This holiday home for sale in Croatia is truly a gem on the market! This is a traditional wooden house, which was relocated here in 2017 to start its second life as a very successful tourist accommodation within the boundaries of Plitvice Lakes National Park. Guests book this place because of the location, stretching along 150 meters of pristine Korana river bank, right in front of the house. With the first waterfall at a mere 32 meters upstream, this property is the first privately owned house which the clear, fish-filled azure-blue waters originating from Plitvička Jezera meets, after which it continues to beautify the idyllic and picturesque village of Korana, with its waterfalls, wooden bridges and authentic watermill.
The property is at the end of a dead end street in just about the most serene environment one could imagine, yet at only 1 km from the main road which connects Plitvička Jezera with Zagreb and the coast (D1), and at only 3.3 km from the entrance to the park itself. The village Korana sits at the bottom of the valley between forested steep mountains, embracing its namesake river with just over a dozen houses.
Traditional wooden house
The traditional wooden house (50 m² + attic) is in a great condition, and was fully renovated in 2018, upon relocation. The entrance leads us to a small hallway, providing access to the bedroom straight ahead, and the dining room with kitchen on the left. The kitchen features a stove top, oven and dishwasher. The dining room contains a wood stove. The living room provides access to the spacious bathroom, with a walk-in shower, toilet, wash basin and a washing machine. The bedroom ceiling harbours a hatch, through which the attic can be accessed. It is possible to develop the attic.
This property contains 2 parcels. The first parcel measures 1,303 m² and is entirely within the building zone. Given the size of this parcel, it is possible (and allowed) to add a second, similar house. The second parcel measures 671 m² and is within the agricultural zone. Adjacent to the house are 2 terraces, with a 3rd terrace with pergola a little closer to the river and next to the barbecue. Just ahead of the 3rd terrace is a staircase leading into the river with a little plateau where you could sit down and gaze over the river or admire the wildlife. A few metres away is a table with benches, providing the perfect spot for a romantic dinner. The property is fenced and has a gate, there is plenty of parking for about ten cars.
