This wonderful farmhouse oozing the character of a wealthy farming family and now requiring a little updating is so well situated being located between the sought after towns of Vilamoura and Almancil in The Golden Triangle.  Both of these towns together with the beaches, famous Golf courses and marine activities are all just a short drive away. The Farmhouse itself has traditional thick walls and high reed lined ceilings which are in good order throughout. This farm is ideal for equestrians, as the land is mainly level with very little stone and to add interest, slopes gently away down to the stream, which forms a part of the boundary and only flows in the wetter months.  The old farmhouse has at least SIX Bedrooms arranged in a Three Bedroom House, adjoining Two Bedroom House, in addition there is a One Bedroom Apartment and finally a Bedsitter with almost adjoining under cover Shower room.   Attached to the main house is a spacious Double Garage, large covered Verandah, feature covered outdoor Kitchen with large BBQ and bread oven. An adjacent fitted Laundry Room, Chicken Coop and large Cisterna. There is ample space for a swimming pool (stpp) in front of the house, which is set back from the road behind fencing and a large Fruit Orchard.  The house is accessed via an automatic entry gate with video security leading on down a long drive culminating in a large parking area below Ancient Cork Oak trees. There are attractive auto-irrigated gardens with smooth lawns, interesting and colourful borders, fruit trees and wonderful areas to sit and relax.  The land has a large Tractor/Hay Barn ideal for converting to stables, further space for parking several vehicles off the driveway, plenty of space for a Sand Arena and there is a very useful second access way ideal for Horse Lorry access. This property is in an area with other high end value properties.
