Property Description

Stunnily beautiful 10ha smallholding in idyllic location, with gorgeous granite stone house, barn, meadows, lots of spring water and great views!

The Quinta da Barreta is set in a beautiful private location with fabulous views across the rolling countryside and to the pretty and historic village of Aldeia de João Pires. The access to the quinta is a 1.9km decent dirt track from the village. In the village is a bar/cafe/restaurant and a little shop. The larger village of Aldeia do Bispo is 4.3km and the town of Penamacor is only 8km.

10ha (24.7 acres) of fenced, rolling meadows. Ideal for horses, etc. There are a few fruit trees, oaks and cork oak trees. There is lots of water on this property. There are 3 excellent water wells, two of which are capped with a hatch left for access. One of these wells provides fresh spring water to the house. There are 3 big water pools, one at the top of the land, one in the middle and one at the bottom. Two tend to dry up mid summer if there is little rain over winter but the middle one always has lots of water. For 8 to 9 months of the year the land is lush and green and there is a little stream running through the property.

Recently renovated, this is a real gem of a house. The ground floor has an area of 82m2 and the first floor 73m2 plus another 34m2 of balconies. The walls are thick, pointed granite stone, and all windows and doors are made of chestnut wood and double glazed. The roof and balcony timbers are made of Nordic pine. The house is connected to mains electricity, it’s own spring water, and has a two chamber soak away septic tank. To put your own stamp on the house, the buyer can choose the kitchen floor tiles and units, the ground floor floor tiles, and one bathroom suite. We will supply and fit for the price of 12,000€ plus VAT.
