This immaculate property was designed and built in 2007 – immaculately presented inside and out.
Built over 2 storeys (each 10m x 10m), the main building incorporates two houses; each with two double bedrooms. From its charming wrought iron, elevated balconies, providing stunning views over the Alentejo countryside; to the Mediterranean styled tree-shaded terraces, this property boasts a light, bright and airy feel, underlined by the traditional yet modern, interior touches. An absolute breath of fresh air – having etched a special place in my mind. It would more than suit a yoga/writing/artistic retreat, owing to its private and tranquil ambience. The 4 paddocks are enclosed and the barn could stall up to four horses. Fields and barn are supplied with water – additionally, the barn has power. There is also a separate, flat area which could easily be transformed into a sand arena and/or additional barn/large stable block, next to the large wooden shed (3m x 3m) for storage, power and water. This property, therefore, would also suit a horse lover: having a land area of 2.8 ha of undulating natural terrain. Shade is provided in the mature olive grove.
The land and the gardens are also a credit to the vendor, being very well kept and maintained; gardens are irrigated. Water is supplied from its own private borehole – the house water system is also linked to a further borehole as a backup. There are also 2 separate gas boilers heating the water to each house, linked to separate pipework and gas cylinders.
The top storey of the house is occupied by the present owner with a private access, up gentle steps to the side of the house leading to a large appendary. The hallway has space for coats, storage and a separate WC. In its no expense spared interior, the house is lavishly finished off with light oak wood throughout with matching double glazed, oak coloured windows and shutters. The kitchen affords a luxury feel, with beautiful granite topped bespoke oak kitchen units, built -in fridge and ample storage. The spacious open plan lounge / dining area, lends itself to the double aspect windows, providing stunning views. The patio doors open onto a generous balcony overlooking the gardens. The second balcony is through the master bedroom, itself a very spacious room with very large built in wardrobe with hanging and storage. Again, with double aspect windows overlooking the rolling hills and valleys. The views from here are amazing: over the Alentejo farmlands and the whitewashed towns and villages in the distance beyond. The balconies are large enough to enjoy breakfast in the morning, or a sundowner in the evening.
The large modern equipped bathroom serves both bedrooms, comprising: bath, shower, sink with large store cupboard. The lounge has a woodburning stove and both bedrooms have large, fitted modern light oak wardrobes which are nicely finished off with a modern silver coloured trim.
The cleverly designed living accommodation on the lower level is of equal quality, all beautifully decorated to the same high standard. The kitchen is fully fitted with built in fridge and hob, wood burning stove in the lounge, two double bedrooms (one with large built in wardrobe) and a bathroom: all with spacious room dimensions. The ground floor is slightly smaller than the main house due to a large utility/storage (or even tack room to serve the stables) area. It has been cleverly placed at the back of the ground floor and could even and easily be renovated into a small studio or B+B maybe for family and friends or even to make an extra income. There is potential here for the full house to be transformed into a 4/5 bedroomed manor house. The total interior floor area is 200m2.
The three large patios are placed to make the most of the views and gardens. Adjacent, is an additional flat sand area which has been used to house a surface pool. Outside power and taps fitted strategically around the property.
There is also an extra 40m2 building behind the property belonging to the plot – currently used for extra storage, but could easily be transformed into another two additional rooms with planning permission from the local council. Water and electricity are in close proximity.
We cannot stress how immaculately well presented this house and gardens are: tastefully decorated throughout, in attractive, neutral colours and top quality fixtures and fittings, make this house ready to move into. We feel the owner is asking a very reasonable price for this property which you will more than appreciate upon viewing.
The property has many extras and the fabulous furniture is included. It has a tranquil atmosphere and is stunning in its overall appearance. This house and land has lots on offer to suit a wide range of possibilities: such as equestrian, camping, chalets, retreat (yoga, artistic, writing). The property is adjacent to a network of tracks which are ideally suited to walking and other outdoor activities including birdwatching and trekking. Having attained ´Alojamento Local´ licence in the past, short term rental income could also be considered.
