This property sits directly in the middle of the rectangular 5,55 hectare agricultural plot, surrounded by idyllic Alentejo countryside, with views across wheat fields. Although constructed in 2013, it is in the typical Portuguese style with some modern touches. Built to the highest of standards, well insulated, with double glazed windows, solar panel water and its own borehole, allowing this property to achieve a B energy classification.

Leaving the main tarmac road on the border of the property, you head down a country track which runs the entire length of the property’s boundary. Two thirds along the private track, you will find the entrance gate. There is a substantial amount of parking available here which would be suitable for farm vehicles or a motorhome as well as regular vehicles.

The house is flanked by areas of gravel and planted with succulents and shrubs including lavender and rosemary. Many rose bushes also thrive here. A covered terrace tiled in a pleasant grey tone offers an al fresco dining area with superb country and pool views. The property consists of 2 entrance halls, a master bedroom with opaque glass fitted wardrobe and a full bathroom with tub and shower. The living/dining room is spacious and currently also has an office area. Here you will find a salamander with a decorative tiled floor to ceiling back. The kitchen is very modern, with ‘soft close’, red high gloss units and marble counter tops. The base units have hidden drawers behind simple doors with nickel handles. There is plenty of storage space in this kitchen and also a breakfast bar by the window. The kitchen leads directly to the guest bedroom with immediate access to the veranda/pool.

Beyond the garden you will find a fruit and vegetable patch, an assortment of fruit trees scattering the plot and three fenced paddocks occupying a total of 3 hectares with the remaining land currently partially fenced but able to support 3 further enclosures. This property is a dream for people who wish to live the country life, away from the hustle and bustle of city living. The local village is located 1100m on foot, from the property which has a local bar and small shop. Local town shopping with supermarkets, banks, health centre, restaurants and bars is within a 20 minute drive. The Alentejo cities of Beja and Grandola are reached by car in 35 minutes, the unspoiled Atlantic west coast in under an hour. There is a nearby fluvial beach where there are many picturesque walks, a cafe and water-based activities.
