This substantial family house is located in a quiet village, close to the popular market town of Miranda Do Corvo. The house is detached with views over the surrounding mountains and countryside of Central Portugal. The property is in a habitable condition but does require some renovation and updating.
The property currently consists of:
Private sun terrace (36m2)
Land with Olive, fruit and Chestnut trees: 2700m2
The front of the property has neighbours close by but is surrounded by a high wall offering privacy. Double gates open into an off road parking area and large paved terrace. There are 2 good sized annexes located to each side of the house, these could be converted to create workshops, art studio’s or as an extension to the current accommodation (subject to the correct planning approval). The house is detached with land to both sides which gently slopes at the rear of the property. The land has a well and lots of mature trees including Olives, Fruit and Chestnut.
The main entrance to the property is on the ground floor with the front door opening into a good sized kitchen/ dining room. The kitchen has plenty of storage with wooden base and wall units, double sink, oven, hob and extractor and plenty of space for a family sized dining table and chairs. Patio doors to the rear flood the room with light and open out to a private sun terrace with fabulous views over the surrounding mountains and countryside. Next door to the kitchen is a fully tiled family bathroom with shower, sink and WC (this room is currently used as a utility room with plumbing for a washing machine). The open plan dual aspect lounge has patio doors to the rear extending out to the sun terrace. A central wood burning stove provides heating throughout the house. This room has been divided to include a good sized study with patio doors to the front of the property opening out to a slate paved terrace providing the perfect shady spot to enjoy al-fresco dining during the warm summer months.
Stairs lead from the lounge up to the first floor which includes three double bedrooms and a family bathroom; the spacious landing with original parquet flooring is currently used as a relaxing reading room, warmed by the sun and flooded with light. The hallway extends past a store room which has access to the loft space above. This space could be extended to provide a further loft style bedroom (subject to the correct planning applications). The hallway leads past the first bedroom which has a window to the front with views over the village and countryside. A chimney from the ground floor wood burning stove extends up through the bedroom providing heat to the first floor. The second bedroom has original parquet flooring and windows to the front and side with stunning views over the mountains. The third bedroom has partial wood panelling around the walls, laminate flooring and a window to the side. The family bathroom includes a bath with shower, sink and WC; there are more stunning views from the window to the rear. There is a door at the end of the hallway which would have been the original entrance to the property, this opens out to a stone staircase which leads down to the garden and land to the side of the property.
The property has double glazed windows and patio doors throughout. The house is connected to mains electric and water. Heating is provided by the central wood burning stove in the lounge. A Fosse system provides sanitation and the property is connected to Fibre internet.
The land surrounding the house is very fertile with a variety of mature trees which include Olives, Cherry, Pear, Peach, Plum, Apples, Orange, Lemon and Chestnuts. There is a well and plenty of space for anyone interested in growing their own! The land is very attractive and private with stunning panoramic views; ideal for the installation of a pool which would require the correct planning approval and licence.
