Charming house in a unique location
If you need a quiet and cozy place with great potential as a holiday home or permanent residence in a unique location, this property might suit your plans. The house is situated in the historical town of Koprivshtica, one of Bulgaria’s tourist hotspots that has preserved its authentic character and is the perfect base for lovers of culture and nature.
The main building consists of a ground floor (105 m²) that was converted into a cozy “tavern” with an authentic fireplace, a bar, two toilets and two storage spaces.
On the first floor (80 m²) there is a recently installed kitchen with dining and living area, a hallway, a bathroom and two sleeping rooms.
The property has a garden of 482 m². At the back of the garden is a shed for the storage of firewood and tools.
A lot of renovations have already been done. The roof has been completely renewed and insulated in 2019, we installed a new kitchen, most of the electricity system has been rewired, the chimneys are newly built (2019), old canalization pipes have been replaced with a very good quality ones. We even changed the drinking water source and invested in modern materials suitable for freezing temperatures, so you have now the best drinking water at the best possible debit in town, without being worried that pipes can freeze in the winter when you might not be there.
Possible renovations left to future owners include the replacement of some windows and renovation of floorboards in the bedrooms. Also, the ground floor still needs some love and care, but could easily be converted into a second living unit, airBnB - studio or a working - space…. There is also a possibility to expand the building with two extra bedrooms. Based on the cost of the renovations we have done so far, we estimate the remaining costs at about 15 - 17. 000€, to bring everything up to present - day standards.
