This is an old stone house that requires renovation, but with the potential to make a lovely village home.
Situated in the mountain village of Melambes this property has a gated entrance which leads into a walled courtyard garden area, complete with exterior stone sink. At the moment this area has not been developed but could allow a lovely private outdoor seating area.
From the garden there is access to a basement which has exposed stone walls and beamed ceiling. This area has not been developed and requires attention.
An exterior staircase leads up to a small terrace, which provides views across the village and towards the mountains. There is a basic outdoor bathroom with toilet, sink and bath. In the next room, which is roughly plastered, is a traditional open fireplace and stone sink area. This would possibly have been the main living area but requires renovation work.
On the upper storey, which is accessed by an external stairway is an apartment that has been restored, but could be updated, with an openplan living area with bed area and a separate pantry kitchen with sink. This could provide a simple living space whilst other renovation work is carried out on the property. Electricity is available.
