This is a lovely home located in the area of Vale de Santarem which is located close to the main town of Santarem near to the Silver Coast in Portugal. It is registered as having nine rooms that can be utilized to provide a single family home, or potentially a B&B/guest accommodation (with licensing). The house has many stunning original features. A lot of work has already been carried out but there is still enough updating that will allow the new owner to put their own stamp on it. There are also outbuildings that could be turned into a spacious annex.
