Dream Houses :: Living in a sunny spot
It is common today to dream of living in the sun. More than a reference to living in a space bathed by the king of stars, this analogy leads us to an idealisation of a quiet life, surrounded by well-being and easy living. The sunlight shines, warms and brings comfort. “Living in the sun” is just like taking these cosy characteristics to what we dream of achieving in life. When we are able to find them in the place where we live, life becomes almost perfect. This is what happens in the house we are about to discover.
Quinta da Marinha is one of the most privileged urban areas of Cascais. With an exceptional location, both in terms of landscapes as well as accesses, residents are able to reach the International Airport of Lisbon in about twenty minutes. The whole atmosphere of this location is just a perfect harmony between refined life quality and serenity of spirit of those who seem to be on endless holidays.
Involved in the surroundings, we set a date with this exceptional home, a bold architectural project, with a modern distinctive design. Comfortably installed in a private 2.400 m2 lot, surrounded by green areas and constantly exposed to the sun, given the absence of obstacles around it, this house breathes well-being and harmony as well as all the comfort you could need if you enjoy living an intense urban life, yet appreciate the chance of daily escapes, diving into nature.
A project of the famous architect Eduardo Anahory and acquired by its current owner, while it was still a construction project, it suffered several adaptions to better suit his preferences. Among these we highlight the construction of an amazing outdoor barbecue area, the transformation of two bedrooms, on the upper floor, into a massive master suite, equipped with two bathrooms and an ample dressing room, totalising more than 60 m2 of useful area. Luxury with functionality is the best possible description.
The garden and the pool were also specially designed in a rock garden, with low maintenance requirements, and with a special focus in the waterfall that feeds the swimming pool. From there, you have an extensive view over the Oitavos golf course, with the Atlantic Ocean on the horizon as background.
As for the details of this house, a certain touch of Brazilian lifestyle is undeniably present, fruit of the current owner’s family origins. The house was transformed in order to create different environments for welcoming and entertaining family and friends, through several ample spaces, as the already mentioned outdoor area, the living room with a superb view over the golf course and the sea, the cinema room, with capacity for twenty people, soundproofed and well-equipped.
As you walk around the place, both indoors and outdoors, besides the details relating to beauty and comfort, visible in both areas of great dimension as well as the materials used, there is one thing that we have to mention – the abundance of sunlight that invades the house and intensively illuminates every single corner.
For those who value a calm, safe and healthy family life, associated with the comfort of having a discretely luxurious house where nothing is missing, this house at Quinta da Marinha, is clearly an elected place. Visit it and get to know it. Who knows if you’ll finally meet the “place in the sun”, that you’ve always wanted?
