Casa Horta da Fonte – PD0415
Casa Horta da Fonte
Horta da Fonte is a mature village property, well kept, well situated and with a load of hidden potential.
A substantial building with an interesting layout – a covered balcony gives a great view of the mountains – the habitable area runs to 224m2 over 2 floors, including 4 bedrooms, 2 kitchens and 2 bathrooms. A traditional house retaining some of its original feature, the living rooms have good dimensions with plenty of light and space; there is a full sized attic and a generous ground floor storage area – parking is not a problem – perhaps ready for some updating, but in nice condition with all the ingredients necessary for a terrific family home. To be sold fully furnished, the new owner could move in on completion.
Outside, the garden is large, flat and enclosed. Mostly grassed over, there are some Vines, Olives and established fruit trees, but with 120m2, plenty of space to indulge your horticultural daydreams – be they about veg, fruit and flowers; a pool, a patio and a play area, or a combination of both; there’s even room for a few chickens. There is also a borehole for irrigation.
Alternatively, the building is a prime candidate for conversion – independent accommodation for retired parents or grown up kids?
Equally viable, given the peaceful hillside location, ideal holiday or long term rental.
Located in a striking rural setting 12 kilometers from the town of Pampilhosa da Serra (where there are full services) this area is increasingly popular as a destination for rural tourism; it has an interesting history, old traditions are kept up and numerous events go on over the summer months. There are River Beaches around; it’s great terrain for hiking and mountain biking, many of the local villages will have a cafe/bar and you’ll find some excellent restaurants.
Road access to the major cities of Coimbra, Porto and Lisbon is good – the Atlantic coast, with its amazing beaches and renowned surfing is a comfortable drive. This house has a lot of possibilities – full time relocation, holiday home, rental income. It’s a good size, in a beautiful situation and well worth taking a look at.
