The House of the Chapel of S. Lourenço retraces to the year of 1746, year of its construction. Old house of uneven beauty, as much in the worked granite of its façade as in the ample interior spaces, is still distinguished for its absolutely central localization in the city of Ovar. As it relates the Report of the Heritage of the PDM of Ovar (CMO, July 2013), the baroque religious architecture finds an exponent here, therefore 'It shows in its symmetrical façade a baroque vestibule pushed by a cornice and round window in granite, being coated for coloured tiles and grating in forged iron.'. One of the most important aspects of this House lays in the ample covered area (vide photo). This House still can be recouped for habitation of bonanza quality, having a land with about 900m2 in the exterior. However, other solutions of investment exist… this House can be adapted for Hotel or same distinct lodging like Pousada type. On the other hand, the main building can always be used to advantage for museum, gallery of arts, commercial gallery with apartments and in the land behind could be implemented apartments or also same housings. The multiple motivations for investment are assured by the extreme central localization, very generous covered areas and equally generous land area, even so some interior divisions threaten ruin, as it happens with the Chapel. The City Council of Ovar consecrates attention to this property as it integrates the set of property with municipal interest, thus guaranteeing a program of support with sight to the integral recovery of this House, through European financing managed by the City Council.
Located near the beach, the Ria de Aveiro and the centre of Ovar and Furadouro, this villa is situated in one of the best places for easy access to the city of Porto, Espinho and Aveiro, among others. Its location makes this house an excellent choice for those who enjoy walking or cycling tours. The pedestrian and cycling routes between Ovar and Furadouro - nearly 5 Km of flat tracks - allow the whole family a healthy conviviality, allowing various family recreation programs. Near the pine forest areas, it is still a great location for picnics and walks in the forest road that connects Ovar to Esmoriz, where there is cycling paths and specific places to socialize like Buçaquinho park. In spring and summer, the beach of Furadouro is an excellent family choice to enjoy not only the beach - one of the best beaches in the North with respect to iodine, always had european blue flag - but also all infrastructures for busy social life for all age groups.
