Rare opportunity to purchase a Quinta in the spectacular countryside of Inner Central Portugal, close to Avô.
The property consists of a house of granite set in 2.6 hectares, with fabulous views overlooking the beautiful village of Avô. It is only a 2 minute drive from the wonderful river beach and local shops.
The property is off grid and benefits from solar power and 4 water mines, electricity is available to connect should you wish. The terrain has various private flat areas that would lend itself to tourism. There was previously a wooden house on the site and the foundations of this remain. In addition there is a ruin and an additional stone house that could be converted for additional accommodation. The access to the house from the village is mostly by tarmac road, with the last 80m being a track leading directly to the property.
The house is constructed mostly of granite and has 3 bedrooms. Entering the house from a lovely open terrace you walk into the open plan living/dining/ kitchen area on the ground floor that has stunning views over the land and adjoining countryside. The kitchen features of areas of exposed granite. The lounge area has dual aspect, double glazed windows where you can take in the surrounding vista as you relax on cooler evenings by the wood burning stove.
To the rear of the house is access to a bedroom and (temporary) stairs to the first floor which is open to a vaulted ceiling. A corridor leads to 2 additional bedrooms and access to the bathroom. At the end of the corridor is the original access to the house and an area that could be utilised as a first floor terrace which would give unfettered access to the views.
The house is fully functional and habitable however some finishing work is required. This work is mainly to the bedrooms and the staircase. There is also an additional shower room/toilet to the outside of the building which is plumbed in but requires exterior and interior finishes.
The covered terrace spans the width of the house with stunning views towards the Serra de Estrela.
