BEAUTIFUL ESTATE WITH SPECTACULAR MOUNTAIN AND SEA VIEWS
3 + 3
This must be the very home for the Greek god Zeus being on ‘top of the World’ where the air is clean and unpolluted offering enough space here for his wives too! Here are Two Fabulous Homes, currently arranged as the Owners fully renovated and modernised Old Farmhouse (completed in 2019) arranged to take full advantage of the awesome views and having a huge attached Annexe with large Double Bedroom, equally large Living Area, then 2nd very spacious Three Double Bedroom Detached House (built in 2010) with Three Ensuites, and a fun fully equipped Glamping Unit for younger guests. There are Two Swimming Pool Tanks – it is believed that a Swimming Pool licence could be obtained easily if it is located above the property so could double as fire safety. After the fires of 2018, a sprinkler system has been added to the roofs and house surrounds fed from a new 65,000 litre dedicated tank. The Owner’s house has the ‘Wow Factor’ views, whist the 2nd House oozes space, character and fab design, each area is completely private as is the entire estate. No overlooking neighbours, bar the Eagles flying overhead, just total peace and relaxation. The Land was made into very strong wide terraces probably several hundred years ago and in the last century was used as a potato farm, as the soil is of excellent quality with abundant water. There are loads of specimen Trees, Shrubs and many different Fruit Trees, plenty of space for a Kitchen Garden and Herbs if required. The property is blessed with its own Monchique Spring water supply, which is greatly desired for its purity, here it runs all year round, even filling a beautiful large Koi pond covered in Water Lilies. There is an AL Tourism Licence on the 2nd House and Tourism Licence for the entire property has been applied for. A TRULY SPECTACULAR PROPERTY – DON’T MISS OUT!

GROUNDS AND LAND
The property is approached over tarmac roads leading to a final short dirt track. A concrete drive just before the gates leads up to the second house, while through the gates an expansive granite block driveway sweeps up to the owners house with parking for numerous vehicles.
Each house has its own areas of garden that are private in their immediate vicinity, dotted around the grounds are trickling courses of water from the Spring being diverted to pools, swimming tanks, a pretty well and the koi pond. The land around the houses is formed from a number of very large flat terraces. Further up to the top of the mountain and the land down the other side, is given over to nature with trees and huge smooth rocks, perfect for fabulous walks with stunning views across a large section of the West Coast, an equally large section of the South Coast and even the Odelouca Barragem below. An unbelievably spectacular view!!
