Ribeira Pereira is a southeast-facing sunny property with ideal conditions for self-sufficient living: quiet and private location with beautiful views, ready-to-move-in natural stone building, well kept agricultural terraces with lots of fruit trees and own water.
The property has a priviliged location in only 7 walking minutes to the lovely village of Graça with basic amenities, small shops and pleasant cafés.
The whole property is in well kept condition and is ready to be cultivated. The fruit trees produce a good harvest of mainly apples, pears and olives, but also figs, oranges and lemons.
Because of the natural partition, the property also lends itself perfectly as pasture for livestock farming, such as goats or sheep.
Two wells and a little stream take care of the irrigation.
The terraces are even and flat, easy to work, even by a small tractor or other agricultural machinery.
The house, which is situated on the highest point of the property, overlooks the beautiful, fertile valley with the perennial Ribeira Pereira, gently meandering along the bottom of the property.
It is registered with 100,15m2 on two levels and was completely renovated in 2016 by the current owners.
