This is an opportunity to purchase an attractive property with a large piece of land which is a designated building plot. The house is situated at the end of a small village, a few minutes drive from the pretty town of Penela.
Entry to the property is from a quiet road via a single metal gate. A patio gives access to 2 adegas currently used as a workroom and storage but both are suitable for conversion to further accommodation.
Steps lead up to the first floor and into a small hallway with doors leading to a shower room/utility room and a large open plan lounge/dining room/kitchen. The lounge which still retains the beautiful original double doors, has a wooden floor and a fan assisted wood burner ensuring that the house stays cosy in the cooler winter evenings. The kitchen has a tiled floor and is fully fitted with wall and base units, an electric oven and a gas hob. Another cupboard houses the hot water boiler. A patio door leads to the outside terrace which runs the length of the house.
Doors from the dining area give access to a nice single bedroom and a small hallway, off which there are two spacious double bedrooms, one with built in wardrobes and dual aspect windows. The other double bedroom has a storage area above the door and patio doors leading out to the lovely terrace which has a shaded dining area, BBQ and stunning views of the Serra de Lousa.
External stairs lead down to the ground floor which has a nice second kitchen, a covered dining area & BBQ, a garden storage room with a cloakroom and further rooms currently used for storage but suitable for conversion. There is a lovely garden with mature flower beds and at the side of the house double metal gates lead to a large driveway with parking for several cars.
Of incredible value and included in the price is the large beautiful piece of land beyond the driveway. There is a small stone ruin on the land and an original stone water font which is a wonderful feature and provides free water for irrigation. There are also several fruit trees (cherry, nectarine, plum & lemon) and eight olive trees. This is a designated building plot so it should be relatively easy to obtain permission to build another house.
This property is in a pretty, peaceful location but the medieval town of Penela is only 10 minutes drive, and has most amenities and a lovely castle which frequently hosts medieval fiestas & fireworks displays. There are many nice restaurants in this area
Miranda do Corvo is 15 minutes drive and has weekly farmers markets, a monthly car boot sale, restaurants, supermarkets and all essential amenities.
