Casa da Confraria — which means `house for the brotherhood of monks` — is a five-minute walk from Sintra`s city center, which has shopping and dining options, as well as museums and palaces (Sintra is a Unesco World Heritage site).

Once a dormitory for monks, the hillside property consists of two houses joined by a shared door; it overlooks the surrounding countryside and has a distant view of the coastline.

The 186-square-meter (2,000-square-foot) main house has a kitchen with a fireplace, a formal dining room, a sitting room and a wine cellar on the main floor. Upstairs it has a library, the main sitting room, a bathroom and a bedroom with dressing room. On the attic floor are two bedrooms, two bathrooms (one en-suite), and a third sitting room.

The smaller house has 93 square meters (1,000 square feet) of living space, with a kitchen, dining room and library on the ground floor, and two sitting rooms (one with fireplace), a bedroom and a bathroom upstairs. The attic has a second bedroom and a sitting area.

Both buildings retain original like wood doors and hand-painted tiles. Most of the furniture dates to the 18th and 19th centuries and is for sale for an additional 200,000 euros ($283,589).

The houses were renovated and restored in the late 1990s.

The property is 465 square meters (5,000 square feet) and includes a 279-square-meter (3,000-square-foot) garden that has a stone wall decorated with antique Moroccan doors.
There is also a stone patio with a fountain, accessed from the kitchen and sitting room of the main house.

Lisbon and its airport are about 45 minutes away; beaches are about 15 minutes away.
