This authentic stone house features a unique location in Šišan, a small village 3 km (2 miles) from the sea and an unspoilt beach, 7 km (4 miles) from Pula, Istria's capitol, and 3 km (2 miles) from Ližnjan and Medulin. Pula international airport is a 20 minute drive away.
The property is in a quiet location in the centre of town, accessed by a cul de sac. There are stores, cafe's and a restaurant in the immediate vicinity. Plenty of marked bicycle trails in the area invite holiday makers to explore the beautiful region.
The house used to be the biggest and "richest" house in the village. It is detached and consists of 2 attached houses (which belong to the same owner). They offer more than 200 sqm (2150 sq ft) of buildable surface area. The existing building has 130 sqm (1400 sq ft) of buildable surface area with 402 sqm / 4325 sq ft living area on 2 floors plus a percentage of the attic space - the sides of the attic have a height of 1,7 m, the middle more than 2,5 m. In addition there is 36 sqm (385 sq ft) of buildable land to the right of the existing house (surrounded by a small stone wall) where a barn used to be. This land can be turned into an outdoor terrace or, with a corresponding building permit, into a living room with exit to an outdoor pool and terrace area.
According to the building code it is permissible for houses in this part of town to have 2 floors plus an attic. This means that the property could have a total of over 450 sqm (4800 sq ft) of living space! The plot itself is 586 sqm (6300 sq ft) and has been surveyed by a licensed land surveyor.
The owner has done a major reconstruction of the property in 2014. This included:
a completely new roof, 230 sqm/2475 sq ft total, with heavy wooden beams, wool thermal insulation and 2 roof windows,
gutters and downspouts,
a new first and second floor (with heavy wooden beams and 10 cm concrete floors),
reconstruction of the barn into a 40 sq m stone house apartment with bedroom, living room and bathroom,
a new wall around the front yard and many other details.
All further work depends on how the next owner wishes to use the property. A project proposal with detail interior design plans exists, including a list of all furniture, where to buy it and how much it costs, to convert the house into holiday accommodation with pool, which could be for up to 16-20 people. This scenario would generate a very high rental income.
