Lovely, quiet rural house, built in 1937 and lovingly restored in the 1990s, having been kept in good condition and used as a weekend house since then. It sits in a tiny village, one hour away from Lisbon by motorway. There is commerce, pharmacy, post office, local health centre, restaurants, and plenty of amenities 20 minutes away, by car. The house has 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a large sitting room with working fireplace, a large kitchen-diner with fireplace, a large double garage, a 98 sqm garden with a well which feeds an automatic lawn sprinkler system, and an adjacent 5000 sqm of good, fertile land with another well. The garden is well maintained and has a few trees, flower beds and a vine. The land has been planted with corn for the past few years but can support any other type of culture, as the well provides plenty of water to sustain it. There is an ancient olive tree next to the well in the land which is at least a hundred years old. The house is fully furnished and can be sold practically as it is, ready to be inhabited (only a handful of things with sentimental value will not be for sale). There is electricity, water, gas, telephone landline, appliances (dishwasher, washing machine, hob, fridge, hot water cylinder, satellite dish). There is a gardener who would be happy to be kept on for garden maintenance, and a cleaning company that would also be happy to be kept on for house maintenance. There is a house which belongs to a retired English couple close by (about 100 metres away).
This place feels a little bit like paradise on Earth, with a “get-away-from-it-all” vibe. It is extremely quiet, the only sounds being from farm animals from other properties. The sky at night is a simply mesmerizing as there is no light pollution.
The closest city is Santarém but the property is less than one hour’s distance to Lisbon Airport.
