Beautifully renovated | Outstanding location
A unique property and outstanding Times Featured Guesthouse business with ‘The Best View in the World’ is offered for sale in the stunning Eastern Rhodope Mountains, Europe’s most bio diverse region.
House: Built in 1970 by a master craftsman, this magnificent stone house is considered the pinnacle of its style anywhere in the region. The house boasts spacious rooms, high ceilings, large windows and 70cm thick stone walls that keep the interior cool in the hot Mediterranean summers and warm in winter. During renovations, the property was reroofed and has been fully modernised to a very high standard, including new wooden floors, windows, doors, plumbing, electricity, spacious fully tiled bathrooms and two custom hand made kitchens. All of the wooden furniture has been made locally and is bespoke for the property.
Split into two separate living spaces with external stairs, the ground floor consists of lobby/lounge area with wood-burner, large fitted kitchen with farmhouse style dining table, spacious bathroom with large bath and a double bedroom with wood-burner. The upper floor consists of a kitchenette, two large bedrooms and spacious shower-room with separate toilet.
Guesthouse: Listed by the Times as ‘One of Europe’s Top Twenty Remote Escapes’, the thoughtfully designed guest accommodation has gained an outstanding reputation with many returning guests. Although currently run as a ‘lifestyle business’, the guesthouse has huge potential for those that wish to capitalise on the excellent groundwork by the existing owners. The mountain retreat includes ownership of the very professional website and has had substantial investment in advertising and SEO activities over a 10 year period. The property can be used solely as a family home or holiday home if preferred.
Garden: The garden areas have been extensively landscaped and cleverly partitioned into working and relaxing areas. The working area of the garden has been enclosed by fencing and divided into 2 vegetable gardens, a 12-meter greenhouse together with stone built houses for chickens and other small livestock.
The garden has many established trees including cherry, mulberry, plumb, grape, quinces, pears, apples and walnut, which all produce abundant fruit and nuts. The greenhouse and vegetable gardens benefit from an automated irrigation system across 4 zones, via a control panel in the greenhouse.
A beautiful Mehana (covered outside eating area) with BBQ and 2 large wooden picnic tables allows outside dining for 10+ with wonderful views and shade. The large sun terrace provides a private area for sunbathing and stunning views of the mountains. Water and electricity have been installed ready for a pool addition. Also a golf tee has been constructed for the drive of your life!
Infrastructure: The electricity system has been modernised and the fully integrated water supply delivers fresh mountain spring water together with a 40-meter borehole and multi-pump system. The system is fully automated with a control panel that senses when the 8,000 litre reservoir requires topping up. The system ensures a constant supply of spring water and delivers power showers even after long periods of no rainfall. Both the borehole pump and house supply pump are still under warranty. The system is complemented with automated irrigation for the greenhouse and vegetable gardens.
Garage: A large garage allows parking for a tall 4x4 vehicle and has a large storage area above.
Workshop: The property also benefits from a purpose built workshop and wood store. There is ample storage for 20 tons of firewood, tools and equipment together with very substantial additional loft space.
Store Room: At the rear of the property is a storeroom for storage of food and beverages supplies, an additional freezer and the control panel for the borehole pump system.
Village: The village is quiet and sprawling benefitting from a recently tarmacked access road. Further roads are planned to allow vehicle access to tourist attraction, Devils Bridge and the nearby town, Ardino. The main town of Kardjhali with its restaurants, bars and numerous supermarkets is an hours drive and a number of the local mountain villages have small shops for basic supplies.
