Description

Location:

It is located at the highest point of the city of Porto which allows you to enjoy the most beautiful views over the cities of Porto, Vila Nova de Gaia, Matosinhos, Valongo and Gondomar, as well as the Atlantic Ocean and the Douro River.

It is one of the most beautiful and noble streets in the city of Porto due to its vast architectural history, present in the various buildings present and is just a few meters away you will find the famous Santa Catarina Street; the famous Majestic Café; the Porto Coliseum; Avenida dos Aliados; the riverside area; the Clérigos Tower, these are just some examples of what you can find at a short walk.

Parish of Bonfim:

“Bonfim is one of the 20 coolest neighborhoods in the world in 2020. It is number 14 in the choices of readers and editors of Time Out.“ 09.10.2020

In 14th place, the Porto neighborhood keeps alive the genuine identity of the city, which begins to disappear in more central areas. A kind of artistic underworld from Invicta, largely due to the Faculty of Fine Arts and galleries. Bonfim also stands out for its strong community spirit, for its proximity shopping, there are small cafes and shops, some of the most traditional restaurants in the city, but also more modern spaces with signature cuisine. Here you can enjoy relaxing strolls through the ever-increasing pedestrian space, which invites you to explore neighborhood life on foot, walking the streets that preserve traditional features of urban architecture and hiding places in the middle of nature, such as the Nova Sintra Park, overlooking the Douro river.

About the project:

This stunning Townhouse was born from the rehabilitation of a 19th-century Bourgeois Mansion with 4 floors, all renovated with premium finishes of the highest quality, with an architectural project by the renowned architect Nuno Pinto Cardoso and magnific work in charge of FL Constructions, a company with a vast experience that will rehabilitate the Louvre Hotel in Porto.

All the works of artistic restoration of the ceilings, plaster, and the use of gold leaf were carried out by the same company that do the restoration work of the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican, the Heritage of Time Company. The gardening and landscaping work was carried out by the renowned company Magnólia - Gardening and Landscaping, Lda.

The owner of this unique and exceptional Townhouse did not look at costs to not only preserve as much as possible all the original elements of the time, such as: old riga floors, hydraulic mosaic floors, and Viúva Lamego tiles facade, high ceilings with 16 ft high, as well as applying the most modern electrical and electronic equipment, such as: internal hydraulic elevator for access to all floors, home automation system, alarm and video surveillance by rooms, Italian radiators from Patius, solar panels, water cistern, light sensors, Italian design lamps, doors to the bathroom in Corien and air conditioning on the top floor.

All this to create the best possible symbiosis between the past, requalifying it and introducing the future to modernize, conceiving perfection through this unique and luxurious Townhouse

Floor distribution:

Upon entering this Townhouse we are surprised by the imposing Hall with its frescoes and plaster figures with gold leaf worked to the smallest detail.

On the -1 floor - we have a garage for 2 cars, laundry, a suite for a maid, wine cellar, pantry, storage, technical area, and safe, the hydraulic lift gives access to all floors.

On the ground floor - we find 3 rooms (living room, dining room, and library), a fully equipped kitchen with top-of-the-range appliances, a pantry, 2 bathrooms, a stunning winter Garden all recovered at the time, and the grand staircase central overlooking the stained glass skylight.

On the 1st floor - the rest area starts with 3 bedrooms, 1 living room and 1 bathroom divided by a private area and a bathing area.

On the 2nd floor - it continues with the same theme with 3 more bedrooms, 1 living room and 1 bathroom divided by a private area and a bathing area.

The Garden:

Leaving the Townhouse to the garden we have a shed with a well that can work as a barbecue and at the other end of this first garden we have an annex with 12 m2, with the technical and storage area on the ground floor and on the first floor a bathroom.

This enormous garden, of 583 m2, consists of two floors, the first on the same floor as the ground floor of the Townhouse and the second garden on a higher floor where an infinity pool with 12 m2 x 4 m2 (depth 1.40 m in the lowest part and 1.80 m in the deepest part) is being built, with pre-installation for water heating.

From this fantastic garden you can enjoy breathtaking views over the cities of Porto, Vila Nova de Gaia, Valongo, and Gondomar and from the front of the Townhouse, from the top floor, you can contemplate the city of Porto and the wonderful Atlantic Ocean. Let yourself be lost in time relaxing in this garden, next to the pool, and watch the most beautiful sunset, every day, for the rest of your life.

About Porto:

Capital and gateway to the north of Portugal, Porto is both the city that provided a nation with a name and a fortified wine known world-wide: port.

With its splendid geographical location on the mouth of the river Douro and architectural heritage of exceptional quality, the historic center of Porto was declared UNESCO World Heritage in 1996. Porto is the capital of the North and the second-largest city in the country; its hard-working inhabitants are noted for their commercial enterprise, always standing firm against outside impositions and foreign invaders, which explains why Porto has become known as the «unvanquished» city.

In addition to its history, any visitor to Porto will be quickly impressed by the forceful character both of the city and its inhabitants.

If you want to get to know the city better, we recommend a gentle stroll through its streets, taking time to admire the typical granite houses and monuments, enjoying a tram ride along the banks of the river, or even going for a boat ride under the city ́s six bridges, from where you can enjoy an entirely different view of the city. These itineraries seek to demonstrate the impressive contrasts this city has to offer. The "Baixa (Downtown)" of Porto, with all the rhythms of city life, its movement, and intense retailing. There is a very peculiar expression that bestows a Nordic, mercantile tone onto a city that is both spiritually and intensely baroque. In sharp contrast, in the Serralves Park, there is the sheer modernity of the building housing the Museum of Contemporary Art, and the romantic, soothing surroundings of the surrounding leafy park.

This property is eligible for the Golden Visa, which grants buyers and their family members the right to live, work and study in Portugal and permits free movement in Europe’s Schengen Area. Opportunities to become a permanent resident or citizen is possible after five years. We have partners that can support through the Golden Visa process.
