Are you looking for a place to retreat? A completely quiet, private place in nature, with a breathtaking view over lakes, hills and villages – basically an eagle’s nest with the world laying at your feet, yet you don’t want to give up the living comfort of a central European home?
This unique plot combines the two and is therefore an absolute rarity.
The foresight is a beautiful inspiration, a pleasure for the eye and allows the soul to grow wings.
Combined with the comfort of an almost new, high-quality residential house, this plot offers everything you need for the perfect retreat from the rush of our society.
An ideal place for artistic work, an inspiring home-office, etc etc.
The construction of the buildings was done by a Portuguese architect, which has higher standards in terms of quality, insulation, workmanship, etc, than it is usually the case in Portugal.
The 2-storey residential building consists of two separate parts, which are connected by a shelter / seating area. The building presents itself quite harmonically and fits perfectly into the surroundings.
On the ground floor there’s a room which is currently being used as a closet / laundry room with a washing machine, dryer, freezer, etc. This room, as well as every other room in the house, is equipped with a radiator and a window and can therefore be used as an additional bedroom, an office or a living room.
Next to it is a spacious workshop, with a separate entrance and a window as well.
Still on the ground floor there’s a small heating room with a wood-fired oven serving as central heating for the entire house.
On the upper floor there’s one bedroom and one bathroom.
Between the 1st and the 2nd part there’s a large staircase leading from the ground floor area to the upper floor area.
There’s a large bedroom on the ground floor, which has a private bathroom and is being used as a guestroom. There’s a small staircase leading from the guestroom on the ground floor to the living room on the upper floor.
On the upper floor there’s a kitchen (with refrigerator, oven, dishwasher, induction hob) and a living room.
The house has a top energy-value of A+.
All the rooms have tiled floors. The entire building is equipped with high-quality windows and doors. All of them have mosquito-nets.
Washing machine, dryer, freezer and the furniture are included in the price.
Warm water system runs with solar or electricity.
Mains electricity is connected. The water comes from a borehole, mains could be requested as well.
From the entrance gate there’s a large cobblestone road going around the house, allowing for comfortable maneuvering and parking.
The practical, modern house is located almost at the top of a slope / hill. On the back of the house and beyond the cobblestone road, there’s a nicely built natural stone wall to fence off a small eucalyptus forest which still belongs to the property.
Below the house there are a couple of small terraces lining up along the slope, large enough for a garden, with several olive trees on them.
10 minutes to the village of Álvaro with a beautiful river pool and a small café.
20 minutes to the town of Oleiros with the amenities of a small city.
