Painter José Malhoa ordered the construction of this building in 1895. It was his house after settling in Figueiró dos Vinhos. The author of the project was a great friend of this artist; architect Ernesto Reynaud, who was in the town by that time reconstructing the main church. In spite of some transformations, this 2-storey house has preserved many of its original features, for example in the bedroom, the staircase, the living room, the door, the tiles and garden’s grass-covered pavilion. Grouted walls resemble ornamented bricks and their colour, whereas window corners and frames are cut in blocks of grained stone. The transom and the cornices stand out for the tile friezes of Rafael Bordalo Pinheiro. Inside you should draw your attention to the leather-covered living room, leading to the porch, the fireplace and the wooden ceiling. Building with Cultural Value and Council Interest
