Here we have a typical Portuguese style single floor property, T3/T4, but this one has many surprises some hidden and some obvious even when you approach the property.
Situated at the edge of a very popular and conveniently located village with many original schist (stone) properties and plenty of surrounding farmland This property sits on over 5000m2 of flat grassed garden, with olive and cork trees and a more formal garden to the front and side with well established shrubs and flowers. To the right of the property and about 50 metres away, is an original 4 bedroomed schist ruin, ripe for restoration/rebuilding and included in the sale, with its own road frontage.
Entering one of the main doors you are immediately struck by the size and light of the lounge area, complete with recently fitted large log burner and featured beautiful Portuguese tiles up tp 1metre high on the main walls; to the immediate left is a fully fitted modern wooden kitchen and adjacent to that is a large double bedroom.
From the main room you enter a large dining room, with space for an 8-10 seater table and chairs as well as accompanying furniture, this room also has a separate outside entrance. Next to the dining area are two further bedrooms, one double and one single but both of a generous size for a Portuguese house.From the dining area is a wooden, open plan staircase, leading to a massive 4th bedroom, into the roof space which to date hasnt been developed except for insulation in the roof, but would lend itself into becoming a master suite, complete with ensuite bathroom at some time in the future.
Passing through the dining area, towards the rear of the property you will find the bathroom, a further store/utility room and a second kitchen area....very traditionally Portuguese, originally fitted with a fireplace but this could easily be remodelled as either a secondary summer kitchen or the main kitchen of the house. Moving outside and into the rear alpendre, you find numerous useful rooms, which could be converted into living spaces for summer season rentals with separate access to the main house. There is a further large upper room reached from the alpendre on the first floor, which could be converted into a large bedroom with ensuite.
Also at the rear of the house can be found storage areas for garden equipment and for logs. There is a garage and driveway at the side of the property,
As stated at the beginning, there is a very large, fenced and flat garden area surrounding the property, easily maintained as it is laid to grass and trees but offering scope for plenty of horticultural ideas, complete with a corn circle/patio in the top corner with block built garden store area, bit enough for a ride on mower and all machinery for the garden. In addition, just beyond the fence at the rear of the property is a further area of land, so totalling around 14,700m2 of land with the property.
So a house with plenty of space, an excellent flat garden area, plenty of additional land AND a schist ruin ripe for restoration (with drawings of the proposed project) all in a desirable village AND at an excellent price.
