The intermediate level comprises the dining area, kitchen and a 4th bedroom and bath.
The lower level comprises the large living area which has direct access to outdoor terraces, swimming-pool and Al-Fresco terrace.
There is a library located under one of the bedrooms, constituting a quiet and pleasant living / reading space, with natural ventilation and air conditioning.
The bathrooms have windows opening to the outside, all bedrooms have hardwood flooring, as well as large built-in wardrobes, all in Sucupira wood from Brazil. The dining area has a built-in loo cupboard. All other floors are in rustic tile 30cm x 30cm, including all the extensive outside terraces.
Besides the reinforced concrete structure, Sucupira wood from Brazil was used throughout the whole structure of the roof (in plain view) and in the carpentry, from floors, coverings, doors, footstools and glazed grills, to the big glazed structure of the living area. Sucupira from Brazil is a most rare wood nowadays, a precious wood for its beauty and durability. In fact, the villa was built in 1968 and Sucupira wood is like new, even considering it is by the seaside!
