Countryside residence and land in Pomperovec, Croatia.
Reduced to €48,000 ono.
A very attractive property sitting on a hill top amid the lovely countryside around Budinščina in Krapina-Zagorje County.
An 'L' shaped house, mostly of solid oak construction, having a lounge, kitchen/diner, bedroom, hallway, bathroom/WC, sub-basement and roof space. In this case, "oak construction" means huge frame timbers and thick heavy planks, there's no shiplap here.
The entrance has an imposing feel in that large iron gates provide a centre-piece to a long roadside frontage. A full size driveway and hard standing connect directly to the adjacent asphalted country lane. The house lays off to the right and has excellent kerb appeal.
Viewed from the roadway, off to the left are the oak built two barns. The property is well fenced and is therefore a good place for dogs with its ample space (3,664 square metres of it). There is space for several vehicles to be parked off-street on a hard standing.
Moving into the house, it is tastefully decorated and appointed to reflect its country style but without overdoing it. The main lounge/day room has wall-to-wall carpeting, the walls are finished in white stucco over the oak timbers, there is a new wood/coal burner for heating which is mounted on a solid ceramic topped plinth. Natural light is plentiful having windows to two sides. The staircase leads to the roof-space (more later).
[4.04m x 4.50m]
Continuing in the main house, the kitchen/diner is a large space with very good natural light coming from windows in both the side and front facing walls. The floor is fully tiled with modern ceramics as is the splash-back around the kitchen section. Mixed gas (bottled) and electric cooking facilities are augmented by a beautiful polished steel solid fuel burning range which also provides more than adequate heating during the winter weeks. The whole kitchen is well fitted out, everything will remain as part of the sale price.
[4.0m x 3.4m]
By Croatian standards, the bedroom is quite large and, as is everything else in the house, it is all well put together and nicely decorated. Good sized windows provide plenty of natural light and give a view over the terrace and barns.
[4.13m x 3.78m]
The bathroom/WC has been fully modernised, it is fully tiled with an attractive blue floor and pale blue themed walls. The WC is a low level combination piece (no visible pipes), the wash hand basin is set in a good sized vanity unit, the bath is a modern curved item and is fitted with a glass screen for when the in-built shower is used. Heating is via a chomed towel-rail style radiator.
[2.2m x 1.6m]
Beneath the bedroom is a large basement room which is accessed from a staircase leading to the rear garden. It is most unusual to find a basement in such a clean and useable condition, there is no sign of water ingress (it is a hill-top location) nor smells of dampness. The access door is a new solid wood item, there are two small south facing windows either side of it. Plenty of lighting and electrical outlets are available. The ceiling height is 1.96 metres, a little less to the underside of the structural beams.
[4.10m x 3.67m]
Going up the staircase from the day room, the roof space has received significant work in terms of modernisation. Although incomplete, the roof has been fully insulated with poly-block, much of the roof has been wood panelled plus a number of Velux windows and an end casement have been installed. This level is one single space which reflects the entire footprint of the building. Much of the dirty work has already been done, only some inside work remains, there are installed light fittings and some remaining timber for the completion is already on the property.
This part of the 'L' is 9.4 metres long.
The other leg of the 'L' is at a similar stage of development.
This part of the 'L' is 7.1 metres long.
This property has a good number of attractions, the house is very nice, the basement is excellent, the outside areas are spacious and very attractive, the location and environment is very desirable and then there are these two barns. Solid Oak! No shiplap or wood panels here, they are both of oak construction and that includes the thick oak planks which form the walls. The first barn is the larger of the two but both are the perfect base for development into whatever use you may wish - or just leave them as barns.
The outer barn has a cold water supply with a small sink with a soakaway waste under the path and into the garden. There is also a land drain at the rear of this barn to catch the water from the roof taking excess water down into the lower garden. It has lighting and power supplies already installed. This image shows one section of the outer barn, there are other similar rooms. We have images of every space if you would like to investigate further into this property.
The inner barn is of the same super-strong oak construction as the outer barn. Smaller in length, it has vehicular access directly from the concrete hard standing in the courtyard, two large cars can be parked inside, side by side. The septic tank sewerage system was recently installed and has sufficient capacity to cope with the existing house and if both barns were converted into living accommodation.
Inside one of the rooms of the inner barn. Here the heavy duty construction can be more easily seen. There is a significant stockpile of timber of building quality which will remain for the use of the new owners. As before, We have a number of other images if you would to investigate further into this property.
The external areas are mostly flat with the southern section sloping away gently to the adjacent agricultural land. The land has been well groomed, the grass cut and some borders trimmed.
Having earlier mentioned the numerous attractive features of this property, here's another! The view to the south from the higher elevation is typical of the best vistas available throughout the region. The long warm summers are a delight for those of us who enjoy sunshine and, in this rural setting, what could be better?
Of course, this is a 'continental' climate which means, even though it is located in the southern part of Europe, we do get short snowy winters. Here's an image of the inner barn on a mid-winter's day. Cold? Yes it is - but the winter is short and the sky is mostly clear and blue - and there's almost never a wind. If you like the four seasons, places like this in rural Croatia is where you'll be able to experience them.
Taken from the official land register, the property's borders are shown by the orange coloured rectangle. North is up.
The local asphalted road provides the northern border, the farmer's field is the southern edge. This is the last (eastern-most) property in the village, the eastern border is forested land. Despite its very rural location, the entire property is located within the local residential zone. This means that non-Croatian buyers do not need to open a limited company to own it.
