5 Bedroom Luxury Modern Villa, Praia da Luz, Portugal – Video Tour

Known as ‘the floating house’, the magnificently luxury modern Praia de Luz villa sits like a glittering diamond amidst the dramatic landscape of Rocha Negra and enjoys inimitable views of the delightful town below and of course the azure oceans of the Western Algarve.

The unique design of this five bedroom palatial getaway hugs the contours of the land to give the illusion of a home that somehow floats out of the hillside unsupported. A delightful blend of gleaming white, clean lines and 2.8m high windows ensure that the panoramic views afforded by the home are its star attraction. But the home’s interiors are equally stunning.

Built using the influences of the German Bauhaus movement of the last century, the villa is both functional and beautiful. The property’s prestigious architects have created an effortlessly comfortable open plan living space, complete with cavernous ceilings and an ingenious design that seamlessly blends inside with outside, providing an imposing 8600sqm property that incorporates everything necessary in a home from home.

Elegantly spread over two floors, each of the villa’s five bedroom’s are impeccably finished and come complete with luxurious en suite.

Luxury Master Bedroom

A central courtyard at the heart of the home with fire pit and Jacuzzi area is the idea meeting point for residents to meet.

Luxury Living Space

The main living areas are on the ground floor, including a fully equipped Smeg/De Dierch kitchen that opens out onto an incredible outdoor kitchen on the adjacent terrace that will make al fresco cooking a pleasure. And you’ll find plenty of places to dine both inside and outside too.

The chic and minimalist dining/living area is divided by a fabulous double sided fireplace and provides access to the main terraces and wading pool. A fully independent guest suite sits on the ground floor which could easily provide the perfect area for a games room. There’s also a fabulous retro cinema room, a butler’s kitchen, laundry area and a garage big enough for as many as five vehicles.

This luxury modern villa includes all mod cons including underfloor heating throughout, video surveillance, exterior and interior alarms and a fully controllable home system to access a central movies and music library, security and lighting. The hard lines and modern materials of the villa are softened by the natural feel of the landscape design including a driveway of wild lavender and pomegranate, almond and wild fig trees in the lower garden. There’s also a picture postcard mulberry tree and historic well tucked in a corner – the perfect hideaway within a hideaway!

Villa Location

This second to none property has won a number of prestigious awards and been featured in The Irish Independent, The Sunday Times and several design and architecture publications. In addition, it made the top 50 list of Europe’s best beach villas in the times. So if you’re seeking an achingly contemporary luxury villa with views to die for and unbelievable interiors then this fantastic five bed villa could be for you.
