The house is located in an elevated position above a quiet access road. There is a gravel driveway which leads to the rear of the house and plenty of off road parking. The property has metal framed windows and doors and there are some integral roller shutters. The window and door surrounds are marble and there is a covered portico to the main entrance on the first floor, which is accessed via an exterior staircase.
The property is set over two floor and although traditionally the living accommodation would have been limited to the first floor, the current owners have adapted the ground floor from storage to habitation, though some updating would be desirable.
There is a double opening metal entrance door to the ground floor. This leads into the property's adega (wine store). The adega has a tiled floor and a wine crushing vat to one corner. The current owners of the property have been utilising this room as a living room cum dining room. There is also a wooden staircase which leads to the first floor accommodation within this room. Internal access to the garage is also via this adega.
A small hallway, which also has a vinyl floor covering provides access to the first of the property's bedrooms. The bedroom is a good sized double and has a vinyl floor covering. The hallway also leads to both of the property's two kitchens. The first kitchen is very traditional in design and has a large, corner fireplace, a vinyl floor covering and a built in base level unit to one wall. The second kitchen has a tiled floor, partially tiled walls and built in base level open fronted units. There is a stainless steel sink and drainer and the work surfaces are marble. This kitchen also has a part glazed exterior access door which leads out to the rear of the property. Off the kitchen there is a partially tiled bathroom. The bathroom has a walk in shower, toilet, bidet and pedestal sink.
There are five good sized bedrooms to the first floor, all of which have wooden floors and some have internal wooden shutters. One of the bedrooms also has a traditional style fireplace. All the bedrooms are accessed off a centralised hallway, which also has a wooden floor and ceiling.
The living room is also accessed off the hallway and is double aspect. The living room has a wooden floor and ceiling and a double opening exterior door, which leads to the exterior staircase at the front of the house. There is a partially tiled bathroom to this floor, which has a bath, toilet, bidet and pedestal sink. In addition to this there are a further two rooms to the first floor, both of which act like hallways and both of which have wooden floors. One of these rooms houses the staircases to the ground floor and attic. The second room provides access to the bathroom and to one of the bedrooms.
The property's attic is in good condition and although has only been used for storage purposes, could be converted into a master bedroom quite easily. The attic has a concrete floor, exposed stone walls and a wooden beamed roof.
At the rear of the house there is a large, two storey barn, which has been constructed in red brick. The barn is spacious and divided up into several room divisions. To one of the rooms there is a traditional style bread oven. The barn has been used for storage purposes and there are animals pens inside as well, though would make an ideal workshop.
The property is set on a plot measuring 9,520 square metres. There are three wells on the land and two large water storage tanks for irrigating the land. The property has a good variety of mature fruit and olive trees in situ including orange and tangerine as well as a number of mature grape vines.
The property is set in an elevated position above the access road and although there are two properties nearby, both are on a lower elevation so do not impede privacy.
The property is situated in the small hamlet of Portelinhas which is only a short one minute drive from the nearest cafe bar and mini-market at the neighbouring village. The larger town of Tomar, which is home to the UNESCO listed Convento do Cristo, is around 10 minutes drive from the property.
