The property is located just south of the medieval town of Penela and has not been changed much over the years. This property comprises 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, dining room, sitting room, kitchen, study, games room, large rear terrace and more...
This wonderful property was constructed in 1762 and still retains nearly all of its original features. The manor house has been sympathetically worked on over the years and oozes character from a bygone era. The stone arched lintel at the front of the property reveals the date of construction when Joseph I was on the throne of Portugal. The front facade has Georgian-style sliding sash windows to the first floor, the ground floor has double doors that probably once opened to reveal commercial premises. The courtyard to the south also has a stone arch supported by pillars over the wrought iron gates. The first floor can also be accessed from the double doors on the front elevation that open onto a wide wooden staircase. The rear of the property faces east and has great views of the forested hills across the valley. There is a balcony to the rear first floor that runs the full length of the property creating a lovely place from where to take morning coffee!
Ground floor - This area contains the games room, 2 bedrooms, lounge, bathroom, store rooms and stairs to first floor.
First floor - Three double bedrooms (one with Juliet balcony), spacious lounge, kitchen, 2 bathrooms and 1 W.C., dining room and rear balcony....
This property is located in the historic zone within walking-distance to bank, shops, supermarket, pharmacy, cafés, etc. There is newly laid calçada (paving) on the one-way street at the front of the property that becomes very private once you pass into the courtyard with those amazing views
If you are looking for an authentic, period property in a great location then this might be the property for you!
