Inland Croatia property for sale: A traditional village house at Ludbreg.
Ref: 1874 Selnik Ludbreg
A traditional style village house located at Selnik, about a three minute drive from the city of Ludbreg. Move in ready, laid out in the way villages houses were made in the last century.
The 'L' shaped layout is typical of the genre and makes for a sheltered and secluded outdoors area/terrace. Unseen from the road of from neighbours, this area is the heart of the property and is the place where people tend to spend a lot of time. It can be accessed directly from three of the major rooms (living room, hallway and bedroom) thus is the 'hub' of the house.
Viewed from a point deeper into the garden, the building to the left is the main structure and contains (looking from the near-ground back to far-ground) the workshop, the bedroom, the kitchen, hallway, reception room and finally the living room at the far end. To the right is a chicken house (at least we think so!), a store building and the garage.
The house as seen from the adjacent road is mostly screened by a pair of mature trees and hedges. The driveway is to the left.
If you peer through the trees from the pathway on the road, this is all you will see. The majority of this property is secluded from the road.
The main living room is located mostly in the 'L' section. Having large windows to three sides gives an unusual amount of natural daylight. Add to that the higher-than average ceilings, a bright and airy feel is the result.
Located in the corner of the 'L' is this large... let's call it a 'reception' room. As before, a large front facing window, high ceiling and a direct link to the hallway, the naturla light far exceeds that which is normal for traditional buildings such as this.
Moving deeper into the property, the next room is this hallway from which the bathroom is accessed. The double doors (right) lead directly onto the exterior terrace.
The bathroom/WC is located behind the hallway. They don't make them like this any more but, despite it's old style layout, everything is functional and quite efficient. The gas fired central heating system makes this and all the other rooms most comfortable in the winter.
Continuing on past the hallway we arrive at the kitchen. Relative to the size of the house, it is large enough for comfort and can contain a breakfast table and chairs. Again, it is of a style from some years ago but, as is the case of the bathroom, it is neat, efficient and functional.
The next room is the bedroom which is of good size and boasts a double-doors access to the terrace. This is the last room which is connected internally with the rest of the living areas. However....
Beyond the bedroom is a massive room which, until recently, was used as a workshop/store. It has plenty of natural light and shares the same high ceiling (they actually look a little higher) as the rest of the house. Whether you decide to continue with its utilitarian use or maybe you have ideas to convert it into living quarters of some kind, the potential is there - waiting for your imagination.
There is also a basement, accessed via an old style pub floor-level hatch. The ceiling is of multiple brick arch construction. There are other utility areas (store, chicken coop, garage, under-roof space). Please contact us for details.

The end of the building as seen from the end of the garden. The four windows and doorway give an idea of the scale of the workshop which lays within.
The garden is fenced off from the paddock located immediately behind the property. This photo was taken from the garden fence into the paddock.
