Substantial period property in a wonderful location close to the Castle Tower and 19th century church in the town of Miranda do Corvo, district of Coimbra.
This property enjoys wonderful views of the town and beyond to the Serra de Lousã Mountains. The house sited in the historic zone is said to incorporate stone and pillars from the nearby church, which was reconstructed approximately 250 years ago.
The property has usable floor-space of approximately 320m2 spread over 3 floors and a garden of approximately 165 m2.
The house can be accessed through the archway and along the alley to the gable-end of the property. It is here you can access the ground floor rear storage with original beams and also the living area that faces to the south east. This area has two double bedrooms, lounge with wood-burner, bathroom, kitchen, pantry and terrace with stone arches and pillars looking out over the town.
The first floor is accessed via the stone staircase leading to another fabulous terrace, again with stone pedestals, imposts, arches and pillars. From the terrace you enter the first floor area, most of which has had a large amount of structural work carried out. This includes new pot and beam steel reinforced concrete floor, reinforced steel pillars and beams and a further new pot and beam steel reinforced concrete floor that also forms the ceiling. The roof of the property has also been renewed using reinforced rafters with terracotta blocks and roof tiles. This means that there is now a large space in the loft that ca be utilized.
The first floor also has a number of the original rooms that are in need of complete renovation. This area still has most of the wooden shutters to the windows along with the stone reveals, head and cills surrounding the window and door apertures.
This property would make a fabulous period home within walking-distance to all the town´s amenities, or maybe a business from where clients could explore this beautiful part of Portugal. The castle tower and the 18th century church are 40 metres away up the cobbled steps at the rear of the property.
This property is new to the market and viewing is highly recommended.
