Description

This unique property is built on five levels and situated in the valley of the Ribeira Grande, a small winding river that feeds into the Odeceixe estuary.  The natural setting of the house is cork oak forest, citrus, pomegranate and soft fruit trees, landscaped gardens, undulating terraces and a river rich with wildlife.  Many large picture windows flood the property with natural light, giving stunning views of Foia Mountain, the highest point in the Algarve. The wood floors give a contemporary yet warm appeal.
All five bedrooms have independent external doors to exterior decking and terrace areas that surround the house.  The three bathrooms are finished to a high standard. The living areas are spacious, with lounge, dining, relaxing, study and recreation rooms etc. Plus there are ample possibilities to create extra bedrooms or a separate annex.  The property was designed to be two separate dwellings if desired with a second kitchen plumbed ready for use.  There is a huge open plan indoor space which would be perfect for yoga or similar activities along with a large flat outdoor lawn area for the same.  A natural glade in the woodlands by the river frontage provides a perfect shady outdoor space with natural energy for yoga or tai-chi.  There is a large well-fitted modern kitchen and breakfast area, utility rooms, separate garage, workshop and car port.
Subject to planning, this property could be built up to 2000m2.

The property is secluded, but easily reached from Monchique or the West coast in about 25 minutes of a beautiful drive either way and is just a few minutes away from a hamlet with café/bar etc. And nearby, only about 8kms away is a well-being and yoga retreat.  The area is served by regular small shuttle buses to and from Monchique, where you will find schools and a growing international community of people seeking the unique life-style that this relatively undiscovered area provides.
Casa Ribeira Grande would make a wonderful family home, or could equally be subdivided for two families or tourism.  Its unique natural location would make it perfect for any kind of retreat or rural tourism such as well-being, camping or ecological field station.  Alternatively it could be a perfect smallholding producing soft-fruit, citrus, cork or even Medronho – a local liqueur from the strawberry bushes that surround the property. It really must be seen!
