This is a rare opportunity to purchase a house finished to the very highest standard with many unique features. It is situated in a quiet village with a bar within walking distance and is only 7 km from the popular market town of Miranda do Corvo which has all essential amenities.
Entry is through double metal electric gates to a beautifully paved driveway. On the right steps lead up to terraces planted with fruit trees (peach, apricot, cherry, orange & lemon).There is room here for a vegetable garden if desired. At the top is a BBQ/seating area with wonderful views and a lovely stone building completely fitted out as a bar.
On the left of the driveway is a covered carport with UV panels to protect the car from sun damage in the hotter summer months. A gate from here gives access to the garden and there is also a small guest cloakroom with a WC, sink and gas boiler. At the top of the driveway is a large utility/dry stores room and the controls for the pool are also housed here. Outside we have secure storage for the gas bottles and a bin store. Another gate gives access to the garden.
A white PVC and glass door leads into the very spacious open plan kitchen/dining/lounge area. The kitchen area has many wooden wall and base units, a stainless steel sink, a gas hob and oven, gas boiler and a terracotta tiled floor. The dining area has space for a good sized dining suite. The lounge area has a large pellet burner which fires the central heating. There are ceiling fans with lights in the lounge and dining areas and laminate flooring throughout.
Off the lounge is the 3rd bedroom which the current owners use as an office and occasional bedroom with a folding guest bed.
An archway from the dining room leads to a small hallway, off which are the master-suite, a double bedroom and a large shower room. The guest bedroom is a good size and has fitted wardrobes, a fan/light over the bed and laminate floor. The fully tiled shower room has a large walk in shower, WC, sink and vanity unit.
The master-suite is fabulous with a good sized bright bedroom with a fan/light above the bed and a laminate floor. An archway leads to the huge shower room/dressing room which has a shower, WC, sink and vanity unit and an area with floor to ceiling fitted wardrobes and shoe storage. A door from here leads to the BBQ area.
A door from the lounge area leads to the beautiful covered terrace with roman style pillars which faces the pool, off here is a fully equipped summer kitchen/dining area with kitchen units, sink, marble worktops and a brick built BBQ. The weatherproof, anti-rot canvas walls roll up in summer.
There is a beautiful, easily maintained saltwater pool with a lava stone paved surround. The lawn is neat and tidy with an irrigation system, lemon and orange trees and an ornamental well which is currently used as a small vegetable garden. There is a large shed which stores the garden furniture and the pellets for the burner in the lounge.
An ornate gateway takes us into the stunning Japanese garden which features a Koi Carp pond and a beautiful pagoda with a viewing glass floor. There are graveled areas with stepping stones and underwater lights, a truly special place to enjoy afternoon tea or an evening glass of Saki.
