Nearly 2 hectares Land, three dwellings including a Stone House and income from two beautiful, ample Cabins. This property has been valued at over €200,000 so it is a real bargain at €125,000.
A really beautiful plot of land amounting to 1.95 hectares (just under 5 acres), situated only 1200 metres from the village of Medelim in the Beira Baixa region of Castelo Branco.
This small estate has a stone house with a footprint of around 100m2 which has a brand new roof, a rendered interior and 4 good strong walls with an annex for storage (plumbed and fitted with a bathroom) plus an old stone animal shelter which could also be converted. The property is secured by a new chain link fence and metal gate.
There are 2 beautiful, very sturdily-built cabins each with a 50m2 footprint, equipped with a fitted bathroom including a spa shower. The main space is occupied by a kitchen, seating, dining and sleeping area and each also has a spacious balcony. One of the cabins has an extension with a separate bedroom.
The property benefits from a fully-fitted 1kW solar power system with a turnable array, plus its own water supply fed from a water mine into a new 3,000-litre tank.
Included in this sale are three large medieval jousting-style tents each with a permanent wooden floor. Outside there are two lovely picnic spaces each with a fire pit, ideal for those warm summer BBQs.
The property boasts over 350m of water front along a small river, a large well for potable water which has a wheel with buckets to draw water. (The buckets have fallen into disrepair but the main structure is still good. This system is known in Portuguese as a ‘Nora’ from the Arabic ‘Noria’ and in Iran is known as a Persian Wheel.)
The property is home to over 400 types of trees with some of them over 100 years old. There are around 80 mature olive trees, 60 mature cork oak and around 75 immature cork oak. Around 45 pine trees with half in full maturity and a variety of holme oak, oak, willow and ash plus a few fig trees and a couple of fruit trees, cherry and pear.
The land is fertile and ripe for cultivation and the access is excellent along a tarmac road.
The property has 4 deep walled terraces in good condition and along the waterfront there are wild ducks, terrapins, grouse, a variety of birds and the occasional otter. The telephone line is around 100m away and would be connected quite easily for Internet access. This property would make a lovely family home and could be ideal for camping as there is plenty of shade.
Building permission would be granted for a habitation, not exceeding 400m2 if required. This is an ideal purchase for that special person looking for a peaceful home on a small estate which would also generate an income.
