A unique opportunity to purchase two country properties and renovate them to your own personal taste for a large country home or tourism business.

Set in a quiet country location with good access off the road from the Algarve to Lisbon and just 10 minutes’ drive to the traditional market town of São Bartolomeu de Messines with all amenities catered to. The properties are on a very large plot of 15 acres which has been inspected by authorities and could with a few additions gain a tourism license for a campsite and static homes.

Entering the main house from the large terrace are the lounge and separate dining room which both open out onto a large patio. The kitchen has a utility room and another large terrace ideal for a barbecue with wonderful views across the countryside. Also on this floor is a guest bedroom with en-suite shower room. Downstairs are the remaining bedrooms including the master which has two walk in wardrobes, an en-suite bathroom and a private covered terrace area leading to the natural gardens. The third bedroom has an en-suite shower room and the forth bedroom has a private terrace and use of a separate bathroom. There is a smaller room on this level which would be ideal as an office or fifth children's bedroom. By the entrance to the main house is a large water storage tank which could inexpensively be converted into a swimming pool.

The cottage consists of a living room, dining room, bedroom, kitchen, utility room and bathroom all on one level making this ideal for living quarters leaving the main villa for a B&B business. Outside the cottage is a lovely courtyard with barbecue and a covered cabana and a small water feature. To the rear of the cottage is a terrace already built to accommodate a plunge pool.

As well as the potential for a caravan site there is also a licence for a vineyard/winery so plenty of business potential or simply a chance to make a lovely home. Additional advantages are a small river running at the edge of the land as well as two working water wells.
