The aptly named Quinta Tardis is a charming maze of a house located in a peaceful village minutes from the town of Miranda do Corvo.
This journey of discovery begins on a quiet village street from where we enter the pleasantly cool sitting room. This room has a tiled floor and the owners have installed a pellet burner with a back boiler, which fires the central heating for those chillier winter evenings. A door from here leads to a large bright room currently used as a craft room/office which would also be suitable as a 3rd bedroom or a separate dining room.
Steps from the lounge give access to a spacious kitchen/diner with a tiled floor, attractive fitted units, a gas hob and electric eye level grill. There is ample room for a large table & chairs. There is also access from the kitchen to a utility area with plumbing for a washing machine and internal stairs down to a huge room currently being used as a workshop but with potential for use as a playroom/studio. A doorway from the staircase opens onto a large patio area with double gates to the street, suitable for parking or for outside dining. A further door from the kitchen leads to the lovely master bedroom and en-suite bath/shower room.
External stairs take us down to the attractive guest accommodation which is situated beside the pool area. From here, a covered terrace leads into an L-shaped hallway with doors to a lovely fully tiled shower room and a large bedroom with a patio door to the poolside. There are stunning views from here over the Serra de Lousa.
The salt water swimming pool measures 6 x 4m and has a tiled terrace, a solar shower and a fitness jet. There is a pool room which houses the pump and filtration system and has space to store garden tools. Adjacent to the pool is a large area which needs paved to finish it off, but the paving stones are provided and a large garden shed is also included. Across the road there is a shaded stone building currently used as a carport, which comes with the house.
This property is ideally situated only 5 minutes drive from Miranda do Corvo known for it’s weekly markets and busy monthly car boot sales. The pretty town of Lousa is 15 minutes away and the beautiful university city of Coimbra 25 minutes.
Quinta Tardis is a quirky, interesting property with a deceiving amount of space. It has been priced to sell quickly and viewing is highly recommended.
