A spacious yet cosy two-story home with a separate garage and studio apartment, a sun terrace and a large flat garden with its own well. There is plenty of parking and a large cobbled area, all with far-reaching countryside views.
The house is in a peaceful and private location on a quiet country lane. Yet, neighbouring properties ensure you are not isolated and are only a ten-minute walk into the popular country town of Ferreira do Zezere.
The property was renovated 8/9 years ago with a lovely mix of modern and rustic styles. The property's ground floor was previously not used for habitation but now offers a beautiful, light, open-plan space. The rooves have been insulated and a second skin built on the west side of the property for extra insulation.
There is a sizeable open-fronted entrance hall with wood storage and a general utility area. You enter the main house via an entrance hall, a bathroom to the left, and the rest is open plan. To the left is a seating area, a dining area to the right and the kitchen at the end. You can enter the garden from the kitchen or turn left up the stairs to the 1st floor.
On the 1st floor, the layout remains the same, keeping the original wooden floor, doors, and ceilings.
The upstairs contains four bedrooms, the smaller of which is used as a walk-in wardrobe. The bedrooms are the smaller traditional Portuguese sizes. A kitchenette and dining area with the original fireplace, a bathroom, a lounge and a good-sized outside terrace make up the rest of the house. There are stairs down to the ground floor from each end of the property making it easy to have this as a self-contained unit if you would like, the internal stairs from the ground floor enter to the centre of the 1st floor and you could easily block off the kitchen and dining area with the newly tiled floor, walls and bathroom and 1 bedroom and have a 'studio' apartment for guests.
The property has central heating throughout, it runs from the enclosed wood burner in the kitchen, and the hot water is heated from wood burner or the solar panels, although there is a gas backup if required.
The property is set back from the road and has a wall along the front boundary. Double gates lead into the cobbled courtyard and garage.
The garage leads to a bathroom and stairs to a 2nd floor, a bedroom, and a good-sized terrace with beautiful views.
The garden is essentially flat. There are a good variety of established fruit trees, including orange, lemons, apples, peaches, and a huge chestnut tree that provides shade and chestnuts, eleven Olive trees and vines that provide eating grapes, and wine-making variety. The neighbors take care of the vines, and there is also a well for water.
Overall this property has so much to offer, it's easily big enough for a family home, and there are schools and all general facilities in Ferreira do Zezere. However, its style means it feels like a home and not too big for a couple. The gates to the property are electric, as are the garage doors.
There is a covered outside BBQ area with a built-in grill, chimney, and a marble bench and table. There is also an outdoor shower, and safe power points ensure your comfort when in these areas.
Ferreira do Zezere also has the Zezere river running very close by, and the 'Lago Azul' is a trendy summer swimming area. There are also a variety of water sports operating in the area.
The historical Templar town of Tomar is just 15/20 minutes away. This property is a fantastic opportunity for someone looking for a life change and a wonderful house to live in.
