2 Stone houses for total renovation near Lousa in Central Portugal.
These stone properties are very old in need of total restoration and also have a lot of character; they have several divisions and is situated near to the market town of Lousa in a small village with a cafe and shop within walking distance.
The property is in 2 parts being sold together which could become one large house ideal for a rental property with the right mind set.
The Entrance is from the road into a courtyard which could be turned into a nice garden area
There is also a stairway here up to the main house.
Once at the top of the stairs there is a hallway with several rooms that are to be renovated which would make a large house currently.
Firstly a large lounge with double aspect windows and a good size room with lots of natural light leads out to a balcony with railings overlooking the neighbours land behind the property, and the courtyard below.
Next is the dining room , again a good size room with with a free standing salamander stove,
A bathroom with full size bath sink basin and wc is the family bathroom currently tiled and not in a bad condition although new pipework would be advised.
A second dining room is next; it has a tiled floor and window to the side of the property. This room then leads into the kitchen.
The kitchen has double aspect windows and tiled floor looking over the back and side of the property this room does need some attention as the exterior wall has large cracks and would possibly need rebuilding.
Next are the bedrooms with wooden flooring and ceilings, again needing some work to the ceilings and walls is needed..
There are wooden stairs to the attic with more usable space.
The 2 properties have a courtyard walkway between them that could be incorporated into a small garden or courtyard taking out the current trees to make more light.
This house appears older in style and has wooden ceilings and floors typical for the era of 1930’s.
The second house also has its own entrance from the road which leads into a large area known as an adega, generally used for wine making and dining, this leads to a hallway that runs the length of the property and has several rooms.
Here you will find the bedroom and bathroom, plus other rooms that make this property a good size house combined with next door it has the potential to become a great family home.
