Property Layout

The Quinta includes 12 registered buildings (urban parcels), eight of which are residential buildings and four are outbuildings.
Two of the houses are ready to move in, the main building at the entrance of the property and a beautifully renovated natural stone house on the opposite side.
The main house has a large bedroom with a sleeping gallery (easily dividable in two separate bedrooms), kitchen and living space, spacious bathroom with shower and bathtub, large terrace overlooking the property, entrance area with wintergarden and several cellar rooms.
The secondary house has been entirely renovated in a beautiful, rustic way and consists of a bright kitchen and living room, bedroom with sleeping attic, bathroom and storage spaces.
Both houses are entirely functional and have independent solar-systems with their own energy storage.

The remaining natural stone buildings find themselves in different conditions, some in ruins, some with a good building structure.
Apart from the buildings there are in total 4 high-quality timber yurts, which were placed along beautiful spots under the shade of large oak trees.

The main property consists of approx. 11 hectares of land, is largely terraced and has lots of fertile soil. There is a seldom variety of healthy fruit trees, such as pears, pomegranades, plums, hazelnuts, lemons, oranges, mandarines, figs, kiwis, cherries, kakis, peaches, chestnuts, different grape vines, olives and more. Several agriculture terraces are naturally irrigated by the stream, which flows year-around through the property and creates for beautiful and fertile environments.

Upstream one finds another separate piece of land, a wild nature-plot with approx. 10.000 m2 bordering a small natural lake. Both parcels provide for beautiful spots in the middle of nature, along the stream, in the oak forest or next to the lake… to reflect, meditate, enjoy and simply to be!

There are several storage buildings as well as stable options on the land; currently it is home to chicken and goats.
There is a plot, adjacent to the main parcel (approx. 12.000 m2) which lies in joint-ownership with another proprietor. It has an old water mill (registered, 120 m2) in complete need of renovation. The land parcel is quite wild and overgrown.
