A unique opportunity to buy a home and income venture close to the famous historical port of Lagos, one of the most stunning areas on the West Coast of the Algarve. This extensive property has in the past offered bed and breakfast, and holiday accommodation . There is the possibility to use the old horticultural land and construct a camping site for motor homes – much needed in this beautiful area.
An old Quinta with an ambience of the colonial era, beautifully landscaped gardens, with large sun terraces around the swimming pool and a tennis court.
The small holding is approximately 4 hectares with an abundance of fruit trees in orchards. The original glass/greenhouses used for a horticultural business are still in existence but in need of some repair. However , this area is around 2,000 square metres and could be used for many different ventures to bring additional income.
The Farmhouse itself has a large family room, through to the Lounge with old log burner and stairs leading to a mezzanine level used as an office. There is a country style kitchen with outside utility room. A huge dining and entertainments room ideal for family gatherings and parties is a wonderful feature. The original walls and stonework add character and the accommodation is decorated in a traditional manner in keeping with the era of the building. There are three bedrooms in the main house, the master has an ensuite and a split family bedroom has a separate bathroom.
Attached to the Farmhouse is a most delightful 2 bedroom cottage with a small lounge, kitchenette and bathroom. A studio apartment is located in the grounds and there is a guest bedroom at the end of the sun terrace.
The sun terrace over by the large swimming pool has so many interesting features, with plenty of space for al fresco dining and an outside kitchen with barbeque area, bar, dishwasher and fridge, shaded with a traditional beam and reed roof.
Two solar panels supply the Farmhouse and cottage, and there is a borehole with cisterna, separate well and mains water to the property. There is a canal which supplies the computerised irrigation system and 2 septic tanks.
This old Quinta with its Farmhouse and additional rental accommodation offers so many possibilities to create a wonderful lifestyle here in the Algarve. Alternatively it could be converted into a more contemporary residence.
