Happy Wednesday! A beautiful 7-bedroom Portuguese manor house circa 1937! Set on ten acres with olive trees, fruit trees, and a well.
This house is beautiful, with so much potential! Set on ten acres of land with its own source of water, you could turn this into a nearly self-sustainable property – just add some solar panels for power! Architecturally, the house is lovely – the Art Nouveau windows and doors! – and I still think Portuguese kitchens are my favorite, always massive and airy!
From the listing on Century 21:
Quinta da Cortiça is a property set in 4 hectares of land and where the manor house has been restored keeping its original features.
It consists of ground floor with a large kitchen (with floating floor) which gives access to a large terrace with panoramic views of the farmhouse, a living room, bathroom and 5 bedrooms. On the first floor there is a bathroom and 5 bedrooms, one with private bathroom. Stairs and wood to the roof which is currently rough but can be converted into more living space.
There are also several cellars and storage in the basement, as well as a large shed at the rear of the property. All divisions benefit from very high and large ceilings. The house benefits from plenty of light and it is important to mention the wooden details and the hand-painted marble tiles.
There is plenty of water on the property, a large well that never dries, a water mine, 2 water tanks, one about 30 meters deep. On the property there are many fruit trees, olive trees, several oaks as well as cultivated areas.
The property is located between São Martinho da Cortiça and Mucelão, municipality of Arganil. In São Martinho da Cortiça all basic services can be found, as well as a large dam, internationally recognized for its excellent fishing conditions. It has great access and stunning views! It is a dream property and combines perfect conditions for a Rural Tourism project.
