Property Description

 This deceptively spacious and airy Alentejan House was built in the traditional Monte style in 2006 . It sits in 7.5 hectares of lovely Alentejo countryside with beautiful views from every window,the terrace surrounding the pool,the covered verandah ,the dining terrace to the side of the house and the front door .

The house was built for the current owners as a family home but in the latter years has been used as a successful rental holiday home when not used by them.It has been registered as an Alojomento Local and has had 5 star reviews by guests. 

The property is ideal for those seeking a home in a beautiful location with easy access to airports in Lisbon and Faro ,the stunning West Coast and its national park and the Algarve with all its tourist resorts.The house is about 2 km from a small village Garvao and 13 km from a larger town Ourique with all its facilities.It would be wonderful as a permanent home with the possibility of building 250sq m of agricultural building-planning was granted for this when the house was built or using it as a holiday home with an opportunity to achieve a rental income.

Outside areas

Cachorros sits in 7.5 hectares-the immediate area around the house has been fenced off enabling us to plant shrubs and trees that are low maintenance. We have installed irrigation to several areas -pool area,pots and planters to front of house and the walled garden area that currently is used  for fruit trees-apricot,plum,fig,apple and pear. There is plenty of scope to make vegetable beds near to the walled garden. The water  is supplied from our own borehole and the irrigation is programmed by  a Hunter system.
