Brac, old stone house for sale, 55.000 €, ID: 190
- 200 m²
- 2 km
- Sea view
We are proud to bring to the market this rare opportunity to purchase a house from the tiny village of Dol on the island of Brac, the closest island to the main town of Split, in Dalmatia. This village was once an affluent community from a time when the poorest fishermen had houses on the coast and wealthier tradesmen and merchants had their homes inland. It is 2 kilometres inland, facing the main land and Split adjacent to the now bustling town of Postira. Dol has largely been left off the tourist trail and consists of a few unusually large and well built properties, many of which have been untouched since tourism began and because of this uniqueness the village has been designated a protected area. It has two of the islands most famous Konobas (local cuisine restaurants).
The house has a total floor area of 200m sq, and consists of 3 levels, ground, first and attic. Each floor is 70m sq. It sits on a plot of 200m sq. There is no car access adjacent to the building, but plenty of available access nearby. This old Dalmatian stone building needs complete internal renovation and there are no limitations on the way this can be done. The external walls seem entirely sound, but would need to be properly inspected by a surveyor to confirm this.It is connected to main services of water, sewage, and electricity.
There is a superb view down the valley to the sea at Postira. Postira has many shops, restaurants, post office, bank, Doctors and other amenities expected of a thriving community. It is walking or cycling distance for most people.
This property is an amazing opportunity for someone who wants to create something special in a superb location, here in Croatia.

More about Brac

The beach at Bol is featured on most Croatian Tourist material known as 'Zlatini Rat' or 'Golden Horn'. Real estate in Bol is particularly sought after as it has become a centre for 'activity holidays' and is packed throughout the summer - http://www.bol-croatia.com/windsurfing-sports.htm.
There is a small airport on the island for private planes. The most popular property sold on Brac are holiday apartments near the coastal villages, often recently built. A tightening of building rules means that less are now being built, so people are now looking for old Brac property to refurbish. On the island of Brac cottages are often seen along the coast and these occasionally come on the market but are keenly sought after.
Brac real estate is considered a good investment as Croatia is looking to improve her tourist industry.
