An excellent opportunity to purchase a very large old Farmhouse situated just a short walk from a lovely traditional Village with its thriving predominantly farming community complete with pretty Church, mini Supermarket, Cafes/Bars, Restaurant and Multi-Bank.  The Farm is located off the quiet country road that leads to the stunning Barragem de Monte da Rocha. At one time this property had been used to grow grapes to produce wine, the vines are now long gone, however there is still a wide variety of Fruit Trees including Apricots and the entire area of superb Farming Land is all enclosed behind sturdy walling.  Entrance to the Farm is through steel Double Gates, then along the Driveway leading to the House and onwards to the Garage/Store, Annexe and the Farm Buildings. The Accommodation briefly comprises Entrance Hall, Kitchen/Living Room, Four Bedrooms, 5 piece Bathroom, External Stairs to Attic Floor ready to be exploited to more accommodation if required and an Attached Adega (Winery) that could be turned into a fantastic dual aspect Living Room (subject to planning). There are well stocked Gardens with Mature Palms and a lovely Vine covered Al Fresco Eating Area with stone table and matching stools. There is a Detached Garage/Farm Implement Store of 60m², a Detached Annexe 53m², Pigsties of 60m² and there are other smaller farm buildings in a dilapidated state.  The property has its own Borehole and there is plenty of space for a swimming pool subject to approval.  Currently a selection of happy Livestock graze the Land.

THE LAND

LAND

The soil is rich and has been naturally fertilised and could be ploughed replanted with vines for either continuing the tradition of making table wines or growing grapes for the table. Alternatively, the land could be used for market gardening or for keeping and training horses, as it is quite flat. There is the space available for a large in ground Swimming Pool, Sand Arena or other activities subject to any necessary approvals. There is a structure for keeping and raising Domestic Pigeons and the entire estate is retained within sturdy walling.
