The property is completely fenced. The house has its own discreetly planted garden and paved courtyard.
The house has a 15 cubic meter (6×3 m) oval 80cm deep plastic / plastic recessed pool built in 2019. The pool is heated by a solar collector (which is aesthetically pleasing to the outside fence).
Below the house is a dry, cool cellar converted into a 13.39 sqm wine cellar. On the site, around the house, there is a paved courtyard for 4-5 cars that can be conveniently accessed through the car entrance. The car is protected by an elegant sunblind.
The house also has a 54.38sqm double garage with two doors, which can be used to store two larger cars at the same time. The car garage is carved into the rock wall next to the building, the garage can only be accessed from the yard of the building, so during the “legalization expiration” the garage is on the property ownership sheet with a special note.
The foundations of the house were built decades ago, and the previous owners continuously expanded the building until in 2004/2005 a Hungarian / Croatian construction company completely renovated it and put it in its present form.
The house was built on a solid concrete foundation, partly under cellar. It was built with brick walls reinforced with concrete elements, and the corridors were decorated with glass bricks. The floors and roofs of the house are supported by concrete slabs. The roof is classic Mediterranean tile, durable, flawless. Previously, all doors and windows in the house were made of wood, but in 2018, the exterior windows and patio doors on the 2nd floor were replaced with the highest quality aluminum door and window set (door / shutter / mosquito net).
In 2013, the property underwent a “legalization / survival approval procedure” in accordance with Croatian regulations. As a result of the procedure, the exact and thorough technical drawing or technical description of the house is 100% identical to the data in the register of the authorities. According to the land register, the total size of the site is 552 sqm.
Water – sewer: The house receives the drinking water from the central water supply of the city, which supplies the garden faucets and 6 apartments with additional internal (6) submersible water meters. The plumbing system was built during the 2004/2005 renovation. The house is not drained yet, a huge concrete digester in the garden absorbs the wastewater. When the garden pool was built in 2019, a complete drainage system for a pumped sewer system was completed up to the site boundary. Based on the city’s sewerage plan, street connection will be possible in the 1st quarter of 2020! By law, the owner has 1 calendar year to connect to the city sewer system.
Electricity: The house has a central electricity meter and each of the 6 apartments has its own power meter.
Gas: the house does not have its own gas system, the hot water for bath and kitchen is solved through 6 electric boilers in each apartment. The house currently has no heating system, but the air conditioning in all 6 apartments is capable of cooling and heating.
TV and Internet: The satellite antennas on the roof are wired, all apartments have built-in sockets, but these are currently unused. There is a wireless Wi-Fi system in the house, served by a local T-group subscription.
The 1/1 property is owned by a Croatian-registered Krk company.
The company that operates the house exercises ownership of the property without litigation or charges. The sale of the property can be solved by the free sale and purchase of the shares of the company owning the ownership rights.
The company is accounted for in Krk, one of the best, most trusted accountants in the city, keeping the company’s books, so for the last 12 years the company’s finances have been in good shape.
The company specializes in commercial hosting but does not do this for this house, see operating point below.
According to Croatian law, the property has to undergo a categorization process to be used as a commercial hosting property. This is a form of official certification and a license to commercialize a property. This type of permit is granted to the house itself, regardless of the operator.
The property was previously classified as a 3-star property, which was lost at the time of the change of ownership, as the new owner currently does not operate it for tourism purposes, and has been used exclusively for private family purposes for the past 10 years. Thanks to the swimming pool and other developments that have been built since then, the house has a chance of up to 3+ rating, which determines the pricing options.
The current owners can provide all the legal, financial and financial advice to the Buyers for a successful process. Providing a proper deposit and bearing the costs, current owners can obtain all permits to operate the house.
