Detached 3 bedroom Cottage style house
This traditional cottage style house has had recent improvements and has a large south facing terrace and balcony. The layout of the house currently has a kitchen, separate utility, pantry, hallway, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, separate downstairs toilet, lounge, storage space, ground floor terrace, balcony, gardens, BBQ and double car port. The house is in a location with excellent access to the road network, only 5 minutes from Tábua, 45 minutes from Coimbra and less than 2 hours from Porto airport. In Tábua you will find all your daily needs, banks, restaurants, leisure facilities and a hospital
The house benefits from two entrances, the original front door into the hallway or alternatively a door at the rear from the terrace directly into the kitchen. Entering from the rear you will find a really nice, large fully fitted kitchen in immaculate condition with lots of cupboard and worktop space and tiled floor. The kitchen is bright and airy with double aspect windows. From the kitchen you access a hallway with staircase to first floor and the hallway to the ground floor rooms. The under stairs space has been cleverly incorporated to provide a pantry/storage. To the right there is a good utility room (which was the original kitchen) and the first of the three double bedrooms. To the left you will find the downstairs WC. There are a couple of steps to a lower level providing additional character to the house. To the left is the access to the original front door and the hallway leads into a large family bathroom (with bath) and a further double bedroom. To the right, the hallway opens into a good sized lounge, that is light and airy with a window and large sliding double doors that flood the room with light as south facing and provides access directly to the terrace and gardens. The lounge is equipped with a fireplace with a heat Recuperador which is also connected to the central heating through radiators (it should be noted that there is also an immersion heater that can be switched over if not using Recuperador). In addition there are also solar panels providing hot water, the house is equipped with a number of heating options. The layout of the downstairs would lend itself to ground floor living.
From the hallway next to the kitchen is the right handed staircase to the first floor where you arrive at the open space to the right. This space is currently used for storage but could provide additional bedroom, reading or playroom as required. In this roof space you will also find a small room housing the hot water tank and storage.
To the left is the entrance to a huge master suite with a nicely done, good size ensuite shower room on the left. There is open space on the entrance to the bedroom which provides good storage. A couple of steps providing architectural character open out into what can only be described as a huge master bedroom with wood finished vaulted ceiling. The bedroom is light filled from large sliding doors to a private balcony with stone balustrade, south facing, overlooking the garden and provides a peaceful spot for a morning coffee or evening glass of wine.
Outside, the house benefits from a large sheltered double carport to the side of the house and gated access to the rear terrace. The large tiled terrace with stone balustrade provides an excellent space for dining or entertaining and runs the full length of the house with peaceful views over the garden and open view beyond. From the terrace you can also admire the beautiful wooden shutters to the house. The terrace can be accessed from the kitchen or lounge. Beyond the terrace is a nice, flat manageable garden with a gorgeous pine tree to admire and a number of fruit trees
Overall, this is an excellent family house with character and good access that could provide a number of living style options.
