Smallholding with a two-bedroom farmhouse with annexes and a ruin to rebuild

€ 195.000,= / £ 164,814.= *

The house is well insulated, has double glazed windows and doors and thus provides a very comfortable atmosphere, cozy warm in the winter and nice and cool in the hot summer days.

The garden to the rear and side of the house is fully fenced. There is an apple tree and several olive trees to provide a nice shady area to sit and relax and a water tank which can be filled with water to create a plunge pool for the hot summer months.

There is also a covered well that has been turned into decorative raised herb garden.

There are three outbuildings in the garden area. One was formally used as a smoke house and contains a large traditional bread oven which could easily be restored. Another outbuilding contains the water storage tank and pressure pump to the house and the third is currently being used to store the garden tools. This area could be converted to a Summer Kitchen.

The gate from the garden takes you to the olive grove where there are approximately 50 very old olive trees that have been well maintained, with a yield of 600+ kilos of organic olives. There are also several fruit trees providing apples, plums and cherries.

At the side of the olive grove is a large goat shed which backs on to the smokehouse on one side and joins onto a large open fronted storage area. This space is currently being used as a wood store and hay barn.

There are steps in here which lead to a room over the goat shed and from that room you can walk out on to the flat roof of the smokehouse.
Walking up on the plot to the rear of the house we have a threshing circle and an old stone ruin with a footprint of 31 square meters, registered as storage, which can be rebuilt. Behind this is a large area which consists of mixed forest containing pine trees, cork oaks, arbutus and many other endemic bushes and aromatic plants.

To the front of the house and on the other side of the dirt path is a small terrace with a few more olive trees. A short dirt path at the side of the terrace leads into a large flat field which borders a stream that runs water all year long. A section of this field has been fenced off to create a vegetable plot, with a separate area for chickens and ducks. Irrigation for the vegetable plot is pumped from the stream.

The land has been worked organically for the past seven years.
The property is located 4,2 km from the center of Cernache do Bonjardim, which is a 10 minute drive.
