This spacious property has an existing Licence for Warehouse use in conjunction with an Agricultural activity, but was converted to a residence over 14 years ago. A change of planning/Licence was then sought, but was subsequently turned down. However, the local politics have now changed, a different political party is now in charge and it is believed that with a good architect and possibly a good lawyer that between them they would be able to have a new Habitation Licence application looked upon more favourably. The property still requires further alterations to complete the conversion to a comfortable three bedroom, two bathroom farmhouse for the enjoyment of full time living.  The property currently has a fitted kitchen with living area, one double bedroom, two ensuites, a very large room to convert to make a second double bedroom and separate living room, further store room and integral wood store that combined could make a single bedroom. Outside, to the front of the house is a covered porch, to the rear is a large tiled terrace with 6m x 3m swimming pool, partially covered open fronted terrace ideal for sun bathing or dining outside no matter the weather.  The property also has a large Barn building of 120m2 with an insulated profile steel roof (industrial roof) that could be converted to stables or kennels if required.   The land has been planted with ‘hundreds’ of umbrella pines (there is irrigation to the land), which may start producing a good income from the pine kernels (known as Portuguese white gold), but if the land is required for other purposes then the trees can be removed easily to create large open areas.  The property benefits from a borehole and a Barragem of 0.13 Hectare (1/3rd Acre).  The entire property is stock fenced. Alcoutim is just eight minutes drive away.

BARRAGEM 0.13 Hectare (1/3rd Acre)



Slopes gently down to the Barn and again gently on down to the Barragem, the land then rises gently to the back fence giving lovely views over the surrounding countryside, onwards to the mountains and back to the house. To the Eastern side between the house and the barn, the land falls away quite steeply. It has all been extensively planted with Umbrella Pines, the tree grown for its edible kernels and could be maintained for its crop. However, many of the tree’s are reasonably immature and therefore would be fairly easy to remove should one require more open land for paddocks or other pursuits. The entire property is stock fenced and dog proof.


The property is accessed through a pair of strong wrought iron gates.


Features to note:

Windows and doors have steel security shuttering. All windows are in white aluminium frames with insect netting. High ceilings throughout.
