Property Description

Located on the Serra de Arga the coastal range in the far north of Portugal is a tranquil hilltop village in the municipal of Viana do Castelo. Nestled amongst the lush green landscape and scattered village houses is this gorgeous family home Casa Yasmin built over a century ago.
Casa Yasmin has been updated and tastefully modernised conserving many original features including a cute Moroccan style self contained apartment with granite walls which was once a small barn where the animals slept.
A large swimming pool has been installed which has wonderful open views across the valley.
This is an upside down house with three bedrooms and a bathroom downstairs with bath and shower over.
Entering the house to the upstairs landing is a small office bathroom with shower kitchen and large lounge dining room. There are hardwood floors throughout with a terracotta tiled kitchen floor.
There is a south facing balcony to the upstairs lounge with incredible views of the gardens and valley below. The lounge is tastefully furnished with a large bookcase to the front wall.
Custom kitchen with granite worktops and original traditional stone fireplace and bread oven. The kitchen is fully equipped with a gas hob electric oven tall fridge and all cooking utensils etc.
Downstairs two of the bedrooms have patio doors leading to the gardens giving easy access to the pool.
Extensive garden areas that are mostly lawns large area for growing vegetables and herbs (previously used for a family of 4 with ample room) courtyards balconies a rooftop patio and a separate barbecue area. The house has its own water supply via a drilled garden well tested regularly.
Casa Yasmin is a beautiful home which has been realistically priced to reflect the minor refurbishments it requires. The house has been rented out as a summer let to holiday makers and a long term rental to a family in recent years. This house is perfect for someone who wants to put their own stamp on a property as it still requires some modernisation and some TLC. There is no central heating (although the woodburner makes for cozy winter evenings) the kitchen could be extended and improved and the bathrooms would benefit a refurb.
The property is superbly located for exploring the many local areas of outstanding beauty. Just 15 kilometres to the Costa Verde a 100 kilometre stretch of coastline with beaches every few minutes. The Spanish border is just 25 kilometres away.
At night you can often hear wild boar and owls in the valley below and the night skies are spectacular.
