Private 10-Acre Valley Three Detached Houses Pool

Listing ID#PT104 - 33770

Figueiró dis Vinhos, Leiria

This is a fairy tale for adults. A little track leads through the trees, past the gateposts, then suddenly opens onto an enchanting ‘lost world’: a private wooded valley of umpteen green terraces, a stream meandering dreamily through it, tumbling gently into rock pools at each drop of the land. With four hectares (ten acres), you could take a pleasant stroll without ever leaving your land.

Rest by the pond for a while, maybe in the wisteria-bedecked pergola, with a nice wine or cold beer, allowing your eyes to wander over the lush canvas; or idly pluck fruit from one of the many trees; or take a refreshing dip in the pool and stretch out on the lounger with a good book while the sun dries you.

This fantasy is within your grasp, if you can make a living, and that’s possible by renting out two of the three houses and living in the other. They are quite close together by the entrance at the top of the estate. Here is a brief description:

House 1. Sitting room with big panoramic windows with lovely views over the grounds, terrace off it; dining room, kitchen with breakfast area (with log fire); bedroom with en-suite bathroom; small bedroom across inner courtyard with easy access to outside shower room; bedroom across front patio with en-suite shower. Lots of storage and garage underneath. Central heating.

House 2. Recently and very tastefully restored. High wooden vaulted ceiling; wooden floors; open plan kitchen/dining/sitting room with stove, panoramic window and lovely wooden veranda; two bedrooms with shared shower room. Good storage space under.

House 3. Long corridor-like sitting/dining area with cobblestone floor (slightly sloping) and stove; fitted kitchen; two bedrooms each with small en-suite shower; covered terrace, rustic style. Easy living here in summer, but not really suitable for permanent habitation.

Please note that the houses are not shiny Alarvge-style villas. Rather, they are quirky, renovated from old farm buildings.

Lower down in the vast, park-like gardens are a new wooden floor for a yurt (included in the sale) and a superb wooden deck, which can be covered, conceived for the practice of yoga.

Despite the splendid isolation, the property is barely seven minutes by car from the agreeable little town of Figueir0 dos Vinhos, which has all your daily needs´, and which lies close to some lovely swimming lakes – so much warmer and safer to swim than the ocean. A new motorway has brought the medieval university city of Coimbra, regional capital and Portugal’s third city, to within about 45 minutes’ drive.

In a nutshell, here is a very rare but achievable opportunity to realise your dream and escape the greyness of rat-race northern Europe, and at a cost which would barely buy you a boring little semi in many parts of it.
