This grand, old property offers a unique opportunity for the new owners to restore the house to it's former glory, creating a fantastic family home with a large plot of land within walking distance of the centre of the popular town of Alvaiazere in central Portugal.
The house currently consists of:
1 sun room
Large loft space
Internal Garage space and cellar/ adega
9000 m2 of flat land with Olive grove and numerous fruit trees ( possibility for building further houses on this plot subject to planning approval)
The area around the property has benefited from a recent upgrade with a new Museum, landscaping, improved paving and roads. The house is located on a quiet road with excellent access to the centre of Alvaiazere and main motorway network of central Portugal resulting in a very desirable location.
The house has a walled garden and private driveway. The attractive, arched entrance is enhanced by the mature orange and lemon trees either side of the steps leading up to the front door.
The main door leads into the hallway (2m x 9.5m) with original wooden floors throughout and doors leading off to the lounge/ diner (5.7m x 2.9m) with windows to the side and front. Heating is provided by an open fire with original feature chimney.
There are four bedrooms off the main hallway:
Bedroom 1 (2,5m x 3.3m) has wooden floors and windows to the front and side offering views over the land and surrounding countryside.
Bedroom 2 (3.8m x 3.9m) has windows to the side.
Bedroom 3 (3.4m x 2.9m) window to the side.
Bedroom 4 (3.2m x 3.2m) lovely sunny room with windows to the side and rear.
The attractive sun room (2.9m x 4m) is bright and airy with windows offering panoramic views over the land and hills beyond the town centre. There is a door with access to the terrace which extends around the side and rear of the house.
The family bathroom (2.5m x 1.5m) is located at the end of the hallway and includes feature marble walls, bath with shower, bidet, sink and WC.
The kitchen (3.5m x 3.4m) is located to the rear of the property. There is a window to the side and door to the rear with access to the second bathroom and steps leading down to the land and adega below the house.
Internal wooden stairs lead up to the large loft space above the house and spacious cellar/ garage and storage areas below (9m x 12m). These floors could be adapted to create more accommodation if required.
This traditional property is west facing and commands a wonderful sunny location with views over the peaceful countryside. The house retains many original features including thick, stone walls, wooden floors and high ceilings but requires internal decoration and updating throughout. There are new double glazed windows with some external shutters.
The extensive land and around the property includes 65 + mature Olive trees and numerous fruit trees including orange, lemon, avocado, cherry, fig, nuts, plum, pear, tangerine and more! There are also 3 mature willow trees, a covered well, vegetable plot and animal sheds. This land could provide space for the construction of at least 3 properties (subject to the correct planning approval)
Once restored, this property would offer a substantial traditional family home full of charm and character.
