Allow us to set the scene; you’ve had a long day exploring the local delights. You arrive home to your beautiful villa and head straight up to the balcony to relax with a chilled glass of Porto wine.

Step inside with a virtual tour
This luxury villa is the perfect holiday home – somewhere to enjoy free time or even work from. But don’t just take our word for it, take a look yourself by using the virtual tour below. We recommend going to the upper floor to see how truly stunning the views are.
A small town within greater Lisbon, often described as the “Notting Hill of Portugal” and one of the most sought after areas to live in the country, the neighbourhood of Campo de Ourique leads a peaceful but colourful life of its own.
A mix of late 19th century buildings, Campo de Ourique is full of traditional shops, restaurants and markets – but remains residential and “a best kept secret”, having not yet been discovered by mass tourism.
Currently for sale at €7,750,000, the four bedroom villa comes with river views galore and promises privacy and security. With four bedroom suites, plus a staff suite, seven car garage, gym, cinema and beautiful garden, you’d barely need to leave home.
The ground floor provides access to the property via the garage which, as well as having room for seven cars, has plenty of storage space.
The first floor is truly the heart of the home, with a large lounge and fireplace, beautiful library, games room, office, movie theatre and patio.
The dining room is located on the second floor, as an open mezzanine, along with the kitchen which is fully equipped with Sub-Zero appliances and a laundry area.
Take the lift or stairs up a level for the private section of the house. A stunning principal suite that includes two closets and bathroom, and three further suites for the family.
Upon the fourth floor a quiet oasis awaits – enjoy the terrace which features a jacuzzi and magnificent river views. Head back inside for the living room, gym, sauna and Turkish bath.
