Property Description

Three beautiful schist houses, full of character and charm.

Two fully renovated and one in need of renovation with the main house having an A+ rating for energy efficiency. Total tranquility, surrounded by forest and olive groves, this property is perfect as a lock up and leave or, if you are planning a permanent move, an ideal opportunity to generate a good income as a guesthouse/B&B.

The houses are nestled in the traditional part of the hamlet of Braçal, just 3km from the nearest river beach and 5km from Oleiros, the nearest town with all amenities such as shops, post office, leisure centre including indoor and outdoor pools, restaurants, health centre, banks and schools. Easy access to the houses on a cobbled road and access to Braçal via a regular tarmac road.

House 1: 220sqm has been fully renovated with natural materials and retains a lot of the original features. Unusually light and spacious schist house with double height ceilings in the living room and kitchen; 3 double bedrooms; spacious kitchen/dining room (custom made units with granite worktops, gas hob, electric oven); large family bathroom with separate shower and double bath; ample hallway and patio to the rear. All of the rooms are of a good size.

Sustainability: Thermodynamic system for hot water, central heating via the wood burner/radiators. Internet/phone connected. Connected to mains electric and water that comes from a spring and is gravity fed to the house. Very economical running costs of less than €100 a month for electric, gas, water, phone/internet, council tax and insurance.

Energy rating: A+

House 2: 100sqm habitational, in need of renovation although the walls are in fantastic condition. This house adjoins the patio to the rear of house 1. It has 2 floors and after consulting both an architect and builder, both said it could make a 3 bed, 3 bathroom house. Ideal as guest accommodation.

House 3: 40sqm habitational, located at the front of house 1 opposite the bathroom. This house has been fully renovated (the door to the lower floor is on order) and has electricity connected. With a full height ceiling above and a lower ceiling below, downstairs is ideal for storing firewood, whereas upstairs can be used as a studio, extra living space, or a guest room.
