About the property

Rio living in style

A gracious family home owned by an Anglo-Brazilian family. Recently renovated and re-furbished, the house offers an eclectic mix of old and new styles providing a wonderful indoor/outdoor entertaining space, is within walking distance of the golden sands of Barra beach and located close to local amenities including restaurants, supermarket and shops. Recent infrastructure developments for the Olympics make access to Ipanema, Copacabana and the historic centre a mere 20-30 minutes by underground train.

The house is sympathetically laid out to maximise the sense of comfort and to enjoy the unusually large garden. On the ground floor there is a large open-plan living-room with 2 seating areas and a dining area leading through glass doors onto an airy varanda and outdoor entertaining area. Here you'll find another dining area, BBQ, lounge area, sun beds and the swimming pool as well as a pool house, outdoor shower and toilets. Leading off the dining area is the the kitchen which is fully equipped, including Nespresso machine, mixer, and child-friendly dining with a breakfast bar that seats 4.

The house has 5 en-suite bedrooms and comfortably sleep 12. There is one double-bedroom on the ground floor with a sofa bed whilst upstairs there are a further 4 en-suite bedrooms, 2 with double beds, one with twin beds and the last laid out for children with a mezzanine and 4 single beds. There is also a cot and linen for a baby. 3 of the bedrooms have french windows leading onto a balcony overlooking the garden.

The house is part of a small community of 5 houses which share a security guard located directly in front of the house. This, plus 2 sets of electronic gates and 7 security cameras make the house particularly secure; in the 10 years of ownership, the family have never had any security issues.

About Vanessa

I am an Anglo-Brazilian living in London but maintaining strong ties to my home town of Rio. I love this town and enjoy making sure that visitors have the most wonderful vacation whilst staying at our house.

Vanessa purchased this house in 2005

Why Vanessa chose Barra da Tijuca

This is a much loved family holiday home where my family has created countless wonderful memories. The setting is quiet and secure with an unusually large outdoor area allowing one to happily spend all day at home enjoying the pool and BBQ. The beach (and a fab surfing school!) is a 10minute walk away as are a selection of local restaurants and amenities. Recent infrastructure investments into the Rio subway system mean tourist sites and other beaches are easily accessible allowing the best of both worlds; a spacious home to relax in whilst exploring this vibrant city.
