The owner purchased this house in 2015, but has not started restoration until recently. Vale da Manta had to rebuild the tops of the stone walls as the building had been without a roof for many years and the rain had washed away the mud that held the stones together in this old type construction.
The new roof completely changed the appearance of the building, instantly bringing back some of its former grandeur.
The windows and doors are now being installed, double glazing to enable more efficient heating in winter.
A stone stairwell is being reconstructed to connect the two floors
