The house is not connected either to mains water or electricity, but does have a large well from which water is pumped into a deposit which feeds the house by gravity; the house has very good sun exposure so apt for solar power installation.
The property is within walking distance of a quaint village around 7,6 km or a 10 minute drive from the town of Proença-a-Nova.
The door of the house leads right into the kitchen / living room, from which we have a door to the bathroom with walk-in shower, toilet and original hand wash basin. On the side of the kitchen / living room we have stone steps leading to the spacious bedroom with built in closet and large window with wonderful views into the landscape.
Next to the house, we have steps leading up to the pretty stone annex to the rear of the house. The plot climbs up the slope of the hill. There was a forest fire on the neighboring, and now we have a large number of small olive and cork oak trees and a lot of wild herbs and flowers growing in abundance on our property.
To the front of the house there is a path which rarely takes any traffic since it only leads into the woods. On the other side of the path there is a large flat meadow through which runs a winter stream, where the well is situated. A perfect space to have your vegetable patch, with a number of mature olive trees, some mature fruit trees and cork oaks. This part of the property includes a bit of mixed forest sloping up the hill. There is an access on a forest path which borders this part of the plot.
