With one of the most breath-taking views overlooking the valley of Sintra up to the Moorish Castle, with its history intact and almost one acre twenty of land, stands this 19th century villa in the center of Sintra. The 19th century had Romanticism as its cultural movement and it represents a stage of unique richness for Portugal. The magic of Sintra and the exoticism of its landscape was at this time discovered by foreign travellers and by the Portuguese aristocracy. It also became a privileged place for artists like Lord Byron and Eça de Queiroz. Sintra was declared "World Heritage." https://whc.unesco.org/en/list/723/ This charming villa is probably one of the only properties that manages to bring together the following three characteristics: - Location in the Center of the Village of Sintra, on a quiet street completely facing south;. - Stunning views of the Moorish Castle and Sintra's valley; - An architecture with character, where the sun shines inside the villa all day long. Through a small road in granite bricks and centennial trees you reach an iron gate that gives access to the parking lot. You can also access it from the street. The bow-window entrance hall reveals the spatiality of the house and the depth of the view to the castle. A second hall organizes the distribution. In front is the south-facing main room with exit to the garden and terrace. To the right the kitchen and the powder room. To the left is the library. A staircase to the right leads to the private area of the villa. On the second floor is the master bedroom en suite with a very spacious bathroom with huge windows. Both have great sun exposure and lovely views. Three other bedrooms share a large bathroom. On this floor you can also enjoy a terrace at the front and another at the back, both with wonderful views and the freshness of the canopy. On the second floor there are three bedrooms, a large bathroom, a kitchenette, and storage space. From a beautiful terrace you can enjoy the views to the center of the village. Through a staircase on the ground floor there is access to the lower floor of the house, which, given the slope of the terrain, also has direct access from the outside. This space has a lot of versatility! It also has two beautiful terraces with south orientation, at garden and the swimming pool level. At the southern end of the plot is a second house with a direct entrance from a one end street, completely independent from the main house.
