STUNNING VIEWS OF OPEN COUNTRYSIDE
SELF CONTAINED APARTMENT
Farmhouse near Beja substantially reduced from the agents original valuation of 365,000 euros
The monte (farmhouse) is located in Ferreira do Alentajo. It is 100 miles south of Lisbon, 100 miles north of Faro and 35 miles from the beautiful west coast. There are lovely large lakes for fishing and boating all within 20 minutes by car. Can be sold furnished and ready to move into, this spacious farmhouse with self contained annex/ studio apartment and partial central heating is outstandingly good value and a sound investment as values are expected to rise when Beja airport, fifteen minutes away by car, goes international. The farmhouse is rural yet only five minutes drive to the town of Ferreira which has all amenities. These include cafes, bars, a park, clinic, doctors surgeries, dentist, veterinary surgery, outdoor and indoor swimming pools, supermarkets, builders' merchants and hardware stores. Despite all these amenities the town retains its Portuguese charm.
All that has been retained from the original farmhouse is its welcoming inglenook fireplace and magnificent chimney. The new farmhouse, completed in 2004, was built around the old hearth and has combined the best of traditional style with contemporary comfort. Its construction is sturdy and well insulated for warmth in winter and cool in summer.
The house comprises sitting room, kitchen/ diner, entrance hallway with cloakroom, three double bedrooms, all en suite ( one of which is situated in the annex) plus annex. All rooms are very spacious. The annex is a self contained apartment comprising open plan kitchen diner and sitting room with the third en suite bedroom. It is perfect for rental or private holiday home for friends and family. Accessed from outside is a utility/ toilet/ laundry room.
There is approximately one acre of garden immediately surrounding the villa which is partly laid to a pavered patio with a swimming pool.
The house is situated in approximately ten acres of land with stunning views of open countryside. The land is mainly olive groves planted with over one hundred olive trees with some orange, plum, fig, pear and almond trees and grape vines. All is surrounded by open farmland giving a feeling of pastoral tranquility. Hour upon hour of sunshine and refreshing breezes make for a comfortable climate and provide free, clean energy through solar panels and a wind generator - enough to supply the household appliances and to pump water from the property's bore hole. there is also an occasionally used diesel backup generator. There is an option to use the new two billion euro irrigation system which has been installed around all farmland in the Ferreira area.
The farmhouse would be ideally suitable for self sufficient living but is currently being used as a holiday get away for many months of the year.
Greatly reduced price of 200,000 pounds (230,000 euros)
Would be willing to consider a smaller property in part exchange
