The Country House has been completely rebuilt from a historic 19th century house in the typical simple Portuguese villa style from a ruin in 2015 and so far has all the comfort features of a new building. Characteristics such as the approximately centrally set rubble stone interior wall between living room and kitchen, a small balcony on the first floor and the broken stone outer walls are combined with modern energy equipment such as a fully automatic pellet stove for meanwhile necessary heating of all rooms and a solar thermal system with 300 liter tank for the highly available and ecological hot-water supply. The house is situated on a small street near the forest of the village and so far in a very quiet, relaxing area.
Here are the basic object-related data: Total floor space approx. 120 sqm distributed on a ground and upper floor, 3 bedrooms with wardrobes, each with a single bed, 1 floor bedroom with double bed and en-suite bathroom with shower, 1 further bathroom upstairs with shower, 1 guest toilet, large kitchen with a rustic oak table and all major domestic appliances, nicely decorated spacious living room, pellet stove, very high-quality living environment with free access to the kitchen and stairway to the two bedrooms. Utility room with solar thermal tank and Miele washing machine.
The house has been constructed between the outer stone wall and inner wall with Rockwool insulation, and together with the pellet stove and the solar thermal system, the house has qualified with an energy certificate of grade ‘A’ (second highest possible rating), and thus even in midsummer there is a pleasant room temperature, and this without air conditioning.
The outdoor area characteristics are the back (east side) paved, arched terrace with beautiful stone mosaic table and front patio (west side) with its big stone wall. There is a parking for several cars on the plot. The not yet landscaped garden has rear orange trees, olive trees and a fig tree.
The house is situated in a small village close to Ansião and Santiago da Guarda. In Ansião to the district where the village belongs to all infrastructural facilities (you will find supermarkets like Intermarché and discount stores, restaurants, swimming pool, medical services, Centro da Saude, hairdresser, banks and other service providers) available. The expressway IC 8 with terminal Ansião is reached in 5 minutes, eastwards leads to the natural river pools, the city of Guarda and the numerous lakes and recreational areas west to Pombal as nearest bigger town. Northward lies the old historic university city of Coimbra (approx. 35km) and southward the famous city of the Knights Templar, Tomar (approx. 50km). The Porto or Lisbon Airport is about 1.5 hours from the house when using the highway. The Atlantic beaches are also on the IC 8 easily accessible (eg. approx. 45 minutes of the broad and original dune beach Osso da Baleia). The region is due to the versatility both for a beach, swimming and hiking holidays and day trips with historic or cultural background.
