SPACIOUS 3 BEDROOM QUINTA - JUST NORTH OF THE ALGARVE
Near Gomes Aires
This is a fantastic opportunity for a buyer in a ready position to buy this wonderful property within the Lower Alentejo just North of the border with the Algarve. The property lies hidden in this small Valley surrounded by Hills, yet is just a 7 kms drive to the IC1 or a quick access to the motorway and the Market Town of Almodôvar. The Quinta has been modernised and now briefly comprises of an Open Plan Reception Hall with Wood Burner, Open Plan Living Room, Second Lounge Area with feature Open Fire, large Kitchen Diner, Pantry/Utility Room, Inner Hallway and Three Double Bedrooms all with Shower Rooms. Outside, there is a wide Patio Terrace, large Roof Terrace, covered Dining Terrace, Parking Area and close to the House are extensive former Animal Shelters that are now in Ruins, but could be reinstated if required. The property has Borehole Water, Two Wells and there are two Access Ways to the Property. The shorter Access Way needs clearing of taller brush/weeds to bring it back into use. There are former fenced Paddocks that wouldn’t take much to reinstate them into a good condition for two horses, also a Concrete Pad in one of the Paddocks where Stables had previously been situated. The rest of the land continues up and over a quite steep hill with fabulous views over the countryside in all directions and has many Cork Oaks and other Trees, this entire area could really be beautiful with a little attention.
