MAIN HOUSE IN DETAIL:
A gravel driveway leads to the back of the house which has lovely views across the surrounding countryside and an old threshing circle which makes a great patio. A door leads to a cosy room which has plumbing for a washing machine. This room would make a great utility room, breakfast or dining room, or a cosy snug. This room leads to the huge open plan family area, an L shaped room with the kitchen, dining and lounge areas. The kitchen has a good range high gloss white units and dark contrasting worktops and a large island. Gas hob and electric oven. There is wiring for an extractor fan. From the dining area a door lead to the staircase to the first floor. The lounge area has the log burner, a patio doors to the garden and a doorway leading to bedroom five with en-suite. There is also another door leading to the garden from bedroom five. The en-suite has a WC but requires the other sanitary ware.
The staircase leading to the first floor is concrete and requires finishing with stone treads.
On the first floor there are four double bedrooms. The master has an en-suite which currently has a WC but requires the other sanitary where to be installed. A door leads from the Master bedroom to the south facing roof terrace. There is a family bathroom which has a bath, WC and vanity unit. It has a built-in cupboard. This bathroom has a door to bedroom three and a door to the hall. There is a door in the hallway which opens onto a balcony and steps that lead down to the garden where there is an entrance to the road.
I have been advised that depending on the finishes required the cost of completing the renovations of the main house will be in the region of €6000 - €8000.

STONE COTTAGE IN DETAIL:
A stone staircase leads to the main living accommodation which is on the first floor. A door opens into a living room. There are two bedrooms off the living room. A door leads to a lobby. A door leads off to bedrooms either side. One of these rooms would be needed for a bathroom. There is a staircase from one room to the attic. The attic is dry and there is no sign of damp problems or leaks. From the lobby there is a staircase down to the adega and old kitchen. The adega is a good size and will make great storage but does not have the head height to convert to usable living accommodation. The roof of the old kitchen has collapsed and needs replacing. There is a bread oven at one end. This is a good size room and would make a great kitchen dining room. A door leads to the back garden. Behind the house is a lovely courtyard area.
I have been advised that the cost of renovating this cottage will be between €32,000 and €40,000 depending on what is required and the finishes chosen.
Since the photos were taken the rubbish has been removed from the stone house.
There is an open fronted barn which would make a great outside kitchen and entertainment area. Behind the barn are some old buildings which were for storage or animal sheds. There is a detached garage of 32 m² which has a concrete floor and a mezzanine area. There is a door to the garden. This building also has the potential for habitation subject to permissions.
The land itself is overgrown and requires cleaning. It has two large flat terraces with numerous fruit trees including olive, orange, lemon, fig, cherry, plum, apple, nespera and pomegranate. There are three wells. The land is fenced or walled on three sides and there is a clear boundary at the bottom.
The property is about 3 km from Alvaiazere where there is everything one needs for day to day living and a weekly market. It is about a 15-minute drive to the A13 motorway which provides fast links to Tomar, Coimbra, Lisbon and Porto.
