The location offers the best of both worlds; a small peaceful village, Ribeira Velha, in a stunning valley but only 1 mile from the N110 with plenty of restaurants and other facilities. The town of Alviazere is only 10 minutes drive with the popular villages of Macas de Dona Maria and Chão de Couce even nearer which have health centre, schools, bar/cafes, restaurants, market etc.
We are 1.5 to 2 hours by car from Lisbon or Porto airports. The beautiful Knights Templar town of Tomar is less than half an hour away, the University town of Coimbra, 45 minutes. We are one hour or less from sea or mountains and surrounded by river beaches in local lakes or waterfalls.
The wraparound balcony is accessed by a marble staircase leading to the main front door. The main house has a large through lounge with wood burning stove, three good sized bedrooms, family bathroom and kitchen. Floors are wooden parquet and the house is very light and airy. Downstairs is a huge garage and traditional basement living space with a very large open fireplace and pantry.
There is a large attic, large terrace at the back and a roof terrace with beautiful views up the valley. The substantial terraced garden has fruit and olive trees and, of course, vines.
There is a barn adjacent ripe for conversion and an adega with bread oven and wine vat. The house has mains water but its own water source too. Electricity and telephone are already connected.
This property is an excellent opportunity for somebody who is looking for a peaceful but accessible location in this wonderful, undiscovered part of Portugal. It is the practical option of comfortable house to live in on a holiday or year round basis; but still with the development potential to make it your own.
