This gem of a property located on a frontline hillside in the sunniest part of Prazeres, a parish of Calheta, is waiting to be your dream lifestyle home. With 6.000 sq. m land, arranged over several terraces, complete privacy, breathtaking and definitive Atlantic views and still certified as organic land, It is all about Location!
With mature trees, including endemic laurisilva varieties, fruit trees – apple, pear, orange, loquat, plum, quince, chestnut – and greenhouses which could easily be recuperated, this property offers a retreat from the hustle and bustle, and the possibility to be self-sufficient.
The property has two irrigation water tanks and access to levada irrigation water.
The current accommodation comprises a charming three-bedroom house, which can be easily modernized to bring it up to contemporary levels of comfort. A pool can be added next to the house.
A new guest house of max. 200sq m can be built on one of the upper terraces, and the existing annexes the Santana house, wine cellar, exterior kitchen with barbeque, can also be modernized.
If the property is of interest for tourism investment purposes, rather than pure residential, the current PDM (local building regulations) allow you to build extra cottages or even a boutique hotel on the 6000sq m grounds.
Prazeres has a rural feel, whilst being easily accessible by the motorway from Funchal, boasts several good restaurants and some local shopping facilities. Calheta is just 7 minutes by car, where you will find a larger supermarket.
The western point of the island is close, as is the Paul da Serra for hiking. There are many walks in the local area.
Please enquire for further details, as this is a property which needs to be visited to sense the pure magic of the location.
