Traditional architecture and the most up-to-date of contemporary interior designs are beautifully interwoven throughout this stylishly restored country home which sits amidst picturesque countryside just a 10 minute drive from historic Ponte de Lima.
Sister property of Casa da Cuca and the recently completed creation of one of our most long-standing owners, Casa da Cuquinha is the result of many years of detailed planning and carefully executed design.
Originally a traditional family home and discretely attached to Casa da Cuca, it has been creatively transformed into an elegant retreat where contemporary décor and the most fashionable of appliances sit within original stone walls which with their traditional charm and eye-catching stone pillars preserve the building’s heritage with charming effect.
The three bedrooms have been designed to replicate the calm ambience of a smart hotel, their sleek furnishings, en suite facilities and muted colour schemes exuding style, elegance and a welcoming sense of comfort. In the spacious living areas, equally fashionable pieces are set off against a charming backdrop of open stone walls, exquisitely restored original features and polished wood ceilings, all of which call to mind the origins of this much loved home.
Step out from here onto the covered stone terrace that spans the property’s main façade and you will find yourself looking across lawned terraces and cobbled patios to the centrepiece of the beautifully tended garden: an attractive swimming pool bordered with slate tiles and an elegant waterfall feature which cascades down into a separate, smaller pool below.
To the side, a wonderfully spacious garden house provides the perfect setting for meals by the pool although those wishing to sample local cuisine will not have far to go since the attractive riverside town of Ponte de Lima is home to some excellent restaurants. This is just 5km from the house, whilst the sandy beaches of the Costa Verde are a 30 minute drive away. Closer to hand, a local shop selling basic items can be reached on foot via cobbled lanes from the house.
Terraced gardens mean that very young children may need supervision.
