Property Description

Quinta set in it’s own secluded valley 20 mins walk outside the popular village of Aldeia de Joao Pires, 10 mins drive south of Penamacor. It has stunning views towards the village on the hill Monsanto, which is stunning when lit up at night. There is 8,000m2 of land (just under 1ha) with the opportunity to buy more for very cheap to make it up to over 1ha.

The house

The house is a 2 double bedroom well made house. The main living area is the old barn with granite walls and is open plan kitchen and sitting room with an open fire. The kitchen is all loose cupboards and a round table with chairs as well as a sofa and we can leave them all if people would like them. This then leads on to the newer extension where there is a shower room and two double bedrooms.

Bedroom one can be double or twin. Bedroom two is very large and could be split into two or could have a mezzanine added to make more space. Most furniture will be left however this needs to be discussed.

The shower room the toilet is flushable currently to a pit but for less than €500 a vermicomposting toilet could be fitted. There is also a compost toilet and shower built outside which was meant to be for workaways but the current tenants use it.

The water is gravity fed from a tank on rocks at the back of the house, which is connected to the well. Water in the house is heated by a gas boiler and is linked to the shower room and an outside sink but not yet to the kitchen.

The property is ready to move into as an off grid home that is already set up!

The whole house is in good condition with tiled floors throughout and the extension walls all plastered and painted.

Out the front there is a sink with running water on a small patio. We had plans to make a larger veranda out the front with outdoor kitchen and the quote was for around 1000 euros

Apart from gas and firewood there are no running costs to the property. The house is totally exempt from habitation laws – we confirmed this with our lawyer when buying, so it is a completely legal habitation.

At the back of the house the solar system is stored (as you can see in photos) – this was newly bought and fitted in 2017 and is 6000 euro system that can run fridge/ freezer and washing machine.

Water is from a covered well which is beautiful drinking water.

The land is one large field, with an olive grove, which faces towards Monsanto village and is nestled by hills behind. There are some beautiful rock formations on the land and around. There is then also a small field with young olive grove as part of the property too. Lots of olive trees and fruit trees including figs, apples, pear, plum, pomegranate, persimmon, almond and more.

Great land for growing vegetables.

Space to put a couple of yurts or bell tents for renting out and possibly a small dipping pool.

There is also scope to buy some other bits of land around the quinta from Portuguese neighbours for very cheap to extend the property and this included a small rocky granite mountain with amazing views over to Monsanto, would be lovely to have a hut at the top of it!

Lovely neighbours within walking distance around the house and local and expat community in the local area.

The quinta is 10-15 mins drive to Penamacor, 15 mins drive to Monsanto (most Portuguese village), 3 mins drive to the village of Aldeia de joao pires, 50 mins to Castelo branco and 40 mins to Fundao. A few lakes and river beaches around for swimming on hot days and many of the villages and towns have festas on all year round. There is a growing expat community around the area who are very supportive and there are lots of new opportunities arising. The local Portuguese are very friendly and welcoming too.
