House Villa for sale, Oprtalj , 1 200 000 €
Istrian history has left numerous treasures in form of traditional stone houses of former households. And they have a fantastic and invaluable potential for anyone who knows how to recognize, harness and transform them into something special. This villa in the vicinity of the town of Livade, which we have in our offer, has such a story. Several old stone houses were merged in 2011 into a magnificent object of magical beauty, surrounded by the beauty of untouched nature, from which there is a spectacular view of the beauties Istria is rightly proud of.
Each piece of the former traditional architecture has been restored with special care and top quality materials that have allowed the villa, with all its beauty, to blend in with the surrounding nature. Thus a true paradise of 420 square meters has been created, surrounded by as much as 24,000 square meters of beautiful, green garden. The villa is characterized by a distinctive Mediterranean style in which the elements of modern architecture are refined and wisely woven in. There is an outdoor swimming pool that overlooks the picturesque hills, vineyards and olive groves, as well as a smaller whirlpool in an intimate and covered area directly next to the house, ideal for unforgettable moments of relaxation with priceless views.
The villa consists of a main, large house and another, smaller, which is intended as a guest house. The main house has three bedrooms with associated en suite bathrooms, a living room with a nice, fireplace that is an interesting combination of rustic and modern, a high-ceiling dining room with a fantastic rustic table for up to ten people and a modern, state-of-the-art kitchen and there is also a special addition - a wine cellar. The smaller guest house has a bedroom and a bathroom.
This property is a unique blend of tradition, comfort and modern luxury, and in order to tell a story together with the surrounding nature, large glass surfaces are everywhere, giving the impression that all the exterior beauties are in fact an inseparable extension of the house. The layout of the rooms is further contributing to this, since practically every one of them has a direct connection to the outside. In several places in the central courtyard you have an oasis for sitting and resting, perfect for lunch, dinner, or just enjoying a coffee or a glass of wine. On warm days, the summer kitchen with barbecue is the place to be. On colder days, comfort is provided by floor heating.
Each step of the villa's interior provides a very interesting creation with every detail projected. Modern details are lightly and fluidly coupled with old ones, which in this combination have received some new energy. It is with the pieces of traditional furniture that the modern details of vibrant colors come to the fore, all of which provides a warm, homely atmosphere. Numerous carefully preserved stone elements also contribute to this and the entire space is breathtaking and full of natural light and life.
To put it simply, this villa is a masterpiece of Mediterranean architecture and the present-day notion of so much desired, comfortable living in a natural environment.
