Unique detached property with breathtaking views over the wild Atlantic ocean on Madeira's beautiful, rugged northern coast. A place to completely escape from the stresses of everyday life, breathe in the sea air and go to sleep every night to the sound of the waves.
Situated on a plot of 282 m2, located in Terra Cha and within walking distance of the cafes, restaurants and amenities of the charming village of São Vicente, set in one of the most beautiful valleys in Madeira.
The house consists of three floors. The ground floor has a large garage with electric doors, an office/third bedroom and a storeroom/utility room. There is further outside space for gated off-street parking.
The first floor features a light and airy living room with floor to ceiling glass sliding doors opening onto a large terrace with panoramic sea views, and at the back leading to a pretty, well-stocked garden filled with bougainvillea and oleander. There is also a fully-fitted kitchen with sea views and a toilet.
On the second floor there are two double bedrooms and a bathroom. Both bedrooms feature stunning sea views and benefit from fitted wardrobes. The master bedroom has a small balcony.
Perched on a hill overlooking the ocean, the property enjoys all the benefits of its coastal location without any risk of flooding or wave damage.
It offers excellent rental potential. São Vicente is 40-minutes drive from the airport near Santa Cruz and half an hour from downtown Funchal. It is close to some of the best levada walks and mountain trails on the island as well as the natural lava pools of Porto Moniz and Seixal. The area is becoming popular with surfers as well as walkers and cyclists.
Sao Vicente is one of Madeira's prettiest towns, situated in a beautiful valley on the north of the island, with shops, cafes and bars looking out to sea.
A picturesque stroll from the sea along a gentle stream takes you further inland to the main village with its 1694 chapel built on the spot where St Vincent is claimed to have appeared.
The Sao Vicente Chapel has a stunning location, on an outcrop of rock right in the middle of the seafront.
