AMAZING PROPERTY WITH OUTSTANDING LAKE VIEWS FROM TWO HOUSES
5 + 8
This truly amazing Country Estate is situated overlooking the tranquil and beautiful waters of this wonderful Barragem tucked away 2kms along a good unpaved road, seemingly in total isolation yet under 12 minutes from the Historical City of Silves. The major City of Portimao with its shopping centres and beaches is under 30 minutes drive and Golf is close by too. The Estate comprises a very large single storey 4/5 Bedroom House of approx. 600m² including the magnificent wrap around covered Verandah that leads straight out to the lawns and has fabulous onward views over the Lake. There is a second fully detached two storey House that does not have the licences but offers either another 8 Double Bedrooms with two Lounges and two Kitchens or can be configured to make 2 x (4 Bedroom Apartments) each with own private access. The houses are situated far enough away from each other to give maximum Privacy, yet are within easy reach for close family. Adjacent to the two storey House is a very large raised tiled Sun Terrace below which is a very nice large Home Bar Area ideal for Parties/Fun Nights with guests. There is also a huge fully enclosed Agricultural Barn usable as a Tractor Store/Garage. There is ample Parking Space around the property and there are attractive well stocked Irrigated Gardens. In addition, there is an inviting larger than usual Swimming Pool 12m x 6m and a Floating Jetty for mooring boats, fishing from and swimming in the lake. The property benefits from an extensive frontage to the Lake, a large Well, Borehole and 17 Hectares of Land, some of which is flat ideal for keeping Horses or Livestock. There are irrigated Citrus Groves and there may be the possibility for a Rural Tourism Project on some of the land that is not already used for Agriculture.
IMPORTANT NOTE: THE SECOND HOUSE DOES NOT HOLD THE CORRECT PAPERWORK. IT MIGHT BE POSSIBLE TO OBTAIN A TOURISM LICENCE FOR THE ENTIRE PROPERTY, WHICH MAY SOLVE THE PROBLEM.
