This beautiful stone cottage has just had a full renovation, finished in March 2021.
The renovation was beautifully done by a local skilled Portuguese craftsman, keeping much of the original character of the traditional stone cottage. Through the main door, there is a wooden staircase and cellar room that is cool with exposed stone walls built into the hillside, keeping the room cool in summer and insulated in winter. This space would make a great movie room/living room or wine storage bar area.
Up the stair leads to an open living space with doors leading to the bathroom and kitchen extension and bedrooms. The Wet room and WC is a newly re-built extension, beautifully designed, keeping loads of original features whilst providing a clean and fresh space. The kitchen is large for the property and has handcrafted kitchen units on one side. The kitchen leads out onto the garden space which is enclosed.
It has 2 small bedrooms and a mezzanine floor that could be used as a 3rd bedroom or additional living space.
Garden with 178m2.
