Detached Property for Renovation with land and River Views near Penacova

Central Portugal Penacova Curral de Alem, Carvoeira


Located on a hillside overlooking the beautiful Mondego River, this fantastic renovation project offers a wonderful opportunity to create a good size home in a sought after area of central Portugal.


The house does require vision but currently offers accommodation over three floors with panoramic views and pretty land to the side and rear of the house which includes a number of Olive and fruit trees.


The property currently includes:


Ground floor:

3 Divisions

Basic bathroom


First floor:

Sun room/ hallway

Basic Kitchen extending into further room


2 Divisions

Family bathroom

2 Bedrooms


Second floor:

Sunny terrace

Large Attic room


Access to the property is either from the main road at the rear of the house where a gate leads to a pathway with steps down and into the land or to the side there is a further pathway running down alongside the land which extends down to the front of the property.


A door at the front of the house leads into a terraced area with access to the ground floor rooms and steps to the first floor, further stone steps lead from the first floor through the pretty garden to the second floor with stunning views from the large sunny terrace.


The first floor opens into a bright hallway (6m x 1m) with windows extending along the front of the house, making the most of the stunning river views.

To the left you have a basic kitchen with sink (2m x 3m) which extends into a second room (2.6m x 2.7m) with a bread oven and door opening out to the pretty side garden. These rooms could be combined to create a good sized kitchen diner.



Two rooms lead from the hallway (4m x 3m) (4m x 2m). These rooms could be connected to create a master bedroom. The family bathroom (2.4m x 1.7m) includes a bath, shower, bidet, W.C and sink.


The lounge is a good size (3.6m x 4.3m) and includes a Juliet balcony with views over the river. There are 2 further rooms leading off at the rear of the lounge, (2m x 3m) (3m x 2 m). These rooms could be combined to create a beautiful, light and spacious reception room. There is a third room extending from the side of the lounge which would make an ideal study. There is space on the first floor to include an internal staircase linking the ground and second floor divisions.


On the second floor you have an attic room with vaulted ceiling and a large, sunny terrace to make the most of the stunning location.


The house is connected to electricity and water but all utilities would need to be updated.


The terraced land extends round the side and rear of the property. The pretty garden directly next to the house would make a wonderful kitchen garden. The land behind the house includes several Olive and fruit trees and a small stone out- building which would make a great summer house or storage area.


The elevated position of this house and sloping land may make access difficult for anyone with mobility issues.


The house is located above a small village within walking distance of a café. The pretty riverside town of Penacova is close by and offers all your weekly facilities including a post office, banks, health centre, supermarkets, schools, restaurants, cafes etc.


This is a great location for anyone who enjoys water sports; the Mondego River is popular for canoeing, paddle boarding and swimming. The location is also popular with walkers and cyclists who can enjoy exploring on surrounding woodland tracks. The local restaurants provide well priced traditional cuisine. This is a wonderful area for rural tourism or for anyone who seeks the delights of the beautiful central Portugal countryside.


There is an excellent road network linking this area to the famous University City of Coimbra which has a mainline train station, bus station and access to the motorways extending throughout Portugal.
