Coimbra, Miranda do Corvo
Quinta de São Miguel is a 19th century farm sited in a very private location on the edge of a hamlet close to Miranda do Corvo. The farmhouse is now in ruins with some of the original walls still in-situ, including the wrought-iron double gates and courtyard wall. These gates lead to a courtyard that was overlooked by the farmhouse and old stone barn. The courtyard has a well and there is also a water mine close to the entrance that used to supply water.
Access to the property is via a country lane that passes the gated entrance and on to the woods. There is a stream to the front of the property that belongs to the neighbours, which you can still hear from the farmhouse. This stream used to provide the power for a nearby mill further into the forest.
The land with the farm is in need of clearing, which will be done soon and should expose some Olive and Pine trees. The land measures approximately 2357m2 which would suit a kitchen garden with plenty space for a swimming pool. The new owner has the option of restoring part of the old structure or demolishing the existing walls, the stone of which could be used in the new build structure. Planning permission would be granted to build a new property or to renovate the existing structures.
This is a property in a wonderful location ensuring privacy yet only 10 minutes from a large market town. Mains electric is at the property and mains water can be brought in from the nearby road approximately 80 metres away.
The Quinta is 10 minutes to the large town of Miranda do Corvo and all amenities, 10 minutes to the A13 motorway and 25 minutes to the university city of Coimbra.
