Real Estate Details
Wonderful Estate with a 1,5 Hectares area, and a 600 sqm covered area.
Located in Lucefecit riverbanks, in a valley that is still considered mysterious and sacred, around 1 km from Rocha da Mina, (a primitive sanctuary where the Portuguese worshipped Endovélico god), the Moinho da Fonte Santa Estate appears as small village, raised in the middle of surprising vegetation, where trees of great load are pointed out (being some of them hundred-year-old), such as ashes, olive trees, fig trees or cork oaks.
This architectural whole is composed by a water mill, 2 houses, one 'pavillion', a study, garage and small support constructions. At the time it was bought it was in ruins, the restoration finished in 2000.
The mill (first habitation house), is an XVIII th century construction, was restored respecting the architectural particularities and the construction techniques of that period and also of the region.
The original walls were consolidated and kept. The roof was remade with old tile. The ceiling, made of wood, is crossed by rafters. The floor is made of handmade tiles.
