Commercial property in Cerje Tužno with honey production business.
€300,000 for the property.
A rare opportunity to acquire an active commercial honey production operation complete with all the equipment and infrastructure. Located in the hills above Cerje Tužno, the property has a production facility, residential section, tourist's centre, bee hives etc. More details below...
One of the two main buildings on site. This one holds the factory/production centre which takes up the entire ground floor. The upper floor has been used as a residence in the recent past and remains in a condition to be easily returned to this use.
The second building is a large and stylish log style structure used for tourism purposes for visitors arriving to try the various honey based products. Both buildings are directly accessed from the sizeable visitors' car park.
Additionally there are various external structures including this impressive pizza/BBQ covered terrace. Pictures of some of the others follow....
Returning to the main building, the upper floor is a large 'L' shaped space featuring a high standard of natural finishes, flooring and uPVC double glazing/doors and insulated ceiling. Currently mostly used as a mix of office and dry stores however it is easy to see it would be a simple job to return it to its original use as a residential space.
A view into the other leg of the 'L' shows a similar scene of natural wood finishes with restaurant style furniture. Clearly showing this space is used as an overflow area from the tourism centre.
The main entrance door to the upper level is located at one end of the 'L'. This room was previously used as the kitchen, much of which is stil in place. There is no internal stairway connection between this upper level and the production centre on the ground floor.
Moving down to the ground floor, we enter a world of impervious surfaces and clean lines associated with food production, in this case honey and related products.
We know little about honey production so we are unable to be specific about the purpose of each room. We do understand that various kinds of honey are made here along with a very agreeable honey based rakija/brandy.
We are advised the process requires a number of stages, this row of rooms appears to reflect that each has a specific purpose within the production process.
Many stainless steel tanks appear throughout several of the rooms. Everywhere is tiled and sparkling clean.
One of the end products. The owners showed us a list of the current contracted buyers, clearly some intensive discussions need to be had between the seller and prospective buyers regarding the business aspects. Here we focus on the property and infrastructure.
Leaving the main building behind us, we cross a small footbridge towards the other large structure - a dedicated visitor centre on the upper level with a number of utility spaces beneath.
The front terrace/porch of the visitor centre is the first to greet you when approaching from the car park. A very large area with a rich country style restaurant feel. Everything is super-heavy natural timber and in excellent condition.
The terrace wraps around the front and both sides of the building, one end reveals this extra entrance which is located opposite the small footbridge.
Inside the tourist centre the theme of heavyweight timber furniture and fittings continues. We assume considerable volumes of honey brandy gets consumed here.
Another view of the interior of the tourist centre. Timber, old style brick and solid stone abounds.
An example of the super heavyweight furniture design. No problems on a windy day!
Moving down to the area beneath the tourist centre, the largest space is the mutli-car garage. Accessed via an up-and-over door which leads to the driveway between the two main buildings. We understand the bulk of the current contents are 'flat pack' bee hives and associated equipment.
As a tourists' destination, public toilets are required. There is another large room located behind the garage.
Moving to the outside areas, we understand this building contains the required equipment when working at the bee hives, many of which are located just behind it.
One of the bee hive locations.
Our visit was on a dark January day, the car park looked a little forlorn. There is room for a number of tour buses.
Viewed from the main building looking towards the BBQ terrace and tourist centre. The property has a number of fixed solar panels together with the associated control hardware.
Aerial view of the entire property. The two main buildings can be seen with a drawn outline, this denotes they are legally registered on the all-important land book. The bee hives are mostly located around the buildings. The property does include a large forested land parcel laying to the south-east.
