Property Description

We present with pleasure to you, a traditional Portuguese styled property that is practically a brand new house, built with first class materials and all energy efficient methods to give the property an excellent (and rare!) Energy Certificate rating of A+. The house was built to the current and first owners’ specifications, so no corners have been cut in the construction and the property exhibits character, due in no small way to its owners and creators.

The front entrance to the property is through typical impressive double gates, noting as you proceed the sign that indicates the property is protected by a first class online security system. We enter through the door at the rear of the property, into the lower ground floor.

A good sized entrance hall, which leads of to the three, good sized double bedrooms, one currently used as an office, and the family bathroom . All of these rooms, unusually for Portugal , are of a generous size and the bathroom includes not only a shower cubicle but also a free standing, modern yet traditionally styled bath, again a rare occurrence in Portuguese homes. Note also the quality doors, frames etc and the former are large enough for wheel chair access.

This entire floor has the benefit of underfloor heating throughout and good, sized double glazed windows bringing a light and airy feel to this floor, and a traditional link through the tiles in the hallway area.

The second floor is approached via an impressive natural wood staircase and at the top you cannot fail to be impressed by what appears….a large, open plan living area, with lounge area, around the log burner, a dining area alongside a fully equipped modern kitchen with useful island working space, further cupboards and storage space. In addition there is a very useful walk-in larder/pantry for food and utensil storage and a cloakroom.

This floor also has the benefit of larger than usual, double glazed thermo-efficient windows on all aspects, all with shutters, plus an impressive cathedral ceiling, timber lined and increasing the overall feel of space in the room. And an important feature is the double glazed French Windows opening on to a practically full length balcony, placed there, South easterly direction, to soak up the early morning sun, over coffee and to take in the beautiful, uninterrupted view across the valleys and pine and cork oaks plantations. The house was constructed to maximise the view and with that, the peace and tranquillity prevalent in this beautiful part of Portugal.

Each floor occupies 82.5m2 area making 165m2 of living space in total.

Outside the main house is a large garage, currently large enough to house a full size campervan, but would obviously be large enough for two cars or more as well as a garden storage area.

The total area occupied by the buildings and garden is a little over 1,650m2 with the gardens consisting of established trees, shrubs, a garden pond and rocky terraces sloping away from the house, but the finest feature is a very old and productive cork oak, giving great character to this par of the garden.

PLEASE NOTE If somewhere close to the asking price is achieved the owners will consider including the vast majority of the good quality furniture etc

Marques is a tiny hamlet, with traditional houses and schist (granite) houses nearby, it’s nearest towns are Alvaiazere, the mainline railway station is a short distance away, taking you to Coimbra, Porto and the South Valley in the North, and Lisbon and the Algarve in the South. There are a number of modern traffic free roads and motorways within a very short distance.
