Property Description

Smallholding with development potential – habitable house, barns and 2 ruins to re-build with an acre of flat land plus fantastic natural water supply. Private road set in a small hamlet. Ideal for self-sufficiency.

The house, built before 1951 measures about 108m2 set out over 2 floors. This has a habitation licence. All the paperwork to all 5 articles is in order.

The top floor is accessed through a double glazed door sheltered by a veranda roof, straight into the living room. Off the living room are 2 small bedrooms both with double glazed windows and a bathroom. The old fashioned style kitchen is double aspect and has double glazed windows and a metal and single glazed door which leads to a balcony through a wooden constructed porch. The bottom floor has 3 rooms currently used as a utility room, wine making area and food storage.

There is also a metal roofed workshop to the front of the house, all connected to mains electricity. The property’s water comes from a spring.

The property consists of 5 articles which are being sold together. Access is by means of a gravelled road.

The first article is to the right of the road, it has a ruined farm worker’s house of approximately 60sqm and agricultural land of about 280m2. There are mature cherry, sweet chestnut and mimosa trees together with vines surrounding the land. Opposite the farm worker’s house is a further ruin of roughly 80m2.

At the end of the gravelled road is a barn measuring around 75m2 used for storage. There is also cultivated land of approximately 280m2, which around half has been made into a car parking area. The boundary of the land is a small stream and vines. The land has walnut, apple and olive trees. Attached to the barn is a further area of covered storage. This is used for a wood store and pig pen.

The land surrounding the house is set over 3 levels. The higher level consists of a large water cistern fed by the spring, patio area and sizable garden. It has a grassed track to the side (separated from the land by various fruit trees) for tractor access to the lower fields. This land is bordered by a small stream coming from the spring and a wall. The second level is the smallest and is used as a chicken run. It is bordered by the stream as it runs downhill. The third area has another large water cistern and is used for cultivation. There is a granite bridge over a second larger stream providing access to a cultivated flat field measuring over 1000m2. The stream is used to irrigate the land in the summer. Walking upstream leads to another bridge, over which there is another flat field of about 220m2. This land is bordered by a wall and the stream. The grass track from this field leads back up to the house and garden passing a 10m sweet chestnut tree.

The garden has a variety of fruit trees; including olive, pear, loquat, plum, peach, apricot, lime, lemon, tangerine, and orange.

The village of Sinde is a 5 minute walk away and has two bars and a mini-market. This is a perfect, ready to go place for self-sufficiency. And all the other buildings, if you want to develop holiday homes.
