This property is a country house that was totally rebuilt from a historic 19th century house in the typically Portuguese style of a ruin in 2015 and so far has all the comfort features of a new building.
It has many features such as the centrally positioned interior wall of rubble stone between the living room and the kitchen, a small veranda on the first floor and the external walls of broken stone are combined with modern energy equipment such as a fully automatic pellet cooker for the necessary heating of all rooms and a solar thermal system with a 300 litre tank for hot water supply.
It has an area of 120 m² distributed on a ground floor and above, 3 rooms with wardrobes, two bedrooms on the first floor with single bed and a bedroom downstairs with a double bed and en-suite bathroom with shower, 1 additional bathroom on the upper floor with shower, 1 service bathroom, large kitchen with rustic oak table and all the main appliances (fridge-freezer, dishwasher, induction hob, oven ) and microwave, spacious well decorated living room, salamander, very high quality living environment with free access to the kitchen and stairs to the two bedrooms. Pantry with solar thermal tank and washing machine. The house was built between the external stone wall and the internal wall with rock wool insulation, and together with the heat recuperator and the thermal solar system and thus, even in the middle of summer the ambient temperature is pleasant, and this without air conditioning. If the pellet stove is used, the pellets have to be bought by the guest - a 15 kg bag of pellets costs about 4 euros and heats the house for about two days.
As characteristics of the outside area we have an arched terrace with a beautiful stone mosaic table and front patio with its large stone wall. There is a car park for several cars on the ground. The garden is not yet landscaped and has orange trees, olive trees and a fig tree in the back.
