Casa fonte do Soito – PD0444


Next to each other, on a cobbled road in a mountain village, stand two schist buildings; one is of three storeys, the other is of two. Tucked into the shelter of the bank, with a garden of around 100m2, they are both in need of renovation, but, with adequate habitable living space, and power on site, a DIY project, should it be intended, a is perfectly realistic idea.

The larger has a footprint of 83m2, accommodation running to 166m2 – the smaller, a total area of 66m2 over its three floors. Some repair has taken place, but the atmosphere of the houses has not been altered and their character remains intact, for example, the original bread oven is still in place.

The location, a bustling rural community, is enticing; the scenery of the Ceira Valley, beautiful; peaceful but not dull; quiet but not isolated. If you want to relocate full time, everything needed is within a sensible radius; you are 25 minutes from a busy market town. It’s somewhere to find a gentler way of life and, once restored, the buildings would make a striking family home.

The area is a true jumble of the modern and the traditional, small bars and cafes some serving home cooked local food, local festas most summer weekends; little used roads and tracks to walk and cycle, you are never sure what you’ll find along the way, but it’s also a region being promoted for rural tourism so there is also decent investment potential –there are excellent River Beaches nearby, a variety of events going on throughout the year, prominent historical sites, and some very good restaurants. Access to the major road networks is good, the Medieval City of Coimbra is 45 minutes by car; the Atlantic Coast, renowned for its pristine beaches and great surfing just over an hour. Both Porto and Lisbon, with their international airports are a comfortable drive, the Spanish ferry ports less than a day’s journey.

This sale is a pair of storybook cottages – one to live in, one to let perhaps?  It’s more than worth the journey to find out.
