The house, with 156m2 area, has four bedrooms, three double, one single (the smaller one is currently being used as an office), lounge with wood burner, kitchen with separate dining area, two shower rooms, (one with bath), and large tiled hallway with an alcove suitable for a desk & chair. There is also a loft space which was fully insulated when the new roof was put on ten years ago.
The tiled hallway opens onto a gated patio with a brick barbeque (storage underneath for logs) and a row of three outbuildings, currently used for storage but suitable for conversion to guest accomodation or studio (potential source of income). There is also a flower bed planted with flowers and a variety of herbs. There are steps leading up to the secure gas bottle store and a gate leading to the front of the house. Another gate leads down to the pool area and a further one directly to the garden, which can also be accessed from the pool area. All the gates are lockable to keep pets/young children from accessing the pool unsupervised.
Vila da Fonte has a large roof terrace with stunning mountain views and another pretty little terrace which is perfect for relaxing with a glass of wine and a book. There is a large tiled area around the pool and an outdoor shower. The former mule shed is now a lovely restored stone building where we store the outdoor furniture, toys and bikes. Just behind the pool is the lawn with another stone building for storing logs, and steps lead down from the pool area to a gated parking area for two cars. Access to this is via a cobbled road. There is also parking for one car at the front of the house.
Vila da Fonte has many established shrubs and fruit trees, figs, plums, apples, pears, oranges, clementines, lemons, physallis & grape vines. There is also a terrace with 6 olive trees and a plot for growing vegetables. A natural fonte runs through the garden (hence the name). This used to supply mountain water to all of the villagers prior to tap water being available. The sound of trickling water is very relaxing and it is lovely to see the various frogs and newts that it attracts.
Vila da Fonte is a special place in a beautiful and peaceful location, yet only ten minutes drive from Castanheira de Pera which has all the essential amenities(banks, supermarkets, pharmacy, health centre, vet, restaurants and cafes). Here you will also find the wonderful Praia de Rocas, a lido with wave machines, pedalos, houseboats, cafe/bar etc.
