Full description: 3 bedroomed luxurious home, potentially a B & B with 2 holiday cottages, this property is located on a lovely historical Portuguese estate set in a gentle sloping terraced landscape and surrounded by slate walls, olive trees, fruit trees and grapevines. The house is privately situated on the edge of a pretty village along the Alva river, an area very sought after by buyers. About 20 km from Oliveira do Hospital and an equal distance from Arganil.

The house is ideal for a B&B, with guests on the upper floor and owners on the lower and sharing the lounge/kitchen in the middle, affording each plenty of privacy. On one side of the courtyard is a lovely big communal kitchen with washer/drier, fridge, cooker and everything else one would to expect to find in a well equipped kitchen. Next door the cosy and authentic bar / games room where one can spend evenings enjoying Portuguese wine or playing games with guests. Some metres towards the front of the main house is the little house, 2 adjoining slate cottages with 2 x 2 person self contained modern guest apartments, each with their own bathroom and private sun terrace and steps leading down to the pool. Along the edge of the stream which forms the border on one side of the property there are the remains of two old watermills in ruins of which one is round and big enough to convert into another cottage.

The land is approximately 20,000m2 (2ha). The borders of the land are designated by the stream on one side, a long slate wall on the other and a track on another. There are basically three kinds of vegetation, the stunning mazy garden, the orchards and the forested area.

With its own outdoor bar and changing room, there is a beautiful and inviting pool (4 years old) and views towards the Açor mountains and of the pretty soft rolling hills and the rural countryside around it. Plenty of nooks and crannies with antique benches and hammocks where to lose oneself in a good book or just to dream away. Underground a water tubing and computerised irrigation system ensure the stunning beauty of the garden all year around with the minimum of hard work. There is also pretty lighting sprinkled around the grounds and on the patios/ sun terraces. There are all kinds of fruit trees such as apples. pears, peaches, cherries, grapes and more.

Not far from the pool lies an amazing 1000 year old water well in perfect state. Words cannot describe the unusual building which surrounds it, and the size and depth of the well, inspire! The water here will never ever run out says the owner and it is used to fill the pool without showing one millimetre of difference in the water level. A real gem. Mains water is connected but the two wells supply unlimited water too which is pure and natural. Property with 3 septic tanks. Excellent access along a good farm track.
