In today’s post we are going to present you a fascinating, modern family house with a chic wooden veranda, in Melroeira – Ourém, Portugal, which was built on a slightly sloping farmland. The villa with the impressive monolithic appearance was designed by architects from the Portuguese agency Filipe Saraiva Arquitectos. The House Ourém extends over an area of ​​410 square meters. The unique design of the house was inspired by the way a child draws a house from simple 5 lines, namely a composition of a rectangle and two squares. The pentagon at the front of the charming house with a wooden veranda consists of five lines that represent the four walls and the roof. The rectangle stands for the door, while the squares form the windows.

On the side of the building, a path leads to the entrance. The front door is under a canopy made of weathered steel. Viewed from the inside, the wooden door is in a small niche. A music room was set up right next to it. This room is furnished with a chic lounge chair and record player. A glass wall with a black steel frame offers a view of the garage. At the other end of the room, the music room goes over to the main living area. In the bright living area with a high ceiling, there is a large, round table surrounded by several black chairs. The black color of the seats harmonizes with the black window frames of the large window front. The wooden material of the dining table looks just as unanimous in combination with the wonderfully beautiful wooden veranda. Thanks to the large window front, the cozy and spacious living area is beautifully flooded with light.

The living room has a fireplace that fills the room with warmth and comfort. Behind the sitting area is another lounge area with a low chest of drawers and a TV. The kitchen is also located in the open living area. The wooden cabinets add a natural charm to the white painted room. A wooden staircase connects the open living area with the rest of the rooms of the beautiful villa with a wooden veranda. The bedrooms, the bathroom with the shower and the home office with the library are located on the upper floor. In the elegant bathroom, the free-standing, oval bathtub offers a view of the small inner courtyard with a small raised terrace and sandy floor. From the open living area you have access to the covered wooden veranda, which has been set up as a cozy dining and lounge area. From there you have a view of the surrounding farmland and the road. A stepping stone garden path leads to the idyllic front garden with seating area, water feature and a fireplace.
