This beautiful period manor house is set in one of the main arteries of Abrantes, the main street that connects the principal churches of the town. The property obviously is very traditional and is packed with character but there are also some modern features which works perfectly to help to keep the property up to date.
One of the best parts of the property is it having a huge garage to the side with internal access to the property, giving the property off street parking with space for at least four cars.
When we enter the property, we enter a great entrance hall with stone floors and tiled walls. There is a small bathroom on this floor as well as a wine cellar. There is large staircase in front that leads to the upper floor. To the right there is a very spacious living room with an open fireplace. There is a door leading outside which has black out glass meaning it provides lovely natural light into the room but no one can see in from the outside. To the left of the main entrance hall is a large room which at the moment is not being used for anything in specific but since it has its own separate access it could easily be used as a rental unit.
On the upper floor we have the kitchen, an office space with a small library, a living room, a dining room and a room in the middle of these two that could be used as either a bedroom or a second living room. From the kitchen and the landing there is access to the garden. Here there is an artisanal water storage tank and a lovely swimming pool. The garden is completely private which is very rare given its position.
On the third floor of the property is the sleeping quarters. Here there are seven bedrooms, three to each side of the staircase and the master in the middle. Each side has a bathroom and the master is an en-suite. These bedrooms are all relatively god sizes but ones bigger than the others so since there is enough space for this, these smaller divisions could be turned into walk in wardrobes.
The loft space is not being used as living space at the moment. Here there are three hot water cylinders, which can each be controlled separately, meaning if there are only a few people in the house, you only need to have one on.
To the outside, we have a wonderful private garden with a good size swimming pool. The garden has a lovely grassy area and some patio area around the pool itself. There is also an annex that has a bathroom, kitchen diner and a bedroom which was used before as the maid’s quarters. Now it could easily be used as a rental or guest annex.
The property is situated in the historical town of Abrantes. There are several shops, restaurants and cafes within walking distance from the property. Abrantes has a variety of supermarkets, restaurants, cafes, shops, cinema, bus and train station, schools, college and river beaches.
The property is easy to locate and has good access links to the A23 east west dual carriageway. The closest airport to the property is situated at Lisbon, which is approximately one and a quarter hours’ drive. Lisbon airport is serviced by several low cost airlines, which operate regular flights into and out of the United Kingdom.
