A truly stunning contemporary haven, Villa Andrade occupies an unrivalled elevated position overlooking the magnificent harbour at Funchal and the blue waters of the Atlantic. With breathtaking ocean views and the town’s charming centre just a short walk away, this unique residence makes for a very special holiday.
This impressive architect-designed property is certainly a head-turner, with its living spaces located on its top floor, maximising the glorious views across Funchal’s terracotta rooftops to the Atlantic.
The epitome of minimalist design with every detail scrupulously considered, the house has an innate sense of calm. Decorated throughout in stylish muted greys with a splash of a colour in the bedrooms, its polished hardwood flooring bringing a beautiful natural contrast, a look conceived and realised by award-winning designer Nini Andrade. Technology has been creatively applied for effortless living, from the centrally controlled lighting and electrically adjustable blinds to the smooth lift that glides between the four floors.
The top floor is undoubtedly the villa’s most distinguished feature, a jaw-dropping open plan lounge, dining room and kitchen with an entire glass wall on one side leading out to a fabulous balcony with uninterrupted panoramic views. The living room is beautifully furnished with huge designer leather sofas while the indoor and outdoor dining suites are smart and contemporary.
The fully fitted kitchen is sleek and elegant, with floor-to-ceiling slate-grey cabinets and the latest appliances. A beechwood breakfast bar provides a more casual spot for a snack or to chat over a drink as a meal is being prepared, though the balcony will undoubtedly be the favourite dining venue with its incredible bird’s eye view.
A clever revolving door leads outside to the exquisite private pool, a 16 metre long strip that can be heated free of charge in the winter months, fringed with pristine timber decking and exotic palm trees. It’s a wonderfully peaceful place to relax and enjoy a cooling dip at leisure.
Not one but two superb games rooms are positioned on the ground floor and first floor respectively, superbly equipped with a quality modern steel pool table and table football, a Playstation games console and enormous flat screen television providing endless entertainment for all ages.
The uncluttered bedrooms are simple and serene, with fitted wardrobes and sliding patio doors to welcome in the light. Each one has a sophisticated en suite bath or shower room designed with clean, simple lines and appointed to the highest specification. The master bedroom boasts a Philippe Stark freestanding bathtub and walk-in waterfall shower. Four of the bedrooms are located on the second floor while the fifth is down the dazzling hand-built steel and stone stairs on the first floor.
The beauty of Villa Andrade’s location is its proximity to Funchal’s delightful town centre restaurants, bars and boutique shops, all just a short walk down the hill. Madeira’s bustling, cosmopolitan capital is awash with historic Portuguese buildings, pavement cafés, colourful jacaranda trees and vibrant flowers, as well as being a port of call for some of the world’s most exclusive cruise ships.
