A wonderful opportunity to own a One Bedroom home together with a separate Studio Apartment either for relatives or paying guests.  In order to create this home and business, there will be a certain amount of building/alteration work to be carried out.   Both units have shower rooms installed, both have fully tiled flooring with modern tiling, there are superb views over the peaceful hillsides that are mainly planted with orange trees and there is a semi basement garden storage room with a washbasin.   The accommodation is arranged with an open, gated and partly covered walkway with entrance door to the ground floor Studio Apartment, which has on entry a kitchen diner, living room, bedroom and shower room.  External stairs lead to the first floor Apartment, which has an entrance door, kitchen with pantry, door to inner hallway, shower room, bedroom and living room with Juliet balcony.  All facilities of water, electric and drainage are in situ and only require reconnection.  Opposite the property is a parking area that could be extended and the land stretches all the way to another tarmac road from which the owners obtained the approval to install another entrance with gateway off. Within the land there is a selection of fruit trees including Almonds, Oranges and Figs.  The lay out of the land would make it suitable to keep one horse or indeed for someone wishing to be more self-sufficient and grow their own vegetables. The soil is very rich in this area and this property benefits from having a borehole.  The owners next door have made other arrangements, which a new owner here might wish to copy.  This is a lovely quiet location with quiet neighbours and is only a couple of minutes drive to the beautiful and vibrant old City of Silves with its wonderful Castle, River Arade, daily Market and superb Beaches at under 15 minutes drive.

All the land is to the front of the property crossing the little track road outside the house and gently sweeping on down to another minor road, which has an access gateway. Once fenced then this area would be ideal for keeping a horse, as it is shaded enough for a horse to be able to graze here and probably re-shape the trees too. There are other possibilities with the land for growing or gardening in terraces, such as appear to have been taken up by the neighbours of this small hamlet. It might prove a more convenient way to access the property using the minor road at the bottom of the land and complete the hardstanding for Parking up near the house. The current parking spaces need a little maintenance and extension, but when completed, could provide space for two cars. Currently the land has a number of Fig, Orange and Almond trees.


We are obtaining an estimate for completing all these works to a good standard including the repair and repainting of the outside of the property from a local builder which will also include the completion of the hard standing for one car. - Actual fittings such as showers, toilets basins and kitchen furniture etc. will not be included in the quoted price, this is just to give buyers a rough budget idea.

The property is freehold with mains electric, drainage and own borehole. The City of Silves is about a 2 minute drive, beaches around 15 minutes and to Faro Airport around 50 minutes. Silves itself offers History, and all modern conveniences including Supermarkets, Markets, Health Centres, Restaurants and Bars. Portimao city is just under 15 minutes drive offering more shopping centres and higher education including University.

All measurements or distances are approximate. The text, photographs and plans are for guidance only. It should not be assumed that the property meets all the appropriate legal requirements.
