Salão is the sunny side of the island Faial. It offers a comfortable micro climate, less humidity and is a great location for hikes, horse riding, swimming.
This country property is located just of the main road and has a nice terrace in front. The house has a stable inside which could be converted into more living space, a hobby space or for indoor activities. Its ceiling is 4.70 meter to the top in the center. It is a special house with a patio in the center of the building and thus excellent ventilation and natural light throughout.
Renovated with a reinforced concrete ring all around the top to strengthen the structure. In the stable area and around the house you will find large approx 60×60 cm hand carved flat lava tiles of at least 20 Kilos each that you can re-use in the house as flooring. The original house is approximately 200 years old and it has been renovated many times since. It needs a redo this time as well and thus the price has been lowered to reflect this future project. Most inner walls are still from wood and can be removed very quicly so you have a clean sheet to remodel the space. At some point in time this building served as the village school.
The back has a tree surrounded garden for planting vegetables as well as a good sized farm field with possibilities to keep horses or planting food. No carrying inner walls so you can easily adapt the layout to your needs. Kitchen has a very large wood fired oven that could hold a large pig. This house is ideal for converting into a guesthouse or activity center.
You can grow all the food you need and still have extra garden and grass land. We think it is a fantastic house for people who like to entertain guests or fancy farming. It just does not come more traditional like this.
