A magnificent modern-styled villa, the cliff-top Boathouse boasts stunning, uninterrupted Atlantic ocean and river valley views.
Situated in one of Europe’s most pristine nature reserves, this 4 level, 7 bedroom, 10 bathroom, infinity pool property is beautifully unique.
Given its peerless national park location and along with recent legislation, nothing like the Boathouse is likely to be built ever again.
Less than 2 hours from Faro airport and 3 hours from Lisbon, this peaceful setting is close to some of the region's best golf courses, vineyards, surf spots and coastal hiking trails.
Soak up the sun by the private pool or wander down to the beach and enjoy the spectacular Atlantic surf. Remote, serene and breathtakingly picturesque, the nature reserve's unspoiled beauty is directly accessible from the doorstep.
The unrestricted views to the front of the Boathouse encompass the large expanse of the river and valley with the Monchique Mountains providing the staging for the rising sun. The rear affords views over idyllic marine wilderness, Amoreira Bay's golden beaches, sand dunes and crashing surf, to the ocean's horizon.
Recently completed to the highest build standard, it occupies four levels – the upper two floors offering expansive deck areas with four discreet outdoor dining spaces. Two of these areas are sail-shaded and sheltered from prevailing winds.
Given its exposed location, the Boathouse was designed to the most thermally and acoustically efficient build standard. A steel-framed structure is encased with polyurethane ensuring it is cool in summer and warm in winter. Solar panels provide all the hot water, underfloor and pool heating, as appropriate.
The courtyard apartment comprises a full kitchen, living room with adjoining bathroom, two bedrooms with full en suite bathrooms as well as access to the sauna (comfortably seating six), bathroom and air-conditioned mini gym.
Five bedrooms are situated on the pool deck and hot-tub level – two have ocean views and three face the river. Further up the spiral staircase is the main open-plan living area. Bathing the open-plan lounge, dining and well-appointed kitchen areas with light, expansive glass windows dramatically frame the captivating seascape, valley and mountain vistas. Above, and serviced by a dumb waiter from the kitchen, the upper deck's outdoor dining area comfortably seats twelve and basks in panoramic views.
The interior is all wood-floored (bathrooms are tiled) with all rooms offering under-floor heating and custom-built features. All woodwork and stainless steel features have been hand-crafted by local artisans, including the interior spiral staircase.
Solar-heated Infinity Pool
Sun yourself by the private, solar-heated, ionized infinity pool while watching the crashing surf. The deck also comprises a 4 person hot-tub, shower and children's paddling pool. The 10m x 5m chemical-free infinity pool affords wonderful seascapes and contains a seated jacuzzi area. A concealed electrically operated pool cover provides child protection.
