A large detached house in a suburb of Ludbreg city.
Located on a quiet blind street within walking distance of the town centre.
View of the back of the house from the rear garden. Here the three levels are shown due to the shorter roof expanse of this side. The windows and doors reflect the general all-round condition in that they are functional but really need to be replaced to modern standards. The roof is tiled and is insulated where it covers the living spaces on the top floor. To the right is a large open upper terrace.
It can seen the ground floor is raised by about 1.5 metres above the level of the street and garden. This gives good headroom in the sub-basement.
We will enter the house at this rear entrance and show the interior in the order we encounter them.
The ground floor can be seen as four quarters, moving in a clockwise direction from the rear entrance door is this rear facing mid-sized room which as used only as a store by the current owners. As is the case in all the rooms, the walls and ceiling are in good condition with no cracks, dampness or other problems. The windows are twin paned wooden units in good-ish condition - certainly good enough for refurbishment if you like the traditional frames and roller shutters. The floor has real parquet. The house has full gas-fired central heating.
Moving round the central hallway, next up is this large front facing room which is currently the master bedroom. The walls, ceiling and windows are as described above, the good quality parquet is continued here. As can be seen by the large bed, sofa and full sized wardrobe units to two walls, this is a very large room.
Back to the central hallway and on to the 3rd quarter finds the other front facing room. The same good conditions of walls, windows, floors and ceiling are found here too. Clearly used as place for their grand-kids, the current owners clearly have far more space than they want.
Nicely tucked into the ground floor is a large bathroom/WC. In keeping with much of the property, it reflects its 1960s heritage but it very functional. Croatians nearly always locate the washing machine in the bathroom. This house has plenty of alternatives if you prefer.
Finally, the 4th quarter, a large and bright kitchen. The same is true in terms of general condition plus the units and fixtures are all of nice quality. Not space age but lovers of 'American' kitchens will not find such things in this region (at least not for sale!). Ceramic flooring is continued into the central hallway (partly seen at left) which leads to a small lower landing and the staircase.
The upper floor has this very spacious central hallway which gives access to all the upper rooms which include three bedrooms, the exterior terrace/balcony, the bathroom/WC and an access door to plenty of under-roof storage space without the need for a loft ladder.
There is a large window behind the camera. As before, the floor, walls, ceiling and ceramic floor are all in good shape.
Once again moving in a clockwise direction from the upper central hallway, the first room is this rear facing bedroom. Everything is in good condition having been updated more recently, this time the floor appears to be in a laminate.
The next room has also benefitted from recent decoration. The roof-line shows how the centre-line is not located in the middle of the building which leave this quirky ceiling feature. The windows faces to the side of the building.
The upper level 3rd and 4th quarters are combined into a single very large room which has space (far end of the image) for either an en-suite or kitchenette - as yet un-developed. The glass door (left) leads to the upper balcony/terrace. We are advised the original idea was to build the house with a separate upstairs apartment. This room would serve as the main day room/kitchen, the upper floor can be separated from the lower floor in that house has two entrance, one at the side (for the ground floor and sub-basement) and the other at the rear with its own stairway. The design and layout lend themselves well to either configuration.
The upper level balcony/terrace. There is a nice long view to the local vineyards (not shown), the locality clearly shows is a residential locale.
The upper floor bathroom is of a slightly later design than its ground floor equivalent, both are fully tiled. The same holds true in that everything is clean and functional.
Moving down to the sub-basement which includes 'his' man-cave. We use the word "sub" to demonstrate that, despite half the wall being lower than the ground level, the windows are adequately large and upright. The fact they are located at near-ceiling level is the only clue to the fact we are in the basement. This room is a favourite for 'Mr' and friends, particularly when the big match is on TV. There is no evidence of dampness (no smell of moisture) which makes this space useable for any purpose you wish.
There are four large sub-basement rooms, one as shown above, the other three are similar to this one. Again, despite being un-developed, they are each easily decorated and fitted out for any purposes you may wish.
The are a number of large walk-in rooms in addition to what we've shown here. This is a big house. We have numerous additional photographs of all the spaces here, just contact us if you wish to see more.
The house has driveways on both sides, this is a view of the rear garden area as seen from the right-hand drive. The shed and garage are in pretty good condition, the garden is flat and is well cared for. There a few fruit trees and a vegetable garden.
A view of "Station Street" with this house shown at left by the small pink tree. All the properties are of different shape and size and have green spaces at the front giving a feel of nice up-market residential street. The local railway station is located at the far end. We were there on a midweek day and found eight cars parked there, busy it isn't.
