This complex consists of four houses, none of which are habitable anymore. The houses are mainly built of granite. One of the houses has a new roof with a concrete structure and aluminum windows and is relatively easy to make it habitable. At the back of the building is an attractive courtyard and there are a number of outbuildings. Old details such as the layout, the patio, the granite stairs and an authentic bread oven give a special atmosphere to the premises. Below the houses are store rooms and the adega. The total registered built area is approximately 580 m².
How are the amenities?
The houses have been connected to electricity in the past. Water and sewerage have been present in the street for a few years now.
Behind the houses is a flat plot of approximately 2800 m², which is now partly used as a vegetable garden. From the ground there is a beautiful panoramic view of the mountains of the Caramulo.
For someone who would like to run a B&B consisting of several houses, or people considering to live as a group, this can be an interesting option. Perhaps it is also possible to develop an attractive restaurant, for example. However, the exact options will have to be checked with the municipality.
Where is it?
The houses are located in the village of Espadanal, about 5 km from Tábua. Espadanal itself has no facilities but there is a cafe about 1 km away. A nice Espadanal feature is the vicinity of the river Mondego, at about one kilometer distance.
Tábua is a small provincial town where the main facilities are available, such as restaurants, shops, supermarkets, post office, banks, medical practice, schools, swimming pool, library and weekly market. A train station is about 15 minutes’ drive away and the larger city of Coimbra is about 60 km away.
