Manor House in Alcantarilha 11 bedrooms, Silves, Alcantarilha e Pêra
Manor house in Alcantarilha built in the early 20th century by João Narciso D´Oliva. The building consists of 11 bedrooms, kitchen, living room, patio with patio and cistern, running balcony, terrace and several rooms. The building needs rehabilitation works and has enormous potential for the construction of a boutique hotel or a Loft. This building was classified as a Property of Municipal Interest and is exempt from the Municipal Property Tax.
This house, or built complex, acquires, due to its size and color, a great visibility in the urban agglomeration of the village, presenting two quadrangular bodies united, being the one on the west side of smaller dimensions in relation to the one located in front of the main façade of the church. It is exactly towards the entrance of the temple that the noble facade of this building is turned, thus demonstrating the social relevance of its owner.
Given the unevenness of the land, the building was built on two floors on the main elevation and on three on the rear elevation. The roofs are all four-tiered, and the facades topped off by cornices, while also observing the mass wedges simulating ashlar stonework. The building acquires an important prominence in the Alcantarilha landscape, either for its red color of iron oxide, or for the regular set of spans with ogival stonework frame that appear in all the facades. Inside, there are still visible mural paintings, also highlighting the central staircase leading to the upper floor with an elegant iron railing similar to that found outside.
