Excellent opportunity to own a piece of Madeiran history!
This property has superb potential for a dream lifestyle residence, as well as a boutique hotel.
This historical property has a wonderful, serene, yet central location and is suitable for a complete refurbishment rebuild, restoring the exterior façade and yet fusing this with high quality modern architecture within, whilst still enjoying a large and mature garden . It is located in Santa Luzia, height approx. 190m above sea level, with centennial trees and very private. This position offers the perfect climate – warm in winter yet a slight breeze in the hot summer months. It is only 5 minutes by car from central Funchal.
The property is a registered Quinta, but is not a protected building. This means, that for any planning applications for existing building extensions or new build works, the Quintas Madeirenses planning guidelines on the Funchal Planning Directory (PDM) must be followed.
Any project needs to respect the cultural heritage of the property, the implantation & main structure of the manor house, with new buildings concentrated in such a way as to not detract from it.
The current terraced garden adapts perfectly to this. There is ample area for existing building extension as well as extra garage spaces and swimming pool.
In addition to the construction area of the Quinta itself, there is significant additional building capacity.
Any carefully designed project for development as a boutique hotel, or other, needs to be approved by the Town Hall. The maximum height of construction is defined as the roof level of the existing manor house, 9 m maximum, which means an extra floor can be added to the same height as the reception rooms so that the roof is all on one level.
Please enquire for further details.
