The house stands proudly in a village location, walled to the front and on first impressions it is hard to believe the terrain that lies beyond. Entering through a single gate, granite steps take you to the original front door and the main living space on the first floor. A large hallway leads to each end of the house, where you will notice the original wood flooring and high ceilings. To the right is a large lounge area that is filled with light from 3 full height double doors (double glazed), windows with Juliette balconies and wooden floor. Beyond this room off the hallway is a large family bathroom. To the left of the hallway are two double bedrooms. The first bedroom has the original wood shutters and fabulous ornate ceilings. The second bedroom has dual aspect windows out to the conservatory, again with the original shutters and original ornate ceiling in excellent condition. The end of the hallway opens out into a large light filled kitchen, with tiled floor, plenty of work and cupboard space, with additional area for dining or lounge space. In this area you will find a large Recuperador (fire) which also provides central heating in the house through radiators. From the kitchen there is access at the end of the house to a gorgeous terrace, perfect for sitting with a morning coffee and taking in the stunning views. The rear of the dining/lounge area provides access to a long conservatory with tiled floors and large windows. Here you will find a small utility/ironing room and also access to the gardens and lower floor.

From the corner of the kitchen you can access the second floor via a wooden staircase. On this floor you will find a hallway and 4 large rooms in the attic space with substantial wooden floors and vaulted ceilings. The large rooms at each end of the house have double doors with Juliette balconies, This floor requires finishing and the materials are in place, such as timber and tiles, metal frame and insulation, and Velux windows. This floor already benefits from a pre-installation for water and electricity supply. Due to the size and layout this could provide 4 additional bedrooms or independent living space.

The ground floor has two huge rooms, the whole footprint of the house. Here the substantial granite structure is evident with access from the rear of the house and street side. These rooms are currently used as a clothing exchange for the community, but provide an opportunity for multiple uses. As well as the central heating, the house has the addition of solar electricity system sufficient to power this large house and water heating which can also be switched to gas.

Leaving the house from the conservatory at he back of the kitchen, steps take you down to the walled courtyard area where you will find the remnants of another granite building with open spaces and a covered entertainment area.

The gardens were planted 150 years ago by the original owner, of Brazilian origin, and contain many rarely seen plants such as Bird of Paradise, Camelia, Cactus and even a large Avocado tree. There are many fruit trees, apples, oranges, peaches, plums, quince, tangerine, figs, lemons. There are 300 vines and 90 olive trees that can be harvested, a large areas of flat grassland and a gorgeous, tranquil pine & oak forest.

The land has an abundance of water from 3 mines and 3 wells, it really does have a little bit of everything and to find this in a village setting is a rare find.

Overall, this is an opportunity to obtain a grand house in a large quinta, with options for further development or a self-sustained lifestyle, yet part of a village community.
