2 + 1
This property represents a great opportunity for those wishing to have a home and income. It currently holds the initial Camara Approval for a Paintball Camp with associated adventure area and also further approval to re-site and re-build the ruin up to 300m2. The property benefits from two attractive lakes both with good fishing. It may be possible to site up to 10 Floating Safari or Glamping tents….probably a first for Portugal. This innovative scheme for Glamping and associated amenities will require planning approval, but could be well patronised by race goers wishing for a less expensive alternative to the race track hotel…and more fun. Also it would be possible to buy the next door property to make a B&B project subject to any planning/licences required and use the two lakes for fishing holidays attached to the B&B business. In addition there is still the existing ruin to take financial advantage of. This property is just a very short drive away from the Autódromo, but fortunately does not seem to suffer with the race track noise. The natural acoustics of the surrounding hills here deflects any noise over the property. The quinta currently is arranged with a very large and wonderful covered patio terrace that can easily seat 20 persons for dinner, spacious living room with wood burner, nicely arranged Country Cottage Style Kitchen/Diner in antique pine, 2 double bedrooms and lovely bathroom. There is a set of double wrought iron gates leading onto a parking space for two cars, a second pretty covered patio terrace, large workroom and a workshop. Additionally is an annexe that briefly comprises a bedsitting room, wash area, shower, and also a potential kitchenette. The existing Quinta and the ruin have two separate urban numbers.
