This beautiful 4 bedroom home is located on the edge of the village of Capelo in the mountains of Portugal. There are several other villages close by and the nearest larger town is Gois about 15 km away. It is a 1 hr drive from Coimbra and the nearby Serra D'estrelas for skiing.
This property was built from scratch and has been a family home for the past 9 years. The house comprises;
The entrance hall has an adjoining room that presently houses the washing machine etc. and opens into a large living room area and kitchen. To the rear is a second large living room with a log burner and stairs leading to the first floor. There is a bathroom and a guest room.
The stairs lead up to the front study room and to the rear is the master bedroom with a small adjoining room designed for an ensuite or walk-in wardrobe. There are 2 further double bedrooms.
The house has been built to a modern design with rustic features including arched windows, bespoke internal woodwork etc. It was designed to run with both 12v and 230v plugs sockets and switches chased into most rooms. It is also designed to run independently off solar power and the Rayburn controls the central heating and hot water. It is also connected to the mains; electric, water and phone, has an internet capability and TV with 1.2m satellite dish fitted so it has the best of both worlds.
The heating system has been designed to eventually run off solar heating panels but needs panels to complete the job. The heating system is working perfectly from the Rayburn at the minute. The 350 Ltr boiler is compatible with this system and was bought with this in mind. Hot water is also available from gas bottles and the system with boiler is also fitted. The house will come with one 75W Solar panel and one, leisure battery; more can be purchased as and when needed. There is also a 75W Wind Generator with fittings, but it is not fitted at present.
We have a small area of land adjoining the house with potential to buy more for people interested. The garden has various fruit trees including hazel, olive, apple, cherry and plum. The house faces south on the upper edge of a quiet village with only a handful of occupied houses. Behind the house are mountains tracks which are great for off-road biking. It is high in a valley with panoramic views. The local river has various picturesque swimming spots that are mostly quiet but become quite popular in August.
This country home is in lovely condition even though there are still a few unfinished, small jobs to do around the house. It is a great family home!!
