There is a pretty garden around the main entrance (image 1520cc, the 4th slide in this presentation), this is the much bigger garden to the left (NW) side of the house which features a variety of trees and shrubs. The white ranch fencing at the far-ground marks part of the enclosed NW boundary of the property. The actual property border lays a few metres beyond the fence and runs along the middle of a brook, the other side of the stream is the neighbouring land.
Viewed from the roadway, the NW side garden/parkland extends to the line of white posts running left-to-right at the mid ground. Beyond them is the field used for horse exercise and grazing where the stable block is located.
Viewed from the edge of the NW garden (looking over the white post fence which separates them) is the large field currently used as exercise and grazing land for the owners' two horses.
The stable block has a full sized hard standing, two enclosed stables, a hay/feed store and a tack room. We have available photos of each, if you wish to view them (and others) simply let us know. Details are at the bottom of the page.

The stable block is the structure to the north (up) of the main house. The row of trees running along the left side of the property between the yellow and green lines is the location of the brook/stream.



A single story building in a rural setting yet just a few minutes' drive from the centre of Varaždin, a major Croatian city. With over 5,800m2 of land divided into garden, park and grazing land, this is a substantial and imposing home. The area is mostly flat although the dramatic hills of Varaždinbreg are only a few minutes' away by car. The house is in absolutely perfect condition from top to bottom, all the painted surfaces are smooth, clean and spotless. All the furniture is included in the price minus a number of personal items, this to be specified before purchase. The furniture, fixtures and fittings are clearly of good quality and look as new, the current owners clearly have a keen sense of living in a high degree of luxury in attractive circumstances. With grown up children having flown the nest plus the years passing by, the owners feel it is time to downscale to something more physically manageable for them.
