This high granite house is located at an old village on the slope of the Serra de Caramulo, with views over the Vale de Besteiros. From the living room, you are looking out at the Serra da Estrela.
On the street the house is three stories high. The side facing the garden has one floor. The sheltered lower floors are cool in summer and relatively warm in winter. The built area of 350m² offers a surprising amount of space.
What about the facilities?
The water supply for the house is direct water well with crystal clear water from the Caramulo, which also provides a large part of the village. As well in summer the water splashes from the spring beside the house. It is also the possible to connect tap water. Electricity is available but not connected. Telephone runs in the village. Discharge is via a (old) septic tank.
Is there an outside?
In the shady garden of about 300 m² is an orange orchard with two harvests per year, thanks to the microclimate on the southern slope. In the green wealth that the garden is, grow also some other trees. There are no directly adjacent neighbors: the garden is walled in and surrounded by a village road, a granite stair and a path.
In the house was formerly a wine press; the remains are still to be found. The granite bread oven in the garden recalls the days of yore. Other details are the old granite fireplace in the kitchen and the ‘lovers seats’ under the windows.
Where is it?
The house is in the village Múceres on the southern edge of the Caramulo. Caramulo is a beautiful area with various plotted walksand hikes. One of these walks (Rota da Linha) runs through the village. Múceres is a small village with a café and a lively village association which organizes several annual town festivals including the great “feira da comida” in spring. A bus stops several times a day in the village. The nearest market and supermarket are just 4 km away in Campo de Besteiro. Here are several other facilities like other shops, hairdressers, restaurants and cafes. Larger places with facilities such as theater, cinema, library, weekly market, supermarkets and vocational include Tondela (8 km) and Viseu (35 km). The Montebelo golf course is at about 20 km.
