Croatia property for sale, A large detached hillside house in Mađarevo
Ref: 0954 Madarevo
High above the town, a beautifully equipped and decorated home with lovely views. No company required for foreign ownership.
Perched high on a hillside above the town of Mađarevo, part of the last foothills of the southern Alps, the backdrop is the expansive Marof valley and out to the distant range of hills and its peak of Ivanščica. This view is from the local roadway which leads down to the little town below.
The main entrance door is located to the left of this image and is on the same level is this terrace. It has just been re-tiled and the canopy added, the fencework is soon to be completed. A sunny place to be, it faces south by south-west.
Starting at the mid-level, the interior is dominated by this very spacious main day room/lounge. Featuring windows to the south and west walls, it is both large and very bright. As is the case throughout the house, the walls, ceilings, fixtures and fitting are all of high quality and in first class condition. No cracks, no dampness, no problems. The floor is laid with new-ish parquet flooring and, of course, is in spotless condition.
This room is at the north-east corner and was, until recently, a pedicurist salon. It's future use is a matter for you to decide but the good standard ceramic floor tiling may be of use in support of your ideas. As is the case throughout, all is clean, in excellent shape, it has a modern wood-framed doubled glazed window, modern radiator plus the usual array of electric outlets. The features are true for all rooms.
On the south-east corner is this good sized bedroom. Currently with two single beds there is still adequate room to move around. The floor is laid with a different style of parquet.
The mid level bathroom is large and bright and near fully tiled. It has a built-in shower cubicle, wash hand basin, WC, storage space and is the home of the washing machine and heating boiler installation - as is traditional in Croatia.
The final mid level room is this large kitchen which has direct access to the main living room via the archway (right of pic). The floor is tiled with heavyweight ceramics, there is an all-round tiled splash-back. Not of the latest design but all the fixtures are of high quality and durability. The large window (behind the camera position) gives plenty of natural light.
The mid level 'L' shaped hallway leads to all rooms, this is one leg of the 'L' showing the main entrance door, ceramic tiled floor, staircase and some very smart under-stairs sliding storage units. The stairs and handrails are of natural wood.
Moving to the upper level, the landing sits directly above the mid level hallway, this view is in the opposite direction to the image above. Parquet flooring, good natural light, adequate space and excellent all round condition renders this yet another pleasing place. The 'L' shape seen at the far end to the right is repeated below on the mid level. The door at the far end is typical of all the interior doors, each is of natural wood as are the frames and reveals.
The master bedroom is very large and beautifully appointed. Parquet flooring, a contoured ceiling line and all lit well by a window and doorway which leads to a private balcony. The vista from the balcony is shown further down this web page.
The upper level has a second bedroom of good size. The flooring is parquet, a large window gives good natural light.
This house boasts two full-sized bathroom, this is the upper floor version. Similarly 90% tiled, it contains a bath (instead of a shower cubicle), WC and wash hand basin. There are no other utilities here as in the case of the mid level bathroom. Natural light is provided by a ceiling fitted Velux style window.
This was something of a surprised to us, we expected to find one or two further bedrooms, instead there is a huge room laid out in a similar way to a day room/lounge. It appears the house was used as two separate living spaces although there is no kitchen on this level, at least not now. For lovers of massive master bedrooms, this is your dream opportunity. The door at the far end leads to a small room which is a good fit for a walk-in wardrobe. We have numerous other photographs available should you wish to see other views and details. Just contact us and we will send them to you.
Walking down the garden steps from the main entrance door brings you to this courtyard located beneath the mid level terrace (see above). The large door leads to the interior of the sub-basement.
Behind the camera position is the bulk of the garden which, being on a hillside, is a little steep but not so much that you'll need a mountain goat to cut the grass.
The sub-basement has a full height ceiling and good sized window. It has been well decorated and cared for this is a useable space for whatever activities you have in mind. There is a water supply with drainage, adequate electric outlets and ceramic tiled flooring. This image shows about half the available space.
As mentioned above, this is the view from the master bedroom looking out over the Marof valley to the distant hills of Varaždin county.
