A spectacular 20 minute drive from the market town of Arganil is a tiny rustic village where this house sits. There, sheltered by the hillside, is that little stone cottage you’ve been searching for – 30.25 m2, but with a usable area of double that, it’s stepped straight out of a picture book.
Two storey, with a new roof and wooden ceilings, this is a fantastic renovation project, the chance to restore a traditional schist house back to its former glory – and for a very sensible asking price.
With it comes a second building, single story, just under 25 m2. It’s the old bake house, again, built in stone – the oven remains and could be made good – or perhaps you have a different idea in mind for that useful extra space.
A practical sized veggie patch sits just below the property’s access path, but if you aren’t a gardener, or your plans include holiday rental, paved over, it would make a superb patio – just sit there, a glass of something cold in your hand, and gaze, words can’t do justice to the view across the mountain.
The setting is a peaceful, rural community, but all the necessities of life, such as shopping and full services, including a small hospital and a veterinary practice are less than 30 minutes away; closer are a selection of cafes, restaurants and River Beaches.
This delightful little place is beautifully located. Coimbra, with its mainline rail service is an hour by car, Porto Airport is two, Lisbon Airport is three and the coast is a comfortable journey for a day out.
Whether you are seeking a full time home away from it all, or something to provide a second income, could be you’ve just discovered it.
