Good rental potential
Farmhouse and cottage with Infinity pool which is close to the fantastic beaches (2 km - less than 5 mins drive). The house is located in a private 3 acre garden and vineyard (producing Vinho Verde, the regional wine). Just inland from the local fishing town of Vila Praia de Ancora, a series of cobbled lanes wind their way to the villa, which has far-reaching views across a picturesque rural landscape and towards the coast.
The MAIN HOUSE is a traditional modernised farmhouse, with the accommodation on the first floor - the ground floor provides a laundry room, storage rooms and the traditional wine cellar.
Well equipped dining kitchen (dishwasher, oven, gas hob, fridge freezer and microwave) with views to the garden and pool with patio doors and julliet balcony. Kitchen also has a wood burner.
The lounge has outstanding views to the garden.
3 bedrooms (one en-suite).

GARDEN: The property has 3 acres of mature gardens and vines. There are numerous fruit trees including oranges, lemons, chestnuts, walnuts, pear and apples. There is a INFINITY POOL with air-source heater which is 10m by 4.5m. Patio area under the vines. The farmhouse has a spacious cobbled courtyard with a covered barn area for parking. In the garden there is an outbuilding that could be converted.
The main house has double glazed windows, hot water is powered by an eco-friendly system and the house has gas central heating.
Most of the furniture and fittings are included in the sale.
The Ancora river is less than 5 minutes walk, with a 'secret swimming spot' for the locals in the summer providing crystal clear waters which is great for swimming.
Local area and getting there: The nearest beaches are less than five minute drive away in Vila Praia de Ancora, where a wide range of shops, restaurants, and a new daily fresh fish market can also be found.
It is a lovely area, not yet spoilt by tourism and typically Portuguese. It has amazing beaches - sometimes we are the only ones on! In summer there are life guards on all the local beaches, hire a beach hut, canoe down the river or have a surf lesson from one of the many surf schools.
