The “Weather Cock” is a lovely, restored 3 bedroom property situated in a quiet, friendly village just 4km from the town of Figueiro dos Vinhos which has all essential amenities (schools, a health centre, supermarkets, library, swimming pool and several popular bars/restaurants/cafes). This house is ready to move into and would make the ideal retirement or holiday home and even offers the potential for B&B.
Entry to the property is via a large metal gate into a secure, paved courtyard which has a tiled shaded BBQ area with a bread oven and a large patio suitable for outdoor dining and entertaining.
The main house consists of a two storied stone building with the living area on the upper level allowing stunning views of the surrounding countryside and marvelous sunsets.
Marble steps from the courtyard lead up to a pretty balcony off which is a large, bright guest bedroom with wooden floors and ceilings and two windows and a beautiful brand new shower room, offering the potential to generate an income through B&B.
The front door leads into a hallway which gives access to the family bathroom, kitchen and lounge. The bathroom is tiled with a wooden ceiling and has a bath with an overhead shower, WC, bidet and sink. There is one large window.
The newly fitted kitchen/dining room has wooden base and wall units, a gas hob, electric oven, s/s sink, fridge freezer, tiled floor and wooden ceiling. The window has a lovely view of the garden.
The bright lounge has an open fireplace and views over the garden and the mountains beyond. Off the lounge are the other bedrooms, one double and one large single. There are wooden floors and ceilings throughout this area.
On the ground floor there are three stores, “lojas” which in the past were used for wine making, bee keeping and storage for potatoes and processing olives. Attached is a workshop, an old still room and a wood store. All of these areas are clean with cement floors.
A door from the patio leads into the pretty, well maintained garden which has several fruit trees (apple, quince, tangerine, fig & olive), grapevines and mature shrubs. There is a well with a steel canopy and a large water tank which the current owners use as a plunge pool in the hotter summer months.
This is a beautiful area popular with walkers and cyclists and there are endless facilities for fishing, horse riding and water sports. There are many river beaches, lakes, dams and waterfalls close by.
The small town of Castanheira de Pera is 15 minutes drive and is home to the famous Praia de Rocas lido, one of the biggest in Europe. The beautiful third city of Coimbra with its stunning architecture and many cultural attractions is 30 minutes drive and the popular beach resort of Figueira da Foz is 50 minutes.
