This week’s property is in the village of Škrbina, not far from Italy and settled between the Karst region and Goriška brda, the area often referred to as the Tuscany of Slovenia.
It’s a four-bedroom house with the character you’d expect from a property built in 1890, plus the comfort of one renovated in 2015. Just 15 minutes from the coast, and 90 to the nearest ski slopes, it could provide a new home for someone working or retired in the area, or serve as an income-producing holiday rental in a location that offers much to enjoy, from the views to the food and drink, the history and the cultural heritage.
The property is currently on the market for €520,000 and is being handled by Think Slovenia, who describe it as follows.
Old karst style country house in the village of Škrbina a few kilometres from Komen, in the heart of the wine-growing Karst region. The house is fully renovated and spreads over the floors with a large kitchen and dining area, living room with a fireplace, bathroom, one bedroom and sauna on the ground floor. The first floor includes two en suite bedrooms, both with balcony access, and there is another en suite bedroom in the loft.
The house is surrounded by a large garden that features a wood-burner, ample garden furniture, an outdoor kitchen with barbecue, and an outdoor jacuzzi, while there is a large wine cellar in the basement used as an entertainment room.
The area offers numerous walking and cycling activities around the Karst region with charming stone village of Štanjel only 10 km away, famous local food and wine, and with the Adriatic Coast only 15 km away from the village. The house is fully set up for tourist rental and offers excellent rental potential.
