3 bedrooms (one is currently used as a study)
2 bathrooms (one en-suite)
Modern fitted kitchen
Spacious dining room
Loft style lounge
Swimming Pool (6m x 3m)
1000m2 Land with mature trees, paving and rockeries

The modern fitted kitchen (3.5m x 3m) has been well designed with stylish base and wall units, siltstone worktops and integrated appliances including an induction hob. There is a useful utility room (1m x 2.4m) which houses the solar powered water tank, plumbing for a washing machine and further storage space. The large ground floor dining room (5m x 4.6m) includes the pellet burner which provides economical heating throughout the house; patio doors lead out onto a terrace to the front with steps leading down to the garden and pool area. There are 2 bedrooms on the ground floor; a spacious double (3m x 3.8m) with patio doors opening on to a pretty, private, terrace to the rear of the property with mature trees providing a cool, shaded area ideal for morning coffee! The second bedroom (2.5m 4m) is currently in use as a study, both rooms have fitted wardrobes. The elegant family bathroom (2m x 1.4m) is clean and fresh with neutral tiles, large shower, sink and WC.
First floor: Wooden stairs lead up to a large, loft style lounge (5.3m x 7.5m) with vaulted ceilings. Skylights create a light and airy feeling to this lovely room. The Master bedroom (4.2m x 4m) and smart, modern en-suite bathroom (2m x 3.2m) both have vaulted ceilings and skylights. There is also a useful storage room in the loft area next to the lounge.
Outdoor areas: The house is detached with traditional Calçada paved land to the front providing plenty of off road parking; there is a covered wooden car port, BBQ and shaded seating area made from the traditional stone commonly found in the central Portuguese countryside. There are a number of rockeries and mature trees and shrubs creating an attractive, low maintenance garden. The chlorine swimming pool is surrounded by a spacious paved seating area ideal for enjoying the warm, summer sunshine and stunning panoramic views over the surrounding countryside. There is a water catchment tank which holds 10,000 litres and housing for the pool equipment/ pump below the swimming pool terrace; a path leads round to a pretty Olive grove to the side of the property. Despite having neighbours close by, the property is very private but not isolated.
The current owners have arranged for the addition of a garden shed to the side of the property and paved terrace at the front, these should be in place by July 2018 and will be included in the price of the property. There may also be an opportunity to purchase an area of land measuring approximately 3000m2 to the rear of the property. This land does not belong to the current owners and would be by separate negotiation.
This house is ready to move in to and is beautifully presented throughout; this property offers the perfect family home or holiday rental accommodation which could generate a healthy income (subject to obtaining the correct licences)
