Large country house and stables near Ivanec.

Ref: 1616

€93,000 neg.


A rare combination of a country house which is available to foreign buyers without the need to open a Croatian company. Set in a hamlet in a lovely valley setting near the city of Ivanec, this large two-storey house has a large flat garden plus significant outbuildings including a stable block. Everything in the living quarters (the entire upper floor) is in excellent shape and is move-in ready.

The slides (below) show the key features and descriptions, we have many other photographs available if this property is of interest and, naturally, we're always happy to answer your questions.


1616a
A large two-floor detached house
A large two-floor detached house with full gas central heating and double glazed wood framed windows with wooden shutters. The upper floor is fully fitted as a two bedroom home, the lower floor is utilitarian in nature.
1616b
the main house lays to the left, the outbuilding block is facing the camera
Viewed from the garden, the main house lays to the left, the outbuilding block is facing the camera position with a block built area (right) and wooden stables (left). The stairway (extreme left) leads to the main entrance to the living quarters on the upper floor.
1616c
The living quarters on the upper floor are accessed via this staircase.
The living quarters on the upper floor are accessed via this staircase. There was an internal staircase connection between the two levels, this is currently blocked off but is available to be re-opened if desired. Inside the main entrance door is a small hallway leading to... (next)
1616d
A long hallway runs along almost the entire length of the house
A long hallway runs along almost the entire length of the house along the rear wall, this gives access to the first bedroom, living room, kitchen and then to a small hallway at the far end where the second bedroom and bathroom are located.
1616e
The first bedroom is large and bright
The first bedroom is large and bright. The window faces onto the garden as do all the windows. The floor is of natural wood floorboards, the radiator has a heat reflecting shield fitted, the windows are wood framed tilt-and-open types with sealed unit double glazed units. The door (see pic) leads to the next room although is currently not used.
1616f
Moving along the rear corridor, the next room is the day/living room
Moving along the rear corridor, the next room is the day/living room which incorporates the hallway and is thus larger as a result. The window and radiator are the same as described earlier. There is a chimney outlet should you wish to install a solid fuel stove/furnace. As is the case in all the rooms, the walls and ceiling are clean, smooth and well decorated.
1616g
the next room is this galley style kitchen
Continuing along the corridor, the next room is this galley style kitchen. The window and radiator are as described earlier. The kitchen is complete minus a refrigerator. The range and style can best be seen from the photograph.
1616h
At the end of the corridor (the green arch) is this small hallway
At the end of the corridor (the green arch) is this small hallway which has doors leading to the second bedroom and to the bathroom. The floor is laid with 'heavy' ceramic tiling.
1616i
The second bedroom is also large enough to accommodate a full sized double bed
The second bedroom is also large enough to accommodate a full sized double bed and some furniture whilst leaving plenty of space to move around. The radiator, windows, walls and ceiling are all the same as described earlier. No cracks, no flaking paint, no dampness, everything is in fine shape.
1616j
The bathroom is fully tiled
The bathroom is fully tiled and has a WC, wash hand basin, some furniture and a full-sized bath. As is traditional in Croatia, there is adequate space for the washing machine to be located here. The windows are of modern uPVC construction. There is a normal radiator (out of shot) plus a tubular wall mounted radiator.

This little community is surrounded by gentle wooded hills
Returning to the garden from the upper level, this image shows how the property, indeed most of the hamlet, is on flat land as is the access road. This little community is surrounded by gentle wooded hills which emphasise the beautiful valley nature of the place.
1616l
entering the ground floor level, we start with this large room
Now entering the ground floor level, we start with this large room. It is partially fitted out, has a ceramic tiled floor and double glazed wood framed window. There appears to have been a full kitchen here at some previous time but it has been removed so there is some making good to be done to one wall.
1616m
The main entrance to the ground floor is via these doors
The main entrance to the ground floor is via these doors which lead into a small hallway. The floor has ceramic tiling and the walls and ceiling are in good shape. The main electric consumer unit is located here, there is a full three-phase feed in addition to the normal household electric supply.
1616n
The second ground floor room is located behind a long hallway
The second ground floor room is located behind a long hallway which, unlike the upper floor, runs along the front of the building. The walls and ceiling are plastered, there is an electrical supply and lighting although the room remains un-decorated. It required only cosmetic work to finish. There is another small un-developed room behind this room where the gas boiler, waste pipe and other utilities are located.
1616o
The third major ground floor room is also prepared with plastered walls
The third major ground floor room is also prepared with plastered walls and ceiling and also requires some cosmetic work to bring it into living accommodation condition if required.
1616p
the ground floor hallway runs along the front of the building
Unlike the upper floor equivalent, the ground floor hallway runs along the front of the building and benefits from plenty of natural light. The floors are laid with large ceramic tiles, the general condition means that only a little decoration is required to make this a useful and productive area. We understand the owner had plans to develop the entire floor up to residential standards but... well! We all have plans don't we?
1616q
Leaving the man building, we'll now look at the annexe
Leaving the man building, we'll now look at the annexe. The far end is of brick and render construction where there are two rooms, the near end is a wooden construction which sports a covered area with horse stables either side plus a store room at the near end. There is a hard standing in front of the block plus another in front of the main house.
1616r
The first annex room is this large space which has been developed
The first annex room is large and has been developed to a degree where it is a comfortable and useful clean space. The windows are double glazed, there is power, lighting, water supply and drainage.
1616s
The second room is less developed
The second room is less developed but still offers plastered walls, power outlets, lighting and a window. There are signs of dampness here although it appears to be due to condensation and a lack of use (ventilation) rather than water ingress. We understand it has been used as a workshop.
1616t
For an external barn type building, this one apears to be in good condition.
Now moving into the wooden construction and the first of the two stables. The roof tiles look in very good shape as do all the timbers and support beams. For an external barn type building, this one appears to be in excellent condition. There are hay lofts above the stables.
1616u
Between the two barns there is this covered space
Between the two barns there is this covered space, presumably for horse related activities.
1616v
The second stable is in an equally good condition
The second stable is in an equally good condition as the first.
1616w
this is the stream which runs across the front of the property
Moving now to the outer area, this is the stream which runs across the front of the property a few metres from the front fence. It is owned and maintained by the state. We understand there are effective flood controls in place and that local properties have not been affected in modern times.
1616x
Viewed from the neighbouring land
Viewed from the neighbouring land in order to show the general layout of the village. This property is effectively not overlooked from the windows of neighbours... unless they try really hard!
1616y
The main garden area is quite large and sports this old style vine frame.
The main garden area is quite large and sports this old style vine frame. The immediate total land holding is a little under 1,300 square metres.

The section shown within the red border is the house, annexe and garden.
The section shown within the red border (1616A) is the house, annexe and garden. The other plot marked as 1616B is also owned by the same person. There are options for purchasers, these are explained below...


Overview...

The main elements of this property are shown in the above slides and in the list of key points below. As explained in the final slide image, there are options for foreign buyers. Ideally the seller wishes to sell the house/annexe/garden plot (1616A) together with other plots of land which includes plot 1616B. There are also other smaller plots located remotely from the house.

Foreign buyers who wish to own the property without the need to open and be responsible for a Croatian company are invited to purchase only plot No: 1616A. This plot is fully within the local designated building zone and is therefore available for foreign ownership in your personal name and without the need to open a Croatian company. If you also wish to own the land plots, these are available at no extra cost but you will need to buy via a Croatian company. Whichever you prefer, the price is the same.

This property is located in a valley surrounded by wooded hills. The road into and out of the village is flat as is the land on which the house and garden are located. There is effectively no traffic save for local residents and the odd tractor. The village is a pretty example in that the houses are dotted about with good space between them. There is one neighbour whose property is out of sight behind the outbuildings, the house on the other side is occupied only very rarely for the odd weekend.

The current owner had planned to operate a small equestrian centre and has some organised marketing with the local horse riding club and with the regional tourist agency. This plan was not realised due to life getting the way but remains an option for new owners if that activity is in your blood.

It is very rare to find such a rural and attractive property which is available to foreign buyers who prefer not to need to open a Croatian company in order to own it. We expect a great deal of interest in view of that aspect and the low asking price.
