This spacious and quirky house, with a total living space of 345 sqm, is conveniently situated between Tomar and Ferreira do Zêzere. It consists of 4 bedrooms, one bathroom with WC and shower, guest WC, living room, kitchen, sunroom with panoramic view of the garden, larder and pantry, utilities/tool room, huge adega, loft and well insulated storage room upstairs. The property is completely walled/fenced and has 4 entrance gates. Furniture items negotiable.
The large living room has double-glazed doors leading to an outside path and flower beds running alongside the front of the house. All windows in the main part of the house are double-glazed, with external shutters. In the living room, a modern pellet burner keeps it cozy in the winter.
The central hall, beautifully decorated with azulejos (Portuguese tiles), connects the living room, all 4 bedrooms, the bathroom and the kitchen. The floors throughout the house are modern stone tiles.
The kitchen is tiled in a warm terracotta colour. Worktops and sink are solid granite, and there is a Rangemaster cooker installed. From the kitchen, there is direct access to the sunroom, which in turn has a double-glazed door leading to the outside terrace and the garden. The kitchen also gives direct access to the larder and pantry. Double-glazed doors lead from the pantry into the utilities/tool room and on the other side to the adega. From the utilities/tool room, large, double-glazed doors access the terrace and garden.
The main bathroom has a large walk-in shower, storage space and a heated towel rack. The guest WC includes a bidet.
The adega has separate doors to the outside path and gates. From the adega, there is a concrete staircase leading to the airy loft. Here, there is a massive amount of storage space and a separate, well insulated storage room. This room can be also converted into a playroom, games room or art atelier as it has a large window facing east which affords the room plenty of light. Modern shutters keep the heat out in summer.
The property is connected to mains water, electricity, has installed fibre optic internet and phone line, and has a septic tank for sewage. Water is heated with solar panels, backed up by a programmable electric heater for the shorter winter days.
Next to the house there is a large parking area with gated access, and on the other side there is a former threshing circle with a covered barbecue.
The land offers enough potential to combine a flower garden and/or swimming pool with a rural area ideal for creating a large vegetable garden, or even a vineyard.
The garden is home to dozens of mature fruit trees and olive trees: a large cherry tree, pomegranates, oranges, tangerines, lemons, apricots, apples, quince, almonds, figs, and red and yellow plums. There is also a fruit-bearing maracuja plant, as well as damsons, strawberry trees and blackberries. At the bottom of the garden, there is a delightful small forest of pine trees and nascent cork oak saplings.
In the garden, there is a storage shed with space for logs, tools, and garden equipment. There are also two wells, which are not currently used but can easily be made operational again.
A bus to Tomar stops in front of the house and in nearby Carqueijal and Olalhas there are cafés, a pharmacy and an ATM.
The larger town of Tomar, which is home to the UNESCO listed Convento do Cristo, is around 15 minutes drive from the property.
Tomar is a bustling market town with a variety of supermarkets, shops, cafes, restaurants, bars, banks, health centres, hospitals, schools, bus and train station and university. The property is also only a short 10-minute drive from Castelo do Bode Lake, which is popular for all kinds of water sport activities.
The closest airport to the property is situated at Lisbon, which is around one and a half hours by car.
