This house is situated in a quiet village 10 minutes from Espinhal. All of the rooms are large and the property has been finished to a very high standard with lots of exposed stone and original features. This would make a wonderful large family home or would be perfect as a B&B/holiday business.
The front door leads into a spacious hall/library area. To the right is the comfortable lounge which has feature double metal gates through to a huge kitchen/diner, both rooms have wood burners and terracotta floor tiles. The kitchen has ample wooden base units, a double stainless steel sink, gas hob, electric oven, large tiled cooker hood, a large brick fireplace with a log store and a walk in pantry. A door from the kitchen gives access to the patios behind the house which overlook the river.
Stone stairs from the lounge lead up to a double bedroom which has a lovely old wooden ceiling beam, terracotta tiled floor, two windows, a wood burner and a fully tiled en suite cloakroom with a sink, wc and bidet.
To the left of the entrance hallway is the enormous master bedroom. This is a beautiful room with a feature marble and stone fireplace housing the wood burner, a large window and patio doors to a lovely terrace with wonderful views. The en suite has a bath with an overhead shower, a vanity unit with twin wash hand basins, a bidet, a wc and an electric towel rail. A large family bathroom is also located off the hallway. Stairs from the hall lead down to two further double bedrooms, one of which is particularly spacious.
The main patio at the back of the house is large with plenty of space for outside dining and a perfect place to relax listening to the flow of the river below. There is a built in BBQ area with a sink, and the original well supplies all of the water to the house (the purest mountain drinking water). A gate gives access to the parking area at the side of the house and double metal gates and steps lead down to another terrace, off which are two large store rooms/workshops and there is a further patio area to the side of the house with a jacuzzi which is included in the sale price.
This is a truly beautiful property in a tranquil location but only 10 minutes drive from the nearest cafes, small shops and a pharmacy. The Medieval town of Penela which has events at the castle throughout the year, has several good restaurants, a health centre, library, swimming pool and a hotel & spa and is only 15 minutes drive.
