Facing on to the beautiful River Arade with gorgeous views, this large fishing cottage requiring renovation is perfect for a visionary with an investment perspective
With a serene location a few metres from the mouth of the River Arade and with River view and City vista this structure is all things Algarve…..
The splendid ‘Azulejos’ tiles so renowned in Portugal are prevalent as the building is adorned top to bottom with them! The building simply could not be closer to where the fisherman bring their catch, and where the admired restaurants grill outside. For a sublime fishing village experience it's impossible to beat.
The back side of the property houses the front door and is incorporated within a winding, cobblestone alley providing a secondary aspect.
The building is a project and needs a complete overhaul, and as such offers something of a blank canvas for those with an eye for design.
With an official typography of 7 bedrooms, there are 3 fractions consisting of the main space with 4 bedrooms, with the kitchen area leading into what would have been used as an outdoor laundry in yesteryear - but in modern times would function well as an outdoor breakfast spot. From here there is a stone staircase with access to the rooftop terrace with unbelievable views.
The staircase also leads downstairs to the 2 individual apartments. One of which is a T0, or studio. and the other a modest 2 bedroom apartment. These are at street level and open on to a small outdoor terrace perfect for watching the boats come in.
There were initial overtures to turn this into a Youth Hostel to utilise the number of rooms but this will be up to the Investor to submit.
The charming fishing village of Ferragudo is a true Algarvian delight. Located at the mouth of the Arade River, relaxing at one of the renowned fish restaurants watching the days catch delivered to the door of the eaterie fresh off the boat and grilled before your eyes is a rich pleasure indeed.
