Edge of village location so it's peaceful but still close enough to take a short walk to one of the village shops, the bar or even the restaurant close by. The village is very much alive with 800 permanent residents a doctor, dentist, school, kindergarten, multiple bus services daily and more, there's even a couple of small museums and a grand theater where an amateur dramatics company put on plays regularly.

There are another 8 plots of land making up the 20,000sqms, many have had buildings on in the past and could be built on again as these buildings are still on the deeds. Many of the plots have been used for grazing or hay production and there are grants available from the local municipality if you choose to keep some for that reason. There are a large amount of fruit trees including walnut (which is a good cash crop), apples, pears, plums, quince, cherry, peach and more. Alternatively you could remove trees to open up the land further and provide firewood for years to come. There are 7 wells on the property which could be used for irrigation of crops and a spring directly outside of house number 1 that provides clean, drinkable and cold water all year round. The spring sits on a field of approximately 6 acres that is classed as communal land and can be used for more hay or the grazing of animals - There is no fee to pay to use this land.
Broadband internet with wifi connection is already fit in the property.
Both houses and land are offered for sale by the owner, who currently live on the property but wish to downsize. As a smallholding the property has worked well and produced a great variety of fruit and vegetables and also been a productive place to keep and breed livestock. The houses will be sold fully furnished including electrical items, bedding and everything you need to get you started, with the option of purchasing some of the livestock, - which include milking goats, pigs, rabbits and poultry. Should the new owner wish to they could continue with the business plan of opening an eco-campsite, some work has already been done on this project and the groundwork for 3 solar showers is in place as are the basics for 3 composting toilets in a section of land adjacent to house number 2. The property has the potential to become many things, or you could sell the plots separately and enjoy a good life - it's up you.
There is also plenty of space and permission to rebuild on some of the plots. So you could split the land up and sell off parts, giving a builder a great option to invest in Bulgaria.
Work is ongoing on the properties, and new pictures will be added as things are completed.
