Farm T6, Viana do Castelo, Vila Nova de Cerveira
Lying in a quiet isolated valley this property is ideally located for those who want space, privacy and peace. It is located in Covas, Vila Nova de Cerveira in Minho region of northern Portugal. The house is a perfect combination of new and old, a modern annex, built 20 years ago, complementing a renovated older farmhouse. The house and land enjoy their own water supply, with fresh water from a borehole providing for all needs, including the swimming pool.
Situated at the end of its cobbled road means that the only neighbors that can eventually disturb the peace are the birds, the wind and the occasional owl.
The restored farmhouse has two large double bedrooms with views facing southwards over the property and the private stream that runs through it.
The hallway, heated in winter by a Swedish wood-burning stove, links the bedrooms to the living room.
The main living area is located in the modern annex, offering a very large open plan area with a fully equipped island kitchen looking out onto a varanda which runs the whole length of the area. Four large south facing windows illuminate the area , bringing the landscape into the living room.
The guest cottage, separated from the main house by small stairs is a cozy and comfortable alcove ideal for guests.
The pool is naturally heated by the sun, making it usable from May to September. Safety fenced off, its large enough for a vigorous swim, or just cool off.
The south-facing pool area offers wonderful views over the valley, with a barbecue and granite dining area sheltered from the sun by overhanging vines.
