Detached house (1+2 bedrooms) with grounds and beautiful views, Vila Cova de Alva, Arganil

What is it?
This detached house consists of two parts: the original house and a more recent extension. The main house has three floors. On the ground floor are the kitchen, bathroom and a bedroom, which is now used as a sitting room. On the first floor, accessible via both an indoor and outdoor staircase, there is a spacious living room and a roof terrace with beautiful views of the mountains. Below the house there is another floor with two storage rooms. The original house is largely made of slate and was renovated in 2006 while retaining old elements such as the slate walls, wooden floors and wooden roof.
The more recent extension only has a ground floor and consists of two spacious bedrooms, each with its own bathroom and each with its own outside entrance. These bedrooms are not internally connected to the house. This makes them very suitable for B&B, for example.
The registered living area is 140 m². The registered gross floor area is 195 m².
There is a wooden outbuilding 10 meters from the house that is not registered. It measures approximately 40 m² and is used as a workshop.

How about the facilities?
The house is connected to electricity and water. There is a septic tank for drainage. The windows and shutters are made of aluminum. The windows and doors are double glazed and most also have mosquito screens. The roof is insulated. There are electric elements for heating and the living room has a wood-burning stove. Two geysers provide the hot water supply. Internet is obtained via fiber optic. There is also a dish and antenna on the roof.

Outdoor space?
The house is located on a gently sloping plot of approximately 1,600 m². A lush and attractive ornamental garden has been laid out around the house, and it is partly paved. Between the house and the workhop there is a leafy terrace under a monumental strawberry tree. The rest of the ground is more forest land. Near the house are four olive trees and two mandarin trees.

From the house and the land is a beautiful panoramic view of the Serra de Açor. The plot is located in a rural area without being isolated and is one of the gems that are becoming increasingly scarce because it is hardly allowed to build in such places anymore.

Where is it?
The house is located between the two villages of Casal de São João and Vinhó and is accessible via a paved road. Only the last 200 m are a reasonably passable dirt path. Côja, where most facilities are available on a small scale, is about 4 km away. A river beach, camping site and various restaurants can also be found here. Arganil is located at a distance of approximately 20 km. This small provincial town has all important facilities such as restaurants, shops, supermarkets, post office, banks, doctor’s practice, schools, library and weekly market. The larger city of Coimbra is approximately 70 km away.
