A charming recently built Monte in the traditional Lower Alentejo style, set in the beautiful gently rolling hills that are typical of this outstandingly attractive region.   This lovely property is ideal for those who have dogs or horses with super walks along miles of unpaved roads through pretty fields and past lakes reflecting the blue sky. It is only about 1km from the village with its small local bar/cafeteria and the much larger town of Ourique offers all the facilities of a rural Market Town and is just an 8 minute drive away. Entrance is through metal double gates, which have been prepared for converting to remote control access if required. From the gateway, the driveway sweeps round to the parking area and the front of the Monte providing parking and turning for several vehicles.  The Accommodation is ready for buyers to move into immediately and briefly comprises Large Kitchen Diner with archway through to Living Room. Master Bedroom, Double Second Bedroom, central five piece Luxury Bathroom, Coved Ceilings and Wood Burning Stove in the Living Room capable of heating the entire House, all windows and doors are Georgian style double glazed with external Aluminium Shutters and tiled flooring throughout.

There are planted borders that have gravel covered weed suppressant, an old stone Bread Oven, Borehole, Fossa and further there is a Fruit Orchard with its own large stone Well with mesh cover and a small seasonal Stream.  This area could be made into a very pretty feature in time.  The Land is reasonably flat and relatively stone free and there is an area to the front of the Monte that would be ideal to turn into a Dressage Sand School/Arena.  The entire property is fenced.
