This first floor, keeps the typical characteristics of a traditional House from the ancient times when it was built, where all spaces were divided so it may host large families. So, there are many rooms, which may now be redrawn and adapted to modern times. For example, demolishing some interior walls, in order to obtain wider comfortable spaces. On this part of the House, we can see that the floor built in wood, although in good condition, on the main structure, needs to be renovated in some areas. For it will be necessary to proceed to the replacement of some parts. The ceilings, also built in wood, are in good condition, considering the age. The kitchen needs to be renewed and modernized, in a way that makes it more practical and functional. Being advised to demolish a small wall that divides the main area to another space, where there is an ancient fireplace, obtaining this way, a bigger and more comfortable space. The bathroom, with bathtub, is quite spacious and in very good condition considering the age.
In General, we can say that this House, despite the age, keeps the main structure in very good condition. The walls, built in stone, remain steady and stable and the roof also presents itself in good condition.
This property includes a plot of land in the back, where there are several fruit trees, especially Orange and lemon trees. This land is not very large, but is relatively private and allows the construction of a swimming pool, for example, in addition to maintaining a nice garden around. In this yard, there is also a well, with spring water, which might serve to the pool and to water the garden.
The House has water and electricity connection from the company, but it will be necessary to modernize the pipes and connections.
This is an excellent opportunity for those seeking a traditional Portuguese House, Bourgeois style, right in the Centre of a typical Portuguese small town.
