This property has been partially renovated to a very good standard by the current owner and the project offers an excellent opportunity to create a good sized 3 bedroom family home once completed. All major works have recently been completed including a new insulated roof, concrete flooring, replacement double glazed windows and first fit for all electrics and plumbing. The property is located close to the popular town of Lousã with views over the surrounding hills and countryside of central Portugal.
The property consists of 2 floors; the first floor includes divisions for a lounge, family bathroom, bedroom and kitchen. The internal staircase leads down to a further 3 divisions.
Entry into the property is via a gently sloping path from the upper off road parking area. To the front you have a very nice west facing terrace with views over the garden and surrounding countryside. The first floor lounge has 2 windows to the front, exposed stone walls and a pellet burner (for sale by separate negotiation). Divisions have been created to include a family bathroom to the front. To the back there are 2 further divisions, one could be a bedroom or dining room with views over the Serra da Lousã hills to the rear. The other division would make a wonderful light and airy kitchen with large picture windows to two sides and a patio door opening out to stone stairs leading down to a private walled courtyard, ideal for entertaining. The owner has a full kitchen ready to be fitted which is available by separate negotiation.
The internal staircase leads from the front door down to a further 2 internal divisions with exposed stone walls. A door at the bottom of the stairs leads out to a room which could be incorporated to extend the current accommodation with direct access to the private, walled courtyard. The walled courtyard has been fitted with drainage; a septic tank could be installed here if a bathroom is added to the ground floor. There are 2 further doors on this level which lead to the quiet lane running alongside the rear of the property.
The property is not currently connected to mains water or electric, however both utilities are very close by. The current owner has been quoted approximately 4,700€ to complete the utility installation to include all of the electrics, Tv & phone connection, gas and all plumbing. There is provision for drainage and sanitation to the front of the property on the first floor.
The property includes an off road parking area with space for 2 cars. Directly next to the front door there is a covered wood store and space for bottled gas. The flat garden extends to the front of the property and features a beautiful, mature orange tree. Once fenced this would create a nice, sunny garden area with views over the hills and countryside.
The house is situated on the edge of a quiet village, within walking distance of a local cafe/ restaurant. The pretty village of Serpins is close by and includes a river beach offering safe, fresh water swimming during the warm summer months with BBQ and picnic facilities making this an ideal family home or holiday rental (subject to the correct licences). This area is very popular with hikers and cyclists, for those in search of more adventure you have canoeing, mountain biking and rock climbing. Lousã is the closest town, only five minutes from the property. Lousã offers all your weekly facilities including schools, health centre, restaurants, supermarkets etc. The famous University City of Coimbra is an easy 40 minute drive.
