Fantastic proposition of a large country house situated in the peaceful countryside just 5 mins drive from the historical town of Ourique which has all amenities for day to day living and many cafes, bars + restaurants it is also situated close to main roads, motorways, train and bus stations which make great links for airports both Lisbon and Faro its also just 40mins drive to beaches to both south and west coastlines.

 The property itself is well presented and offers not only 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms in the main house but a further 2beds and 2 bathrooms in a separate annexe and the present owner holds an A.L. license (for renting) which could be used for an extra income if required or just kept for entertaining family and friends.

 The property is set in 1.3 hectares of rich farm land with a small lake and animal houses to the rear which has all been separately fenced and gated.

Has you enter the property through the designer wrought iron gates is a lovely Mediterranean styled tree lined driveway which leads up to the main house and annexe.

To the right hand side is the approx 9×4m swimming pool and garage/small wine distillery. There is also ample parking spaces in the courtyard styled area in front of both houses.

 The gardens are very well kept and well stocked with mature trees and perennials providing colour and interest all year round.

 The main house has a covered terrace the full way across the front of the home, providing shaded seating areas all day long. There is also a covered terrace to the rear doubling up as a porch and again as shaded areas covering half the back of the house, this area provides views over the lake and animal shelters which have been designed nice and discreetly.

 Inside the main house is an open planned lounge/well equipped kitchen with room for dinning. Both these rooms have woodburning fires. One of the double bedrooms which is en-suite is situated to the right hand side of the house and to the left hand side are a further 3 double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with 3 of the 4 bedrooms having air conditioning.

 The house is of neutral decor and a good standard of fixtures and fittings throughout and more than ready to move into.

 The separate annexe consists of 2 bedrooms 2 bathrooms and a living / dinning area which are again of a good standard of fixtures and fittings, crisp clean interior and ready for use. The pool and tiled patio area as been compacted into its own nicely walled and elevated position providing excellent views over the surrounding Alentejan countryside. (Very peaceful).

 The owners have very cleverly designed this property and one of the many ideas was to place the garage, pool house  and small wine distillery underneath the swimming pool area.

 The neighbourhood is quite a sought-after location, being set in a popular hamlet close to amenities and even as a small, local, friendly bar a short walk away which is traditional and is frequently used by many different nationalities who live in the vicinity.

 This proposition would make an excellent home for a large family or someone who would like to do holiday rentals for an extra income but still would like to live within the grounds to oversee the business.

 It would also suit someone who wants to live self sufficiently making great savings on bills owing to the solar powered electrics and own borehole for water not forgetting the wine making facilities. (Most importantly).

  This proposition is of a good solid structure and was originally built to an excellent  standard approximately 20 years ago but as undergone many small renovation projects over recent years bringing the fixtures and fittings up to date matching todays standards i.e. Windows, doors etc…. this has been cleverly done and has managed to restore its traditional and rustic charming feel.
