Located in the countryside just a short drive from the resorts of Lagos and Luz, this level piece of fertile land measures 16,880 square metres (just over 4 acres) and has an existing ruin of 142 square metres. The local council has recently granted planning permission for a 3 bedroom single storey villa with a habitable area of 150 square metres that would replace the existing ruin. The new villa will be better situated within the plot, as the current ruin is located right on the boundary, adjacent to the access track. Its worth noting that the are also plans available for a much bigger villa of 250 square metres with a pool, that could be submitted to the council if required.
The current villa will comprise an entrance hall leading to a spacious living room with high wooden ceilings and a fireplace. The south-west side of the living room will have huge double height windows, perfect if a wooden mezzanine level is required in order to utilise the roof space. Patio doors will open from the living room to the large front terrace. The kitchen will be open-plan to the living room. A hallway leads to 2 guests bedrooms and a master suite, all with patio doors to the terrace. The master bedroom will have its own private bathroom, plus there will be a 2nd family bathroom. There will also be a laundry room and a store cupboard off the hall. A terrace surrounds the whole property.
The peaceful location is accessed via a quiet rural track, but the location is by no means isolated as there are neighbours dotted around the area. Its a 10 minute drive in either direction to the coastal resorts of Luz or Lagos. There's already an electric post on the land and mains water in the access track, meaning a simple process to connect. The plot is ideal for keeping animals and/ or growing vegetables as its flat and fertile (not rocky land). There are beautiful tracks through the countryside, perfect for horse riding.
Planning consent for the 3 bedroom villa has already been granted and all that remains to be done for the building license to be issued by the council is the submission of the detailed plans (electric, plumbing, etc.). Estimated build cost is approximately €200.000 - €225,000.
This is a fantastic opportunity to build your beautiful dream home in the peaceful countryside of the Western Algarve.
