PV0014 - Casa antiga no Alentejo Pendente

Valongo, Portalegre, Portugal
€ 65 000,00


Traditional single storey Alentejo rural house, ready for occupation or renovation.

Built in 1960, consisting of 80 m2 living space this property with its unusual internal layout offers a great opportunity for living the typical Portuguese way or for improving and adapting, either way this edge of the village property is a great chance to live in this attractive peaceful area of Portugal.

The property is set back from the entrance to the village of Valongo, at the end of a private track which overlooks a site of local importance where the oldest tree in the area (over 1000 yrs old!) is situated as well as the preserved village laundry/washing area.

It should be noted that all of the windows and outer doors have been recently replaced with double glazed units.

From the front door you enter the sizeable hallway, to the left of which is the bathroom and toilet; proceeding up two steps and you enter the main room which houses the large salamander and the original fireplace and has ceiling up to the roof area. Beyond this is the good sized kitchen, which opens onto the garden.

Returning to the main room you enter the dining room, again with high ceiling, and window opening to the front of the property.

Off this room there are three double bedrooms.

There is a further room on the northern end of the property which is accessible only from the garden, which can be used as a storage area for garden tools and furniture.

A large integral garage can be found to the left of the front door, which could be converted into more accommodation if required.

Surrounding the property is a large 1450m2, flat garden area with productive fruit trees, a water well and a very attractive seating area, which catches the afternoon sun and offers a relaxing peaceful retreat. There is also an animal/storage building in the garden.

The property is, as stated, on the edge of the quaint typically Portuguese village of Valongo, 23 mins to Ponte de Sur, with its supermarkets schools etc; 18 mins to historic town of Avis, with the remains of its 13th century castle, picturesque lake, old streets and whitewashed houses; 2 hours by road to Lisbon airport; 90 mins to the Spanish border between Elvas and Badajoz, but remember Portugal’s roads are mostly free of traffic and so always a pleasant drive."
