Property Description

Spacious two-storey period farmhouse, with a footprint of 250m2, set in a plot of land with 5,100m2, with a beautiful garden, orchard, garage and several outbuildings.

In perfect decorative order, with all the character and charm of a traditional period property, yet adapted to the requirements of modern living, this property was registered with the land registry in 1937, but possibly built in the latter half of 19th century. It has been renovated over the years by the current owners, using high quality building materials, to create an exquisite property offering much comfort and privacy.

Located in a quiet village location but close to the villages of Cernache do Bonjardim and Sertã for all local amenities, and the Zezere River for all its river beaches, this period country property has huge potential for rural tourism or as a permanent residence.
Arranged over the first floor are a fitted kitchen, with wooden cupboards and granite worktops, an induction hob and oven, a fridge and a fire place, 2 living rooms, 4 double bedrooms and luxurious bathroom with bathtub, sink and bidet.

A beautiful staircase with granite steps leads to the basement and the roadside main entrance/front door. In the basement, there are several rooms with own access from the outside: a traditional wine cellar, a boiler-room with the central heating system, both wood-fired and oil-fuelled as well as two large-sized storerooms (one of them contains large clay pots once used to store olive oil).

From the kitchen a flight of stairs leads to the second floor, which could be used as a fully independent living space for holiday lets, to lodge guests, or as a living area for older teenage or adult children. It has a large living-room, 3 bedrooms, a kitchen (with pre-installed plumbing but no other fittings), bathroom with shower, sink, toilet and bidet, and a stunning roof terrace with beautiful panoramic country views.

All exterior windows are in lacquered aluminium and double glazed, with thermal blinds.The house also has a pre-installation for solar water heating and photovoltaic solar panels.

At the back of the main house, a covered patio area provides parking for several vehicles, and has a barbecue with a long worktop and a shower room. There is another separate car port for two more vehicles, a garage, and an outbuilding with a workshop and two rooms to store firewood and agricultural equipment. One of the storerooms has a traditional bread oven. In the uncovered patio area there is also a chicken coop, water tanks for crop irrigation and a well.

The large, beautiful, and well-maintained garden has many flowers and ornamental trees. In the agricultural area, grapevines in a trellis mark the boundaries of the property and surround almost all of the land. On this plot of farmland, there are many olive and fruit trees (cherry, peach, apple, fig, tangerine, plum, pomegranate, pear, kiwi, sharon fruit). The soil is fertile and the area benefits from an irrigation system which draws an abundant supply of water from both a well and a borehole.
