Acéna de la Borega - Country House
Property SummaryThis stone faced, three bedroom house in the small, attractive village of Acéna de la Borega is a little gem. About 15 minutes from the market town of Valencia de Alcántara, the house has 7,000 sq. m of land (approx. 1.7 acres) and has good access from the lane.
The house is of a modern construction and the first thing you notice is an attractive sunroom which has splendid views over the olive grove and the Sierra Fria on the border with Portugal. The floor is all on one level with the galley style kitchen and living room being open plan. The lounge has a wood burner and the windows give the house a light and airy feel.
There is a gas cooker with oven below and attractive wooden doors on the kitchen cupboards with the traditional curtain covered storage space below the worktops. The town water is heated by a gas boiler and town electricity is connected.
There are three bedrooms, one with a fitted wardrobe and a family bathroom which consists of a toilet, wash hand basin and shower, with mirror over the basin.
To the side of the house is a BBQ and concreted area which could ideally be used as a covered seating area if a porch was added. A wood / equipment store completes the outside space. This space could easily be used as a workshop too.
The gated driveway has orange and apple trees, with the remainder dedicated to olive trees. Outside lights illuminate the driveway. There is a well which could provide water for irrigation.
The house is within easy walking distance of the two bars in the village and you can choose whether you go to San Vicente de Alcántara or the opposite direction to Valencia de Alcántara to do your weekly shop.
I would class this as a ready to move into home and having the advantage of being close to a local community.
