Situated in a peaceful area only a few minutes drive to the bustling market town of SB de Messines, this property with main house and annex has been completely renovated and is ready to move in and enjoy.
The gate opens to a pretty garden with traditional cobblestone paving and old water tank (cisterna) in front of the house. The front door opens to an entrance hall which leads to the bedrooms plus a door to living area. The kitchen is open-plan with plenty of cupboards and counter space. It comes equipped with dishwasher, eye-level oven and microwave, gas hob, washing machine and fridge-freezer. A breakfast counter divides the kitchen from the dining area and both have south-facing windows onto the low maintenance garden. A door from the kitchen leads outside to the terrace with wooden pergola providing shade. This is a lovely spot for breakfast as you listen to the birds singing.
Opening off the kitchen and dining area is the cosy lounge with wood-burning stove. Sliding doors open onto the rear garden with above ground pool and views of the surrounding hills. This portion of the land is fenced and would be perfect for animals as it is level.
Back inside there are 3 bedrooms. The master bedroom has a vaulted ceiling, sliding doors opening to the terrace and south garden, and an en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower. Bedroom 2 has a built-in wardrobe and a window to the rear garden, and bedroom 3 (currently used as an office) has a window to the south. There is a family bathroom with bath with shower over. Both bathrooms benefit from energy efficient panel radiators.
Next to the house, but separated by a cobblestone patio, is the guest annex. It has a living room with small kitchen and space to dine, shower room and one bedroom, and is completely self-contained.
The property benefits from a new roof with insulation, new electrics and plumbing, and double-glazed windows. It has mains water in the house and a traditional cisterna collects rainwater to irrigate the garden. The area around the house has been fenced but the land extends beyond this and includes the hill to the side of the house as well.
Nestled in the hills this is a peaceful location but just 3km to SB de Messines with daily market, supermarket, shops, cafés, restaurants and train station. It is a great area to enjoy nature and is only a 10 minute walk to the dam (lake) for fishing or canoeing. Faro airport is only 45 minutes by motorway and the coast is 25 minutes.
