Excellent and rare opportunity to buy a little cottage at a very fair price that is perfectly liveable in, but would lend itself to some improvements.  The vendors have recently agreed a land swap with the neighbour that now gives a boundary set back on the East and North sides by some 5 meters, which will allow for all sorts of improvements and even extensions subject to planning approval. The accommodation comprises large covered entrance porch, entrance hall, shower and utility room, kitchen diner, lounge and two small double bedrooms.  There is off road parking, nice views to the front overlooking a well maintained Orange Grove offering a lovely green rural  vista and hillside land that could be cultivated for a vegetable garden and/or for planting of fruit trees.  Silves offers all modern conveniences, a great selection of restaurants and bistro cafes, a Castle and the wonderful River Arade, it is only about 10 minutes drive to the sea and superb beaches such as Praia de Rocha and approximately 40 minutes drive to Faro Airport.  The registered Urban Area for this cottage is 165.50m².   Don’t miss this rare opportunity.

OUTSIDE

GARDENS

Immediately around the house there is new land to grow a variety of flowering shrubs and plants. To the front, there had been a little garden, which now needs revitalising, but offers great opportunities to create a cottage garden with the added superb feature of being set behind an attractive stone balustrade wall. To the rear of the house there would be space for an above ground pool.

LAND

To the side of the cottage is an area of land that rises quite steeply up the hillside, but would be good for growing fruit trees and vegetables.

PARKING

There is parking for two small cars outside the gates and for one small car on the drive.
