SPACIOUS WELL BUILT DETACHED HOME - A SHORT WALK FROM TOWN
This fantastic home has been recently upgraded and is ready to move straight into – there is nothing to do but enjoy life! The property is approached through Electrically controlled Double Gates – up the driveway to a parking area and beyond is a properly constructed Double Carport and a Garage with workshop. On entering the house there are stairs up to a landing with coat hanging area, guest cloakroom, double doors into the lounge area with feature wood burning stove and then onto the dining room with Aircon and beyond that to the kitchen with all mod cons. Running across the whole of the back of the house is a Sun Room, which could be opened up to the terrace if desired, this room leads into the Man Cave Kitchen with space for a huge gas BBQ and extractor hood above! Continuing with the main house there are Two Double Bedrooms and a huge Shower Room. From the Entrance Hall there are stairs to the lower floor where there is a Studio Apartment with fitted Kitchen, large Shower Room and a further Bedroom currently being used as a Gymnasium. Outside there is an illuminated Swimming Pool with special Multi Opening Cover, private Sun Bathing Terrace, and well stocked automatically irrigated gardens to both front and rear. There is a Vegetable Garden, a variety of Fruit Trees and the remaining land has a mixture of Cork and Holme Oaks, Pine and Olive Trees and an amazing Cacti plantation bearing a good crop of Prickly Pear fruit and is happy as a back drop to the wonderful views, or a blank canvas for a wonderful sloping garden. The entire property is fenced and the views across the Alentejo countryside are really fabulous.

GARDENS and GROUNDS
The gardens are well stocked with plants and shrubs to give colour throughout the year, most planted areas have automatic irrigation, to save water the owners are currently not watering the lawned area around the pool. To one side of the monte is a fenced fruit garden with Orange, Lemon, Peach, Apricot, Quince, Nespara, Almond and Olive Trees, there is a fenced vegetable plot with shaded growing tunnel. Steps lead up from the side of the carport to the top garden and swimming pool. To the rear, the land slopes quite steeply down, with a wide track flanked by Prickly Pear Cacti leading from the side garden round to the bottom of the land. This whole area is dotted with trees and would lend itself to a whole host of garden and terrace ideas, but is equally perfect as a backdrop to the stunning views.
All machinery equipment throughout the property, including the Aircon, aluminium windows and doors with insect screens, have been replaced within the past 18 months and are mostly under warranty and there is a special new ‘one piece’ aluminium guttering.
