Quinta with extensive grounds
Quinta São Gonçalo, an old agricultural property lying near the clifftop in the parish of Sao Gonçalo, dates from 1853. The house was restored in 1999 and converted into a traditional Madeiran manor house which currently functions as a small guesthouse with 5 bedrooms. It is a haven of peace and quiet with the extensive landscaped gardens, tropical fruit trees and spectacular views over the harbour of Funchal. The house could equally be enjoyed as a private family residence.
The value of this property lies in its unique location on the cliff-edge overlooking the harbour of Funchal. The extensive grounds span 4,000m2 and the property can both support in planning terms either further development (new build) or extensions to the existing property to become a larger hotel or clinic, as well as to be separated into smaller plots for independent construction.
It has access to levada (irrigation) water and has its own spring water. Part of the land is currently agricultural land with fruits and vegetables.
Quinta São Gonçalo is located in east Funchal, 100 metres above sea level, offering the warmest and sunniest climate in Funchal. It is close enough to walk to the city centre.
The 440 sq.m floor area of the manor house composes the following rooms:
Ground floor; hall, living room, dining room, kitchen (hotel), office, games and TV room, guest wc, laundry, multipurpose room.
Top floor: 1 junior suite with 12 sq.m balcony & 3 ensuite bedrooms all with views to the ocean,
the Bay of Funchal, and the gardens; 1 ensuite bedroom with a view of typical banana trees.
The grounds also house further outbuildings which serve as maid's quarters and storage rooms as well as an 800m3 water tank for irrigation water.
There is a closed garage as well as extensive opening parking space.
The property has one automatic entrance gate and two further manual entrances.
