Anyone who knows the coastal area of Porto well, the urban beaches with their small sandy beaches, the magical sunsets at Foz do Douro, the cosmopolitan terraces, the neighbourhood grocery stores, the restaurants that fuse traditional and gourmet, the buildings with their classic architecture and pastel colours with their balconies facing the ocean, the seafront and the belvederes, kings of photogenic beauty, among so many other inimitable attributes, won't hesitate for a second to answer: the waterfront that follows that succession of beaches - Praia do Ourigo, Praia dos Ingleses, Praia da Luz, Praia do Homem do Leme - until you reach Matosinhos is the most irresistible place in the city to live and buy a house.
It is precisely in the best location of this coastal corridor, which stretches for around five kilometres, that a new development of breathtaking aesthetics is being built. The only thing more extraordinary would be if it consisted of condominiums aimed at individuals or small families, and not large families, as is traditional in this noble area, where most of the dwellings have several bedrooms and several living rooms and several floors. It's almost unbelievable, as it's so rare in this part of the city, but this brand new apartment block defies the rule and is really designed for those who want to acquire fractions with generous areas, but of typology T1 or, at most, T2. Can you imagine a better way to begin or to restart your life?
The 2-bedroom flats, besides being flooded with unique light (advice: never underestimate Porto's silver light!), have highly improbable areas, ranging from 75 m2 to 150 m2. Almost all have independent entrance, balcony and beautiful sea views. On the top floor of the building, a stunning 125m2 penthouse brings life in this building, whose interiors have been worked down to the smallest detail of luxury, closer to a dream.
Located right in front of the beach and in a cosy neighbourhood where everything is done on foot, this luxurious building, which combines classic Porto architecture, characterised by tall windows and old shutters, with the lightest of contemporary design sprinkled throughout every corner, is a kind of golden ticket that will only be available to eight owners. In all, there are 8 units designed with high quality materials, some of which have their own entrance, balconies and unalterable sea views. The completion of the construction work is scheduled for the first half of 2022, but the flats are already being marketed in plan by LUXIMOS Christie's International Real Estate.
Common to all apartment's is the reinforced door with security key, the intercom with video and audio incorporated, the air conditioning hidden in the ceiling of all rooms, the double glazing with thermal insulation, the floor in solid oak wood with double layer, the ceilings carved and painted in white plaster matt, as the cabinets, lacquered in the same tone. The kitchens, in matt grey, are fitted with Bosch or similar brand appliances. The main bathrooms have natural stone from the centenary Roca company; for the social bathrooms a classic decoration grey was chosen that highlights the marble veins. In the common areas the natural stone floor, the double plaster walls painted grey and the Schindler lifts, a Swiss brand that has been the market leader in safety and mobility for over 100 years, stand out.
A better location was impossible: in front, the sea; in the back, all the accessible services just a few metres away, from bakery, stationery shop, pharmacy, grocery shop, post office, schools, restaurants, wine, decoration and fashion shops. At five minutes drive, the Serralves Garden, the City Park, the Casa da Música and the city centre of Porto.
