Formerly a popular riding centre, this property has huge potential to develop into private equestrian property, riding school or livery yard. It comes with a typical 4 bedroom house covering 2 floors - the top floor has a separate entrance and would lend itself to a self-contained apartment.
A nice private gated driveway brings you into a paved parking area, the main house is located in the centre of a good size plot of 14,660m2. To the side of the house is a BBQ house and outdoor kitchen area, very typical for this type of property. To the front is a covered terrace which overlooks the main arena and countryside views. The ground floor has 2 good-sized double bedrooms one en-suite, laundry room, family bathroom, country kitchen and open plan lounge, dining area with patio doors to the terrace.
The first floor can be accessed from the main house via an internal staircase but it also has a separate entrance. There are two spacious double bedrooms, family bathroom and lounge area. This potentially could be divided off to create self-contained accommodation.
Equestrian facilities are extensive with 2 blocks of 6 stables, 12 personal lockers, 7 stand-alone Baias, outdoor stables, workshop, office, tack and feed rooms, covered barns, fenced paddocks, indoor riding arena 30 x 15 metre and large outdoor sand arena 50 x 80 metre with spectator seating.
A separate spacious garage and public bathroom offer potential for further accommodation. There is an option to buy further neighbouring land.
Being located close to amenities and having good road access this property has potential for a riding school, a popular and growing equestrian business in the area.

Loulé sits 12 km from the coastline of the 'Golden Triangle', an area which encompasses the luxury resorts of Vale do Lobo and Quinta do Lago.
The centre of the town is steeped in history. Its thirteenth century castle is built on an area previously settled by the Romans and its main church, Igreja Matriz de S.Clemente, was built on the site of an ancient mosque and also dates back to the thirteenth century. Loulé market hall (Mercado Municipal) is a striking landmark and an excellent example of classic Moorish architecture. It re-opened in early 2007 after a long period of renovation. Browse the town’s cobbled streets and you will see how Loulé has gained a reputation as the craft capital of the Algarve. Local handicrafts include ceramics, copperware, leatherwear, embroidered linen and tableware, quilts and lace, many of which can be purchased at the colourful Saturday gypsy market.
