This authentic stone house is over 100 years old and is located in a quiet side street in a village called Galižana near Fažana, the Brijuni National Park and Pula, the capital of Istria. It was completely renovated in 2011 (with further work done in 2014) and offers a charming home.
The entrance door to the courtyard is made of wrought iron. From there you can walk to a glazed winter garden (12.85 m2) with sliding door and windows and a small garden / courtyard with roses and herbs and a cozy seating area (20.50 m2). The house is surrounded by high walls and therefore offers pleasant privacy.
There is also a 4.6m2 storage room with a toilet and wash basin and large shelves. Alternatively, this room can also be converted into a sauna (installations are prepared) and / or a jacuzzi can be added to the garden.
The center of the ground floor is a kitchen (14.10 m2) with custom-made cupboards, dining area and original wooden stairs that lead to the 1st floor.
The kitchen ceiling has original restored wooden beams.
Between the kitchen and the winter garden is a cozy living room (14.35 m2) and a small bathroom with shower. The living room has a large glass door so the room is cozy and bright. A sofa bed offers space for 2 people! A great place to accommodate guests.
On the first floor is a second bathroom with shower (2.25 m2) and a small room (11.60 m2) that has access to a large terrace (24.95 m2). Ideal for sun worshipers! The current owners use the room to get dressed and as a small home office.
A (narrow and quite steep) original wooden staircase leads to the 2nd floor or the attic, which has been refurbished. This space gets used as a bedroom (14m2) and has high ceilings with the original wooden beams. From the second floor you have a beautiful view over the old town to the sea and the Brijuni Islands. The roof was renewed in 2014 with 10cm insulation.
The house was completely refurbished in 2011 and has been upgraded further in 2014. In addition to the preserved old structural elements, new concrete slabs, a new roof, new plaster on the stone walls, new installations for electricity, water and sewage were added. There is satellite TV, air conditioning with inverter on the 1st and 2nd floor, a wood burning stove and internet with fiber cable.
The furniture shown in the pictures is not included in the offer.
A small garage belongs to the property next to the house. The inside dimensions are 5,4 m long, 2,55 m wide (approx. half the length), narrowing to 1,7m width at the end.
The village is connected to Pula by bus and train. There are several shops, café bars, a fitness center as well as a large church and several chapels. There are marked cycle paths around the village to the surrounding villages, along with vineyards, olive groves and beautiful nature. The sea, several beaches and Pula with a Roman amphitheater are only 10 minutes away by car or 20 minutes by bike. Pula Airport is 20 minutes away. This is an ideal place for people who love the charm and tranquility of an authentic Istrian village and at the same time want to be close to tourist offers, the sea and Pula.
This is a great opportunity to buy a beautiful holiday home either for tourists or for year-round use at a very affordable price.
