The charms of Portugal’s Algarve are many and well known: a warm, sunny climate; beautiful beaches; a vibrant culture; fine food and drink; and access to healthful recreational facilities, particularly an abundance of golf courses. The luxe Quinta do Lago resort was established 50 years ago to capitalise on those assets with world-class accommodations and amenities. One Green Way is easily accessible from the urban centres of Europe – a 2.5-hour flight from London and a 15-minute ride from the Faro Airport. As for the Algarve itself, this region of Portugal is a sophisticated traveler’s destination, with six Michelin-starred restaurants, 31 golf courses, and exclusive boutiques and shopping plazas. For qualifying entrepreneurs, professionals, retirees and high-net-worth individuals, there may be tax advantages for a decade as well.
Now the culmination of the residential offerings is the exclusive gated community of One Green Way, 89 superlative homes that edge the resort’s renowned North Course. Developed by SPX Capital with Green Jacket Partners and slated to be completed in 2024, One Green Way offers security, privacy, concierge services and state-of-the-art technology in exquisitely designed villas and apartments that invite a relaxed 21st-century lifestyle.
“This new development is all about ease of life and the residences will be ready for its owners to move straight in.”
—Daniel Schneider, Partner
Anchoring the new community is a 16,000-square-foot clubhouse where family and friends can gather, entertain and enjoy health and fitness activities. Along with an on-site restaurant and rooftop bar lounge, there’s a communal pool, a high-tech gym, a spa with sauna, and a TrackMan studio for golf aficionados.
After designing some of the most iconic projects in Dubai, the internationally known Cracknell landscape architects have arranged mature sustainable gardens and terraces throughout One Green Way, incorporating the local terrain and materials to provide inspiring views and foster indoor/outdoor living. Award-winning Plan Architects have created three elegantly contemporary designs for this most sought-after address. Horizon Residences, located near the North Course and offering spectacular views, are spacious four-, five-, and six-bedroom villas that include a home office, wine cellar, Italian-designed chef’s kitchen, gym and spa area, a heated pool, and smart technology throughout. The upper-level Panorama Residences and the Garden Residences, which are convenient to the clubhouse, include luxe three- or four-bedroom apartments, with private terraces or courtyards, solar panels and smart technology. All homes feature the finest finishes and innovative appointments, with stunningly liveable interiors designed by Vilaça Interiores. Prices for the homes range from around £3.45 million to around £8.2 million.
One Green Way’s location within Quinta do Lago means that residents are not only within walking distance of the two-mile-long beach and close to Ria Formosa Natural Park, but they also have access to the resort’s dozen restaurants and dining venues, and its campus of elite sports and wellness facilities. Golfers will enjoy three challenging courses: the par-72 Laranjal Course, the upgraded 18-hole South Course, and the North Course, which was redesigned in 2014 by Beau Welling with Ryder Cup captain Paul McGinley.
Notes João Fonseca, CEO of Green Jacket Partners, “We are providing the ultimate opportunity to join Europe’s most exclusive community. Buyers are not only attracted to the extensive range of in-house and on-site amenities but also to the returns and tax benefits of investing in the Portuguese market. One Green Way is the ideal location for a second home, permanent relocation or as an investment property.”
