Casa dos Moinhos

Cascais, Malveira da Serra V4 V4

Casa dos Moinhos (Windmill House) is a beautiful Malveira property built in 1951 and set in 3,200 m2 of terraced land on the top of a hill overlooking the picturesque village of Malveira de Serra. The house faces south with the the stunning Serra de Sintra national park behind it. Built from the local pink granite, the house truly gives you a sense of belonging in its privileged location. Three windmills situated just behind give the house its name, one of which has been converted into a charming villa, and the remaining two, now in ruins, are reminiscent of bygone eras.

The gates open into a spacious calçada (cobbled) courtyard that has a double garage door and access to the ground floor. Stone steps lead up to a large covered terrace and the front door. The hallway leads into a spacious living room with a large granite fireplace, where the terracotta parquet tiles, traditional furniture and pink granite pillars all combine to give a sense of the houses’ history. A beautifully crafted wooden partition opens into the dining room, comfortably seating 8 around a sturdy oak table.

The charming kitchen is decorated in Portuguese tiles with marble work surfaces and an antique oven and stove. Modernisation is required with some new appliances but the kitchen’s character is truly unique.

A guest bathroom is situated off the entrance hall and a small corridor leads you into the master bedroom which has a separate bathroom and also opens into an amazing music room/library with large panoramic windows that take full advantage of the south facing views towards Cascais and beyond. The furnishing and decor has a stylish 60/70s feel, perfect to relax and listen to your favourite tunes whilst gazing out the window.

The top floor is reached up some curved wooden stairs, accessing three bedrooms. The master bedroom is en suite with a youthful style of decor, complementing the music room. Another double with two large singles also has access to a separate bathroom and is more traditional in style. The final bedroom is currently used for storage but can easily be renovated.

Stairs also lead down to the basement floor which has some natural light but is in need of full renovation and could potentially be converted into a further studio apartment. The garage can also be accessed from here.

A secluded swimming pool is situated on the other side of the courtyard and surrounded by lush vegetation, giving the terracotta patio a real sense of privacy and protection from the wind.

The property is large, has outbuildings and an abandoned swimming pool which can add real potential and value to the investment by renovating or repurposing existing structures or splitting the land in two and developing a separate house project.

Private Gross Area: 241m²/359m² of constructed area. Additional features include: fireplace, kitchen pantry, a wine cellar, laundry room, central heating and air conditioning, a small independent apartment with a bathroom (lower ground floor), a garage and a private well.
