16th-century stone house in Korčula old town, first row to the sea
Unique opportunity: Beautiful 16th-century stone house in Korčula old town, first row to the sea.
This 16th-century stone house is located on the promenade just above the sea, on the very edge of the historic old town of Korčula. Location offers a fantastic view - of the sea and the nearby islets in the first plan and then a bit further of Pelješac and the imposing St. Elijah hill that leans over Korčula-Pelješac sea channel as a mythic guardian.
In front of the house is a promenade with numerous restaurants and bars with local, autochthonous specialties as well as small local shops with souvenirs and traditional island products.
House consists of four floors connected by a staircase. First storey is a living and dining room with kitchen separately. Second storey consists of two bedrooms and a bathroom with a toilet. On the third storey there are also two bedrooms, and on the fourth storey, which is the attic, there are two rooms that can be converted into a separate apartment or two more bedrooms. The residential area of the house is 191.5 m2 size.
Each floor has a beautiful view of the sea, as well as (apart from the attic) high ceilings. The old times spirit feels every step of the way - in small wall niches with patient faded figurines and decorations, in winding stairs leading to an unusual secret room in the attic that enters through the narrow passage and can be easily transformed into an atelier, home library or simply a lounge room with the stunning sea view.
First floor enters onto a spacious open terrace which offers a bit of privacy but also an immediate experience of Korčula old town's life and a typical Mediterranean environment. On the back of the house, in the heart of the old town, there is a secret garden of 61 m2, with orange, olive and peach groves. In addition, the property includes four adjacent building lots as well as a 140 m2 ruin.
Due to its location (first row to the sea and in the old city center), history and appearance, this house represents a truly unique opportunity - after renovation, it can become a beautiful home, a family house in the heart of one of the most beautiful Adriatic medieval towns, or a high quality boutique hotel with one of building plots converted into a pool etc. Of course, it's also possible to combine these two uses and merge pleasure and work, house is big enough for both.
