We’ll confess that the three-bedroom property we’re throwing the spotlight on this week is very much toward the upper end of the top end of market, and unlikely to be seriously considered by anyone we’ve ever shared a room with, never mind a table, but that’s no reason not to take a look and wonder how or why someone would live here.
The location is one draw, near the Adriatic coast and just 30 minutes’ drive to either Italy or Croatia, and an hour to Ljubljana. It’s also rather strikingly designed, packed with features to make life more comfortable and luxurious, as expected given the price, one that would give Croesus pause, and for which a rounding error could keep a family well-fed for a year.
The property is currently on the market for 6.71 million EUR and is being handled by Slovenia Estates, who describe it as follows on their website:
