DSK250: Quinta das Estrelas
1ha plot of land with a renovated stone house, 23m2 workshop, block built woodshed & tool lock up, plus 2 caravans.30 different species of trees, south-facing land & fantastic views.
This is a jewel of a property, perfect for a couple, or small family interested in sustainable living and farming/gardening on a domestic scale.
The view from the south-facing house is spectacular- over the Serra d’Açor and Serra d’Estrela.
1ha of south-facing terraced land, with magnificent granite walls and boulders, there are more than 40 olive trees and over 30 different species of fruits, nuts and vines.
The main water source is an abundant well, never known to run dry, with both solar and mains pumps. There is pine and a mixed woodland which provides all the necessary firewood.
The compact and cosy 2 bedroom house was reconstructed from the original granite farm buildings.
Built by the owners for themselves, it is well insulated and well finished using as many sustainable or recycled materials as possible with a lot of wood in the construction. Doors and windows are double-glazed aluminium. Heating is from a central woodstove that heats the domestic hot water (there is additional water heating from solar) and upstairs radiators by thermosyphon, (no pump or electrics needed). The roof is new, and well insulated, topped with the original handmade tiles to keep the original rustic look on what is basically a new house.
There is a 23m2 workshop attached to the house, block-built woodsheds, a tool lockup, and 2 caravans. Electricity is mains supply, and the internet is a fast fibre optic connection.
The last house in the village, nestled in the crook of the valley, it is sheltered and secluded. There is easy access via a choice of two tracks about 100 metres from the tarmac road. It is within easy walking distance of the centre of Póvoa de Midões which has cafés and a shop, about 4km from Tábua with supermarkets, bus connections, an excellent builders merchant, and 15mins from Santa Comba Daõ with its Rail link to Coimbra, Porto and Lisbon.
