Property Description

Quinta with granite stone house and beautiful large outbuilding. Completely private in 7.5ha of land (18.5 acres) at 5 minutes drive from Alcains.

House
The house is a beauty and has a footprint of 107m2 with 2 floors. The walls are made of thick pointed granite stone. All windows and doors are double glazed and made of chestnut wood. The roof and balcony timbers are Nordic pine and the lounge floor is made of thick original flagstone. Without the use of any kind of machinery, all the stone pillars carrying the balconies have been hand chiselled from the granite rock on the property. The house is completely electrically wired (light switches and sockets are being fitted at the time of writing) but there is no mains electricity. Mains electricity for this property would cost more than a good solar powered system. There is borehole spring water connected and a dual chamber soak away septic tank.

The property has recently been completely renovated/rebuilt with the last finishing touches being left to the buyer’s taste/choice. The bathroom needs kitting out and tiling and the kitchen needs to be fitted and tiled. To put your own stamp on the house all these materials can be chosen by the buyer and we will supply and fit for the price of 10,000€ plus VAT. We’ve made a very big stone walled courtyard around the house which would make a great area for a swimming pool.

Ground floor
Bathroom, lounge with steps into kitchen.

First floor
One huge bedroom but can very easily be divided into two, each with balcony with nice views overlooking the land.

Outbuilding
The outbuilding behind the house is a fantastic open space with a 200m2 footprint. The walls are pointed granite stone. The roof is made with exposed chestnut wood beams with white plasterboard behind. There are 8 roof windows, insulation, breathable roofing felt and clay tiles. The possibilities for the outbuilding are endless. It would make a great yoga room, community space, work shop, a very posh barn, garage, or even extra accommodation, etc etc.

Land
7.5ha (18.5 acres) of fenced land, ideal for keeping horses or other animals, growing food and planting fruit trees. There are roughly 30 olive trees and quite a few cork oak trees. There is one small well and a borehole providing lots of spring water.

Location
At the end of a slightly bumpy 1.5km dirt track (soon to be levelled by the council), set alone in a beautiful and completely private location. There are no other houses or buildings around. For all shopping needs it’s a mere 5 minute drive into the small town of Alcains. From Alcains to Castelo Branco is 16kms.
