We’re please to offer this beautiful and very secluded offgrid house in the forest. It’s located in the parish of Flamengos, not far from Horta city, on Faial island, Azores.
This is a two storey building in need of a full renovation with a total constructed area of 127,34m2. That’s more than enough space to build comfortable home with lots of privacy. The building has very sturdy, thick stone walls and large windows. All roofs, doors and windows, as well as plumbing and electrics need renovation as the property has been standing abandoned for many years. There is currently no connection to the power or water grids, so you’ll have to rely on sustainable, offgrid systems. Solar panels with batteries as well as a rain water collection system with filters will suit your needs.
Outside there’s a 1146m2 plot of land, in a gentle slope, where you’ll find some trees but there’s space to create your own very private garden in the middle of the Azorean nature.
The house sits by the road that leads to the mountain top of Faial island and there scarcely any other houses around. Construction is very limited in this area, so your privacy is assured. There’s a partial view of the ocean to the south and over the surrounding forest and pastures. The area is almost exclusively agricultural and forest land, offering you the ultimate luxury of absolute peace and quiet in a beautiful natural environment.
The property sits on Flamengos parish and overlooks Flamengo’s valley. Horta city, with all the shops and services you might need is just 10 minutes down the road. The beautiful Caldeira mountain and many lovely walking trails are just up the road.
If you are looking for an unique refuge, perfect for a sustainable life-style, surrounded by nature, this secluded offgrid house in the forest on Faial island is perfect for you. Contact us for a visit!
