It is quite rare to find one of these old schoolhouses in Alentejo but they actually do make a very interesting and cosy home.

This schoolhouse is nestled in a small village within the countryside, with some fabulous views.

It has had a renovation carried out on it some 5 plus years ago and would benefit from a cosmetic upgrade to further extenuate its original charm.

Fortunately, most of its features are still intact more so on the exterior of the home. standing within its own pretty gardens which offer a colourful display all year round.

The property itself has good dimensions and the ground floor living areas consist of a kitchen which has been fitted with a good range of wooden wall and base units. There are ample spaces for utilities and there is also room for a dining table or a central island if required.

The separate lounge area has good dimensions and can be entered through the original double wooden doors located to the front elevation of the property, which would have been used many years ago when it was a school. There is a woodburning fire to one corner set in a brick feature fireplace and there is an abundance of natural sunlight flooding in through three, character, half windows all along one wall.

There is a separate w.c, shower room and bathroom which serve the living areas and has good access from the garden.

The lounge also has an open feature marble staircase which the present owners added to access the second storey.

The upstairs of the property consists of 2 spacious double bedrooms both with fitted wardrobes, small Velux roof windows and patio door entrances onto two small verandas.

The bathroom is a good size off a small landing area, it is fitted with a full white suite and is nicely tiled again with a small velux roof window.

This second storey is light, bright, airy, and has good spacious dimensions.

The garden area is on two levels and is neatly divided via a few steps and whitewashed balustrading in keeping with the original charm of the property.

There is a built in bbq and a cisterna which collects rainwater to feed the irrigation system.

The property’s location is quite remote apart from a handful of scattered neighbouring cottages.
