A wonderful opportunity to acquire a property with two cottages for renovation in a quiet hamlet in the parish of Castelo, close to many river beaches and to the two small towns of Cernache do Bonjardim and Sertã for all local amenities.
Situated in quiet village location, this property comprises a traditional two-storey schist house and a ground-level brick house, both for renovation, and set in a plot of arable land with 1,450 m2 and a total of 12 fruit trees: orange, lemon, peach, loquat or Japanese medlar, and olive trees as well and grapevines.
The two-storey schist house, with a footprint of 58 m2 and a total living area of 139,6 m2, has a kitchen, a bathroom, a living-room and a tiled bathroom (with bath, sink, toilet and bidet), an entrance hall and a living-room. The floorboards need replacing throughout. Reroofing may be necessary, ideally with a roof lintel as it is customary in old schist houses to make walls more structurally stable, but wood rafters could be saved. On the ground-floor there are two spacious storerooms. Access to the top floor is through an exterior staircase leading to a terrace where the front door of the dwelling is located.
In the garden at the back of the house, there is a cement tank which was once filled with water for land irrigation.
Across the field, a few metres from this house and also included in the sale, there’s another building: a ground-level brick house with a footprint of 95 m2, which has been left partly unfinished but which, if done up completely, would constitute an ideal place to receive guests or to turn into a rental unit. It has an entrance hall, a living-room with a fireplace, and two rooms to be converted into bedrooms or more living space. There is also an open plan attic which has no access from the inside of the house.
The property is conveniently located within easy reach of the IC8 road and close to the towns of Sertã (10 minutes) and Cernache do Bonjardim (8 minutes) for all local amenities. There are also two village cafés nearby, both within walking distance of the property, one with a grocery shop and located in the village of Seixo, and another one in Castelo, opposite the church.
