Located in the parish of Vila Franca de Xira, the village of Povos currently has an urban network confined between Rua Direita and the foothills of the Mount of the “Sr. da Boa Morte”.
Its foundation dates back to the end of the twelfth century, when the monarch D. Sancho I bequeathed him a charter, confirmed in 1218, by D. Afonso II. In 1510, D. Manuel would assign a new charter to the village, marked by the implantation of Pelourinho in front of the Chamber House.
Quinta do Pelourinho is located in the Pelourinho area, considered as a special protection zone (ZEP). It has a unique history in this county, since it was here implanted the Court in an initial phase and, a posteriori, the House of Camera with a beautiful architecture that transports us to times of old.
The Quinta do Pelourinho has a total area of 23.660m2 of land where 5 houses are implanted, the main house being the old House of Câmara, with a construction area of 260m2; the remaining 4 houses, which are in a state of degradation, have a total gross building area of 470m2. Inside the Quinta you will find magnificent gardens, statues in stone, a swimming pool and the tranquility that allows you to forget the rush of the day to day.
The potential buyer of this Quinta may have several business opportunities. The immediate opportunity will be to keep it as a leisure farm, inhabiting right from the main house and rehabilitate the other 4 houses living in a unique space with your family; but will also have the opportunity to develop a project of subdivision approved in 2011 by Vila Franca de Xira Town Hall (awaiting a whole process for issuance of permits), relating to 12 lots with a capacity of 13,675m2 of gross construction area referring to 106 fireplaces - T1, T2 and T3.
The location of this Quinta is a great advantage as it is located only 24kms from Lisbon, 3 minutes from the exit node of the A1 to Vila Franca de Xira, 1km from Vila Franca de Xira Hospital and 7 minutes from the Logistics Platform north of Lisbon (Castanheira do Ribatejo).
The City Council of Vila Franca de Xira, attentive and committed to the valorization of the area of its Municipality approved, in the budget for the year 2019, the requalification and landscape valorization of the Largo do Pelourinho and the zone of the fountain of Povos, within the ambit of the 2020 project.
