These two OLD quintas could either provide the basis for a new building project OR a real challange for the DIY enthusiast. If you come to Portugal to and want the authentic experience amongst a small community near the beaches this might be the one. Property description. Two terraced quintas and outhouses in bad condition with a total covered area of 180 m2 and sitting in a plot of fenced land measuring c. 1.148 m2. The quinta's were originally built somewhere in the early 1900 with 50 cm thick natural stone walls, pole and cane roofs with Roman tiles. This is a serious renovation job for a couragous DIY person or another option is to knock everything down and do a project for a complete new house.
