Nestling amongst a cluster of six houses in a little hamlet 12 minutes drive from Lousa is Casa no Ceu. Built from local stone, this charming rustic dwelling offers peace, tranquility and some of the most stunning views in the area.
A pretty path bordered by flowers and sweet smelling lavender and herbs meanders its way from the parking area to the house. The house, an old Portuguese dwelling, was renovated and modernised by previous owners whilst retaining many original features.
The two storey house has 3 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (1 en suite), lounge, kitchen, storeroom/utility room, wood store and a sun terrace. The main entrance opens into a bright lounge which has wooden floors and ceilings, a double wooden framed window with a built in window seat and storage, and a wood burner. Doors from here lead to a double bedroom with built in wardrobes and access to the loft. Next door is the family bathroom which has a bath with an overhead shower, a bidet, we and a sink. The original wooden beam above the door is a nice feature. A door from the lounge leads into the bright galley style kitchen which has a tiled floor, pine ceiling, wooden wall and base units, marble worktops, a gas hob, electric oven and gas boiler. The breakfast bar has wonderful views over the surrounding area. Stairs lead from the kitchen to the second double bedroom which has a lovely vaulted ceiling, a tiled floor and a large window with more spectacular views over the valley below.
An original wooden door leads from the hallway to external slate steps and a paved area with access to a self contained double bedroom and en suite shower room with a shower, sink and wc. The floor and ceiling are wooden and there are thick stone walls keeping it cool in summer and warm in winter.
Next door is a store room/utility room with plumbing for a washing machine plus a further store room for logs/bikes etc.
To the rear of the house is a spiral staircase leading to a sunny roof terrace with the most breathtaking views. Enjoy the panoramic views during daylight hours and then drink a toast to the most spectacular sunsets.
The hamlet is accessed via a tarmac road up to the final 300m where it becomes a well maintained track.
