Beautifully Renovated Traditional Farm House for sale in Raposeira, Algarve
Situated along a small country lane, this lovely, detached Portuguese 'quinta' offers peace and tranquillity, yet is within easy walking distance of the wonderful little village of Raposeira, with its local cafés and a beautiful church. The property comprises 3 bedrooms in total, split between 2 bedrooms in the main part of the house, plus an annex with a living room, kitchenette, wet room and mezzanine sleeping area. The annex has its own independent access to the rear of the property via patio doors to the garden and its own parking area and the total plot area is over 6,300m2.
The main house retains the original solid wood front door, leading to an entrance hall. From there, there's a cosy living room with a log burner. There's an opening through the thick stone walls to the fitted kitchen, which comes with a full oven plus a combi microwave-oven, a gas hob and a dishwasher. There's room for a dining table in the kitchen, with large patio doors to the terrace with a pergola, overlooking the 1.5 acres (6,390 m2) of land that comes with the property. There is even a glimpse of the ocean in the distance!
Back inside, the 2 bedrooms both have built-in wardrobes and share a shower room with a heated towel rail. The property was sympathetically renovated 5 years ago, with new double-glazed PVC windows and aluminium shutters, plus a new kitchen and bathrooms. The bedrooms have beautiful engineered wood veneer flooring, whilst the rest of the house has new tiling throughout.
The property also benefits from an outside laundry room, an outside shower room with toilet and sink, plus a useful small store room behind the annex. There's also unused attic space running the length of the property with standing height in the centre.
The garden surrounding the property comprises flower beds and a sheltered gravel area protected by a rockery, the perfect spot for sun-bathing and entertaining. An old caravan serves as a potting shed or studio and there is a large area that has been used as a vegetable garden. There's a large, relatively flat paddock with its own separate entrance that would be perfect for horses or keeping other animals. The plot is mostly fenced, with 2 distinct parking areas (for the main house and the annex). A borehole supplies water to the house, and a well with pump supplies water for irrigation. Guttering around the house also collects rainwater to use for irrigation. The field has a mature lemon, pear, medlar, clementine and some olive trees. The owner has also recently planted young fig, apricot, apple, pomegranate, medronho and almond trees.
It's just a 10 minute drive to the beautiful beaches at Zavial and Ingrina on the sheltered South Coast (5 kms away) and just slightly longer to the West Coast surfing beaches of Castelejo and Cordoama (7kms away). The natural beauty of the Costa Vincentina Natural Park is just 2 minutes from this property. Raposeira has a mini-market and Vila do Bispo, just 3kms away, has a municipal market, supermarket, bank, post office, school and restaurants.
This property would suit anyone looking for a peaceful country home that's within walking distance of a village and a short drive to beaches and coastal towns.
