Spacious country home for sale with a wonderful plot with 2 boreholes and a well.
This fabulous home was fully renovated to high standard and is set on a plot of land which has not seen neither pesticides nor fertilizers in the past 30 years. The house can be accessed either from a parking space by the road or by the courtyard, like the owners do.
So coming into the front door by the road, we walk up onto a small covered porch and through the front door into a corridor which runs the length of the house.
On the right hand side we have two good sized bedrooms, on the left hand side we have an office and a third bedroom. At the end of the corridor we enter a light filled kitchen, equipped with electric oven and stove, fridge and double sink, with wood burner in one corner. The dining table is custom made, of greenish Brazilian shist stone. The floor is tiled greenish Brazilian shist stone. Off to the right side we have the partially tiled family bathroom with walk-in shower, hand wash basin and toilet, and a washing machine. The floor in the bathroom is also tiled in tiled greenish Brazilian shist stone.
We walk out of the kitchen onto a large terrace which wraps around two sides of the house and from which we have absolutely fabulous views into the far distance.
There is a wooden staircase in one corner of the kitchen, which takes us up to the open space attic room. We can walk out onto a terrace with the same fabulous view.
The floor in the attic is solid pine, as are the floor in the corridor and in the bedrooms.
Back in the corridor, we have a staircase to the lower floor of the house. We enter what is used as the summer living room, which has a door to the garden to the side of the house. From this living room we access a large room with no windows, used as storage, through which we walk to enter a large space. The space to left can be used as another living area, a yoga room, a library or could be closed off as an office. Up front there is a door which opens to the room which accommodates the high-quality wood burner which powers the central heating system throughout the entire house. To the right we walk down four steps into a very large room which is currently used as a bedroom, with large window doors to the courtyard.
Back into the summer living room, we walk past the staircase and come to the utilities room, where the equipment for the solar powered hot water heating system is installed. One the opposite side we have the door to the large bathroom with toilet, hand wash basin, open shower space and large bathtub.
All the windows in the house are high quality double glazed with traditional interior wooden shutters.
Walking out into the courtyard, we turn right and find a stone annex which accommodates a rustic kitchen with a wood burner stove, ideal to bake wonderful bread or pizza, a work surface with sink, and a traditional dining or party room with fireplace. The floor is in shist stone slabs, the room has a lot of light due to large windows. There are steps outside which take us up to a terrace with good views.
On the opposite side of the house, we have a large annex with several rooms, all unfinished, but with electric cables and water supply and sewage leading into the house sewage system connected to a large septic tank on the land. These spaces can be developed by the new owner into whatever the heart desires.
Outside of the gate of the courtyard, we are led onto the fabulous farm land, boasting two boreholes and a large deep well. There is also a large water deposit on the far side of the land on an elevated position, which is fed by the pump in one of the boreholes and supplies water for irrigation of trees and crops by gravity.
There are plenty of fruit trees, such as apple, pear, quince, peach, nectarine, plum, cherry, cumquat, persimmon, loquat, orange, lemon, lime, pomegranate, walnut, almond, hazelnut, fig, olive and even an avocado tree!
