Half-way between Lisbon and Évora lies the city of Montemor-O-Novo. A short drive away from Montemor we find this beautiful Alentejo-Style property that is ideally suited for anyone looking for an equestrian farm.
The property consists of 46 hectares of gorgeous traditional Montado, this is, a landscape covered with mature oak trees and pasture, ideally suited for the grazing of horses or other farm animals. The oak trees also provide acorns which can be used to feed pigs, especially the much prized black pig variety (porco preto). The property is fenced.
These oak trees also provide a regular income through the sale of cork; approximately 120 Tons of cork were harvested last season.
The land is extraordinarily rich in water and the property is autonomous in its water supply. Mains electricity on the grounds.
This property features an indoor riding arena; the building which integrates the riding areas has a total area of 40 x 16 meters; the arena itself measures ca. 13 x 20 meters. A few meters further south lies an outdoor riding arena measuring 27 by 50 meters.
A total of 22 individual stables are located close to the arenas. Several small warehouses, washing areas (covered and open air) and a saddling room provide support for all the activities surrounding the stables.
The main residence has a total covered area of ca. 286 square meters and is built in the traditional Alentejo style. The residence features 4 bedrooms of which 2 are ensuite, plus a kitchen, living room and 3 bathrooms. A long terrace runs along the western facade.
A second residence located on the same property features 2 bedrooms (1 ensuite), 2 bathrooms and 1 open space kitchen.
A few meters away is a large warehouse ideal for storing vehicles or other equipment.
The property was rebuilt in the years between 2001 and 2004 and would benefit from some renovations.
This is a great opportunity to acquire a large traditional Alentejo estate, located only a short drive from Lisbon (45min) and the Atlantic coast (1 hour) away.
