Casas da Azenha
Situated in a secluded hamlet, an area of great peace and natural beauty, tho only 5 minutes from a village,the package for sale consists of 3 houses, each with its own Article number, and 2 parcels of land.
Accommodation to the main house, which is to be sold fully furnished, is, in keeping with tradition, on the 1st floor and consists of 3 bedrooms, living room, dining room, kitchen and small bathroom; the ground floor being a stone cellar, currently used for storage and a Utility Room complete with washing machine.
The owner, a retired English teacher, bought an empty dilapidated house 6 years ago and has undertaken much of the restoration work needed to turn it into a home. To achieve it’s full potential there is more to do, but that, she has decided, will be done by someone else.
Immediately next door is a pretty stone cottage, sound, but in need of total renovation. A lovely space, a future holiday let perhaps?
A few meters beyond that, a single story studio, with most of the renovation work completed – great for an office, even better for a teenager seeking a place of their own. Close by are 2 more spaces, 1 recently re- roofed, now a potting shed and a workshop but once a house, and possibly, could be again.
To the rear of the main building is a large enclosed garden at the edge of which are an old Olive tree, and a Summer House that has the perfect view down through the valley, a very special place to spend a summer’s evening. To the front are a flourishing herb garden with stone steps leading down to the second piece of land, which has been planted with young fruit trees and vegetables.
The property, which has only 2 neighbours nearby, is accessed by 300 meters of good unmade road, the responsibility of and regularly maintained by the local Junta. It is a quite but not remote place, a few minutes walk from Pombeiro da Beira, where there is a bright, modern cafe, a small shop, a cash machine and a Primary School.
Arganil, a busy little town with full facilities, including schools, Family Doctor, a small Hospital, a Leisure Center, with swimming pool and a Veterinary Practice, is 14 kms away. The delightful city of Coimbra is 30 minutes by car, the coast is less than an hour..
