Full Description

A charming country house and seperate summer house within extensive grounds situated in Arco da Calheta. This traditional country property and estate is believed to date from around 1865 and underwent a full restoration and modernisation in 1996 by the current owners. The property is situated in a rural setting at a height of 800 meters above sea level and is completely dedicated to living with nature.

The property has around 2.4acres, or around 10,000 square meters of mixed established and managed forestry with the property owners choosing to allow mature trees to grow all close to the property bringing nature to the doorstep.

Upstairs there is a traditional central library area that is open and airy, this gives the upstairs a warm and interesting glow. There are 2 traditional farmhouse bedrooms and the main large family bathroom could be easily refurbished to a fully modern standard. There is also high quality and effective stone marble radiator heating within all the main interior areas of the Property.

A separate traditional and particularly charming garden summerhouse with galley kitchen, lounge, vaulted bedroom and bathroom is in the grounds and has excellent tourism potential.

There is also a wonderful butterfly garden and extensive ornamental planting has taken place over 3 decades. There are many tree species, varied flowers plus many fruit trees all within the extensive and private gardens.
The property is broadly described as south facing with complete privacy.
There is a traditional kitchen with an attractive antique range cooker, there are other modern kitchen appliances included in the sale. There is also a pantry and plant growing conservatory off the kitchen area. The living and dining room features a stone fireplace as the centrepiece, a beautiful quality wooden floor and a staircase leading upstairs through an open gallery stairwell, a guest service bathroom is located under the stairwell.

The surrounding location is surprisingly flat and is certainly not described as very isolated as a café is located just 30 meters away and a restaurant a further 100m away slightly below the property.
Also close nearby is a successful touristic development of private rental villas and several Levada’s are within walking distance below the property. The actual property grounds also feature a secondary building with variable touristic potential, there are also straightforward possibilities of a rural tourism business being established.

A large deep water-tank exists, this is currently unused and empty, however it could be converted into a trout pond or ornamental water area. The airport is less than an hour and the beach and supermarkets are a short drive away.
