Country home with approximately 0.7 hectares of land situated on a quiet lane 1.2km from the shops and cafés in the village of Varzea Grande.
The house has self contained upstairs and downstairs living areas and is being sold complete with household furniture and appliances. The first floor has 2 bedrooms, modern kitchen and bathroom in addition to 4 reception rooms with scope for creating another 2 bedrooms. The ground floor has 1 bedroom and 2 reception rooms, currently used for storage these have in the past been used as another bedroom and living area. Across the covered courtyard from the house are the downstairs kitchen and shower room. The courtyard also contains a separate workshop and another storage room.
Outbuildings include a large studio occasionally used for yoga and a stable block with 5 rooms one of which contains a traditional alembic and a bread oven.
Grape vines grow outside the courtyard with olive, fig, mandarin, orange and apple trees at the front of the property. The garden contains a patio, raised beds with mature shrubs (primarily decorative but including rosemary, bay, lemon verbena, almond & pomegranate), a small beach and a 7 x 4 metre above ground pool.
The garden also contains 2 wells that provide water to the stable block, pool and irrigation for the garden and paddock.
At the rear of the property is the paddock, in the past this was used for a horse & donkey which added to the already high level of fertility of the soil. The paddock is irrigated by one of the wells and by the valeta (traditional irrigation channel) that brings water from one of the local rivers. The paddock contains many fruit trees, about 25 olive, several different types of plum, apple, pear & persimmon.
Across the lane from the main property is a small parcel of land, partially cleared that is currently unused but could be developed further for grazing, crops or as an addition to the garden.
