Luxury living at Quinta do Lago estate, Portugal


Quinta do Lago resort is a development of 550 villas and privately owned condominiums in Partugal’s Algarve region. This property is part of the San Lorenzo North enclave which is the latest and penultimate group of properties to be released at the estate.

Adelto published a story last year when the exclusive plots were announced. The luxury villas feature contemporary, cutting edge residences designed by architects, De Blacam & Meagher and architectural development group IMAESTRI.

The San Lorenzo North show villa meanwhile has been designed by Irish architects de Blacam & Meagher, who have taken great pride in creating a signature property for Quinta do Lago. The vision behind the show villa was described by the architectural duo as  “imaginative but respectful of the resort’s surroundings”. The villa’s white, cubic style exterior “forms a contrast between the green of the landscape and the deep blue of the sky” and can be likened to neighbouring Spain and their traditional Moorish villages. Overlooking the immaculately kept San Lorenzo Golf Course, this villa is situated in one of Quinta do Lago’s most coveted locations and is surrounded by umbrella pine trees.

The five-bedroom villa features a double height living room with wall-to-wall sliding glass doors which open onto an expansive terrace. The villa’s terracotta ceilings and prominent Alvar Aalto style fireplace, which echoes the Finnish  architect’s famous designs, contribute to spacious living areas complemented by strong modern features. Described by de Blacam & Meagher as the “signature element of the house” an external living room has been created for al fresco entertaining.
