VIllage House Ruin, Ready to Rebuild With a Small Garden for sale in Espiche, Algarve
This little Portuguese village house has been stripped back to bare walls ready to renovate into a beautiful little house with garden.
The property is on a slope with the main ruin (measuring 51 m2) at the top on the plot and a small single room ruin (16m2) down steps on the lower part of the plot. The main ruin would make a lovely one bedroom cottage, whilst the smaller ruin could be used as a BBQ house or laundry/ utility room. Given the slope of the land, it would be easy to install a small above ground pool that would blend nicely into the garden.
The 2 sections of outdoor space (upper and lower) give a nice amount of potential garden area and the property faces south, so has a lovely sunny position. There's a gate for direct access into the garden from the street. The main entrance into the upper ruin is directly off the street where there is ample parking.
Renovation of the property without making any external changes to the existing house can generally be done without the need for an architectural project. Alternatively you could submit a project to build a brand new house. In this case, a 2 storey house with 3 bedrooms would easily be possible.
The property is in the centre of the village and is easy walking distance to cafes, bars and restaurants. There is a mini-market and a municipal market in Espiche, as well as a primary school and skate park. It's just a 2 - 3 minute drive to the beach in Luz and the much bigger town of Lagos is just a short 5 minute drive away.
This is the perfect opportunity to build your own home in Portugal at an affordable price. We can assist with builders and architects if necessary. Please ask for further information regarding quotes.
