The location is one of the strong points of LUXIMOS Christie's new Private Condominium V Porto. It offers unique views over the Douro river and the gardens of the Palácio de Cristal. V Porto is an unparalleled development of villas and apartments and presents itself as a new way of living in Oporto.

D. Pedro V street, right in the centre of Porto, holds one of the greatest housing treasures of the city. This street, known for its history, tranquility, view and location, now has a fifth and determining element: a gated community, thought and designed to be inhabited by families. The V Porto is a human scale port, where the quality of life is at its highest, with an absolutely exceptional location, just a few minutes away from various points of interest, such as the Douro River or the renovated Super Bock Arena - Pavilhão Rosa Mota, but also from the Casa da Música, from neuralgic hospital centres in the city, the university, colleges and schools, art galleries, restaurants, supermarkets and shopping centres. And of course, two steps away from the highway.

The opportunity begins now. LUXIMOS Christie's has started the promotion of these apartments and villas in the national and international market.

V Porto is a private complex with a unique concept, covering a total area of 18,800m2, in which 16 villas will be built - most of them two bedroom duplexes with privileged interior access to the garage and common infrastructures - and 80 apartments, with typologies with one, two, three or even four bedrooms, distributed over four floors. On the first floor, the highlight goes to the magnificent terraces with green areas. From the second floor, there is a stunning view of the river, the gardens of the Palácio de Cristal, the houses on the hillside of Massarelos, the Arrábida Bridge and the Douro River estuary.

Therefore, the first difficult choice will be between the river view and the terraces with garden area, which vary between 50m2 and 200m2. But within this development it is possible to have the best of the three worlds: the view, the terrace and also the pool. And it is not an ordinary pool, for collective use, but a private one, at the top of the building, in a breathtaking setting. Some 3 bedroom and 4 bedroom apartments are, therefore, penthouses with access to a rooftop deck with a private pool, for a total of seven units.

Designed by the architect Arnaldo Brites, who bet on contemporary architecture, with soft and straight lines, this unrepeatable complex, protected and closed, is also distinguished by the emphasis placed on equipment and common areas. V Porto has 165 parking spaces prepared for loading electric cars, motorcycles and bicycles, in an area of 5,700m2; a common room for events with 150m2 with a pantry; a large garden with a children's playground; a gymnasium and also a padel field. All apartments and villas have the letter A for energy pre-certification.

If it is true that all properties are worth their external location and their internal surroundings, it is equally true that none of this would be enough without a construction that favours materials, finishes and areas. V Porto, promoted by Avenue, is a development that will give us something to talk about. Just to start, because all the balconies and terraces are an extension of the rooms and are facing south, with river views. But not only for that. Inside the houses, some of which are over 220m2, no detail was left to chance.

The windows have lacquered aluminum frames, thermal cut, with double glass. The adjustable blade blinds guarantee high thermal efficiency and the necessary insulation for a quiet life. The false ceilings with built-in LED floodlights, the multi-layered floors in afzelia wood, known for its beauty and natural resistance, the lacquered carpentry, the white Macedonian marbles and the thermal mirrors in the bathrooms provide comfort and aesthetic balance.

The kitchens are fully equipped with hobs, ovens, microwaves and frigdes, integrated in lacquered furniture, and sinks in stainless steel embedded in black granite tops from Zimbabwe, known for its elegance and durability. The laundries, in ceramic mosaic, already have a washing machine. The bathrooms have walls and flooring in crystal marble of Macedonia. The suite rooms have built-in wardrobes, lacquered and with adjustable shelves.

The private condominium V Porto is for sale in the national and international market through LUXIMOS Christie's International Real Estate. The work will be completed in June 2021.
