About The Property
Fabulous Mill property, sited in a stunning location between bends on the River Dueça and close to the the medieval town of Penela. The property has over 100 metres of river frontage that feeds a waterfall and pool at the end of the garden.
The property comprises mill, miller´s house and large olive press (The Lagar). The various stone buildings have a combined footprint of over 600m2 and the finished project would have at least 8 bedrooms. There is approximately 2500m2 of land, surrounded by stunningly beautiful countryside. A project has been submitted to convert the mill and miller´s house to a family home.
Restoration/re-building works are currently in progress on the mill and miller´s house. This will give at least a 3-bedroom family home with the opportunity to make more bedrooms, very simply, if required.
Full plans are available on request. The current plans can be extended a little if required.
The Lagar (Olive Press)
The plans are for a 5-bedroomed (all en-suite) house, including facilites for disabled, and a kitchen, living room and dining area.
Full plans available on request.
The three buildings on completion would be at least 8 bedrooms (room for more if required). This is an interesting development with lots of potential. The buyer has the option of a spacious family home (mill and miller´s house) and potential rental income from The Lagar as a separate entity. The property would make an ideal Rural Tourism project; perfect for anyone seeking a new life in Portugal while generating an income.
Another possibility - the two projects are registered individually: the mill and miller´s house as one unit and the Lagar as another. Both projects have land, so neither will be landlocked, and can be sold separately.
Electricity is now on site.
The property has access from the country road that links the towns of Miranda Do Corvo and Penela. The main IC8 road that leads west to the coastal resort of Figueira da Foz is 10 minutes. Coimbra, famous for its university and former capital city, is 30 minutes to the north and the Knights Templar town of Tomar is 40 minutes to the south.
Lisbon airport: 1hr.30mins.
Porto airport: 1hr.45mins.
MIRANDA DO CORVO: Miranda is located approx 5kms from the property. Framed by densely wooded mountains, the town of Miranda do Corvo has a remote history, although its ancient castle, conquered by the Moors in 1116, has almost completely disappeared and only the bell tower and cistern still remain. The town has a beautiful church situated on a hill overlooking the area. A large "Rio de Janeiro"-type statue of Jesus also looks out over the town. There is a weekly market selling fresh local produce on Wednesdays. The traditional speciality of Miranda do Corvo is chanfana (a sort of goat stew), which is thought to have been created at the monastery of Semide. Local handicrafts include works in lace, a tradition also born at the monastery, and the "Almalaguês weaving", woven and embroidered cotton fabric which is used to make tapestries and bedspreads.
PENELA: This sleepy medieval town with its 11th century castle is located approx. 8kms from the property. The Castle of Penela is a Listed Monument and its construction started in the 11th century, although what you can see of the Castle these days only goes back to the 14th and 15th centuries. Inside is the Church of St Michael, which was originally built in the 12th century. Penela has all amenities including banks, supermarket, library, healthcentre, indoor swimming pool, restaurants/cafés and a farmers market selling local produce on Thursdays.
COIMBRA (30 mins): In terms of historic significance and romantic beauty, Coimbra is second only to Lisbon and Oporto. Its ancient buildings cling to the side of the hill that rises above the curves of the river Mondego, the ornate buildings of the famous University of Coimbra are its crowning glory. Coimbra has much else to offer the visitor not least an array of medieval churches. Accessing the old part of the city through the Arco de Almedina, we find two cathedrals known as Se Velha (old) and Se Nova (new) referring to their respective ages, and though the ‘new’ one dates back to the 17th century its senior was founded in 1170.
TOMAR (40 mins): Tomar lies in the most fertile region of Portugal. Under the modern city lie the Roman cities of Nabantia and Sellium. After the conquest of the region from the Moors in the Portuguese ´Reconquista`, the land was granted in 1159 as a fief to the Order of the Knights Templar. Its then Grand Master in Portugal, and Tomar's somewhat mythical founder, Gualdim Pais, laid in 1160 the first stone of the Castle and Monastery that would become the Head-Quarters of the Order in Portugal. This magnificent ensemble of 12th- to 16th-century architecture and art, it is the main monument of the city and one of the most important in Portugal. It was declared a Unesco World Heritage Site in 1983. Tomar has a good farmers market on Fridays. Praia do Osso da Baleia (good surfing beach) 45 mins.
FIGUEIRA DA FOZ (45 mins): The nearest coastal resort is Figueira da Foz, which is located on the Portuguese west coast located half way between Lisbon and Porto. The town is famous for its great beaches - including reputedly Europe’s largest beach. Figueira has on offer a huge variety of sports and activities and is located in a relatively unspoilt and undeveloped area of Portugal.
Fabulosa propriedade anteriormente usada como Moinho, situado numa zona muito bonita perto do rio Dueça e da vila medieval de Penela. A propriedade tem mais de 100 metros a confrontar com o rio.
A propriedade é composta por moinho, casa de moleiro e prensa de azeite (O Lagar). Os vários edifícios em pedra têm uma área de mais de 600m2 e o projecto acabado ficaria com 8 quartos. Com cerca de 2500m2 de terreno, rodeado por uma paisagem belíssima.
A Reconstrução está em andamento no Moinho e na casa do moleiro, o resultado será uma T3, com a oportunidade de fazer mais quartos, se necessário.
Podemos ceder o projecto mediante pedido. O projecto actual poderá ser ampliado, se necessário.
O projecto foi submetido e espera-se a sua aprovação no final do verão de 2012. O projecto para o Lagar é de uma casa com 5 quartos (todos suite), incluindo rampas para deficientes físicos, uma cozinha, sala de estar e de jantar.
Os três edifícios depois de concluídos teriam pelo menos 8 quartos (espaço para mais se necessário). Este é um investimento interessante, com muito potencial. O comprador tem a opção de uma casa familiar muito espaçosa (moinho e casa de moleiro) e usar o lagar para rendimento, totalmente separado. A propriedade seria excelente para um projecto de Turismo Rural, perfeito para quem procura uma nova vida em Portugal.
Outra opção –
Os dois projectos estão registados individualmente: o moinho e a casa de moleiro com um artigo e o Lagar com outro. Ambos os projectos têm terreno, assim sendo, poderão ser vendidos separadamente.
