A very unusual, spacious house arranged as two apartments (one ready set up as a rental apartment or granny flat) or it can be used as one large family home. The very large attic has good head room, and the potential to be a third apartment, or extra bedrooms and bathrooms.
Four/five spacious bedrooms in total, large living/dining room, two kitchens and three bathrooms. It also lends itself to be a B&B as all the floors are connected by internal and external marble staircases. All bedrooms have fitted carpets and all other floors are ceramic tiles. All the rooms have high ceilings
There is a large integral garage for two cars with workshop space and utility area for washing machine and freezer. 1445m2 flat, fertile garden with spectacular views across fields and orchards and of the beautiful Serra d’Aire mountains.
The house is of modern construction eliminating concern for woodworm or termites, which is a common problem in many Portuguese houses. Electricity, telephone and wifi connected.
There is ample space in the garden for a large swimming pool and for self-sufficiency. Possibly even space for a yurt or two, or perhaps log cabins for tourism business. Immediate access to miles of safe and interesting walks or places to cycle.

Main Floor Apartment:
There are staircases to the upper floor both internally and externally. From the front staircase you enter via a front door into a hall with marble staircase up to the attic area.

Here is a huge, double aspect living/dining room (12m2 x 4m2 approx) with windows to the rear with lovely mountain views, and large patio doors to the front leading on to the balcony. There is a large log burner which is more than sufficient to heat the whole room.
The kitchen/diner has wooden cabinets and marble counters, and a large marble table with six chairs. There is a rear door from the kitchen leading to a small balcony and stairs to the rear garden. There are two bathrooms on this floor, one very large fully tiled family bathroom and a smaller bathroom with toilet and sink. There are three large double bedrooms on this floor, one now being used as an office.
To the front is a garden with a large willow tree and many mature flowering shrubs around a low maintenance gravel area. There is a lemon tree, a fig, an almond and some eating grape vines. There is a wall along the road frontage with wrought iron double gates and a pedestrian gate leading to the garage with plenty of parking space and a wide side area leading to the back garden. Immediately at the back of the house is laid out an ornamental garden with many flowering plants and roses. A covered verandah which provides a shady and sheltered place to sit and to eat, and an attractive built-in BBQ.
Beyond the flower garden is a lawned area with gravel paths, many fruit trees including orange and lemons, and mature olive trees. At the end of the garden is a cultivated vegetable area. The garden is walled on three sides and there is a post and wire fence at the end of the garden.
