A quaint, original property with fantastic views, consisting of two old stone houses built side-by-side for renovation and extension, situated at the outskirts of a little hamlet near the town of Cernache do Bonjardim, county of Sertã.
The location of this property is special, due to its far extending views into the distant rolling hills. The property is located at the end of a tarmac lane and there is a private driveway leading to it on one side whereas on the other there is access on a dirt track, leading to the rear and the side of the buildings. The property is in a private setting yet not in an isolated position.
The property is connected to mains electricity. Water of consumption and for irrigation is from a well on the property.
The total footprint of the houses measures 165 square meters and could be extended. The plot area totals 1090 square meters.
The larger house consists of a stone construction with ground floor and first floor, whereby the ground floor has two divisions, one of them being used as a wine cellar (adega) and the other as storage space.
The first floor is basically habitable. There is an entrance hall, from which there is access to the right to a partially tiled bathroom with toilet, hand wash basin and shower corner and to a corridor leading to two small bedrooms. At the end of the hall there is a door to another corridor, with a door to the right to the rustic kitchen with open fireplace. Up front there is a door to a living room / study, from which there is also access to the right hand corridor and to the bedrooms.
The floors of the house are wood and in need of attention, the windows are single glazed iron framed. The roof does not leak. Next to this house there are two stone annexes, one of them housing a large bread oven. These annexes could be converted into more living space.
The second building is ample space and two levels high and there is an annex currently being used as a garage. This building could be joined to the other one and the whole has a great potential to be converted into an original and comfortable modern family home or an easy-to-manage holiday house.
The plot of land is to both sides of the buildings as well as on a terrace to the front and another to the rear of the buildings. There is a good number of different mature fruit trees, three large olive trees, a camellia and some vines. And there is space enough on several levels to grow vegetables and salads and to keep chickens.
