The spacious family house was built in traditional Portuguese style and has an outbuilding that is undergoing renovation, lots of land and a large swimming pool with ditto terrace.

The plot is flat and measures approximately 3630m2, the lawn is 1600m2 including the pool and the pump house where the installation is located to keep the pool clean. At the back is a plot of 1500m2 bordered by a village road and where another house of 200m2 may be built. At the rear right, and separated by a courtyard with gravel floor, is an outbuilding, the former adega, which can be converted on the ground floor as a breakfast room for guests and on the first floor to 2 bedrooms or a large bedroom with private bathroom.
Through the front door, you immediately enter a large open space, a 67m2 living and dining room with newly built-in wood fire for those rare cooler evenings in this part of the world and two new air conditioning units for cooling and heating; two doors from this living room give access to a large central hallway from where you have access to a wardrobe, 32m2 kitchen and wine cellar overlooking the patio at the rear and a spacious study / bedroom of 16m2 also with new air conditioning. There is also a toilet on this floor.
The first floor is accessed by a wide and impressive central wooden staircase leading to an 18m2 corridor. This floor consists of 2 newly fitted bathrooms, the largest with air conditioning for hot and cold, two bedrooms of 16m2 and 27m2 respectively and a third (16m2) with handy adjoining dressing room and a balcony; with little effort these two rooms can be combined to create a beautiful master bedroom.
The next floor is reached by another wide and impressive staircase; this second floor currently consists of a large attic room of 72 m2 which can be relatively easily converted into a huge bedroom / guest bedroom with large fully equipped bathroom.
From all rooms you look out over the attractive rural landscape, with the necessary peace and quiet.
Outbuilding / Adega
This can be reached from the back or the side of the main house and can be accessed from the road through double metal gates. In addition to the large adega, there are two more rooms on the ground floor that can be accessed from the covered courtyard. These will be converted respectively into a studio T1 ( with own bathroom) and a wellness center with toilet, showers, a Finnish sauna and a Turkish steam bath.
Additional land / garden.
There is another 1,500 m 2 of flat land along a road and behind the well installations with new water pump, with possible planning permission for a house of 200 m 2 this to either improve the existing property or to generate a rental income or to sell and thus to reduce the total cost of the original property.
Apart from the easy-care patio and the paved area directly around the house itself, there is a large newly laid lawn with a sprinkler system; in the garden you will also find olive and fruit trees, including orange, fig, cherry, plum and palm trees. The construction of a tennis court is planned for the autumn. Gravel paths were laid from the pool to the back of the site.
The country house is located in the quiet and typically Portuguese village of Carril, in the municipality of Dornes, between the market towns of Cabaços and Ferreira do Zezere, which are both approximately 7.5 km away. In both cities you will find municipal services, banks, supermarkets, doctors' offices, cafes and restaurants. Around Carril you will find many typical villages, beautiful panoramic views, rural areas, ruins, monuments and river beaches.
Cultural places such as Tomar and Penela are easily accessible via modern roads and highways, as is Portugal's third largest city, Coimbra with its renowned shopping areas and historical highlights, including one of the oldest surviving universities in the world. The beautiful coastal area between Nazare and Figueira da Foz is also not too far away.
