This property has been beautifully restored by the current owners who have created a stylish one bedroom house and separate comfortable one bedroom annex with access to a pretty, terraced garden area and integral garage. The property is located very close to the Roman ruins of Conimbriga which form part of the walled garden. This sought after location in central Portugal is close to Condeixa and the famous University City of Coimbra.
This property currently consists of the following:
Please note: The owners would also like to offer the option to buy both houses separately. The price for both properties together will be 145,000€ (negotiable). If sold separately the price for the main house would be 95,000€ (negotiable) and the price for the annex & gardens would be 60,000€ (non-negotiable).
Main House: The main house is semi-detached but has a private, walled courtyard with mature tangerine and orange trees and a nice space for al-fresco dining. A door to the side leads into a large modern kitchen/ dining room (26.2m2) with high vaulted, wooden ceilings. The fitted wooden floor units are arranged in an ‘L’ shape and include granite worktops, double sink, gas hob, electric oven and dishwasher. There is a separate useful space for extra storage and plumbing for a washing machine. A small hallway (6.3m2) has doors leading into the downstairs cloakroom (3.5m2) decorated with attractive mosaic tiles. The lounge (16.7m2) has a corner wood burner, windows out to the courtyard and a door leading to the road at the front of the house. A wooden staircase leads up to the main bathroom (5.2m2) with a bath, shower, sink, bidet and WC and the bedroom (16.5m2) with a vaulted wooden ceiling, built in wardrobes and windows to the side. The main house benefits from secondary double glazing throughout, hot water is provided by a gas boiler.
Annex: This self-contained house is located across the quiet access lane from the main house. Steps lead up in to pretty, private garden with a paved terrace directly in front of the annex. The front door leads directly in to an open plan lounge with a kitchenette (26m2). The bathroom (4.5m2) has a shower, sink & WC. The bedroom is a good size (10.5m2) and has a window to the front. The house has telephone and internet connected. Hot water is provided by an electric water heater located in the garage which also has plumbing for a washing machine. On the ground floor of the annex there is a large garage (47m2) with wooden doors opening onto the access road.
The annex offers an excellent opportunity to create a self-contained rental unit or holiday accommodation (subject to the required licence) which could generate extra income.
The main house was restored in 2009 and the annex was restored in 2011.
The terraced gardens to the front of the annex provide a private oasis surrounded by mature shrubs, grape vines, flowering plants and a variety of trees including Olives, Fig, lemon and pomegranate. Gravelled paths lead up to a paved seating area, perfect for enjoying the surrounding countryside and dramatic walled boundaries of the ancient Roman city of Conimbriga. The annex and gardens feel very private.
This property is perfectly located for anyone who enjoys outdoor activities including cycling and walking with tracks running alongside the ongoing excavations taking place in Conimbriga and extending into the woodlands beyond. There is a café/ bar with a bakery just a short walk from the house and the village of Condeixa-A-Velha provides 2 supermarkets, cafes and a petrol station. The larger town of Condeixa has all your local amenities including schools, banks, health centre, supermarkets, restaurants etc. Coimbra is an easy 15 minute drive and the beautiful coast line can be reached in 45 minutes making this an excellent property for commuters or for those in search of the natural beauty of central Portugal either as a comfortable home or lock up and leave holiday rental.
