This property is an inspired conversion of a traditional mountain quinta designed by an award-winning architect.
A hidden gem that overlooks its own valley with a mountain stream and extensive woodland with eucalyptus, oak and fruit trees. Whilst totally secluded, the property is just a five-minute drive from Monchique town and less than 30-minutes away from Portimão and the coast.
There are two adjoining plots of land giving a total of 5.4 hectares (13.3 acres), with the possibility of building another small property on one of the plots converted from an existing dwelling as well an outhouse currently used for storage but ideal for conversion to an art studio.
The property was once a working farm, and the house overlooks spectacular stone terraces that are centuries-old.
The accommodation resulting from the conversion comprises two separate structures; the main house where contemporary architecture has been masterfully integrated with the original farmhouse building employing a high-level of finish and prime materials and the guest cottage which has been renovated in the traditional style.
The main house offers three en-suite bedrooms, a study/box room, an open-plan lounge/dining area, guest WC and architecturally inspired hallways bathed in natural light.
The guest cottage has a cosy lounge and kitchen area with two bedrooms and one bathroom on the ground floor and a further upstairs bedroom in the loft space. The house has its own water supply from a natural spring located on the property.
On the outside, various delightful terrace spaces are ideally positioned to take in views of the valley whilst appreciating the architecture. There is a small swimming pool converted from the old water tank.
This is a truly unique property, ideal as a secluded home but also well-suited to operate a small rural tourism business with additional development possibilities. Eligible for Golden Visa.
