Full description:

Superb 100-year-old quinta with over 2 hectares of land and two registered ruins, one with sea view.

This traditional Algarvian Quinta has been completely restored, while maintaining the original authentic details. The roof has been recently insulated, and electricity and water pipes have been completely renewed. A solar water heater has been installed for hot water and there is a wood-burning stove in the lounge. A pipe system has been installed throughout the house which can be connected to a wood burning stove to heat all the rooms. The main house currently occupies 200m² with the potential to add a further 100m².

Furthermore, new windows and external aluminium doors have been fitted, as well as internal double and single doors which have been made by hand in the traditional style to preserve the original character. The floors in the lounge and office have original authentic Portuguese cement tiles, with Santa Catarina tiles through the rest of the house.

The quinta has three bedrooms, a kitchen, dining room, living room, office and bathroom, all on the ground floor. There are several outbuildings in the immediate vicinity of the quinta that are currently in use as storage and laundry rooms, and also houses the water filtration system. Some of these could also be adapted as extra guest rooms. For people who love character homes, this property is worth a visit!

At the back of the house is an informal terraced garden, perfect in the shade of the old carob tree in the summer. At the front of the Quinta is a traditional courtyard with the original cobbles. The land has lots of established olive, carob, laurel and orange trees, and also some vines.

The two ruins that are on the same property, have urban numbers with the possibility of building up to about 250m². They have their own access road and offer every possibility to build two more houses (subject to permission). The view from this location is beautiful with sea views.

The location is really perfect. Within 5 minutes you can get to the coast of the Ria Formosa, 5 minutes to the city of Olhao with larger supermarkets and many restaurants, fish market etc, 15 minutes from Faro airport and within walking distance there is a cafe and a good local restaurant. The area is wonderfully quiet without being remote. Easy to reach via an asphalt road, with only the last 80 meters of caminho. The house is accessed by electric gates for cars, and has gated foot access also into the courtyard, both with intercom systems.

This is an investment property, a project which has all kinds of possibilities such as setting up a B&B, alojamento local or turismo rural.

About Divine Home, Algarve

Are you looking to buy a property in Portugal?
Do you want help in finding the right property for you?
With these 7 steps you will have a successful purchase in Portugal:

1. Location, location, location; it is all about location. Get to know the areas, make sure you are well informed and that you experience the different areas to make sure you buy in the right location.

2. Choose an agency with an office located in the Algarve and an official AMI-license. This should be an agency with whom you can communicate very well, and is responsive and pro-active. Ask the agent to help in making the property selection and to organise all the viewings for you. Online you will only have access to more or less 50% of the properties for sale; the other 50% is not advertised on the large international portals but for sale with small local agencies and therefore you will get a much better selection when seeking the advice of a local agent.

3. Schedule your visits in advance; once you have booked your flight tickets, inform the agency of your choice and of when you will arrive and have the agent organise all your visits.

4. Remember when viewing; it is all about location! If you like a certain property, book a 2nd viewing and get to know the area before making a decision.

5. When finding the right house, choose the right lawyer. A good, trustable, communicative lawyer is very important to conclude the purchase. The lawyer is your legal advisor on the purchase, who needs to check all property documents and if there are mortgages or charges on the property and therefore it is very important to choose the right one.

6. In Portugal it is common to first sign a promissory contract; it is important that this contract contains all the necessary conditions for you as when signing this contract the purchase is legally binding under the conditions of the contract. In the contract the date for the title deed at the notary is mentioned; this is the moment where you will receive the keys and become the owner of the property.

7. Before going to the notary it is advisable to check the house on the day of the title deed and write down the meter readings to have all utility contracts being transmitted from the vendor to yourself. This avoids being disconnected which can take 2-3 weeks to get connected again to water or electricity.
