The property is fully walled and fenced, with some grapevines growing around one of the walls on the top terrace.
The house, with a footprint of 100m2, is situated in a corner between two streets and the property can be entered by the front or side gate. Both gates give access to a patio area which could be turned into a container garden. On the right of the patio is a partly covered area, in use for firewood storage.
On the left side of the dwelling, there is an independent building with storerooms on both the ground and the first floor – the latter being a large storeroom. In need of some renovation, this building could be turned into a guest house, workshop space, or indeed, more living space.
From the patio one can enter the main house through the kitchen door, or climb the stairs to the roof terrace, which offers a wide view of the village and surrounding orchards, fields and countryside. The roof terrace gives access to both the attic storeroom of the main house and the first floor storeroom of the independent building described above.
The cottage comprises a traditional kitchen, a dining room, a shower room (with shower, toilet, bidet and sink), and a corridor which gives access to four bedrooms and the living-room. At ground level, underneath the first floor of the main house, another storeroom is located, now in use as a wine cellar. It has large garage doors and independent access from the road.
The roof is in perfect condition; it has a cement structure and traditional Portuguese clay tiles.
The house is connected to mains electricity and has a septic tank that does not need emptying.
The main house is habitable but needing some updating and decorative work.
The property is within walking distance of two cafes and a mini-market. It is about 3km from the centre of the town of Cernache do Bonjardim, which has cafes, bars, shops, supermarkets, banks, sport facilities, a pharmacy, a post office, a health centre and schools.
The larger town of Sertã is only 6 km away. It has several supermarkets, shops, restaurants, banks, indoor and outdoor pools, a public library, schools, health centres, cafés, bars, public parks and a town hall, and it is of easy access from the IC8 dual carriageway.
The property is also close to the Castelo de Bode Lake where you can enjoy swimming, fishing, wakeboarding and all kinds of water sports.
The closest international airport is situated in Lisbon which is a 2 1/4 hour drive from the property. Lisbon airport is serviced by many low cost airlines, which operate regular flights to and from the United Kingdom and other European countries.
A property with great potential and not to be missed!
