5 BEDROOMS | TRANCOSO, SOUTHERN BAHIA | R$4,725,000
Casa Branca is an incredible house situated on the Terravista Estate in Trancoso. The Estate is an exclusive condominium located 15 minutes north of the Quadrado in the center of town, with 24-hour security, tennis courts and a renowned 18-hole golf course.
Sitting on a grand lakefront property that spills onto the golf course, the two-story house boasts a private swimming pool and a beautiful garden. There are five comfortable ensuite bedrooms, a home cinema room, and an enormous living room taking up the entire first floor and opening onto a covered terrace. At ground floor level, there is a grand kitchen and dining area with large French doors opening onto a poolside deck.
The property is made of framed construction, with missionary elevations under a pitched tiled roof, and a combination of timber windows and French doors have been used to maximize the natural light. Externally, there is decking around a large pool, which leads to a landscaped garden with the golf course just beyond the lawn.
The property was bought and recently refurbished to a very high standard by one of Brazil’s most prominent interior designers. This is evident not only in the furnishings of the house, but also in the attractive and tasteful fixtures and fittings. The stylish house was featured on the cover of Casa Vogue Brazil.
The beach is about a 10-minute walk from the house via a private path, and tennis courts and the excellent 18-hole golf course are right around the corner.

TRANCOSO, SOUTHERN BAHIA
As well as offering some of the best beaches in the Northeastern Brazil, the village of Trancoso has a very pretty colonial heart, set on a bluff overlooking the ocean. The large, grassy main square known as the Quadrado is surrounded by colorful native houses presided over by a small church, and has dazzling views of the beaches and ocean.
In terms of buying property, Trancoso represents some of the more prime beach property in the country, with beachfront plots achieving extraordinary rates per square meter. This is in large part due to the popularity during peak seasons. Trancoso is a very popular destination over the Brazilian summer, especially during New Year’s Eve when rents spike.
The most popular rental destinations combine stunning beaches or natural beauty with access to refined dining – restaurants offering quality wines and cocktails together with great local cuisine. Access to infrastructure and an airport is also important. Trancoso combines these elements effortlessly.
In the evening everyone heads to the Quadrado to sip caipirinhas and browse the shops and boutiques (including nearly all of the chicest Brazilian designers). The atmosphere is incredibly relaxed - flip-flops, open shirts and kaftans are the order of the day. It has begun to attract a sophisticated and international clientele, who come to experience the authentic flavor of Brazil, enhanced by unpretentious restaurants, quaint hotels and stunning private houses.
