The house is set over two floors, each with its separate entrance. The house has a footprint of 145 square meters, and has perfectly laid Portuguese traditional “calçada” all around and to the rear and into the swimming pool area. The grounds measure almost half a hectare.
The property is located on a tarmac road and is set back a bit from the road. Electric iron entrance gates open to the front patio of the house. The main door leads directly into a large room, which serves as a sitting room, a games room, has a bar in one corner, and is equipped with a log burner. To the right side of this large open plan room there is also a dining room, which could be converted into a bedroom. To the left side, there is good sized bedroom and a bathroom with a walk-in shower. And we have a fully equipped wooden kitchen with granite worktop and fitted appliances.
At the far end of the dining room, we have a door which opens unto a wooden staircase leading to the landing of the first floor of the house. Here we have a dining area and living room in open space with log burner with forced ventilation. From the dining area we have a double door to a veranda to the side of the house, and from the living room space there is a double door to a veranda to the front of the house.
From the living room we enter a corridor. To the right, we have the fully equipped kitchen with cherry wood elements and granite worktops. A door leads onto stairs going to the ground level and directly to the pool.
Next to the kitchen there is a walk-in store room with a hatch in the ceiling, giving access to the attic of the building.
Next to this we have a good sized bathroom with a corner bath tub. Then we have one double bedroom on this side of the corridor and two more double bedrooms on the opposite side. All three bedrooms have high built-in wardrobes. At the end of the corridor there is a bathroom with walk-in shower.
The windows and doors throughout the house are high quality PVC frames with double glazing and with aluminum blinds.
There are central heating radiators in every room, the system is run on oil. And we have air-con units in all bedrooms and living rooms.
Going to the rear of the house, we have a 9 x 5 meter salt water swimming pool and a very spacious area for relaxing and entertaining around it. The perfect place for those happy bbq parties.
There is also the storage building with the pump system for the pool, the oil deposit for the central heating and space for the large lawn mower plus other garden utensils. More to the back there is a lovely garden with a small greenhouse. The garden boasts a large variety of fruit trees such as 11 orange trees, 2 lemon trees, I lime and 1 pink grapefruit, 2 pomegranate, 2 hazelnut, 1 pear, 1 fig, 2 nectarine, 1 victoria plum, 1 bayleaf, several cherry, a few apple trees, lots of olive trees and one enormous avocado. And a vineyard sloping up the hill at the rear of the land. There is a borehole with electric pump for irrigation. The land is walled and fenced to the front and to the sides, and has a vehicle entrance to access the garden and the vineyard.
The property is located within walking distance of a country supply shop with bar, a popular meeting point for all the neighbors in this area.
