About Samantha Cox
I have lived on Madeira for 18 years (from UK). I own a Quinta in Ponta do Sol, which I renovated and have two studio apartments there for rental. The house in Funchal has been a dream to remodel and many friends and family have already stayed there and loved it!
Samantha Cox purchased this Villa in 2015
Why Samantha Cox chose Imaculado Coracao de Maria
When I saw this property it was dilapidated but utterly charming. The views were breathtaking as the position of the property and the location are in an excellent area. It took a year to restore the property as well as upgrading and enhancing the outdoor areas too. My family have all stayed in the house and are impressed with how it looks now to what it was year ago, they love the area and the convenience of somewhere in Funchal and within walking distance to town, whilst staying in a quiet and friendly neighbourhood. It is the perfect spot for New Year as the property offers the most spectacular vantage point to witness the wonderful fire works.....This goes for in June too!
What makes this Villa unique
I have always liked old properties (I restored my own Quinta in Ponta do Sol). This house has beautiful ceilings and wood floors, with a colonial frontage that appeals to me....I have never been so excited as I was when I purchased this property! It was a joy to renovate (although we encountered many problems along the way)! But the challenge of bringing it up to date, with a mix of modern, whilst keeping its authentic charms was fun and it works! The biggest wow when you walk through the gate is the fantastic view over the city and the harbour. One gets a birds eye view of the cruise liners as they sit in port and is an excellent spot to watch the fireworks during the Festival of the Atlantic and of course New Years Eve. Despite the charm of the house itself, the biggest asset and the wow factor is the view. As the house sits on its own elevation above the neighbors, the entire front of the property has an uninterrupted view of Funchal and the harbour. From the house all the front facing rooms have the same, as well as the balcony to sit from a higher vantage point. Since I bought the house and it has been the source of some attention from people I know, i have been asked to sell it, several times.....its a unique property, one that I will never find again and it's a keeper!
