Property Description

Farm consisting of an urban and rustic part. The main granite house is situated on the urban part. The house has legal habitation license and has a footprint of about 63m2. The lower level is split into two parts, at the moment these are used for storage of tools, and one of them holds a gas heated shower area. The top level consists of 3 good size bedrooms (each will take a double bed) and an open plan kitchen/living area. There is a lot of light coming through the windows, and from the dining table you look out over the green terraces and the ‘’Torre’’, the highest peak of the mountains. The house is heated by a wood burning oven, because the inner walls between kitchen / store room and living room have been taken out the oven warms up the entire house with ease, a tap provides the water directly from the mountains, the house is perfectly liveable, but also still needs some renovation.

Attached to the house is a garage, currently also used for storage. It is possible to apply for planning for extension of the house.

About 50 meters from the main house you will find a big stable complex. There is one big, two story high stable, ideal for horses or other bigger animals and two smaller stables, perfect for animals like goats, sheep, pigs etc. Above the two smaller stables are rooms that could easily be converted into living quarters, as they hold a fire place and windows. Another smaller stable has the old bread oven. A tap provides the complex with running water straight from the top mine.

Opposite the main house, on the other side of large terraces, there is a small cottage which used to be for storage. This building needs more work but could easily be converted into a two storey (holiday) home.

Land with 30ha, boasting beautiful views. The 30ha consists mostly of terraces, the soil is very fertile, there are a dozen olive trees, fig trees, cherry trees, apple, pear, bay leaf, elderberry, walnut and more. Although a part of the land still needs clearing, there is plenty of space to have a huge vegetable garden, plant more fruit and olive trees, grazing space for animals, and/or put up tents, tipis etc. The microclimate is an extra bonus. One of the unique things about this farm is that there is no shortage of water. After the property was bought a lot of water tanks have been found, dug out and fixed, there is a huge watertank with mine at the top corner of the property, that provides the water with high pressure to the stables and the main house, there are more tanks and mines on the lower terraces, the water has been running throughout the entire summer after the tanks and mines were cleared.

The opportunities for this place are endless. Because of the many buildings and the size of the land it is no problem to house a group of people. The land is big enough to provide plenty of food and water to sustain that. There are subsidy options for planting more olive, fruit and nut trees and/or to start farming the land with animals. Tourism is of course also an option, as there is plenty of space and some beautiful areas to put up structures like yurts, tipi’s and tents.

Located on the slopes of the Serra da Estrela Mountains. There are two access roads to the farm, one from the top which is maintained by local authorities, and one from the bottom at the N17, only 5 minutes away from Celorico da Beira (with its Tuesday market and all main amenities) and connection to the A25 motorway. 2 hours drive from Porto. The area has lots of historical towns like Linhares (home of the paragliding) and Folgosinho within short distance.
