This large house is located in the pretty hamlet of Pousaflores close to the towns of Ansiao and Alvaiazere and is within three minutes walk of a cafe/bar.
Access is from a quiet road via a metal gate into a low maintenance gravelled front garden which has mature colourful shrubs and a shaded porch. There is a large L-shaped hallway with an original parquet floor, which gives access to all of rooms on ’ this level. To the right is the large bright lounge with an archway through to the dining room. These rooms also have parquet flooring, large windows and patio doors to the front and back of the house. The lounge has a fireplace suitable for a wood burner but the owners currently have an electric fire installed, there are also wall mounted electric heaters/air conditioners throughout the house. Double doors lead from the dining room into the kitchen which is spacious with white painted wooden base and wail units, a gas hob, electric fan oven with cooker hood and extractor fan, and a double sink. There is plumbing for a dishwasher and the floor is marble tiled.
A patio door leads onto the large balcony which runs the full length of the back of the house and has stunning views over the surrounding countryside. There is access from the kitchen to the downstairs apartment and another door leads back to the hallway and the four double bedrooms and family bathroom. All four of the bedrooms are large with patio doors which flood them with light and all have varnished cork floors. Two of the bedrooms also have fitted wardrobes. The family bathroom is huge with a bath and overhead shower, a bidet, a wc and a sink with a vanity unit. Here there is also plumbing for a washing machine. A door outside the bathroom gives access to the loft which has three windows, is full height and runs the full footprint of the house.
From the kitchen, stairs lead down to a separate one bedroom apartment. At the foot of the stairs is a large storage area with a painted concrete floor and a large window. A door from here leads into a tiled hallway off which are the shower room, lounge, kitchen and an internal door into the garage. The shower room is fully tiled with a shower, wc and sink. There is a huge lounge/entertainment area with an impressive built in wine rack and double metal doors leading to an outside patio. The kitchen has wooden base units, a granite worktop and a double stainless steel sink. There is still the original fireplace and a large chimney.
A door gives access to the outside area. The garage has electricity and a manual up and over door. There is another small hallway off which is the fifth double bedroom and here is also the front entrance to the apartment which is accessed via a driveway with ample parking. The large plot of land which is very fertile, includes a variety of fruit trees and olives.
The owners also grow many types of vegetables and keep chickens. There is a barn suitable for a variety of purposes and a bore hole provides free water for the garden.
The house has recently had new windows and patio doors fitted, all of which are double glazed and insulated. The windows are tip and tilt and there are also new shutters. The energy certificate was done prior to this work being carried out, so it isn’t a true reflection of the energy efficiency.
The house has mains electricity and water, bottled gas for the hob and a fosse for sewage. This is an opportunity to own a large home with an option to generate an income via holiday rentals for the apartment. There is also the potential (with appropriate planning) to extend further into the loft area.
