The property “Quinta do Relógio” (in English "Manor of the Clock"), named after the clock-tower which tops the gardens, was built in 1860 under the direction of the architect Cinatti de Siena, who become responsible for the clear Italian influence visible in its structure.
The property was a residence of His Royal Highness, King Ferdinand II of Portugal and currently belongs to the descendants of his Royal Highness King John the I and Philippa of Lancaster, Queen of Portugal and daughter of John of Gaunt, 2nd Duke of Lancaster, son of Edward III, King of England.
The Palace, the main building of the property, presents a markedly Neoclassical atmosphere seen in the sumptuous ornamentation of the building, with 26 ft high ceilings, and surrounded by important vegetation, standing out several rare species, by their size and antiquity, all these growing for some hundred years and confronting directly the sea.
The property is facing directly the South, over the River Tagus and the Atlantic Ocean, and comprehends a Palace, a 65ft high Tower with a Clock, and several accessory constructions, with a total of about 40 rooms. It includes several gardens, courtyards, and terraces facing the sea.
It has several garages, stables, a house for the staff, an independent flat, depots, and a zone for vehicle parking.
The property has a rectangular format and an area of about 64,583 sq ft (6000m2), with a covered/constructed area of 17,222 sq ft (1600m2). It has 3 entrance gates with the possibility of having a fourth one onto another street.
The overall condition of the property is good, although some areas might require maintenance.
It's located only 20 minutes from Lisbon's downtown, and 25 minutes from Lisbon's International airport.
This property is tax-exempt (Historical building)
It's possible to increase the covered area to a total of 36941 sq ft (3432m2)
