The house is set over two floors, has a footprint of 92 square meters and comes with a plot measuring 11.427 square meters. The house is connected to both mains electricity and mains water.
The main entrance door is from the covered terrace on the side of the house. Upon entering the house, we are in the open space dining / living room with open fireplace. To the right, there are four steps down into the kitchen, which has a special feature: the original, traditional bread or pizza oven, totally renovated. The kitchen has a glass door with interior shutter to the side of the house, where we have a lovely garden terrace and many mature fruit trees, inviting us to chill in the shade on a warm afternoon. To the rear of the house there is a stone shed housing the gas boiler, the gas heater and the gas bottles both for the central heating system, and the gas oven and cooker.
Back in the house: from the living room there are three doors to the left: one to the partially tiled bathroom with vanity basin with storage cabin underneath, toilet, bidet and shower cabin; and there are two bedrooms to the left, both with built-in wooden closets.
From the living room, there is a triple glass door to a good sized deck veranda with view to the rear garden and the lake.
Right next to the main entrance door there is a door which opens to stone steps leading into the ground floor. There is a small storage room and a bathroom with bathtub, toilet and vanity basin, asking for update work.
On the ground floor, there are two doors from the rear of the property, each leading into a storage room. It would be easy to open a door from the rear garden into one of the ground floor rooms. It would be possible to convert the ground floor rooms into more living space.
To the side of the house there are steps to the rear of the house. Next to the house there is an impressive ancient bougainvillea. To the rear of the house there is a ruin which could be rebuilt, and a large threshing circle which would make a wonderful terrace or outdoor kitchen and bbq, with views to the surrounding landscape and the lake.
The plot belonging to this property measures 11.427 square meters. There are a good number of mature fruit trees on the land, which is pretty flat. The land borders a winter creek and when the Castelo do Bode dam is at a higher level, it borders this lake. It would be possible to anchor a boat in the little bay.
