This splendid 5 – bedroom villa in Gerês is set next to the Caniçada Dam on Cávado´s river reservoir banks. A privileged location that allows a perfectly clear view over the extraordinary surrounding landscape, in a unique place of Minho´s region, in the north of Portugal.
The building, designed by the architect Eduardo Iglesias, is from the 90s and presents a distinctive design. The house is built in stone and wood and comprises 3 bedrooms on the ground floor and an extra bedroom on the upper floor (attic). In the interior organization of the house, the living room stands out. It has a connection to the kitchen, prevailing the presence of wide windows with views over the river and the dazzling surrounding natural landscape. The land, with about 800 sqm, and its connection to the river beach are also attributes of unique value.
The property, though in a very private area, stays at 7 minutes by car from “Vila do Gerês”, a mere 20 minutes from Braga´s city center and also at 1 hour away from Porto. The house is in a perfectly rural context, although benefiting from a very complete set of services, like shops and restaurants in “Vila do Gerês” and near Caniçada Dam.
The Caniçada Dam area, in Gerês, is known as a place of preference for those who seek an alternative to urban regions, offering a rural context with the privilege of proximity to the Cávado river. It´s an excellent choice due to the proximity to the city of Porto, which, by itself, brings uncountable attributes that make it a prime choice.
