A property consisting of two large plots with three houses to renovate. It is located in a picturesque setting, with its own water fall. The stream has water all year long. Included in this sale are two large plots of land, on either side of a tarmac road with little traffic. One of the plots has an agricultural building on it, to store hay and a tractor and to accommodate the electric meter. A great spot for yurts or tipis, or for summer workshops. Electricity for the houses located on the terraced plot bordering the streams comes from there. Quite unusual, but at the time this was done with the knowledge and encouragement of the authorities.
The three houses are:
– one on one floor with a footprint of 27 square meters
– one on two levels, with a footprint of 63,2 square meters
– the main house on three levels with a footprint of 87,85 square meters.
The plots of land:
– the one bordering the stream has a total of 14.478 square meters.
– the other one, where the borehole and the electricity connection is, has a total area of 13.664 square meters.
The land bordering the stream is set on a number of larger terraces, secured by dry-built stone walls, beautifully handcrafted in ancient times. There is a small mill at the bottom of this plot, where flour used to be made from the grains which were grown on these terraces. There is also a wonderful waterfall in this stream. Just imagine the relaxing sound!
The land also boasts a number of mature orange trees and a large number of mature olive trees, yielding a good produce of virgin olive oil every year.
The three building are situated on the uppermost terrace of this plot, with great views into the valley and to the hills in the distance.
The buildings all need renovation and modernization works carried out, and together would make a wonderful family home.
The second plot of land is up the hill, accessed also by a tarmac road. This land is mostly flat, with a borehole for irrigation purposes. This plot also boasts a number of diverse mature fruit trees and fertile land for agriculture. A part of this land is mixed forest.
The property is located a 20 minute drive from the town of Sertã. Sertã has several supermarkets, shops, restaurants, snack bars and cafés, banks, indoor and outdoor pools, a public library, schools, health centers and private clinics, parks and municipal buildings and is easy to access off the IC8 dual carriageway.
The town of Oleiros is 30 minutes drive away.
Both the airports of Lisbon and Porto are about 200 km away.
