Full description:

A rare opportunity to acquire a cluster of prime development plots that would provide a stunning setting for individual luxury dwellings. Located 15 minutes from the historical town of Monchique, this is possibly the most picturesque area of the Algarve.
A well maintained but winding road through the Monchique mountains provides fabulous views and gives a taste of what to expect when you arrive at this exquisite secluded location.
Central to the plots lies a habitable three bedroom villa that is currently providing seasonal rental income to the owners. The property has potential for refurbishment and with clever design could be extended by utilising the adjoining ruin and plot.
Access to the ten hectares of available land is via a secondary lane bordered with eucalyptus and other indigenous vegetation.
This location would be ideal for a tranquil holiday retreat, a centre specialising in holistic therapies or a hub for nature lovers, or adventure getaways. This undisturbed region offers serenity and calm amongst the spectacular heights and backdrop of forests, natural springs and breathtaking countryside.
The individual plots can be briefly described as follows:
Plot 1 is of 3000sqm, includes a habitable three bedroom traditional Portuguese single storey villa and enjoys south facing views. Whilst some refurbishment might be preferred, the dwelling is in perfectly acceptable condition for comfortable living. The kitchen is fully equipped with a gas oven, granite worktops, fridge freezer and microwave. A separate utility room includes a washing machine, tumble dryer, wash basin and toilet. The lounge benefits from a fire place with a wood burning stove and high ceiling. The two double bedrooms incorporate built-in wardrobes, traditional Portuguese features and views to the open countryside. The third bedroom could alternatively be used as a study to provide for any home office requirements. The large main family bathroom is of modern design with a bath/shower, wash basin, toilet and bidet. Outside, the villa boasts a fabulous decking area with a pergola, eating area and a Jacuzzi which is perfectly positioned for enjoyment of the scenery on warm summer days, or clear starlit nights. The plot has the advantage of a registered borehole providing an unlimited supply of water, free of charge. Asking 375,000 EURO
