Double house with swimming pool and huge barn on 1.500 m2 land.
At the edge of this very authentic village Agra and the Serra da Cabreira you find this house with tourist license (Alojamento Local).
Beautiful views up to 50 km. far.
TRANQUILITY, SPACE AND PRIVACY
The higher location relative to the surrounding houses, you have all the privacy.
From your seat in front of the house you can see the cows and goats go to the mountains and return in the evening. Don’t want to cook yourself? Then there is a good restaurant in the village where you can go. Furthermore, the larger towns like Cabeceiras de Basto and Vieira do Minho are about 15 km away. There you will find the larger supermarkets such as Continente, Lidl and Pingo Doce.
But for your fresh bread you don’t have to go out. Every morning the baker comes to your door and for 11 cents per roll you do not even have to take the bike! The fishmonger also comes by every week.
Around the pool is a conifer hedge planted so that also there and on the terrace all the privacy is guaranteed that you would like.
The house on the ground floor has 2 bedrooms, kitchen and living room with fireplace and of course a bathroom. The upper house has a kitchen, living room, 3 bedrooms and a bathroom.
The house is heated by an electric boiler and also the cooking plates are electric. There is a boiler on domestic oil but there is switched to electric which increases the reliability.
The current (Dutch) owners rent out the property for the greater part of the year and come rather in spring or autumn.
The entire inventory is included in the price, so that it is immediately ready for use. Two ladies from the neighbouring village take care of the washing and cleaning. This means that you do not need to be present in order to rent out the property.
Of course there is plenty to do in the area. At only 500 metres you can go for a horse ride to the source of the Rio Ave in the Serra da Cabreira. In the Ermal reservoir there is a teleski track, pedal boats, canoes and you can go paddle boarding. A little further away is the international nature park Pineda de Gerês. In Ribeira de Pena there is an adventure park with, among other things, the longest cableway in Europe (1.5 km!). Furthermore, you can climb, descend, drive a buggy, raft, paintball etc. etc. So you will not be bored!
There is a borehole that provides about 4,500 litres of water per hour. For this reason the owner has disconnected the water supply. The water is tastier from its own source.
Black hoses are attached to the roof of the veranda by the swimming pool. The water from the swimming pool circulates through these hoses by means of a pump, so that the temperature can be increased without expensive installations.
There is an automatic sprinkler system.
The barn space that is hardly used now offers enough possibilities to create either a flat or extra rooms or e.g. a game room/bar or dining room.
