This property is located on the Algarve West Coast and consists of a large quinta and two separate apartments few minutes drive to supermarkets, shops, banks and the international schools and kindergartens.
The quinta is situated between the village of Aljezur and the beautiful beaches of Arrifana and Monte Clerigo.
The house has a good sea view and is surrounded with fields suitable for horses grazing. The size of the land is 160,000 m2.
The living house is approximately 300 m2 in size, very well built in 2004. It contains five bedrooms, three bathrooms and a guest toilet, a large living room with an open fireplace, an open kitchen and a double garage.
In 2014 another 144 m2 were constructed, shared by two separate apartments. Each apartment has a bedroom, a bathroom and a big living with an open kitchen, a wood-burning stove, comfortable terraces facing south.
The house is surrounded with a large terrace covered with traditional Santa Catarina tiles. There is a very well built swimming pool of 32 m2. Next to the house are luxurious horse stables of 150 m2.
The total built construction area is approximately 600 m2.
The garden includes beautiful water pools with Japanese koi carp fish. There are plenty of fruit trees and grass land.
On the land there are three lakes, varying in size from small to very large and all legally suitable for floating luxury houseboats. These lakes are not only for pleasure and fun, thanks to the beautiful scenery and the possibility of having fish and water plants, but also very useful, for instance for watering the garden.
Besides the three lakes there are also several ponds in the garden, to enjoy the colourful fish and water lilies close to the house.
Given the location of the quinta in the natural park on the West Coast of the Algarve the lakes play a special part in the local ecosystem. All kinds of birds come to breed and feed. There's always something to watch for the nature lover.
The garden exists of many plants and trees. The house is surrounded by palm trees, grapes and figs. The ecological garden consists of full-grown fruit trees like oranges, pomegranates, lemons, plums and pears. All kinds of vegetables grow here, from pumpkins to zucchinis, from egg plants to peppers. All thanks to the fertile ground and available water.
Besides the unlimited amount of eucalyptus and acacia also many olive trees and oaks grow on the land. Agaves, aloë vera and medronho add to the rich flora. The original wild gladiolus and other such flowers can be found too. Not to forget: the cacti with their colourful and edible fruits.
Fields of grass and hay can be used for horses to graze. Cleared paths lead to the lakes and all corners of the land so walking and horse riding in the nature is all possible on private ground.
The great amount of unspoiled nature, in a serene atmosphere, with the possibility of agriculture and growing your own ecological food, makes this a special private park.
