Property description

2 Bed Quinta with stables for renovation & modernising.

Sitting in 6.5ha (16 acres) of terraced land with STUNNING hill views.

Location: Freestanding Quinta with fabulous country & mountain views. Access off a tarmac road. Quiet and peaceful country location with the occasional car driving past. Estoi with restaurants, cafe´s and a lovely restored palace turned Pousada at 10 min drive.

Property description: Quinta with 2 bedrooms on a split level, registered covered area 111m² which includes 45m² of stables and outhouses sitting in a huge plot of terraced land of 65.000m² (16 acres). The land is divided by the road, with an olive grove going up the hill on one side and terraced fertile land with some large trees going down on the other side where the quinta sits. Quinta built somewhere early 1900 with 50cm thick natural stone walls, it has both 'pole & cane' ceilings with Roman roof tiles on top and a concrete, flat roof with indoor stairs to the roof terrace with superb views, of even the sea! Part of the stable roofs are fallen down, but could possibly be restored. This would be perfect renovation project for those who want to Do-It-Yourself. You could live there whilst renovating the property.

There is an iron door going into a kitchen area 14m² with a wooden loft and steps going up to the roof terrace. Lounge 10m² with an iron door going back to the courtyard.

Features: 220V Electricity, cistern of 3m³, public well nearby, mains water has been applied for by the neighbourhood but could take a while to get there. Driveway to an enclosed carport and the part fallen down stables with more storage rooms. Lovely terraced plot of land with natural stone retaining walls North of the Quinta with a variety of dry fruit trees like almonds, olives, carobs, figs and some large vines.
