This is a beautifully updated traditional Portuguese house with every modern convenience, yet retaining many of the wonderful original features including attractive exposed stonework throughout.
Entry to the property is via double gates leading to a private courtyard from where there is access to the former adega and casa dos animais, which have been converted to an attractive guest bedroom with en-suite and French doors, and a separate fully tiled studio/workroom and utility area with a sink & worktops (washing machine and tumble-dryer included) and a WC. There is also access to the garage and machine room from the courtyard.
There are further rooms, as yet not renovated, but with the potential to form a separate apartment with the option of extending further into a second garage. Services have been installed for water, electricity, gas, alarm, drains and central heating
Steps lead from the courtyard to the main house on the first floor, and to a large tiled sun terrace and a balcony with stunning views to the Serra de Lousa and beyond. The sun shines on these areas all day long! There is a fully tiled utility/store room at the top of the stairs.
French doors lead into the stunning open plan lounge/kitchen/dining area with a vaulted ceiling and original beams. There is a high quality brand new kitchen with all new appliances included, solid wood floor, exposed stonework, double glazed tip & tilt windows to the front and rear, an air conditioning unit, satellite TV point and telephone. Enter from here to a hallway where you can access the en-suite master bedroom and a guest cloakroom/WC.

At the back of the house is a large attractive plot of land with orange, peach, olive trees and grape vines and the potential to put in a swimming pool if required.
