As always, only at Azores Properties. We are pleased to offer one of the last remaining grand houses in the city of Horta now available for sale. This is a house with 2 floors and 2 separate entrances. There is a wide staircase leading up to the second floor. In principle it is one house but the house has been divided into two fractions and thus can be used as two legally separate apartments. The house has a 160 m2 footprint for each floor (total 320 m2) and comes with a large attic. There is an additional 28 m2 covered area behind the house.
A third entrance leads to the space behind the house for bicycles or storage or a utilities area. The first floor has a huge kitchen. There are 3 bathrooms in the house.
The entire building used to be the office of the veterinary department of the local government and was converted into office space. Interior walls are drywall so one could change the layout easily. There is no garden space.
All windows have been changed into double glazing with no need to paint the aluminium frames.
This house would make a very nice guesthouse, or a serious grand family mansion or office.
Horta is one of the nicest towns on the Azores, strategically located in the Central group with 30 minutes access to the Island of Pico and a two hour Ferry to the Island of São Jorge. It is a popular destination for individual travelers who come to enjoy the countryside and hike the different routes on the islands. The city hosts around 1200 motor and sailing yachts a year who use Horta as their Transatlantic stopover. This makes Horta marina the busiest marina in between the mainland and the Caribbean .
