Tranquil but central (8.5 km from Ansião).
This is a sympathetic renovation. The large rooms create a feeling of space and peacefulness. No neighbours. The property is framed with olive groves. Secluded but not isolated. Daytime temperatures seldom fall below 15c and indeed during most of the spring, summer and autumn hover around 20-30C+, ideal for enjoying the garden and pool and the many walks around the village.
The ground floor is a large open plan area with a fully fitted kitchen area leading to the dining and lounge areas - a great room for entertaining guests. There is also a downstairs combined bathroom and utility room and a small storage room.
Upstairs, there are 3 double bedrooms (two with quality built-in full-height wardrobes) one en-suite (with shower) and a full-sized family bathroom. This floor features another large lounge area, overlooking the garden and pool. Patio doors lead to the balcony, with a small flight of stairs down to the pool area.
The large, flat gardens have been landscaped with easy maintenance in mind; lime, lemon, plum, orange, cherry, apricot and olive trees grace the garden. Wide terraces surround the large pool (5 x 10m) – recently converted to salt water (natural chorine). There are new summer and winter covers for the pool. The large driveway (parking space for 5 cars), wood store, pump house, outside area for dining, and storage rooms further complete the garden area.
The property is very secluded, situated at the end of a quiet country lane with easy access and little passing traffic, in a calm and picturesque area with lovely views to the distant mountains. The valley is called the valley of 'thousand year oaks', and has been given the status of 'National Park'. The cork oaks (protected by law) are of particular interest. There are around 100 or so in the area.
The windows are double-glazed with bespoke interior sun-blinds 25-100%, and insect-screens throughout. With central heating, two solar panels for hot water in the summer, two wood burners, mains water, telephone and internet this home is ready to be lived in and enjoyed. The local 'phone company MEO, promises a fibre-optic connection from November. The 'store room' and outer 'eating' space (at the end of the garden), could easily be converted into an annex or studio. The store room remains cool in the heat of the summer. The outside area benefits from both water, drainage and electricity. The four market towns of Ansião, Alvaiázere, Avelar and Almoster, where there are plenty of amenities, are all accessible in a few minutes by car. From Pombal there is a fast train service to Porto and Lisbon.
Features: Large salt pool, mature garden, garden irrigation system. The water comes from the 'posso' (topped up from mostly roof-water), recently decorated, furnished at no extra cost, with a well-equipped kitchen (gas hob – electric oven – fridge freezer, microwaves and dishwasher) and bathroom downstairs/ combined with a utility room (washing machine and tumble dryer).
