With magnificent views to the coast and across to the mountains this managed farm has a mix of flat and gently sloping land with a variety of fruit and nut trees. There is a farmhouse with 3 bedrooms and a swimming pool, a warehouse with an area for the farm manager and an old cottage in ruins that could be rebuilt. In total there is nearly 62,000m2 of land which has been mostly planted and is fully irrigated from a borehole. Although set in peaceful countryside, it is less than 10 minutes from the medieval town of Silves as well as the market town of Algoz, and 20 minutes from the coast and beautiful beaches.
Set in an elevated position and surrounded by lawns, the farmhouse (219m<sup>2</sup>) has panoramic views south across farmland to the sea. A covered porch leads to the entrance hall which opens to a spacious lounge with wood-burning fireplace and dining area with sliding doors to a wrap-around covered terrace. There are windows on all sides to let in lots of sunshine and capture the views. The kitchen is divided from the dining area with a breakfast bar, and is well-fitted with cupboards. It has marble work-tops and a double sink under the window, a door to the garden and a separate utility room.
A door separates the bedrooms from the living area. The master bedroom has windows to the east and the south to let in the morning sun, built in cupboards and an en-suite bathroom with shower over the bath. The second bedroom has windows to the south and built-in cupboards. The third bedroom is to the north side also with two windows to let in lots of light and more built-in cupboards. The family bathroom has a shower over the bath.
The house is surrounded by lawns which slope down to the 8x4m heated pool and shady gazebo set against a natural stone wall. Underneath the house is a large garage. Extras include solar hot water, shutters and a satellite dish.
The warehouse is 64m<sup>2</sup> with one large room with windows, a bathroom, terrace and large covered area for storing harvested fruit and nuts or the tractor.
Also on the land is the ruin of an old cottage with an area of 110m<sup>2</sup>. This can be re-built for a second house or guest house.
The farm yields a cash crop of avocado, mango and vetiver, in addition to lemon and orange. There is also good yield from carob and almond and this has been used to compensate the farm manager. The walnut and macadamia trees are just reaching maturity and have started to yield crops. The property is owned by a Portuguese registered company.
