Renovated cottage in peaceful, rural location near São Marcos da Serra

Casa Amora (Blackberry Cottage) was renovated a few years ago. It is located via a very quiet, tarmac lane in the countryside, just 6 km from São Marcos da Serra. The house features quality wooden windows with double glazing and fitted mosquito-netting. Most of the walls are built in traditional 'taipa' (similar to a cob cottage). The high ceilings are made from traditional eucalyptus and pine.

The living/kitchen/dining area has a large wood-burner and a fitted kitchen units. The two bedrooms have solid oak floors - both have en-suite bath or shower rooms. The second bedroom has a mezzanine floor.

The covered terrace is perfect for al fresco dining and there is a plunge pool with shallow end for children and a large brick built BBQ. Grape vines, olive, fig and pomegranate trees flourish on the plot of 3500 square meters. Parking space near the house can accommodate several cars.

Behind the house is a registered ruined building which can be rebuilt. The water tank (cisterne) is located on the highest point of the plot, thus creating enough water pressure to use water without the need of a pump. There is also a traditional 'nora' (well), complete with water wheel in front of the house. The plot is has mains electricity.
