Quinta with House for Development, Off-grid
An opportunity to purchase a small house of granite in a priviliged location. The house sits at the highest point of the Quinta and enjoys stunning uninterrupted views. The house is very private and tranquil yet only a 5 minute drive from the popular village of Póvoa de Midões where you will find local bars, shops and cafés. Access to the village is also available as a short walk by foot. The house is only 10 minutes from the larger town of Tábua where you will find all ameneties, 1 hour from Coimbra and 2 hours from Porto airport.
The building is constructed of large granite stone, traditional in the area, with the addition of a concrete and tiled roof. Currently, there is one room on each of two floors linked by a spiral staircase. Each floor currently has independent access. The house benefits from the installation of a 24v, 2kw solar system, only 1 year old with south facing panels. There is an abundance of water on the land from 2 water mines, a pond, and also a large diameter well, which ensures water all year round. Water provides plentiful irrigation and can easily be pumped to the house for domestic use, off-grid living can therefore be achieved relatively easily.
The house itself sits on an urban plot with existing habitation and pending consultation with the local council can expand within the original footprint of a total area of 156 mt2 (over two floors). This should be ckecked with the local authorities. The property – with the addition of a small kitchenette and bathroom downstairs – could provide a fabulous detached house with envious views.
The land has many cork oaks, medronhas and oaks. The surrounding land is mostly cork oaks and medronhas and pine. There are 26 olive trees (2021 produced 28 liters of oil), a mature walnut tree, a large orange tree, 3 fig trees and several small fruit trees along with open flat terraces.
Overall, the land and property provide an opportunity to enhance and deliver a lifestyle in a priviliged location with wonderful views
