Algarve, Tavira, Santa Catarina da Fonte do Bispo
A delightful country cottage that has been totally refurbished and modernized, it has its own energy production systems and a permaculture project and is located in a very quiet but not secluded area near a seasonal river.
Access to the farmhouse is via a short dirt road to a little hamlet of properties where this house is the pen-ultimate in this very private and beautiful location.
The detached house has 4 bedrooms and two newly appointed bathrooms, a purpose built made to measure kitchen that has been equipped with state-of-the-art appliances and is open plan to a good sized living room with wood burner, a large entrance lobby and another spare room. There are several terraces around, one of which has a pizza oven and Bar B. Q. In the garden, which has been developed in the rear part of the property is a lovely swimming pool that is heated by solar panels.
Energy to the quinta is provided via photovoltaic panels and a power plant of batteries and a 3 phase mains supply. The hot water system employs solar panels (which can also be heated by the gas boiler on those few days without sun) thus making the property quite independent and autonomous for the most part. The heating of the house is provided by a central radiator system
The permaculture project was developed to help organize and plant an immense number of fruit trees and monetize existing native trees such as carob, almond and olive. All this project is on a fully functioning irrigation system. The large plot land, almost 1 hectare, is considered good quality for agricultural production.
In addition to the farmhouse there is a 60 m2 annex that would be excellent for use as an office, workshop, storage area, another garage or even putting a few friends up in.
This naturally beautiful area is quiet and safe, the proximity to the river and the mountains make the surroundings a wonderful place to observe and explore nature from, and it is only a few kilometres from Santa Catarina da Fonte do Bispo where there are a few shops and restaurants - enough for your daily needs.
