Perfectly poised with a panoramic view of the ocean and the Algarve coastal village of Praia da Luz, this modern masterpiece is a premier example of the modernist Bauhaus school of architecture and design. Bauhaus incorporates the philosophy that form follows function and any unnecessary decoration is to be avoided at all cost. It is a philosophy that has led to the incorporation of “industrial” materials such as concrete, steel and glass into clean, uncluttered and no-hassle open plan residential living in this sensational villa.
The villa’s flawless structure, of great visual lightness, seems to be suspended above the scenic surroundings. Through the incorporation of almost austere geometric form and pure white materials, the villa offers a refined level of simplicity. In true modernist style, the villa is pure, clean, light and airy. The villa’s ethereal beauty is further enhanced by extensive use of glass, clean lines and pristine whites. Where it is elegant, it is understated; where it is luxurious, it is sleek and uncluttered.
The home is dazzling in its practicality and elegance. There is an other-worldly beauty to it. Inside is 602m² of truly understated luxury, evident throughout its five bedrooms and living areas. The kitchen is equipped with high-end appliances, there is a home cinema and games area. The colour palette is white upon white, done to dazzling effect.
A home automation system controls lighting, security and media systems. Besides air conditioning, there is underfloor heating for those cool months along the Algarve. A garage provides storage for four vehicles.
Out of doors, enjoy the show-stopping double swimming pool that seems suspended in the air, plus al fresco dining and fire pit areas. Opening to a stunning terrace, the impressive 40 metres glass frontage welcomes the abundance of natural light.
Together with the open plan interior, it is all designed to make the most of seamless indoor-outdoor living. The property spans 8,600m² of space and is landscaped with fig, olive and almond trees, which blend ideally into the National Ecological Reserve which surrounds it. The starkly beautiful landscape sits beneath magnificent cloudless skies.
Just a 5-minute stroll away are the sandy beach and the promenade of Praia da Luz.
This is an architectural triumph of unrivalled style for a design-conscious property owner.
Price: €3.45 million.
