Beautiful period cottage dating back to the turn of the last century but rebuilt in 1954 when it was extended up and the first floor added, located in the quiet small village of Andréus, 5 minutes from the historic village of Sardoal, in the region of Abrantes, central Portugal.
Set on a plot of land with 1,680 m2, this property perfectly combines the experience of village life and close contact with nature. The layout of the property, namely the dwelling place with a total living area of 120 m2, in relation to the stone outbuildings (stone shed, stable, covered area to store firewood and pigsties), reveals a concept in design that was intended to combine comfort with work-related functionality hence providing to the self-sufficiency needs of country living.
The ground floor has a living-room, a double bedroom, a small single room and a kitchen with a fireplace. Arranged over the first floor are also a kitchen with fireplace, four bedrooms, a sewing room and access to the loft.
The first floor has suspended timber floors in perfect condition and the roof may only need to be checked and insulated. Some of the wooden windows need to be replaced.
The large south-facing balcony offers beautiful countryside views of the surrounding fields with steps to the large inner courtyard which provides access to several outbuildings:
An annex with bathroom, a kitchen with a fireplace and an entrance to a large barn
A covered area to store the firewood
A covered area with a bread oven
Two stone pigsties
The courtyard also provides access to the sunny south-facing back garden with three large terraces and a total area of 1320 m2 of fertile soil, with 27 olive trees and other fruit trees, just perfect for a vegetable garden and the ideal setting to relax and enjoy the Mediterranean countryside. A very large well dug into the rock provides water for irrigation.
The property has mains water and electricity and a septic tank, however, the mains sewage system is located only a few meters away from the house and connection can be requested to the council.
There is rear access to the property where parking space could easily be made. There are four entrances in total to the property: the front door, a gate to the courtyard, a gate to outside steps leading to the first floor and the back gate.
Only two minutes from the center of Andréus, a small village only 5 minutes away from the historical and larger village of Sardoal, 15 minutes from the city of Abrantes, 30 minutes from Tomar and 1 ½ hour from Lisbon and the Silver Coast.
Locally, as well as many sites with a history going back to ancient times, there are river beaches such as those of the Castelo de Bode lake only ten minutes away, Lapa, Penedo Furado and those of the river Tagus.
