Three river cottages to restore in Castanheira de Pera
This property has three stone houses that needs a total renovation, they are all in stone and the river/stream is flowing by just outside the windows and the garden. At the moment there is one main house on two floors and one ruin behind, these two are classed as habitation, there is a third stone building which is classed as storage but sits on urban land, so would be possible to turn this house into habitation after checking with the local town hall. The location is very charming at the end of the small village, the stream flowing by and the bridge to take you on to several walks makes this property ideal to either restore to a family home or to make it into rentals.
Main house of 78m2 starts with a garden in a corner and follows around, opposite the front gate is space for a few cars under the roof of wines. The main house is on two floors all in stone, ground floor was only used for animals and storage and top floor has at the moment a living room, three small bedrooms, from the veranda you reach the kitchen with an open fireplace, the toilet and the third bedroom. This plot is all walled and fenced, but you can reach the stream from this part, a few fruit trees are growing in the garden.
The second house of 25m2 is classed as habitation is behind the main house and has its own entrance and a small patio, this house is almost in ruins and need as well a total renovation.
The third house of 70m2 is classed as storage and is also made in stone and has a sloping roof, very charming. To turn this house into habitation a request into the local town hall is necessary, and it sits on urban land.
