This is a lovely traditional Portuguese cottage for renovation. It is situated in the rolling hills, 10 minutes outside the historic town of Silves in Central Algarve and is in a quiet countryside location which offers a rural lifestyle. The Algarve Shopping Centre is 20 minutes away which has numerous international shops.

Built before 1951, is a stone cottage for renovation which requires finishing rebuilding work with new french doors in place together with walls and concrete floors. There is a substantial driveway with a south facing elevation and has a septic tank and 2 water reserve tanks totally 80,000 L capacity. It has electricity to the house together with a landline telephone. Part of the cottage is habitable. Land area of 5,990 sq. M. and a covered area of 149 sq.m. The property is surrounded by stone boundary walls. There is Orange, Lemon, Almond, Olive and Fig trees on the land.

The land has two sections. The bottom piece with the cottage on is flat and the top piece is elevated, has its own entrance, driveway, water tank and electricity pole and with wonderful south facing 180 degree views and is particularly spectacular at night showing the lights of Ghia.

This would make an idea project to someone wanting to relocate and rebuild a home to their own taste and has huge potential to be restored and modernised yet still remain in the idyllic and peaceful countryside.
