The house was renovated by the current owner in 1998 and the old wooden floor was kept together with the interior wooden double doors and antique glass above as well as the wood covered ceilings. New wooden windows and a rustic kitchen were put in at a later stage. The entire roof was renewed in 2008.
Outside there is the old cisterna (watertank) changed into a pool and a cozy terrace. Stairs lead to a lower floor with a huge garage (for 2 cars) with access to the backstreet of Boliqueime centre.
