The two-storey cottage with a footprint of 75 m2 has two storerooms on the ground floor and outside steps to the top floor where the kitchen, separated from the main dwelling, and the entrance to the living area are located – both the kitchen and the living area are accessed from the small terrace at the top of the stairs.
The kitchen still has an old sink and a fire place. The living area has two bedrooms and a living room. The space could be rearranged to enlarge the living area on the top floor by moving the kitchen and dining room to the ground floor and connecting both floors with an internal staircase. On the top floor an enclosed porch at the top of the stairs could link the two previously separate living areas, enlarging the space available which could then be divided up again into larger rooms.
This cottage needs complete renovation: reroofing, replumbing and rewiring. The suspended timber floor needs replacing although many structural beams could be saved. The schist walls are structurally sound.
The ground-level outbuilding of schist stone has two separate rooms. This outbuilding could be renovated and adapted to use as a workshop or office, for more living space or even as a separate rental unit.
The property comprises two separate titles, an urban and a rustic, which will be merged into a single urban title before exchange of contracts and completion. The two houses can either be renovated or rebuilt to occupy a maximum footprint of 200 m2. The property is located outside the greenbelt area and will be granted planning permission.
Located on the edge of the village of Pereira, Graca, and close to Pedrogao Grande – an area with a very large expat community – for all local amenities, this property is situated in a beautiful and peaceful location, surrounded by stunning countryside views and close to a water spring and a stream.
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 great investment at a very low price.
