Property Description

Lovely renovated village house with large garden and roof terrace, set in the sought after village of Barril de Alva.

Situated in the centre of the village, this solid rural property enjoys far reaching views, and has sufficient land for a good sized garden and growing area. Located just around the corner from the local cafe/shop, and just a few minutes walk on a quiet path to the Steiner School.

Arriving from the front door into a spacious and cool lounge, this room has doors on both sides, and retains character with the original beams. The rear glass door leads down to the garden, whilst the wooden staircase takes you to the second floor of the house.

This floor comprises a large kitchen/dining room, two good sized bedrooms and the bathroom.

The kitchen/dining room is flooded with natural light, having windows on three sides, and opens to the roof terrace. The owner has recently installed a log burning stove (with oven), which ensures the space is warm and cosy throughout the colder months. The room has high ceilings with original panelling. It has wooden base cabinets with open shelving, and can comfortably accommodate a large dining table.

Both of the double bedrooms are of a good size, with original recessed shelving features. The front bedroom is currently furnished as a children’s room, whilst the rear also has a recessed cupboard with glass doors and beautiful views to the hills beyond.

The bathroom currently has a shower cubicle, with bath on site ready to install, toilet, bidet, sink and washing machine.

The roof terrace is accessed either from the kitchen or from steps up from the narrow street. It has a recently built pergola, and is extremely sunny throughout the year, with spectacular views across the hills and mountains beyond.

The garden can be accessed either through the large storeroom underneath the house, which has doors to the street, or directly from the steps leading off the lounge. It is arranged on two flat levels.

The upper level has a lawn area, surrounded by flower beds, with an adjacent paved patio. Here we have a mature orange tree, always plentiful in fruit, two figs and an elder tree. Steps lead down to the large piece of land below, suitable for growing – having been cultivated on one side. There are various young fruit/olive trees.

Between the open storeroom (underneath the roof terrace) and the lounge, is a partly renovated interior room with it’s own front door. This could connect either with the storeroom or the lounge, and therefore offers the possibility to create a third bedroom, or conversion into an apartment for rental income.

White flooring has been laid throughout the house in 2015, aside from the tiled bathroom. The house has mains water, mains electricity, broadband internet connection and telephone.

There are drinking water fountains at either end of the street, and the river is just a short ten minute walk away. This takes you to the location of the popular cafe and restaurant, and location of the popular monthly Barril market.

Urtigal, the beautiful child friendly river beach, is further along the track.

Coja is a ten minute drive, whilst Oliveira de Hospital and Tabua are no more than half an hour away.
