Property Description

A wonderful opportunity to purchase a two storey house for total renovation in the hamlet of Portela Do Sesmo. This property is well situated within five minutes drive of the IC8, between the small towns of Serta and Pedrogao Grande in the centre of Portugal.

Placed in a pretty and peaceful small valley, with neighbours close by but not intrusive, ideally situated for someone wanting country living with major amenities close by.

With 2,480m2 of south facing land there is plenty of space to grow vegetables and keep animals.

A large meadow sits above the house and outbuildings, gently sloping down with several terraces to the bordering stream. There are mature fruit trees, two chestnut trees and a well producing orange tree amongst approximately 40 olive trees. A large water tank and borehole sit at the top of the meadow which could be used to irrigate the land. Along the stream there is an old watermill with all the workings still in place, could possibly be used to generate electricity.

The house itself is approximately 140 metres squared on two levels. The above mentioned outbuildings could be incorporated into the footprint when renovating, this would create a much larger living area. The back of the house is on a very quiet tarmac road and a drive way could easily be created along one side of the property. The house has electricity and mains water that would need updating and reconnecting.

As a bonus there is also permission to build a house on the upper meadow if required.

The hamlet has two cafes / bars, a mini market within walking distance and a builders merchants but 10 minutes away in either Serta or Pedrogao Grande there are numerous bars, cafes, restaurants, large supermarkets, banks and all your other amenities. There are several river beaches close by including Mosteiro and both the Cabril and Bode lakes other fantastic water sports and other activities.

A little further afield (within one hours drive) are the bigger towns of Castelo Branco, Tomar, Coimbra, Abrantes and the sea side resort of Figueira Da Foz. Both Lisbon and Porto are around a two hour drive away.
