This house represents part of the history of the city of Olhao. it is probably the only and/or last old mansion still existing today in its original style, and also having a private garden of 120m2 in the city center, with swimming pool. It has been completely renovated by its current owners, with care and respect for the style of the time and the original materials, down to the last detail, and nevertheless having all the modern comforts.

Most of these mansions, of which very few still exist today, were built by wealthy industrial fish canneries and shipowners who, during the first half of the 20th century, made their fortune thanks to the abundance of fish in the Ria Formosa. Several of these industrialists, French, Spanish and Italians, transmitted this type of particularly opulent architecture to the small town of Olhão.

All the attributes that make this type of residence so rare are brought together in this one: the hydraulic mosaic floors, a traditional artisanal coating used at the beginning of the 20th century, the walls preserved in "Escaiola" a mural painting technique imitating marble, the ceilings all adorned with the original moldings and the floors of the rooms in the original parquet as well. Even more sumptuous, the 4m high ceilings which make this residence look like a Petit Palais!!!

The house welcomes us with a majestic entrance that already hints at the splendor that is to come. It is followed by an equally beautiful vestibule. The corridor adorned along its entire length by the walls in escaiola leads us to the discovery of 2 bedrooms, one of which is en suite, an office-library (which could also be a bedroom) a very cozy and bright living room surrounded by period moldings on the walls and the ceiling, the dining room which also has its molded ceiling and an exceptional volume and finally, two bathrooms, one of which is en suite.

The fully fitted kitchen equipped with a FALCON cooking range transports us to the countryside in a refined setting. The high French windows with small panes open onto a very quiet garden, and yet we are right in the center of the city. This 120m2 garden has a large terrace with summer kitchen. A mulberry tree, which sits in the garden since the origin of the house, brings a welcome freshness in summer. A lemon tree and a Monstera have also found their place there. The garden floor is covered with a Portuguese Calçada and the salt pool, surrounded by an exotic Ipé wood covering, is equipped with an electric curtain, diatomaceous earth filtration and automatic quality control. some water.

The staircase inside the house leads us to the 1st floor where the master-suite of more than 35m2 is located, very quiet, with a nice open view of the city and the garden. It has a private lounge, bedroom, dressing room and bathroom. The floor also includes a laundry room and access to the vast roof terrace of more than 127m2 well laid out, which has garden furniture under a pergola, various plants and water to water them. There is a beautiful view over the roofs of the city.

If you are looking for a truly exceptional and unique residence, especially in the beautiful city of Olhao, this one has every chance of seducing you.
