Property Description

A one of a kind 420m2 modern villa with three apartments attached to the main building. Easily accessible and licensed as alojamento local. Built under architecture, modern design and with all available modern utilities.

Ideally for large families or a Bed & Breakfast.

The property is 8,652m2 and has river frontage.

Possibility for new constructions on the premises.

The house was originally built in the late 1990s. With great eye for details the last few years it has been further developed and both rebuilt and extended. The works have been led and coordinated by an architect and some input of a Feng-Shui consultant has been used. The construction has all the necessary building approvals and licenses. The currently run Boutique B&B has the ‘Alojamento Local’ (local Lodging) license. The house is very light and open and has a warm atmosphere. The outdoor living aspect is ultimately taken advantage of.

Part of the inventory/ indoor and outdoor furniture can be negotiated to be included in the sale.

Ready to move into.
