Casa do Alpendre
Casa do Alpendre
In a peaceful spot, close to the River Alva, almost half way between the new town of Vila Nova de Poiares and its mature cousin, Arganil, stands a well constructed 2 storey property. Detached and contemporary, set in a neat walled garden, it comes with around 5000m2 of land, making it ideal for those seeking a quieter rural life, but who still want to be part of a village community.
With 2 good sized bedrooms and a modern generously proportioned bathroom, the house would suit anyone from a small family to someone looking to downsize. Though, should you ever need it, there is an accessible attic which has the potential for accommodating far more than empty boxes.
The Living Room is light and has good dimensions. Glass doors open to a tiled, covered terrace, on a warm summer’s evening the perfect place to sit, glass in hand, watching the Swallows feed as the sun goes down. For the cooler autumn nights, when it’s not quite time to turn on the central heating, an impressive fireplace holds a wood burning stove which gives the room a very welcoming feel.
The well equipped kitchen with ceramic tiled floor is a true gem of a space, one designed for far more than cooking. It will comfortably take a large dining table, plenty of room to entertain without being cramped, but not so big that it doesn’t feel cosy when your guests have gone home.
For all the things you don’t want to look at over lunch there is a Pantry and a Utility Room to keep them in.
There is double glazing, aluminium blinds and the building is insulated.
Outside is access to a garage which has extensive storage space. It will take everything from logs to push bikes and much, much more.
Both the nearby towns have full facilities, open air markets and good shopping. Both have a good selection of bars, cafes and restaurants. There are River Beaches within a short drive of the house.
Various sporting, music and cultural events go on, locally, throughout the year and there is easy access to the cities of Coimbra, Porto and Lisbon with their rail service and airports. The coast is about an hour by car.
