The garage is tiled and has space for 2-3 cars and a wide electric sectional door.

The many exterior stairs are made of solid, 18cm thick, cut basalt stone steps, both the old house and the new one have car access and large parking spaces. The vegetation is a mixture of old trees of different kinds (eucalyptus, pine, til, oak and more), bushes, newly planted subtropical flowers like agapantus and strelizia, a area of many different young fruit trees by the artist studio and a large area that is being replanted.
The overall condition is very good, the whole property has been built only 10 years ago and the old house has been remodelled 3 years ago. The only faults which could be detected were some paint and plaster degradation by the entrance hall, the guest bedroom and the basement corridor of the new house due to humidity, the first two are easy to fix. Some external walls by the pool and in the garden need to be repainted.
UITZONDERLIJK LANDGOED MET PRIVACY OP EEN GROOT KAVEL IN FUNCHAL MADEIRA.
Dit buitengewone landgoed is waarschijnlijk één van de meest indrukwekkende landgoederen op Madeira.
Het is gelegen op een zeer ruim kavel, omgeven door een hoge muur en prachtige tuinen in een rustige buurt. Het landgoed bestaat uit vier objecten, allen met een eigen karakter en functionaliteit;
een woonhuis, een atelier, een traditioneel huis en een kapel.
Vanaf deze mooie locatie geniet elk object van volledige privacy en een rustgevend panoramisch zeezicht en op de hoofdstad Funchal. Alles is ruim van opzet en biedt alle ruimte en comfort voor een exquise levensstijl.
Het woonhuis bestaat uit twee etages.
Op de beneden etage bevinden zich de slaapkamers, een televisiekamer, een kantoor, de utility ruimtes, badkamers en een ruimte welke oorspronkelijk als binnen zwembad is gebruikt.
Op de eerste verdieping bevindt zich een ruime zitkamer en eetkamer en biedt toegang tot twee grote terrassen.
Het atelier is zeer ruim op gezet en biedt dankzij enorme raampartijen fantastisch licht. Uiteraard zijn er ook ander toepassingen mogelijk.
Het traditionele huis, is perfect gerestaureerd en omarmt je direct bij binnenkomst. De modernisering van keuken en sanitair garandeert comfort in combinatie met romantiek.
De Kapel uit 1680 is de kers op de taart. Alles is met liefde en vakmanschap gerestaureerd en biedt volop ruimte voor reflectie.
Het buitenzwembad is volledig voorbereid echter nooit afgebouwd.
