LARGE FAMILY HOME OR B&B
This lovely, bright and spacious house, full of character, is situated in a small village, on a quiet road, but only minutes from Serpins which has all essential amenities.
You enter the property from a lane at the side of the house into a bright double height hallway and a gorgeous snug/library area where the original bread oven provides a stunning feature. Double wooden doors lead from here into a huge lounge/dining room/kitchen with wooden ceilings and velux windows which flood the area with light.
There is a wood burner with a back boiler which fires the central heating and a cupboard that houses the hot water heater. Off this room is the fully fitted kitchen with many wooden wall and base units, granite worktops, a double sink and fan oven. The fridge freezer and dishwasher are included in the selling price. There is a large serving hatch through to the lounge/dining room. A white PVC door leads to a secluded pool area with a BBQ and lovely views over the Serra de Lousa.
There is also a pool house which has the pool pump and storage for garden furniture/tools etc. From the lounge, there is access to a large en suite bedroom with wooden ceilings and a large window overlooking the pool. The attractive en suite has a shower, wc, sink and vanity unit. Also on the ground floor there is a separate family shower room and another large room suitable for use as a games room/playroom or winter lounge. A door from here leads to the front of the house. All rooms on this floor have terracotta floor tiles and central heating radiators.
Stairs from the hallway lead up to another bright open plan lounge/dining area with wooden ceilings, exposed stone walls and large windows. On this floor we have another double bedroom with patio doors to a balcony which overlooks the pool, a separate bathroom with bath, overhead shower, wc, sink and vanity unit and a further (self-contained) suite comprising of two large, bright double bedrooms, 1 en suite with a shower, wc, bidet, sink and vanity unit and a hallway with a storage unit for linen. This floor has central heating radiators throughout.
Across the lane (just a few steps) is the large double garage with plenty of parking space in front for guests. The garage has electric ‘up and over’ doors and plenty of space to store wood, tools etc. Beyond the garage is a lovely plot of land with a variety of trees including fruit, olive and oak and a well which provides free water to the land. There are stunning views from here and it would be a lovely spot for a log cabin/summer house offering the potential to provide further income. Alternatively, it offers ample space for a large lawn and vegetable garden.
This is a beautiful property finished to a high standard, with very flexible accommodation, designed to meet a variety of needs and with the potential for further development.
