TRADITIONAL FARMHOUSE WITH LICENSED ANNEXE AND LAND IDEAL FOR TOURISM
Nave Redonda, Algarve/Alentejo Border
2 + 1
This wonderful property has the feel of being very close to nature, but is not isolated as it has neighbours nearby, but at arms-length. The IC1 is just a short drive and the famous Guia Shopping is under 40 minutes away. This lovely property has been very well maintained and is offered in good decorative order throughout and most importantly, it has HABITATION LICENCES for Both Houses. We believe it might be possible to obtain a Tourist Licence and then be able to have Cabanas and/or Motorhomes with service points in some of the most fabulous settings. The Accommodation is briefly arranged with a truly superb Front Covered Porch leading into the Entrance Hall, open plan fully fitted Kitchen and Dining Room leading into a superb Living Room with vaulted ceiling. There are Two Double Bedrooms and a very large Family Bathroom. Additionally, the Annexe is a separate House, which has a Double Bedroom, open plan Living Room with Kitchenette and Dining Area, large luxury Shower Room, large Garage and separate Workshop with Washroom Facility. There are various Private Covered Seating Areas, an above ground 8m x 4m Swimming Pool and Pool Shower. The Gardens are a lovely feature, being superbly maintained and offer colour and interest with each Season. Beyond the Gardens, the land is a wonderful varied feature that offers huge interest – in one area the rainwater collects into a small pretty Lake which never runs dry and can be used for Swimming, Boating or Fishing, there is a very useful flat Grassland area, opposite the front of the house, ideal for Motorhomes or perfect for the Equestrian and the rest of the huge area, has Grassland, Hills, steep Tree covered Terrain and a rustling Eucalyptus Wood where the Bee-eaters nest in the Spring. From everywhere there are stunning views and perfect backdrops.

A perfect backdrop to the house from every window. The undulating land provides endless interest. To the rear of the property is the lake, a good stand of Eucalyptus trees and lovely hills and valleys. To the front of the property is an area of flat grassland approaching 1 Hectare that would prove ideal for Equestrian interests with a Well for water and trees for shade or maybe for Motorhome holidays and Glamping/Safari tents (subject to prior approval). Directly alongside this flat area, opposite the farmhouse the land rises steeply to a wonderful hillside covered in seemingly Evergreen trees that provide a habitat for many species of birds and mammals that help make this wonderful property what it is, a place to relax and enjoy the Flora and Fauna in the gorgeous sunshine.
Covers approximately 0.133 Hectares (0.33 Acres) and could be extended if required, it retains water throughout the year, allowing a lovely backdrop for humans and a life line to many forms of Wildlife.
Provides for all the water uses including drinking water.
POSSIBLE BUSINESS USES
As mentioned previously, this property can remain just the same as it is and be enjoyed as it is. However, we believe this property would prove ideal as a RURAL Camping Business being located just 500m from the tarmac road and also benefits from having nearly a hectare of very flat land adjacent to the unpaved road, which will enable having campervan stands with electric and water hook ups. Planning Approval from the Camara for such a venture will be required along with any appropriate Licences, but we believe that such a venture would be well received.
The property is freehold with mains electric, own borehole and drainage is private. The village of Nave Redonda is just a few moments drive, with restaurants and cafes. The property is centrally located between Sao Marcos de Serra and Monchique for all modern conveniences including Supermarkets, Markets, Health Centres, Restaurants, Bars and many other Leisure Facilities and the wonderful beaches of both the Algarve and the West Coast are both accessible in just 40 minutes. Energy Certificate Ratings: B* and C.
