This property is in a perfectly habitable condition and has plenty of room. It has a borehole which is perfect for filling the swimming pool. It has a large parking area which has been paved with the traditional Portuguese cobbles, there is room here for at least 5-6 cars.
From the quiet road the property sits on, you can’t see much of the house itself as there is a large hedgerow giving lots of privacy to the property. The entrance to the property is gated and are automatic.
The ground floor is where the garage is. It is all open space and there is a wooden staircase leading up to the first floor. This space could easily be converted into more living space since there is plenty of parking outside. To the back of this room, there is another large space where there is a kitchen and an open fireplace. Here there is also a bathroom.
Now going up to the first floor via the exterior staircase, we arrive in the kitchen. The kitchen is a good enough space, with plenty of natural light and there is an open fireplace. Further along is a hallway with the family bathroom to the right which is spacious and has a large shower cubicle. To the left is the bigger bedroom of the three, then there is the staircase down to the garage, then the dining/living room after that. The living room has patio doors out onto a veranda. Then, at the end of the hallway, is the other two bedrooms.
Now to the outside. There is a lovely swimming pool area with a pool house which is where the barbecue and bread oven are. Behind this, there is an annex perfect for storage. Here is where the pump is for the bore hole. The property has mains water but the water from the borehole can also be fed into the house as there is a bypass.
After the swimming pool area, is the rest of the ground. Here there are various fruit trees and shrubbery but with TLC could be made into a nice garden.
The property is set in a friendly village and walking distance to a café.
The village belongs to the parish of São Pedro which has all the amenities such as cafés, restaurants, pharmacy, doctor surgery with English speaking doctor and ATM.
