Imagine this, owning your very own historic windmill in Portugal and stone grinding flour for all the local bakers in the area. Well with a little imagination and get up and go, you could own a traditional, boutique mill operation and enjoy a wonderfull lifestyle in this stunning part of the world.
This unique restored windmill for sale in Portugal is in a beautifull area. The mill needs only sails and some minor wooden beams to be fully funtional again. The property comes with lots of land and an old farmhouse for restoration. The building permit has expired but all the relevant paper work and drawings are in the Camara Odemira (town hall building dept.) all ready for revival. For sale at only 179,000. euros. The terraced land is approx 3000sqm and partly prepared for the house-construction.
The stunning 360 ° panoramic views from the plot are south to Monchique, on the east to Beja, or north to Satubal. Lying at the foot of the plains, you can see the lights twinkle at night in different cities, you can also see, with binoculars, the Atlantic Ocean on the horizon. The view encompasses cork trees, eucalyptus forests, olive groves, orange and lemon trees, and old farms. Some mornings at the mill if there is a deep fog this puts a white bed over the entire area, it feels like you are on a small island sitting in the middle of cloud 9 other surrounding high hilltops appear like a lot of little islands. This surreal, almost kitschy, is a beautifull sight alone and is worth the purchase price and kept the current owners far from selling. This is the highest windmill between Lisbon and the Algarve.
