Situated in the foothills of Marvao in the beautiful and quiet Sao Mamede Natural Park in the Alentejo this three bedroom property has been renovated and is ideal for someone who is looking for an established place where the hard work has been done.
Perfect as a family home & ready to move in, the property also has plenty of scope & potential for further development as a permaculture / smallholding project or rural tourism if desired.
All areas of the land have been cleared and organically maintained for at least nine years and there is plenty of water on the site.
The property needs to be seen to fully appreciate all its unique features; including an original separate bread oven, extra outside solar showers areas with stunning views, an extensive outside patio for relaxing and a large workshop.
