Casas do Seladinho
Casas do Seladinho
This package, located in a beautiful region of central Portugal, not far from the lovely town of Gois, offers a pair of 3 storey properties, complete with gardens and garage. Although upgrading is needed, which the very reasonable asking price reflects, one of the houses, complete with working kitchen and bathroom – there is mains water, electricity and drainage – is perfectly functionable and could become a comfortable home very quickly.
Well positioned on the square of an attractive mountain village, the buildings, standing either side of a flight of marble steps, have a common gated entrance. Accommodation to the smaller house consists of living room, 2 bedrooms, with wooden floors and ceilings, and a rustic kitchen; stood slightly apart, the traditional bread oven still remains in situ. There is also a large attic which has a window and exposed beams – far more useful than just a place to keep boxes. At ground level is a storage area with windows and a solid floor.
The second, larger house, which has concrete floors and ceilings, is equipped for habitation. As with its neighbour, the kitchen retains a bread oven, but with it goes a cooker, double sink, fridge and dining table. On the same level are a good sized living room and a fully fitted, tiled bathroom, with tub.
On the next floor are 4 bedrooms, 2 single, 2 double – then it’s up again to another sizeable attic, one that not only has windows, but a door to a garden. As the houses are built into the shelter of the hillside, the small gardens, with their flower beds are accessed from the higher levels – with this house ground floor is a garage.
There is a local cafe, with grocery store, and an excellent River Beach within walking distance. Full services and shopping, plus a good selection of bars and restaurants are within 20 kilometres.
This pair of properties would make a tremendous family home, a shared purchase between friends or a good investment as holiday accommodation. Rural tourism is increasingly popular and they are sited in an area of incredible natural beauty, well within comfortable drive of both major airports, the city of Coimbra and the Coast. The valuation is realistic and thoughtful conversion could lead to a worthwhile second, or full time income, alongside having that perfect place in the sun.
