Sao Mamede National Park - Portugal
17acre (6.3Ha) Off-Grid (2kw) gravity spring feed organic Farm
South facing, nestled between forest trails, Cork oaks, Strawberry trees, Pine and Chestnut - the property is 10 minutes drive from Portalegre city, yet completely private/isolated in peace.
Purchased in 2012 - ecologically and self-sustaining re-designed.
Simple. Strong. Repairable.
From Soft fruits to Nuts, to every bush, vine, tree, and herb we could think of, multiple varieties, it's here. Collectively well over 200, plus over 100 solid mature Olive trees producing 200+ liters of first-class oil.
Built in the year 1900, approx, all walls are straight( I was a carpenter) and all but one roof has been completely rebuilt.
The two semi-detached cottages have a connecting doorway to make one large cottage. Upper cottage restored with log burner in the central room, two bedrooms. One containing the Original fully operative bread oven, it's massive.
Lower Cottage is a dry untouched original canvas. Rooms for bathroom, kitchen, main room with open fireplace and a large room above the animal barn. (Please note they are not wired for electricity)
Garage, metal doors with benched out workshop.
Small adjoining tractor barn, used also for timber storage.
Tractor included in the sale with detaching tools, also Stihl Strimmer and Chainsaw.
Other barns and storage buildings have been converted into two rooms, both have new log burners, one with a kitchen, etc.
Separating both is a log fired Sauna which works perfectly, used daily.
Two animal styes for chicken, goat, pig, etc. Plus small chick room.
Two water Tanks - 3 x 4 meters and 10 x 3.4 meters. Both are capable of watering the garden. Three Springs, at the highest point of the property, collectively supply the tanks. They run all year and every year.
Two Cabanas (small utility buildings)
One has a double 'drop-pit compost toilet' with an adjoining shower room - this room is empty.
Other Cabana, houses the water tank and filtering barrels for connecting to the main house and shower room - note! - Not connected!
Tunnel greenhouse 10 x 3m.
Two seasonal streams( dry Aug & Sept) cross the property.
Many Wild Edibles.
Large threshing circle and numerous chill areas to be completely alone. Southside has a natural hollow for a potential Tilapia pond.
The protected Nature Park is saturated with wildlife, flora and fauna, streams and ponds.
This is the last property heading towards the summit and there are no other human inhabitants north.
Streams and spring water are pure.
Essentially no light pollution - Milky Way visible most clear nights - stunning!
