A unique opportunity to acquire a truly stunning organic farm in Central Portugal renowned for its outstanding natural beauty.
This property was once a working farm, nearly 100 years ago, and the old ruin the permanent residence of a small monastic community. What is left of the monastery now are only the exterior walls with a footprint of 373 m2. This building constitutes the urban title.
The property comprises also the rustic title with an area of 93,480 m2 and a large outbuilding for storage. This has unique and now almost rare features in the local landscape: there is a large area of native Portuguese forest with many ancient chestnut, holm and cork oak trees (now protected species), a brook flowing across the land and cascading into a charming pool, a very large fertile plot entirely suitable for organic farming, and secluded areas for complete privacy and relaxation.
The land was once farmed by a monastic community but has not been used since, with the exception of a small area near the bridge where the current owner had a vegetable garden almost 10 years ago. Organic certification fot this land should be easily granted as the soil is unlikely to show the presence of pollutants or agrochemicals not permitted by EU organic standards.
The property also has a borehole between the old ruin and the farm’s outbuilding. Mains electricity run nearby for easy connection to the grid, if so required.
Additionally, road access is excellent with a tarmacked road passing by the main gate.
The property is close to all amenities and within close proximity of the picturesque towns of Sertã, Pedrogão Grande and Pedrogão Pequeno. Some of the most stunning river beaches and nature trails of central Portugal are also nearby as well as the cities of Coimbra, Castelo Branco, Abrantes and Pombal less than 40 to 45 minutes away.
The property is also conveniently located only 2 hours away from Lisbon and 2 1/2 hours from Porto airports.
Viewing highly recommended.
