Full description: This lovely quinta is located on the slopes of the Serra da Estrela mountains above a small village which lies a few km west of Seia.

The land has an area of 5000m2 which has quite a strange shape and comprises of both fertile agricultural grassy fields and forested land.

The part of the house with roof is approximately 20m2 and adjoining that is an old animal sheds of which the walls are in a good state but it has no roof. This space is about 10m2.

On the opposite side of the house on the sunny south side, is a large "eira" (thrashing floor) which would make a magnificent outdoor terrace with a solid granite base already in place.

The wooden floor and roof beams in the house are old but not rotten and the stonework in good condition.

Directly behind the building is a stretch of land with a granite base which is relatively flat and the ideal side on which to extend should one be thinking in those terms.

The house is not registered on the paperwork but this can still easily be done, initially the house can only be registered as a storage house and not a habitation house.

This means that you may restore it with natural materials and live in it, but if one wants to rebuild and extend it radically and have it registered as a habitation house, you will have to seek an architect to draw up a plan which has to be approved by the Council and the structure built by a certified builder.

Besides breathtaking views down over the valley which reaches up to the Caramulo mountains, the location enjoys a definite micro-climate as it lies in a semi circle type bowl behind which is a forest higher up.

Water is abundant and provided by 2 big watermines higher up with water rights on specific days. However there are no neighbours so no one else is using the water thus effectively there are no restrictions.

The only thing which might not appeal to some people is the fact that although the property is 500m from the village, the farm track to get there is 2km and you have to go through a rough patch.

The property is very near to a fantastic pristine river beach along the river Alva and also close to the skiing resort on the Serra da Estrela.
