Quinta da Tapada
Quinta da Tapada
This sale is a beautiful 4 bedroom quinta built of stone; it’s a place with true character, one which retains many of its original qualities and one that, with restoration, will make a stunning family home.
The accommodation, which needs updating, runs to 120m2 over two storeys. Downstairs is a kitchen, living room, bedroom and a WC – 3 more bedrooms are to be found on the first floor; as the building is set on the rise of the hill, some of the windows give views you’ll never tire of seeing.
On the edge of a busy village, the property stands in 1365m2 (1/3rd acre) of walled garden; productive, fertile soil, now laying fallow, but previously used for vegetable growing, and, for ease of irrigation, has its own spring water with reservoir. There are mature trees, olives and citrus amongst them, and pretty shrubs planted close to the front of the house. Also included, a short distance from the main building, is large detached garage – plenty big enough to convert into a separate apartment, either single storey or with the possible addition of a second floor.
The location here is peaceful, but with plenty going on. The Santa Luzia Barragem , with its host of outdoor pursuits, is only a short drive; there are several excellent river beaches, plus local café bars and some very good restaurants – the area is increasingly popular with rural tourists – there’s a real option for second income if that’s what you are thinking about.
If you are considering full time relocation, full services are to be found at Pampilhosa da Serra, less than 30 minutes away; most of the local villages will have a café, many a mini-market. Access to the major road networks and the cities of Coimbra, Porto and Lisbon is good.
Services: Mains Electricity. Spring water.
Telephone and internet connection is possible.
Bottled gas (for cooking and hot water) and fire wood can be bought locally
