WONDERFUL LARGE QUINTA IN BEAUTIFUL COUNTRYSIDE
Near Almodôvar, Alentejo
5 + 1
This is a very rare property that can either be a large country house for a family or a home with the possibilities of a B&B. We are often asked for this type of property and rarely do we ever get one that has been stylishly modernised and offers great space and layout for such a project. This spacious farmhouse is very PRIVATE and has pleasing elevations and rooflines that make the property so attractive. The owners in very recent years have installed Oil fired central heating, coved ceilings, double glazed windows set into aluminium frames with matching aluminium shutters, insect netting at all windows and doors. The property is blessed with a variety of water supplies including borehole, well and town water. The accommodation briefly comprises Study Hall, Guest Bathroom, Snug, superb Lounge, huge Farmhouse Kitchen Diner, Five Bedrooms, Three Bathrooms, huge First Floor Space currently arranged as Two further Bedrooms but would ideally convert to form Four x Double Bedroom Suites for a B&B. Attached to the Main House is a One Bedroom Annexe with Bathroom licenced by the Tourist Board for renting out. Outside is a walled rear Garden, irrigated Fruit Orchard, Sun Terrace, Swimming Pool, Carport for Three Cars, Large Garage/Workshop and well-tended Orchards made into beautiful pastoral Meadows ideal for grazing Horses or general Livestock. The land is a beautiful frame to the property having gently rolling Fields with lots of mature Olive trees, which not only supply cooking or table oil, but also shade and shelter for the Livestock. All the land is Fenced and there are Auto Water Drinkers in the Paddocks.

WALLED GARDEN AREA
with some mature trees for shade and a blank canvas for a keen gardener, there is even a storks nest on a pole just beyond the wall in the paddock!
The land here is a wonderful feature with well-maintained pastures containing trees for shade for any livestock, all pastures are supplied with water troughs with automatic fillers and we are told that there is enough grazing to probably feed 10 horses for the entire year – although with the Summer heat, feeding hay in the shade may be better. The land is currently divided with post and tape into 11 different paddock areas. There is also a small lake, a HAYBARN to the South of the house and on the far Eastern boundary is a stream which flows through in the wetter season.
The property is well served for water having Borehole water, Town water and Well water. From the borehole, water for drinking passes through a Reverse Osmosis system.
We believe that a licence for a B&B will be granted under the Rural Tourism scheme.
All windows and doors have Aluminium shutters, all external doors are of stable gate style and all the ground floor is finished in stone effect travertine tiles.
The property is freehold with mains electric, own borehole, town water and Well, drainage is private. The town of Almodôvar is just a 10 minute drive, with restaurants, cafes, shops, banks and fresh food markets. The A2 is just 5 minutes away and gets you to beautiful Algarve beaches in just 45 minutes and Faro Airport is under an hour.
