The property has been tastefully restored and still retains many of its original features including wooden ceiling beams and pillars, stone cills, steps and lintels. The rear of the property faces south and has stone calçada terraces for BBQs and alfresco dining. There are also three stone barns, all in need of renovation, that could be put to several uses including a garage, rental units, garden storage, studio, gymnasium etc. It is here that you will also find the stone "Eira" circle once used for drying cereals and threshing. This would make a great terrace surrounded by the nearby cork trees that provide shade in the warmer days. The outside area also provides off road parking for 4 or more cars.
Ground floor / The main entrance of the farmhouse is though the double hardwood doors on the front elevation that open onto a spacious lounge area with exposed wooden joists, beams and pillars. This area has ceramic floor tiles and wooden ceiling with a pine staircase to the first floor. The lounge also has bi-fold wooden door that takes you to new bathroom/utility room with its WC and wash hand basin to the rear. The other end of the room contains the washing machine, sink and work surface with plenty of storage for linen etc. The rear double doors from the lounge open onto the newly fitted kitchen/diner with its gas hob, electric oven, dishwasher, extractor and stone worktop. This room is full of natural light and opens onto the rear terrace for dining under the blue skies and stars on those balmy summer nights.
First floor / The upstairs can be accessed from the lounge and the stone staircase on the front elevation of the farmhouse. A central corridor leads to the 2 rear split level bedrooms, which are mirror images of each other. These bedrooms have storage robes on the lower level with the bed position on the upper level. Both have great views of the garden and countryside. Opposite the rear bedrooms is the master bedroom with pine ceiling and views to the nearby wooded hill and countryside. At the end of the corridor is the fully-tiled shower room with w.c., bidet and wash hand basin. This part of the corridor also opens onto an anteroom with a door leading to the front garden.
This is a property that could offer the new owner a home that is ready to move into and also the possibility of creating a holiday let business. The 3 barns located on the property could, with planning permission, be converted into independent studios. The rural tourism business is strong for this area and these 3 studios would be ideal for holiday makers and house hunters alike. Plans can be forwarded on request as to how the barns can be renovated and an option of a new layout for the lounge to the farmhouse.
The property in a much sought-after location and offers privacy yet is not isolated. Viewing is recommended.
