NEW LISTING

Lovely old partly modernised Alentejo farmhouse on the border of the Algarve and the Lower Alentejo in a hamlet called California, within the Parish of Santa Cruz – one could almost expect Clint Eastwood to ride on by!!

This large area of land, which is reasonably level, is in a 2km long finger shape with one end bordering the River and the other gently climbing up towards the top boundary.

The vendor has spoken with his local Camara (Council) who have indicated that projects based on the following will be considered. He says that the house could be extended up to 250m², which will make this property into a very spacious home situated about 8 kms from the quaint town of Ameixial, which offers a mini market and several cafes/snack bars, petrol station etc.  A modernisation and improvement program has already been started on this property, which still retains its character.  The property is liveable in now while the remainder of the domestic project is completed.

The accommodation is arranged briefly as follows: Entrance Hall, Sitting Room, Kitchen Diner, Two Double Bedrooms and Bathroom. There are three large areas left for remodelling and are intended to be made into a very spacious Living Room and a new Kitchen/Diner allowing the existing Kitchen/Diner to be turned into another Bedroom with its own Ensuite.

Outside the front of the farmhouse is a small vineyard, a good selection of fruit trees including Fig, Oranges, Lemons and Olives.  Access to the property is via attractive wrought iron double gates onto the drive that leads directly to the house.

Close by are a collection of old brick built animal pens/shelters which the Camara have indicated can be rebuilt up to 1,000m² and there is still the possibility of a Rural Tourism Project of up to 2,000m².
