Traditional stone-built property situated in a small village between the market towns of Ansiao and Alvaiazere which is 6km away, it is in the county of Alvaiazere and Leiria district, Renovation 12 years ago included new floors and ceilings and a new insulated roof, double glazing was installed throughout the property.
The property is ready to move into.
The main entrance to the property is via a tiled terrace, it leads into the centre of the kitchen with the kitchen working area on the left and dining table on the right, there is a ‘Vulcano’ range cooker which serves both as a cooker and hob and also to heat the house, you can also run radiators from it but it is not currently plumbed in to do so.
From the kitchen you enter into the lounge which is a big room taking up the footprint on this level, the floor and ceilings are solid wood with lovely big beams making a feature of the ceiling, the rooms are very light with two of the windows overlooking the far distance valley views, there is also a full-size window to the side.
There is a wood-burning salamander with minimalist style chimney breast.
The wooden stairwell is situated in the rear corner of the room which leads both down to the ground floor or up to the bedroom, on this ‘middle’ level there is also a bathroom close to the stairwell, the bathroom is a little dated yet fully functional.
Moving up to the bedroom you enter a lovely light space with Velux windows in the roof, again there is wooden flooring and the ceiling is beautiful, there is a large window overlooking the valley.
This space has not been divided into separate rooms but it is plenty big enough to do so, it is a stunning bedroom with storage built into the roof eaves.
Following the stairs down to the ground floor you enter another large room with a raised, corner wood burning stove, the surround of this has not quite been finished, there are a couple of finishing jobs in this lower floor but it is very close to complete, there are two small rooms that are currently used for storage.
There is a door and two windows that lead onto the street, as the main entrance to the house is currently via the kitchen these serve simply to let light into the lower floor but with the installation of a bathroom/plumbing this ground floor could be a separate studio apartment for rent.
Likewise, it could simply be used for extra bedrooms, it is big enough to split into two.
1 large room with woodburning stove
2 smaller rooms
All the woodwork in the house was newly installed when the property was purchased by the current owners approximately 12 years ago, as was the kitchen.
The property has a footprint of 52.50 m2 (over 3 floors = 157.50m2) and the land covers an area of 1515.00m2.
The garden at the front needs some maintenance as the house is currently not lived in but this area is planted with a variety of shrubs and flowers which are well established.
Walking up the garden path from the street you can turn right onto the tiled terrace and the kitchen door, slightly further up the path, also on the right is a threshing circle, both the terrace and the threshing circle serve as seating areas, from here the long-distance views over the valley are very impressive.
Beyond the seating areas and on the left is a garden/woodshed and the path continues up to the land above which is currently planted with Eucalyptus trees.
Because this house is situated on a hill it would require some landscaping to turn this area into terraced gardens but it would not take long to do so, there is also car/4x4 access to the top of the land.
