The house is set on two floors and has a footprint of 300 square meters. The house needs complete renovation. The property is connected to both mains electricity and water and has water for irrigation purposes from the well. The property is walled to one side and fenced to the other sides.
The entrance to the property is either via the double iron door of the large garage on the corner of the lane, or from the entrance gate at the bottom of the garden. The garage could be converted into a reception area.
A few feet away from this building and next to the wall of the courtyard we walk up a set of stone steps and onto a traditionally covered veranda with good views into the countryside. From here we enter the first floor of the house and into a den. To the left there is a small living room, while to the right there is a bedroom. From the central living room there is a door to an l-shaped corridor. To the left of this corridor, there is a door to a larger room which was lately used as storage and from which there is access to two small bedrooms.
The corridor then carries on onto a covered veranda. There are good views into the countryside from here. At the far end of the veranda, to the left, there is a door to what was used as the dining area, to a pantry, and to the very rustic kitchen. Up front from the corridor, we have the very basic bathroom.
From the veranda, there are stone steps down into the courtyard. From the courtyard we have several doors to the ground floor rooms, which have all been used for storage purposes. These rooms could easily be converted into more living space.
In the courtyard, we have another building which could also be converted into more living space. This building is built back-to-back with the garage and used to house animals.
There is a nice plot of land, set on two levels, with a big well on the upper level and good fertile earth. The spot around the well would make for a lovely terrace for al fresco dining. There are a good number of fruit trees in the garden.
This property would lend itself perfectly for a large family home or a bed and breakfast business.
The property is located in a little hamlet in the area of Pedrógão Grande, and, although situated on a lane, is in a peaceful private setting yet easy to find.
The town of Pedrógão Grande, which has shops, supermarkets, banks, cafes, schools and restaurants is 11 kilometers, a 15 minute drive from the property.
The Cabril lake, a dam of the river Zêzere, is only a short drive from the property. Cabril lake, although a reservoir, constructed in 1954, is popular for all kinds of water sports including fishing, swimming, sailing and canoeing. There are a number of river beaches within easy reach. The property is easy to locate and has good access to the IC8 dual carriageway.
The closest airport to the property is located at Porto, which is approximately two hours´ drive. Porto airport is located north of the city and is serviced by several low cost airlines, which operate regular flights into and out of the United Kingdom. Lisbon airport, which is approximately 189 kilometers away, takes around two and a half hours' by car.
