This is a very spacious 4/6 bedroom property located 1KM from the town of Avelar, which has two supermarkets, in the district of Ansião. The house has been constructed to a high standard with quality materials that are evident internally and externally. This property has 433m2 of usable floor space on three levels with the ground floor having been designed as an independent unit. The house was constructed 14 years ago and has been well-maintained and improved by the vendors with an investment of over 50,000 euros.

The property has a driveway leading to the rear with the front door accessed through the garden. On entering the house you will find a hallway with doors leading to the L-shaped lounge, which has one of the two wood-burners in the property and patio doors to the garden. The fully-fitted granite kitchen is off the lounge and, once again, French doors give access to the rear terrace. The dining room at the rear of the property can also be used as a double bedroom and has a nice view over the rear garden. The fully-tiled bathroom has a bath with overhead shower, wash hand basin, WC and bidet. The study overlooks the garden to the front of the property. A polished stone staircase leads from the 1st floor to the ground floor where you will find the large drawing room with feature wood-burner fire. The second fully-fitted kitchen is off the drawing room and contains a pantry and doorway leading to the rear parking area. This floor also has a large double bedroom and fully tiled shower room with WC and wash hand basin.
The second floor is accessed via the stone staircase taking you to a hallway that has doors leading to the three double bedrooms, bathroom and the turret. There are nice views of the surrounding wooded hills and the front garden from the turret roof.
The rear of the property has a very small stream that runs for most of the year. There is also a sophisticated pump and sprinkler system that irrigates both gardens fed from a 150M deep borehole that supplies water all year round. A croquet lawn to the side of the barn provides entertainment for those long summer days. There is plenty of urban designated land to construct a swimming pool once permission has been granted by the local authority.
There is 800 sq metres of urban land and a further 570 sq metres of rustic land on the plot.
This is a property that ticks all the boxes in respect to privacy, near to amenities, near to motorway access, not overlooked and plenty of space. The property benefits from double-glazed windows with shutters and insect screens on all windows and off-peak storage radiators for the winter months. Mains electricity with upgraded power output, water, telephone and fibre optic internet are connected. A year ago a state-of-the-art modern 3 chamber septic tank was installed for sewage.
The property is conveniently situated approximately 10 minutes from the new A13 motorway, which provides fast links to Lisbon and Porto airports. The university city of Coimbra is about 35 minutes away as is the city of Tomar. The medieval town of Penela, with its 11th century castle, is a 15 minute drive. The coastal resort of Figueira da Foz is 40 minutes.
