This very private property is hidden away amongst pine trees but easily reached on a well maintained dirt road. It sits in a conservation area (South west Alentejo Natural Park) meaning that nothing more can be built around it. From the house there are amazing sea views through the trees. A very short walk across the land brings you to a secluded beach. A river runs through the property and water can be pumped from this for irrigation use although the garden is mostly planted to survive the sandy substrate and coastal climate. Photo voltaic swiveling panels provide electricity with a generator back up and solar heats the water which comes from a borehole. There is a natural pond surrounded by water plants and a water tank in the ground which could be used to cool down on a Summer’s day.
The house comprises two light and airy bedrooms each with en-suite bathroom, a guest toilet, open plan living and dining area opening into a large conservatory and a rustic kitchen with pantry. Adjoining the house is a garage and a large bread oven. A further building houses a utility room and a technical room.
The house has thick clay walls and an insulated roof keeping it cool in summer and maintaining the heat from radiators and two log burners in the winter.
This comfortable and unique property could be a permanent residence or equally would be an amazing holiday home close to the town but ‘away from it all’.
