First Floor:A door from the path opens into the pretty courtyard with steps leading up to the terrace or down to a patio area. The terrace (11m x 1.5m) stretches along the full length of the house with doors leading into the Lounge, Kitchen and Storeroom. The lounge (5.5m x 4.3m) benefits from an open fireplace and 2 windows with views over the surrounding countryside. Doors from the lounge give access to the 2 bedrooms (2.7m x 2.5m) and (2.6m x 2.6m) on this floor. Access to the kitchen (5m x 3.5m) is also from the terrace, the kitchen features ceramic tiled floors, wooden vaulted ceiling, exposed stone wall and a large stone built bread oven. The kitchen has a sink, gas water heater, free standing oven and a fridge which are included in the sale price. Next to the kitchen, a door opens from the terrace to a large storeroom which houses the borehole pump and water storage tank and is also currently used for storing firewood.
Ground Floor:Steps from the terrace lead down to a sunny patio area and the rooms on the ground floor, the largest of which is the master bedroom (5.7m x 3.7m) with exposed stone walls and an original livestock trough which is now used as storage. The bedroom has a window and a door gives access to a small terrace which overlooks the countryside to the front. Next to the bedroom is the bathroom (5.5m x 2.2m) with a large shower, w.c, bidet and basin. There is a further storeroom (2.7m x 2.4m) on this floor, handy for storing gardening tools etc.
Outside: The patio area is very private, surrounded by low stone walls and planted borders; the ideal spot for relaxing in the sun. Steps from the patio lead up to a lovely outdoor dining area with a large slate table and benches covered by a canopy of grape vines and kiwi fruit; providing plenty of shade for al-fresco dining. The garden continues from the dining area, a slate pathway winds through a collection of over 30 fruit trees, including lemon, orange, pear, apple and lime. The garden is fenced and has its own irrigation system.
Separate stone built house requiring renovation: Approximately 30 metres from the property is a stone built property (50m2). The building has a small terrace, 2 internal divisions and a bread oven. This building requires complete renovation but once this is carried out it would make a fantastic self contained rental property.
The main house and the stone house can be sold separately if required. In this case the main house is priced at 75,000€ and the stone house at 25,000€
