This typical Algarvian cottage sits in a countryside location, a short drive or cycle from the seaside village of Carvoeiro and the main supermarkets.
The house features traditional-style, thick stone outer walls which provide great natural insulation. Several of the original windows have been restored and turned into attractive interior shutters. This house has been partially renovated and already has a new roof with velux roof windows, re-tiled floors throughout and new interior walls. The kitchen space is prepared for you to install your own custom kitchen.
There are three generously proportioned bedrooms, with the main bedroom being en-suite and with a separate external entrance. The other two bedrooms share the central bathroom and have large windows allowing plenty of natural sunlight. One also has its own external door to the back garden while the other enjoys a hot air inlet from the lounge fireplace.
The spacious lounge, dining and kitchen area are open plan and the lounge features a wood burning fireplace with heat extraction to the adjacent bedroom. The ceilings are high with the original wooden beams.
There is a large roof terrace with superb views of the Monchique mountains, a garage and outbuildings. The front of the house features a shaded terrace leading to a large, traditionally paved area over the underground cisterna. This would make an excellent pool area. You'll also find a built-in bbq on one side and a bread/pizza oven in the shade of the trees making up the pretty gardens which surround the cottage. The plot used to have an active vineyard which now needs some care, however it could be helped back to life should you wish to try your hand at making some of the local fabulous wines.
The price has recently been raised as renovation has begun, walls have been re rendered and new windows are in, so the current pictures are not yet updated, at the moment that there is still some updating required to turn this into a cosy home or viable rental property.
Just a few kilometres from award-winning, blue flag beaches, Carvoeiro village and large supermarket, this is a property with enormous potential and provides you with a great opportunity to add your own mark to your house in the sun.
