Full description:

The property is located in a quiet valley 8 km north east of the picturesque village of Sao Marcos da Serra, approximately 40 kilometres north of Guia/Albufeira in an area of outstanding beauty. Take the IP1 and Cardunchal is a tiny hamlet on the higher grounds of a quiet valley, a sunny location with lovely views over the Algarvean countryside. Local Farmers can be found on small holdings, there is an abundance of beautiful wild flowers, and you can take a dip in the river close by.
Sao Marcos da Serra  has a chemist, medical centre, petrol, cafes, bars and restaurants. Boiao is only 2 km from the hamlet and has mail collection, bar/cafe and a small supermarket. The village is only a 40 minute drive from the commercial centres on the Algarve, golf coures and fabulous beaches.
This is a perfect location for those who love country living in a peaceful and tranquil environment and enjoy walking, cycling and horse riding.
The cottage is on a plot of approximately 3 acres (12,420 sq metres) and Planning permission was granted in 2003 for a 162 square metre, 2 bedroom cottage with dining room, lounge with fireplace, kitchen, laundry and store room.  There would be a terrace, swimming pool and garage.  The building work was started and the main brickwork and roof have been established, the windows have been infilled to stop illegal access.  Unfortunately this was not completed due to the serious ill health of the owner.
Electricity is available on site and can be connected to the building, an owner would need to apply for a borehole license to connect water (common practice in the area).
As the building is incomplete, a new owner would be able to continue and follow the existing plans or apply for building permission as a new project creating a home of their choosing. The original plans for the cottage are available.
The public road leading to the plot divides the land in two, the road is only used by local farmers and it would be possible to fence the entire property with a gate if required.
This property presents an exciting project for those who want a country cottage, a get away for residents who like to fish, hunt and ride, or sports enthusiasts who want an idyllic location offering outdoor pursuits.
All plans are available, and documents are in order.
