The house and the propertyThe house, historical and secluded on the highest point of the magnificent surrounding property, with an area of about 30,000.00 m2 (7.41 acres) and fully restored in 2000, is located on the route of the ancient and famous Caminho do Infante, between Lagos and Vila do Bispo.It consists of three bedrooms (two of them en-suite), two reception rooms, kitchen, utility rooms, plus a self-contained one-bedroom apartment (with one bedroom, small living room, kitchenette, and WC).The curtilage of the property is resplendent with green spaces, and the iconic fortified tower in the garden marks the mid-point between Lagos and the village of Vila do Bispo. The property is also endowed with gardens, two lakes, a small pool with deck area, pergola, as well as area reserved for cattle, stabling for horses, henneries, garden area, some reserved leisure courtyards as well as the housekeeper´s house ( 40.00 m2). There is also functional renovated woo-burning oven and barbecue area,It has the advantage of having both mains water and a private borehole, plus, an energy microgeneration system/solar panels.THE PROPERTY IS READY FOR IMMEDIATE OCCUPATION.Environment and surroundingsEnjoy extensive parks, small lakes, courtyards, hunting grounds and trees - pines and cypress, almond and fig trees.The magnificent atmosphere, calm, exclusive and historical, with "tales" to tell; very difficult to find in this increasingly sought after tourist area.Just five minutes from the seaside, 10 km from the city of Lagos and access to all services, facilities, and amenities hospitals schools, supermarkets, restaurants, public services.Historical, cultural and aesthetic value"A piece of Portuguese Templar History".Doors to the past and history, culture and art, function and aesthetics, house and property form an absolutely unique and differentiated space.The fortified watchtower, completely reconstructed up to four meters, marks the exact midpoint between Vila do Bispo and Lagos, and the house is located next to the Caminho do Infante, named after the Infante Dom Henrique (Henrique of Sagres), who must have gone there many times.A repeated inscription on the pre-existing original clay slabs - mark in the shape of a six-petalled flower inscribed in the circle - reveals a clear Rosicrucian link. Saved in the reconstruction, some of the slabs were replaced, constituting today the central carpet of the entrance and lower part of the greater room.In the entrance hall, very close to this ground, is the facade of the tombstone of Gualdim Pais, Master of the Order of the Templars, demonstrating that the symbol inscribed on the floor slabs is the same as that found on this tombstone. Proving the permanent proximity and complicity between the Templars of the area of Tomar and those who with the Infant from there left and came to the western Algarve where they were hosted.The motherhouse of the Mount is also facing east, in the best Templar tradition. In the thick stone walls, some in elaborate masonry, marks, templar and Rosicrucian symbols, signs of an apparently communitarian and eighteenth-century past. Manueline tradition, characteristics respected in the last restoration, vestiges underlined in some masonry.The Mount was therefore certainly templar floor. And the symbols were passed naively from generation to generation on the distinctive marks of local potters with a weight of origin, without knowing it, now almost a thousand years old.Investment potential for profitabilityThe property also has a high investment potential for business, namely for the creation of a boutique hotel, rural tourism project, campsite, bed and breakfast accommodation, among others.Ref:VH0092PTM.
