Superb property with detached 2 bed annex, pool, views and in a great location just north of the town of Arganil in the district of Coimbra.
This property has been constructed to a very high standard 3 years ago and is only 150 metres from the Alva river. The house, which faces south, has been designed to take in the distant mountain views. At the rear of the property stands a pine and eucalyptus forest with some cork oak and olive trees. The property has approximately 9,750m2 of land some of which has been turned into a kitchen garden located to the north of the property. The 10m x 5m swimming pool is to the east of the property and has its own bathroom and store. To the west you will find the barn, kennels and garage with a shaded carport area. The garage is now also being used as a gym and has an attached fully-tiled bathroom that services the courtyard. This area houses the BBQ and outside kitchen where the food is prepared for alfresco dining under the shaded terrace in the centre of the courtyard.
The two bedroom annex, with its spacious lounge/dining area, can also be accessed from the courtyard. The annex is a perfect place for visiting family or friends as it is a completely independent unit and could also be rented out as a holiday let.
The area directly surrounding the main house has a wall/fence ensuring that family pets can remain safe. There are automatic front entrance gates that open onto the stone drive leading to the main entrance of the property and the garage.
The Main House:
The front door takes you into a hall and then into an open area with the library/billiards room to your left. This area also has a shower room, entrance to the lounge, kitchen and wonderful stone and glass staircase with stainless steel handrails. Double doors take you into a large kitchen designed to give plenty of space for food preparation and cooking. The kitchen is filled with natural light and has a dining area and access to the rear terrace. The rear of the lounge can be accessed from the kitchen where, once again, we find a room full of light with great views of the pool and gardens. This room is dedicated to dining but mainly relaxing by the double-fronted wood burner in the winter months.
First floor - the stairs from the hall lead to a central landing area that gives access to the master bedroom to the east elevation. This is a spacious area with a walk-in closet and stunning bathroom with access to the veranda overlooking the pool. The en-suite has a bath, a shower and his and hers basins. The west elevation has two more double en-suite bedrooms, both with showers. The fourth bedroom is sited at the rear of the property and is being used as an office at present.
This is a property in excellent condition and is ready to move into straight away. The nearby village has a café and restaurant both within walking-distance over the river Alva bridge.
