plot with ruin to be rebuilt in Sao Marcos da Serra
ruin with land for sale Sao Marcos da Serrra

Ruin with flat land in rural area near São Marcos da Serra

This plot with ruin to be rebuilt is located in a peaceful area in the countryside, just a few kilometers from the village. The covered area measures 120 m2, but there is an urban area of 2.080 m2, so it is very well possible to make a project for a much larger house.

The plot of land is flat and surrounded by green bushes and trees. It measures in total 5.760 m2.  There is a fresh water supply coming from the mountain in the back, but there should be a well or a borehole made for water to be used in the house. Electricity is very near to the house, so it should be no problem to connect to the electricity grid. 

All necessary documents are in place.

Price: €58.000
