We’re proud to offer this unique private historical mansion with breath taking views towards the ocean and Horta city, on Faial island, Azores.
This mansion sits on a higher part of the city so your privacy will be total and you’ll enjoy a superb, perfectly unimpeded, 180º view. The property dates from the late 1700’s and was designed to be integrate harmoniously into its natural surroundings. So it is surrounded by gardens, agricultural spaces and orchards areas. It’s a perfect retreat from urban life. Its architecture is original due to its mixture of different architectonic aspects (mainland and Azorean styles). Its unique location gives you a privileged view over Horta city, its bay and Pico island.
Other buildings surround the main house, like a kitchen building and two very large water cisterns that you can transform. By the main building, there is also a very large pond/pool with fountain. There’s a registered living area of 494m2. Space won’t be a problem. The gardens are vast and well covered with large trees. You’ll always have a shady spot with unique views to enjoy in Faial’s hot summer. The property has a 5.247m2 surface.
With a long history, this mansion received a royal visit of portuguese King Charles in 1901. This private historical mansion has been abandoned for many years and is now in need of a full renovation. State incentives to help fund the reconstruction might be available. We can help you with that process.
The location is perfectly unique as you’ll be only 5 minutes from the lovely Almoxarife Beach and Horta city with its beautiful beaches, restaurants, culture venues as well as all the shops and services that you might need is also just 5 minutes away.
