A NEW LIFE IN THE COUNTRYSIDE Opportunity to begin a new life project in the surrounds of nature on a unique property, less than an hour from Lisbon, with 5 hectares of land which are totally fenced, which comprises a house, a winery, a covered patio and a swimming pool. This traditional house was constructed in 1910 and was completely restored in 2001 keeping its original characteristics in its lines and the selection of materials. At the rear of the house is the swimming pool, the garden and the covered patio with a wood burning barbecue and oven in complete privacy and with great solar orientation. The diesel oil central heating has been prepared for being adapted to the use of solar energy. The winery, which is 310 sqm in area, comprises 2 parts: that to the north has 2 traditional presses which are ideal for revitalizing the old wine making methods of the ‘quinta’. Also in this part, but separate, is the sequencial conservation area with 5 large concrete tanks which are also good for use. The southern part has a large space, which is very rustic and could be used as a space for events, wine tastings or social gatherings and there is also an office and a bathroom. Currently the wine production comes from a strong plantation of around 3.5 hectares with grape varieties which are traditional to the region, both white and red, which are suitable for ‘DOP Tejo’ production. The property also has olive groves, almond trees, walnut trees, umbrella pines, table grape vines, pear trees, apple trees, plum trees, loquat trees, quince trees, pomegranite trees, cork oaks and fig trees. With land of calcareous clay which is very productive on a slight slope making it easy for water collection, this property has all the important characteristics to begin a project of organic production wine tourism.
