Land Size: 14600 M 2
Year Built: 1904
Fully equipped kitchen
From the entrance gate, a long cobblestone driveway, framed with bushes and trees, leads to a courtyard with a garage on one side and large terraces on the other that stretch along the whole of the front of the former farmhouse which was built in 1904. It has been refurbished, including a new kitchen, but many original features have been preserved to maintain the atmosphere of a typical Algarvean house. On the ground floor, the living and dining room occupy the whole width of the house with access from the kitchen. There is also a spacious master suite with a feature brick ceiling and dressing area in addition to a guest bedroom and bathroom. The first floor consists of two lovely bedrooms that share a family bathroom, one of which has a large balcony.
The former bread house was transformed into a rustic summer kitchen with wood ceiling and bare stone walls, a wonderful cool place for extensive lunches and dinners with family and friends.
The commercial part of the property includes various outbuildings that contain a large indoor riding arena of 450 sqm with seats for spectators, several stables with individual boxes and horse bays and a workshop. The outside areas next to the stables consist of a care and maintenance sector, three spacious paddocks with shelters and a Carriér of more than 3.500 sqm, which extends below the front terraces of the main house. Long rows of seats made of stone are positioned so that spectators can watch the Carriér and also enjoy the lovely views of the hills in the distance.
