A house with a soul and a story to tell, in an historical village where Romans and Moors crossed their paths, leaving behind not only their rich and striking heritage but an ancestral memory etched in the spirit of this place, this country and this land. The perfect location for a perfect cottage to be sympathetically brought back to life and to its former glory.
Only minutes away from the Rio Frio and the Tagus River, also only a few minutes from the village centre and the city of Abrantes, this property offers the right balance between the bucolic charms of rural Portugal and the convenience of a quick and easy access to city life.
The cottage, annexes and outbuildings once used for storage of farm equipment and animal shelter, set on nearly 2 acres, show vestiges of past agricultural activity. In fact, the most striking feature of this property is its incredible potential in terms of the area available. The previous owners and occupants (the house was built in the early twentieth century) worked the land with oxen-pulled ploughs. The set-up of the space and the buildings show the typical pragmatism of the era when utilitarian concerns took precedence over comfort.
The whole property is now in ruins, however, the style and beauty of the cottage are still perfectly visible; its sturdy stone construction lends itself to a perfect restoration project!
