Farm for Sale in Casal Maio, Castelo Branco
In this spectacular 1.6ha farm in Sertã municipality, there was a stone ruin that was totally restored with top quality materials and expanded with a new building with a new traditional construction design, where the rough and the modern were combined in order to produce a building that blends in almost invisibly with the surrounding landscape. With a building area of about 700 m2 spread over 3 floors, a good dining room, several living rooms, a large fitted kitchen and a spacious pantry, a children's room, an atelier for artistic leisure, 8 bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, plus two private bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, an office and a technical area where central heating and cooling equipment use renewable energy, this building, which was built with thermal insulation on roofs and walls, and double glazing in PVC thermal cut window frames, is being used with great success as local accommodation with a very high occupancy rate throughout the year. The land has various reservoirs containing water pumped from an existing spring and the deal will be including some furniture and decor, with the exception of specific personal items which will be retained by the proprietors.
Located a mere 10 minutes from the villages of Sertã and Cernache do Bonjardim, about 45 minutes from the cities of Coimbra, Tomar, Pombal and Castelo Branco and just over 2 hours from the great metropolises of Lisbon and Porto, in a region of lush landscapes where streams and rain beaches abound, this farm can be the ideal place for someone wanting to simultaneously live at and engage in an eco-tourism project, away from the hustle and bustle of big cities and in a region increasingly sought after by domestic and foreign tourists.
