This beautiful house with 4 levels to it, is for sale in Funchal on the island of Madeira, a popular tourist and retirement destination. This property is centrally located, with easy access to the city (3km) and the airport (15km). It is on the bus route, with a bus stop right outside. It is large enough to be easily converted into a Bed & Breakfast, Guest House or hostel.
Situated on the side of a mountain its entrance is below street level. There is a ramp leading to a spacious single garage. Below the garage is an outside kitchen, dining area, which could easily be a communal kitchen/eating spot.
The view of the house from the road, shows 2 doors leading out onto the front veranda, one leading into the lounge area and the other into a room which could be a separate dining room, study, office. On this level there is an open plan dining room and lounge, which lead onto a veranda with views of the mountain side and ocean. There is also a beautiful oak kitchen with an electric glass top stove and built in oven. This kitchen is in an excellent condition as the previous occupants only used the outside kitchen. There is also a tiled guest toilet. There are 2 beautifully tiled staircases with frosted glass windows one leading upstairs and another leading downstairs (3rd level).
Upstairs are 3 generous, carpeted bedrooms, the main bedroom with a walk in closet and a bathroom en suite, (with a bath no shower). The other 2 spacious bedrooms have built in cupboards and all the bedrooms have doors opening onto an outside veranda with the same views as the one below. There is a bathroom with a shower to cater for these 2 bedrooms.
Downstairs (3rd level) is a large open room that can be used for many things. Put in a pub and a games room, or convert it into 2 separate rooms to be used as dormitories. In our pictures it was used as a tv room and dining area. There is also a utilities room and bathroom with a shower on this level. It leads out to a balcony with stairs leading down to the 4th level.
On the 4th and lowest level there is a self-contained one bedroom flat, unfortunately we have no pictures of it.
