This charming, traditional, partly renovated, Portuguese house is in a small picturesque village just 15 minutes drive from Tomar. The property sits on top of the hill with nice mountain views and is very private with no immediate neighbours, yet, just a two minute walk to the local shop and café. The property is set in lovely land of 2680 square metres with plenty of fruit trees and olive trees. The land is registered as urban so installing a swimming pool should not be a problem.
A gravel track leads to the property and double gates open onto an area where there is plenty of parking. A high stone wall, which once formed part of a barn/animal sheds creates privacy for the house. It should be possible to rebuild these and with permission create additional accommodation for the house as they are incorporated in the registered footprint of 174 square metres.
The house itself is currently set out as a large open cellar (7.8m x 6.88m) with a good head height of 2.55 metres. On the first floor there is a kitchen/living room (4.17m x 3.32m) with an old chimney with bread oven. Off the kitchen is a small room (3.2m x 2.33m). A hallway (5.27x 1.18m) leads to four bedrooms. Most rooms retain the original wooden doors and shutters. The property has a new insulated roof which has been constructed using a new reinforced concrete ring beam, Marselha tiles with eucalyptus timber, and gradient barrier 3cm roof mate insulation and the work was carried out by the established company Silver Coast Constructions. The installation was done using a supporting roof pillar which means the internal walls can be removed and a new layout created, and internal staircase installed incorporating the cellar and first floor into the main house.
The external walls have been rendered & paintedand a new septic tank installed. Electricity is connected and connection to mains water has already been paid for. A one metre deep dampproof membrane has been installed. Guttering has been fitted.
The property is now waiting for a new owner to complete the renovations and bring the house back to its former glory.
Tomar is about an hour and a half from Lisbon and two hours from Porto both of which have good links via the motorway network. Tomar has everything that is needed for day to day living including a university, hospital, supermarkets and schools. It also boast the Convento do Cristo which is part of the reason that Tomar is a world heritage site.
