4 Bedroom Refurbished House w/ Traditional Features
A traditional Portuguese family home situated on the fringes of Bombarral: a town blessed with rolling vineyards, fruit orchards and within a 45 minute drive of Lisbon.
This family home was built in 1998 and has recently been totally refurbished to a high standard while keeping a traditional Portuguese interior; a feature that makes this home feel very special.
This house is also unique because the upper floor is accessible from the outside; so could easily be separated into a self contained apartment if required.
