For sale in Olhão - classic fisherman’s house in historic centre

olhaoCentreOffered for sale, a traditional 3-bedroom townhouse in the popular historic heart of Olhão, a property skilfully renovated with care for modern comfort: this charming house is ready to move in to.

On a quiet pedestrian street, one minute’s walk from the famous fish and vegetable markets and the Ria Formosa waterfront with bars and cafes, this classic old house has been restored in the traditional style of the region, maintaining the vaulted ceilings, using reclaimed terracotta tiles and with new wooden doors and windows to original designs.

Bathrooms and kitchen are in keeping while benefitting from modern fittings. The house has been re-wired, with new plumbing throughout, and is wired for internet. The living room and two of the three bedrooms are pre-installed for air conditioning.

The wide hallway and large living room are an unusual and welcome bonus for this type of house in Olhão

The hallway leads to the spacious living room with wood-burning stove and to the dining area which gains natural light from a traditional skylight.

The kitchen adjoins through a wide opening and features marble countertops, fridge-freezer, dishwasher, ceramic induction hob, built-in oven, extractor fan and sink as well as ample storage space.

The ground floor bathroom has a lavatory, bidet, basin with storage, walk-in shower, heated towel rail plus plenty of storage shelves and cupboards.

Double bedroom or study gains light from an interior window.

Traditional Santa Catarina tiled stairway to upper floor with daylight flooding through skylights in the wood-beamed ceiling. Halfway up the stairs is a large, semi-open storage area for cases and boxes.

This floor has two double bedrooms, one of which could be a study or studio. One room is reached from a covered area on a patio which houses the washing machine and electric water cylinder. Reclaimed Santa Catarina terracotta tiles cover the entire upper floor, inside and out.

There is a second shower room on this floor with lavatory, basin, extractor fan and natural light.

The large south-facing terrace has a raised outdoor dining and seating area with built-in under-lit benches. The pergola is covered by white split-canes to offer summertime shade.

Outdoor kitchen area with sink, fridge recess, electric points and storage.

A further original Olhão staircase leads from the first floor terrace to a large, private ‘mirante’ or viewing terrace which has space for sunbeds, additional seating. Equipped with electricity points, flush wall lighting, this private area offers distant views to Farol on the island of Culatra.

Both old and new refurbishment techniques have created a dry, clean, bright and airy home for holiday use or permanent residence.

The historic cobbled centre of this traditional working city now is hugely sought after by those seeking a relaxed but interesting lifestyle in the Algarve.

The opportunity to own a fully renovated house in this prime location is increasingly rare, especially one that has been reborn through the skills and dedication of locally employed craftsmen.
