The property is located in the heart of Santo Estevão - Benavente, a beautiful small village that sits next to the margins of Tejo River.
Just within a one hour distance from Lisbon, this beautiful property captures the best of all the generations that have passed through it and draws us with a charisma of its own.
The land has a total surface of 1,4 hectares, with a total built area of 1.033 sqm. The manor house has, in its main building, a total built area of 591 sqm. On the ground floor the area is 422 sqm and on the first floor the area is 169 sqm. The house has five large bedrooms and several living areas capable of housing large groups. It's ideal for family vacations and/or friend gatherings.
Can you picture a Spring afternoon, sitting inside the conservatory, drinking a cup of tea, a book by your side while soaking in the Sun in the first days with no clouds?
How about taking all your friends to an old stable converted into a large living room where you can hold a banquet?
And if you're a horse enthusiast, the main structures of the stable where left intact so it can revert back to it's original purpose, so you can enjoy a morning horse ride while watching the storks building their nests or refreshing yourself by the river banks.
The magnificent kitchen is perfect for a non stopping flow of delicious local dishes to flow through the course of the day. And If the day calls for a stroll outside, rather then relaxing by the two fireplaces existent in both living rooms of the manor, the surrounding area is well fitted with numerous olive trees, providing shade, and a small lake populated by ducks, who will surely be the delight of the younger ones, and help them get a true bond with Nature, while listening to the birds that soar through.
Santo Estevão sits on the margin of Tejo River, less than an hour away from Lisbon.
It is a village from Ribatejo with little over a thousand people, organized around a main street that has a church dedicated to the first christian martyr as a focal point.
The trip to the village is done by a very quiet road.
As you travel, you can see on both sides of the roads a landscape that is ever changing between farms, pastures, irrigated land, eucalyptus, sandy areas where big pines rise from the ground and vast area of adult cork trees.
In the surroundings of Santo Estevãos's creek ( known as Almansor, one of the affluents of Rio Tejo), the trees give place to beautiful rice fields. During fall and winter, with the rising waters, all the fields get flooded. It is there that the storks that nest on the light and electric polls feed. Seen from above, the area looks like an enormous green stain.
In the middle of all that green landscape, there is a rich wildlife.
The Santo Huberto Equipage is the only Iberian Peninsula fox hunting association, although in the UK there are almost 400. It was founded 60 years ago by Moniz Galvão and a group of enthusiasts that baptized it with the name of a hunting patron saint. In Portugal, horseback fox hunting is based of very recent traditions.
In Santo Estevão area there as of today two golf infrastructures, one is a 18-hole golf court (Vila Nova de Santo Estevão) and the other one are two 18-hole fields (Ribagolfe).
