Property in central Portugal
Set in a quiet but thriving village community, not far from a pretty little town, stands a neat, 2 bedroom house with a small garden. Though in need of some updating and refurbishment, it is comfortable, well laid out and has full working services – no reason to stop the new owner moving straight in on completion.
With a habitable area of 104m2, over 2 storeys, the rooms are of good size and have natural light, many of the windows offering clear views over the surrounding countryside. There is plenty of space for seating and dinning furniture, with both bedrooms easily able to take a double or two single beds.
Like many older houses, accommodation is on the first floor, but unlike most, the ground level has been divided into 2 areas; one, a self contained storage unit with it’s own outside entrance, the other a living space reached by internal stairs from the rooms above. This little place has been well designed.
There’s an open fire for winter heating, decoration is plain, floors are a mixture of wood and tiles.
The outside area, which runs to 30m2, could easily be turned into a pretty yard and play area, or converted for parking.
The village has a number of stores including a supermarket and petrol station. There are several cafes, most of which serve an excellent traditional lunch, and a cash machine should you need it. Not far is the market town of Gois which has full services, including a medical center and school. The local countryside is beautiful and very unspoiled, there are a number of good River Beaches within easy reach, as well as a selection of bars and restaurants.
The historical town of Lousa, with it’s excellent shopping, is less than 30 minutes drive, the city of Coimbra around 45 minutes – the coast is just over an hour away.
This house lends itself to a variety of uses – a small family home – an ideal space for someone looking to downsize – or with it’s easy access to the airports of Porto and Lisbon, a well located holiday property – it’s got a lot going for it, and is very good value for money.
