Property Description

<b>(UPDATE: The land burnt in the recent fires, though all oaks and most of the pines are alive. The price is now negociable).<b>

Large property with a beautiful forest, very private and with huge potential for different purposes.

There is an old agricultural building in ruins built with large granite stones. It has +/- 20m2 area. It could be renovated and extended to convert into a nice family cottage.

The property is composed of two adjoining plots with a total of 31,680m2 land. Part forest and part agricultural. Part is hillside and part is flat, but here are potential to create some nice terraces.

The owner lives abroad since many years, but every year he spends a few months in the nearest village and his care and love for the land is visible. He have always been concerned about not letting grow brambles, mimosas or eucaliptos on the land, so the major part of the forest is still autoctone. But there is a pinewood forest as well, good to have your own firewood, wood for construction, etc…

There are also some fruit trees (cherry, walnut, elderberries) and space to plant more fruit trees, berries… great places for a food forest! This property would be ideal to develop a permaculture project or even a Campsite / Retreat  / Tourism business…

The granite building sits at the top of a granite formation with several cedars planted around.

At the bottom part of the property there is a large flat field and some terraces for cultivation and/ or pastures.

On different points of the land there are 5 wells with water. Some needs cleanence.

From one of the wells – the one that is closer to the house – the water can be pumped for the house use. Or, a bore-hole can be made above the area where the house is located has there is a good subterranium water line.

There are beautiful granite boulders and nice spots for yurts and lots of wild nature and wild life around.

From the paved road there are two private accesses by dirt track.

Electricity is on the paved road.

It is located about 1km from the village where there are cafes, grocery shop, ATM machine, nursery, pre-school and elementary school. A school bus takes the older kids to school in Ervedal da Beira and Oliveira do Hospital.
