The property is located in a very private location with great views into the countryside and good access. There are no near neighbors to this property. The house is connected to mains electricity and the water both for domestic use and irrigation purposes is supplied by a bore hole. There is also a large water mine on the land.
The main house is set over two floors and has a new roof with good insulation.
Each floor can accommodate one family /couple.
The main entrance to the ground floor is from a courtyard to the front of the house and leads into a large entrance hall. There is a guest toilet to one corner. On the ground floor we have a large living room, a dining room, a kitchen with traditional fireplace, and a large bedroom with en-suite bathroom with shower cubicle, toilet and pedestal sink, and a smaller room used as a dressing area.
The first floor is accessed via marble covered stone steps from the marble covered courtyard. The landing on the first floor is enclosed by aluminum framed windows and there are two doors. One of the doors leads directly into a fully equipped kitchen, whereas the other door opens into a corridor.
From the corridor there are six doors and a direct open access to the dining/ living room with a wood burner to one side. There are three good sized bedrooms, a bathroom with bathtub, toilet and pedestal sink as well as a storage room to this floor.
There is a hatch door to the well-insulated attic.
The roof of the house is new and thanks to the insulation which was applied the attic could easily be converted into more living space.
The walled and gated courtyard of the house is large a there is plenty of space to accommodate a large table and a good number of chairs for outdoor meals. The floor is paved with marble slabs.
Outside of the courtyard and next to it there is a large annex set on two levels.
The top level currently houses two large workshops and a garage with over and out door. In one of the workshops there is a traditional bread oven and a kitchen sink with drainer. On the lower level, two divisions are used as a barn and stall and the third is the traditional “adega” or wine cellar.
Next to this annex there is the ruin of an old stone house which could be restored into more living space or a guest accommodation.
