DescriptionThis is a wonderful opportunity to purchase a private villa in a peaceful village location yet only a few minutes drive from the busy market town of Miranda do Corvo which has all the essential amenities.
Entry to the property is from a quiet road through double gates to a shaded pergola with parking for several cars. Steps from the garden lead up to an L-shaped covered terrace with beautiful views over the Serra de Lousa and from here there is access to all the rooms on this level.
Doors from the hallway lead to 2 double bedrooms, a family bathroom and the fully fitted kitchen. A glass paneled door from here leads into the lounge. All the rooms except the kitchen have central heating radiators and there is also a wood burning stove in the lounge. A glass paneled patio door from the lounge leads to the outside terrace.
From the terrace, stairs lead down to a large BBQ area which is shaded by grape vines and has a brick BBQ and a built in seating area. Two steps lead down to a beautiful paved terrace with a large curved swimming pool, a 5ft wall ensures total privacy. Separate guest accommodation beside the pool consists of a double bedroom and a utility area with a shower room off. There is also a huge adega with a built in bar area, currently used for storage but which has huge potential to create further accommodation. A doorway from the adega leads to a covered terrace with lovely arched windows, perfect for dining.
This property has several mature fruit trees and shrubs, a well maintained lawn and many areas where fruit, vegetables and herbs grow in abundance. There is also a separate wooded copse with several mature olive trees (this was originally purchased with the intention of keeping chickens). There is a pigeon loft with the potential to convert to kennels and another outbuilding houses a borehole and electric pump which powers the irrigation system for the garden.
Heating and hot water are provided mainly from the wood burner and solar panel but there is gas for back up.
All rooms have shutters and some have fly screens.
There is potential to build an internal staircase at minimal cost and link both floors to create a large family home.
A café and restaurant are within walking distance.
