Monchique – Cerca da Rita
Farmhouse on large fenced property with ample fruit trees.
New in our books!
This traditional Portuguese farmhouse is located about 5 minutes driving from Monchique, on the foothills of Picota mountain, near the old footpath leading to Alferce. The access by means of a council maintained dirt road leads to the completely fenced farm, which is still being used as such by the current owners.
There is a very spacious chicken coop in the cork oak forest above the house itself, which measure around 154m2 all-in all, excluding the several outbuildings used to store hay and an old wooden pig-stall.
The house inside is very traditional, and could definitely do with some modernising. Structurally the farmhouse is very sound though, meaning any renovations should be quite straightforward to do. Behind the house there is a large covered area currently used for wood storage.
There is electricity and telephone, as well as plenty of spring water from its own source above the property.
The spacious 1.2 hectare+ property consists of a cork oak forest, as well as 10 plus terraces down from the house, with ample mature fruit and citrus-trees such as apples, pears, plums, lemons, grapes, bananas, etc.
The entire property is completely private, with its own access.
This would be the ideal property for people who are looking for a mature, well-established farmhouse/countryhouse not far from Monchique.
