Full Description

Attractive 4 bedroom stone house in private setting close to Ferreira do Zezere. Rebuilt in 2003/4, this stone house is unusual in its quality of reconstruction and attention paid to detail during the build, creating a very attracting mix of rustic and modern styles.This 4 bedroomed property with large entertaining areas will make a beautiful family home.

The property is completely fenced and accessed via wrought iron sliding gates leading into a long driveway, the house is set back from the road and very attractive on approach.

Entering the house through the front door you pass into a large hallway, all in exposed stone, the stone floor slabs have many fossils in them from the time when they lay at the bottom of a lake! Much attention has been paid to preserving details such as these when this property was rebuilt.

From this entrance hall the stairs lead to the upper floor of the doorway or into the main living area of the ground floor.

Continuing on the ground floor you pass into a 'snug' where the original fireplace and large chimney breast have been preserved and installed with a pellet burner which heats the ground floor; from here, on the right, you can enter the WC with a separate storage area with plumbing for a washing machine or go through to the master en suite bedroom.

If you took the left door from the 'snug' you will pass into the large Lounge, Dining and Kitchen area. Above the kitchen there is a wooden mezzanine.

At the entrance here is the original bread oven, again lovingly preserved; the floors throughout the house are all wooden and in this large entertaining space the ceilings are vaulted with high wooden beams and ceiling planking; there is a large raised central fireplace and full height chimney breast.

Throughout the property the exterior walls are all exposed stone, inside and out, sometimes this can be a little overwhelming but in this particular property such attention was paid to the cement mix when re building in stone that the colours of the cement and the stone mix beautifully and blend to create a very soft facade.

Due to the extensive use of wood and stone you may be concerned that the property interior is dark, you would be wrong, it's very light and airy, not an easy thing to create in a property like this.

I had to shut the shutters to take the photographs the light was so bright shining in !

Upstairs there is a landing with two bedrooms on the right and one in front, they are two doubles and 1 single, one of the doubles has French doors onto the small terrace and stairs that run up the side of the property.

To the left you can pass through a doorway into a second lounge / tv room, designed for the younger people of the family to have their own communal space, there is also a bathroom here and a storage room, again there is plenty of light from double doors leading to a miniature 'Juliet' balcony.
