We are very pleased to offer to the market this wonderful and very spacious 7 (SEVEN) bedroom property in the sought after village of Banya.
This house is substantial! There are three floors of 90 sq.M providing a whopping 270 sq.M. The position of the staircase adjacent to the front door means that the property could easily be converted to three separate flats. Or there is undoubtedly an opportunity for a boutique guesthouse. Or simply very comfortable living for a family.
The house is located on a small road on the outskirts of the village of Banya – the famous hot spa town of this region. The Western elevation of the house has quite exceptional views over lush meadows with horses and cows, on to the spectacular Rila mountains – the highest mountains in the Balkan peninsula. But it is worth mentioning that there are 360 degree views from the property. The area is comprised of residential houses in the main and the neighbours are friendly and welcoming. There are shops, bars, restaurants and spas within walking distance.
The house sits at the Western part of the plot which seems much larger than the nominated 558 sq.M, and overlooks it’s large, walled and private garden which is laid mainly to lawn but has a large quantity of fruit trees including apple, pear and cherry. There is also an assortment of bushes and other plants and trees. There is a small treehouse construction and a storage shed at the back of the plot. There is a double gate entrance to the plot from the road leading to off-road parking at the side of the house.
There is a large terrace at the rear of the house and there is also a built-in BBQ/pizza oven area with a double sink and seating – perfect for outdoor enjoyment in both Summer and Winter.
The pictures do the talking, but in summary the Ground floor comprises a semi open plan kitchen and living room with both a big fireplace and also a woodburner. The kitchen has high breakfast bars which won’t be to everyone’s liking but can easily be removed. I would imagine the incoming buyer would want to redevelop the existing ground and first floors. Also on the ground floor is a large room that could be used for various purposes.
The next floor up has three double/twin bedrooms and a bathroom area with plumbing. This entire floor is also in need of renovation, but not excessively. The floors are all generally satisfactory and will clean up. Money will need to be spent in the bathroom area.
The top floor follows an almost identical layout to the first floor. Three bedrooms and a double bathroom with the difference being that the second bathroom is accessed frrom the main bedroom creating and en-suite master. On this level, renovations have started in earnest, including the installation of double glazing. Bathrooms are in an almost finished state.
This is a LOT LOT LOT of house for the money. Yes there is work to do, but I would not be put off because this will be an outstanding house when it is finished. The owners installed a brand new roof on this property and the floors on all levels are solid concrete beneath either the tiles or wood. The construction is solid. The main money areas will be in double glazing, finishing in some rooms, decorations. But make no mistake, this is not a rural unconnected ruin with no services. It is a beautiful, very large and comfortable house located on the quiet periphery of a very popular hot mineral water spa town, where properties do not come to the market frequently. Estimated cost to complete the renovation is €20-30,000.
