Property Description

Set in a hidden valley, a private, peaceful, off grid, eco farmhouse with its own water supply. Characterful rustic farmhouse with 3 spacious, well lit bedrooms, two washrooms, one interior & another wet room external to the house, which also serves as a laundry room. The kitchen/diner has a double sink, storage areas & rustic units with wood effect worktop, a large inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove. The ground floor is natural slate slabs, except for the workshop/barn area.
The water is heated with two economical gas boilers. There are two additional reception rooms, one is a hall/dining room, overlooking the terrace & one an alcove room, which provides a cool living room/retreat/siesta area.

There is an adjoining barn & workshop area. The land is 11 hectares, some of which is laid to pasture ( 5 paddocks ) & some of which comprises the habitat of the natural park for its unique wildlife & flora.

There are a number of trails leading out from the Quinta onto the surrounding parkland in a number of directions, providing wonderful views & landscapes to see at every turn of the trail. A stream run through the valley. There is a pump house to drive water into a large capacity water storage tank, situated above the farm house & large freshwater pond, which is on the property providing refreshing, wild swimming in the summer months. There is plenty of firewood on the land, some is already cut.

Located in the Alto Alentejo region of Portugal, almost midway between the city of Portalegre & the beautiful medieval town of Castelo de Vide. No immediate neighbours, approximately 2 km from a small village with a cafe/bar. A short drive to the border with Spain & very good prices for gas & fuel.

All equipment, i.e.: generator, pumps, chainsaw, strimmer & a small Iseki Landhope 200 tractor, will be included in the sale. It’s possible to include any or most of the furniture in the sale also.

The quinta would lend it’s potential, with the addition of temporary dwellings, cabins, yurts, tipis, cob or earth bag construction, as a deep nature retreat or a small eco settlement.

A rare opportunity to live “Nil bill” & close to nature in the peaceful Serra Sao Mamede natural park.
Photos don’t do justice to the beauty & serenity of this lovely place & it needs to be seen to be fully appreciated.

The asking price is fully negotiable & I’m open to all reasonable offers.
