And now for something completely different! Casa Antiga is an old house with an annex that was previously a watermill which was bought by the present owners and restored around 30 years ago. This is a charming stone house, around 95.5m2 built in a valley in the forest, with one of the boundaries being the small river that used to power the watermill. The house is approached along the old, all weather road between Tomar and Serra and is less than 10 minutes from the bustling city of Tomar, but here is tranquil and completely in touch with nature. The house is reached by crossing a wooden footbridge, which is positioned above a cascade of water (although this is dry inthe hot summer months) where the water falls into a river pool and then flows out along the river bed around the property. The main house is entered through a double glass side door and you are immediately in the main lounge room, which has seating areas, and a large salamander which heats this part of the house. to the front of the property is a kitchen, with a small dining area, and another small storage room off which houses the washing machine at present. Reaching the first floor is by means of a spiral staircase and on this floor is a main double bedroom with temporary storage space above and a further smaller bedroom off, with sleeping area at one end and a study/desk area at the other. the building is sound, has metal modern windows, although the style is in keeping with the age of the house; there is insulation in the roof. Across from the main house is the building which once housed the watermill; this has been converted and rebuilt into large bedroom and sitting room for family members or guests and is around another 30m2 of usable space on a single floor. The garden is just over 1688m2, on various levels, including a vegetable patch, and irrigation tank whilst the garden from the footbridge to the house is established with magnolia, bottle brush, fig, and other trees which with the meandering pathway makes for a delightful setting. The main house would benefit from decorating throughout but appears structurally sound. For people looking to live with nature all around, in a most peaceful setting yet maintain convenient links to the main services that a city like Tomar has to offer this is ideal; it is querky, unusual and full of character but something a creative person could certainly put their own stamp on.
