The house briefly comprises>
The ground floor, where there used to function a cafe/ bar, has two entrance doors directly from the street. There are two divisions and a small kitchen, as well a sanitary unit with two hand wash basins and two toilets. This space needs updating. It has great potential to be used as for example a souvenir shop, or an artist gallery, or café.
The first floor is accessed by a door to the side of the house and leads into a corridor. From this corridor there two good sized bedrooms to the left and a living room to the front. To the right, there is a large den and another corridor. To the right of this corridor there are two smaller bedrooms. The wooden stairs leading to the attic are at the end of this corridor.

From the centralized den there is a door to the large family kitchen. Here we have a fabulous traditional large fireplace. There is a door to the patio to one side of the kitchen, and to the opposite side there is a door to the conservatory, which raps around two sides of the house and has fantastic views to the little hamlet and the Castelo do Bode lake. There is an open fireplace in the conservatory. At the end of this room there is a basic family bathroom with toilet, bidet, bathtub and pedestal sink.

The attic of the house has good standing height and could be converted into more living space if so desired. The roof structure is in very good order of repair and the roof tiles were replaced just a few years ago.
The windows in the house are good quality single glazed, with traditional internal wooden shutters. The floors and the ceilings are wood and in good condition.
The door in the kitchen leading to the exterior opens into a small patio. There is an annex with a footprint of 45,6 square meters, with a very basic bathroom to one side and an open fireplace at the end. At the far end of this annex there is a door to the exterior, behind which we have a ruin which is part of this property and could be restored.
At the end of the patio there is another annex, this one measuring 42 square meters.
The property is at the foot of the stone stairs leading up to the church of Dornes. Dornes sits on a peninsula within the Castelo do Bode lake, drinking water supply for Lisbon and surrounding towns.
