This impressive 5 bedroom property is located on the outskirts of a village near Ferreira do Zezere. The property is enclosed within boundary walls with decorative railings on top. Four sets of double gates give access to the property. The property is set back from the road with an area of mature trees in the front giving the feel of parkland. There is a wide calçadas driveway leading past the garages/annex to the main house and the calçadas continues around the house in a path and terrace.
The front door opens into a wide lobby with terracotta floor tiles. On the right is a door to the lounge and on the left, is a wide spiral staircase which leads to the first floor. The lobby leads to a long hallway which runs to the kitchen. A bathroom and dining room are on the right and the office and cloakroom on the left.
The large lounge (10m x6.5m) has triple aspect, with windows overlooking the front parkland, the land to the side of the house, where deer can be seen grazing, and over the rear of the house with views over the swimming pool. There is a door which leads onto the rear terrace. The lounge has terracotta floor tiles, a large open fireplace with wooden mantle, antique style light fittings and candle style wall lights. A door next to the fire place gives access to the log store which is filled from outside preventing the need to carry logs through the house.
The family bathroom (4m x 2m) has full height wall tiling and floor tiles. There is a large shower with marble tray, wc, bidet and vanity unit with marble top and counter top basin with mirror above. The bathroom benefits from fitted cupboards.
The long dining room (6.44m x 3.95m) has windows overlooking the rear garden and swimming pool. It has terracotta floor tiles and an antique style light fitting. It holds a table that seats 20 people.
The office (4.3m x 5.35m) has views over the front parkland, has terracotta floor tiles, a built-in bureau and an antique style light fitting. The cloakroom (2.55m x 1.6m) has a bidet, wc and vanity unit with two basins and mirror above.
The kitchen (8m x 5.6m) has a large range of fitted units with granite work tops and cupboards above. It benefits from a Hotpoint Ariston glass hob with extractor above, an Ariston electric oven and Bosch dishwasher. Along one wall is a fitted dresser unit. There is a pantry. The floor is tiled. A door leads to a utility room which has plumbing for a washing machine and a door leading to the outside.
The first floor, accessed by the beautiful staircase, has a large landing with polished hard wood floor and traditional wooden ceilings, which are features of all the upstairs rooms, and an antique style light fitting. The landing opens to a small snug/lounge (4.8m x 3.4m) which has doors to a balcony overlooking the back garden and swimming pool. It has an open stone fireplace with wooden mantle.
The landing opens onto a long hallway which leads to a family bathroom and five bedrooms, one with an en-suite. The family bathroom (4.1m x 2.1m) has full height wall tiling and a tiled floor and benefits from a bath with shower over, wc, bidet, vanity unit with marble top and two counter sunk basins with a mirror and lights above. There are also fitted cupboards.
Bedrooms 1 (4m x 3.25m), Bedroom 2 (4m x 3.65m) and Bedroom 3 (5m x 2.95m) all over look the rear garden and swimming pool and have antique style light fittings. Bedroom 4 (5.3m x 3.4m) over looks the front parkland. It has fitted wardrobes with cupboards above. Bedroom 5 (7.3m x 4.65m), the master bedroom with en-suite, has fitted wardrobes with cupboards above running the length of one wall. It has views over the front and side garden and a door leading to a balcony which also overlooks the front garden. The en-suite (3.15m x 2.36m) has a bath with shower over, wc, bidet, vanity unit with stone top and counter standing basin with mirror above. There is a fitted cupboard, full height tiling and floor tiles.
The main house has oil fired central heating with radiators in all rooms and bathrooms, green metal shutters on all windows, insect screen on most windows, double glazed, pvc coated aluminium windows stone window sills and a good range of power points in all rooms.
Leaving the main house through the door in the utility room you come to the old garage (6.54m x 5.58m) which has double glazed sliding doors and a tiled floor. There is light and power. This room has great potential. It could be a games room or converted to provide self-contained accommodation.
The garage/annex is an interesting building and could be used for any number of things. Currently it is set out as a very large garage (10.6m x 9.75m) with a tiled floor and double aspect windows with shutters and stone window sills and surrounds. It has two overhead doors and one has pedestrian access in it. There is lighting, power and water. This garage could be converted to provide a two bedroom apartment. Next door is a single garage (10.6m x 4.75m) with a tiled floor and double glazed windows with shutters over looking the land at the back of the property. There is a staircase with stone treads leading to a large attic which is divided into two parts each one with windows in the gable end. One section is 16.9m x 10.6m and the other is 9.75m x 10.6m. This has the potential to become further accommodation.
Next to the single garage is what I can only describe as a party room (10.6m x 11.90m). This enormous room is accessed by large double glazed folding doors. The room has granite floor tiles. On the right is a good range of kitchen units with granite worktops and cupboards above. There is a dishwasher, Ariston range cooker with 5 gas burners and an electric oven. There is an extractor above. There is a large granite banquet table with benches. An enormous brick Inglenook fireplace featuring a bread oven and BBQ is a feature of this side of the room. On the other side of the room is a rack of 7 wooden barrels and a large wine press with its equipment. There are two more banquet tables, both wooden, one has 26 chairs and the other benches. The room has antique stile light fittings. There is a small cloakroom with wc and basin which has full height wall tiling and floor tiles. Just so much potential here.
Outside: the property has 30,000 square metres of land, all enclosed, with deer. It benefits from a bore hole. There is an area of woodland, a large open field and a beautiful swimming pool (18m x 8m) which is surrounded by hedging for privacy. The pool machinery is in housing under the pool.
This is a property that must be viewed to appreciate everything that it offers.
