Full Description

Villa 34 is a cosy family home, in a quiet and private cul-de-sac, with definitive stunning panoramic ocean and Funchal harbour views.

The construction area is 203m2 plus the large basement, and the private garden area comprising a south-facing terrace, colourful planters and an attractively landscaped garden.

This three bedroom villa type 1 was designed to take advantage of its hillside location. The access is made from behind at the upper floor, with the bedrooms distributed over a split level. The master bedroom and en-suite bathroom are at the top level, off the entrance hall, and thus quite private. The other two bedrooms are just a few steps down on an intermediate level, a perfect location for the children. They share a shower bathroom. All bedrooms feature carpet in the floors, vaulted ceilings with coved uplighting, and fitted wooden wardrobes.

There is a spacious storage room on the lower floor with a generously sized fitted wardrobe and a third fully fitted shower-bathroom. The lounge at the lower level offers a fireplace, and unobstructed panoramic views to the ocean and Funchal, contrasting with the adjacent mature & landscaped 138m2 garden. The extensive and bright open-plan family kitchen is paved with terracota tiles and is fully fitted with Bosch appliances. The external terrace, covered with a large pergola, is a privileged spot for summer breakfasts. The access to this pergoled terrace can be made directly from the kitchen or from the lounge area.

This family villa also features an extra terrace, adjacent to the pergoled one, and various storage rooms, which take advantage of the generously sized basement, at the garden level.

Villa 34 also benefits from privileged access to the facilities of the Palheiro Estate including the Village Forum heated outdoor pool; 18-hole Palheiro Golf course and Palheiro Spa. Palheiro Village offers a full property management service to look after your property whilst you area way and a rental service, if you also want to maximise your investment as a holiday property.

Palheiro Village, a private condominium designed by Michael Brown Associates, is built in a traditional external style and lies 10 minutes from the centre of Funchal & 15 minutes from the international airport. It offers a civilized, secure and restful environment to enjoy your holiday home or permanent residence.
