Tastefully renovated farmhouse with great views located in a quiet village not too far from the towns of Espinhal and Penela in the district of Coimbra.
The property sits on a plot of 819m2 and has a second, partly-renovated property, which is adjacent to the farmhouse.
The farmhouse is accessed through a gate that leads into a private courtyard. This house is on one floor and comprises: hall, sitting room (6.30 x 3.00) with large picture windows with wonderful panoramic views, three double bedrooms each (3.35 x 2.35), kitchen linked by an arch to the dining room with door onto a south and west-facing balcony, bathroom, terrace and gardens with fruit trees and vines.
Separate and across the courtyard is a triangular room (18m2), used as a utility room, containing the old bread oven. To the rear are steps down to the garden level into a former barn (31m2), garden shower room, two cellar rooms, vine covered patio, a garden room (3.80 x 2.20) next to two patios, of which one is level to accommodate an above ground swimming pool 3.5m in diameter. The garden has 420m2 of lawned areas on two levels with fruit trees and vines around the perimeter. The views from the garden and terraces are second to none and alfresco dining is recommended.
Across the country lane is the second, part-renovated property, which has had the roof renewed, external stonework cleaned and pointed, new floors, new soak-away drain and much more. This property would make an ideal rental annex or accommodation for family and friends. The annex has two rooms measuring (6.30 x 4.10 and 6.40 x 2.70). There is also a ground floor area for storage with low headroom and a carport.
The main property was extensively renovated in 2004 and has had new internal doors, raised wooden floor under bedrooms and dining room, wooden block floor relayed in lounge, new wooden ceilings throughout, new bathroom, new kitchen, electrical rewire. Since then all buildings have been re-roofed, a wood burner fitted in lounge and electric heaters in all rooms and a sprinkler system installed.

The new A13 motorway, which gives access to main road network and connection to Lisbon and Porto is only 15 minutes away.
