Property Description

A substantial, double fronted stone built house with 190m2 approximately of usable covered areas, around 130 years old and has many original interesting features including
original doors, a chandelier, stained glass, exposed stone. Accommodation comprises of: Large stone steps to the main entrance hall with double external doors and double internal, stained glass gothic doors, large central hallway, with two living rooms off, a bathroom with shower, bath, bidet, washbasin and WC. At the rear of the house is a large dining room, open plan modern kitchen with large amounts of storage and worktop space and walk in storage (used for a tall fridge –freezer
presently), plus a separate outdoor pantry and another shower room with WC, and a second small rear hallway for plants, boots, etc. In addition to this generous space, each living room has a separate room attached, which may be used as a study, media room or walk in storage. Upstairs are three double bedrooms (one with walk in wardrobe) and access through double doors to the rear upper terrace with views over
the rooftops to the historic castle and the hills beyond, and a wooden staircase to the roof, via a Velux for fresh air and fire escape.

In the last 12 months the property has benefited from a significant refurbishment, including a new handmade kitchen (Fernandes and Martins) and all new appliances (Ikea); new “intelligent” gas boiler with new flues and safe gas storage (Fundicalor), solid fuel central heating, electrical rewiring to include light and power to the cellars (Carlos Coelho), professional woodworm treatment (Fundambiente), some
new internal walls and ceilings, LED lighting throughout, smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, thermal insulation, roof renovations, installation of velux window / fire escape, redecorated throughout to include preservation of external wooden windows.

Telephone, satellite TV, mains electricity, mains water and sanitation are all connected.

Further improvements are expected for the coming 12 months, the cost of the house will reflect improvements as they are completed (the price will increase), early interest will secure the best price and we are open to negotiation.

Outside space of 24m2 total. At the rear of the house is a well proportioned outside courtyard with high walls giving good privacy and storage for firewood etc. A lockable door connects the terrace to the rear street for discreet access and getaways. Stone steps lead down to two large “lojas” or cellars, with power, light, washing machine plumbing, secure metal postbox. Parking is on street for several cars if needed, motorcycles and bikes may be driven off street straight in to the cellar.

Located in the centre of a historic village, close to the A23, Alpedrinha and Fundao yet has an enviable, open aspect onto the Gardunha mountains. Local facilities include three bars, a café, a well known and respected restaurant, an outreach health centre, tourist information centre and a wonderful praia fluvial (river beach) which is accessible all year round but at its best in the summer months, with free access and a café / bar. Markets and festas happen throughout the year and mobile shops visit most days.

Presently rented until January 2019, this house would make a
wonderful home for one or two families (with two living rooms and two bathrooms) or make a terrific investment for a buy to let investor wishing to capitalize on the increasing number of foreigners moving to this area of Portugal.
