VILLAGE HOUSE TO RENOVATE CLOSE TO CASTANHEIRA DE PERA
Situated in a village just a few minutes from Castanheira de Pera this detached house with two floors needs renovating but could be transformed into a lovely home.
The garden area at the front of the property would make a lovely walled courtyard and here there is a two-story storage building with a terrace once used to house animals and store wood. It may also be able to park a car in this area. Also to the side of the main property is a stone building in ruin.
Through the front door and the wide wooden staircase, which the whole of the ground floor of the house is built around, is directly in front of you. The stairs lead us to the 1st floor where we can find 4 rooms which could be configured to your liking. There are lovely views from here so you may wish to use one as a lounge or perhaps it would make sense to move the bathroom to this floor.
On the ground floor, there is a small kitchen, sitting room, adega, and bathroom. Again these rooms could be configured to meet the needs of the occupier.
There is a door at the back of the house that leads to the garden which can also be accessed from the lane on the other side of the property. The garden has some olive trees and again lovely views. There is an outside kitchen here containing the old bread oven which could still be serviceable.
The property is within walking distance of the village cafe. Castanheira de Pera is close by where there are supermarkets, a bank, a post office, and many shops restaurants, and cafes. There is also a market here every week too.
The local river beaches are varied, with natural swimming holes, waterfalls, and of course the fabulous Praia das Rocas. There are some wonderful places to explore in the area on foot or maybe two wheels.
