Amazing opportunity to acquire a substantial village property, actually consisting of two independent houses, substantial land and rustic out-buildings all legally registered. Just 10 minutes from the historic city of Tomar, ancient home of the Knights Templars in Portugal and 15 minutes from the beautiful Castelo de Bode Lake, measuring 61 kms in length and available for sailing, water-skiing, fishing, swimming or simply a wonderful day out. House Number 1 Generous accommodation currently consisting of a two storey house, presently divided into a ground floor 3 bedroomed apartment and a larger, first floor 3 bedroomed apartment, both fully self-contained with functioning kitchens, bathrooms, unusually large rooms for Portuguese property and all in good condition and always well maintained. Top quality flooring throughout the entire building, quality finishes to the floors, ceilings and doors…..all this needs is your personal choice of paintwork internally. And shutters fitted to every window. Many rooms also having access to balconies and at the rear views across the gardens to beautiful wooded agricultural land. The property would suit a large, extended family or two couples/families wishing to purchase together On the lower ground floor is a large adega/storage area, which could be adapted to provide further living space, but currently serving as a tool and machinery store. There is also attic space available which has never been developed. To the side and rear of this house is around 2500m2 of superb, terraced land….fertile, easily managed, with some established fruit trees, olive trees but also with a variety of substantial, registered rustic buildings for immediate use as animal houses or storage, plus a tractor shed and a further two car garage. The main rustic building is two storey, with a simple Portuguese kitchen below, but a large first floor area that could become an excellent studio for a variety of artistic activities. All of these rustic buildings are substantially built and stable. The first terrace, ie at the front of the property contains a concrete water storage tank, holding up to 200,000 litres of water, which, with Camara permission, could be converted into a very large swimming pool with minimal alterations. It should be noted that this entire property has been extremely well maintained over the years and is presented in excellent condition. House Number 2 Immediately next door, is a fully renovated and updated traditional, single level house, originally built over a hundred years ago, but around 10 years ago modernized, improved and updated by the current owners who were involved in house building. Once again, quality floors, tiling, wall finishing all installed together with modern aluminium windows and doors, double glazed with draught-proof seals. The kitchen is modern design, fully fitted and never been used. You could move straight in with no additional expense! Attached to the house, with direct access from the street is a generously sized double garage, or workshop space which could easily operate as studio for many occupations or hobbies…direct access from this space on to a full width, excellent sized rear porch, complete with fully installed bbq, which has never been used. From here, there is access to another large storage room, which could double up as office, workshop, hobby room and which also has access to the full length roof space At the rear of this house, beyond the rear porch is a small, easily managed garden space, gas cylinder storage structure and at the far end a good sized, dry storage area for logs. Once again, this house is in excellent condition structurally and cosmetically. Both properties currently are connected to mains water, and electricity but have their own sewage systems, however the current owner has already made provisions for both properties to be connected to the mains system when it is introduced into the village. Fast fibre broadband is available immediately outside the houses and could quickly be connected. Located on the main street of this little village, there is very little traffic throughout the day, only local people and therefore no traffic noise and to the rear the view for many kilometres is of rural agricultural countryside. There is a local café/bar just along the street and the local association is also very close. All of the amenities, such as shops, supermarkets, hospital, schools, polytechnic, health centre, cafes/bars and good quality restaurants etc are, as stated before, only ten minutes away in Tomar, by car. Peace and tranquility yet close enough to every possible requirement.
