This week’s property is a home with options – a three-floor home in the village of Ribno with three apartments, great views and not far from one of the most famous and visited spots in Slovenia, Lake Bled.
While “holiday rental” is perhaps one’s first thought when looking at this arrangement – as each apartment is self-contained and fully-equipped – I have friends with older children and the same kind of property for whom this layout has served as a perfect family home, with enough space and facilities for privacy and independence, while keeping everyone close for communal meals and activities. That said, the house could easily be converted from three apartments to one large house.
Currently on the market for €360,000, the property is being handled by Think Slovenia, who describe it as follows:
Wonderful family home divided into three apartments in an elevated position and views on both sides in the picturesque village of Ribno, just 5 mins drive from Bled. This three-storey house is currently converted into three separate apartments each on its own floor, ideal for short or long term rental. The apartments are fully equipped and well looked after.
The ground floor apartments consists of a bathroom, kitchen, one bedroom and large living area. Large French doors in the living room lead out onto the large terrace overlooking the mountains, perfect for relaxing on hot summer evenings. The upper floor apartment consists of two bedrooms, bathroom, open plan kitchen with dining and living area and two balconies with stunning views over the village and mountains beyond. The middle floor apartment has one bedroom with kitchen, bathroom, living and dining area. An attractive 500 m2 garden surrounds the house and offers great mountain views. The house has been converted in a way so that if desired it could easily be changed back into a single family residence.
The village of Ribno offers various restaurants / bars and a bakery with an appealing secluded quiet atmosphere whilst being just a 5-minute drive away from the attractions and amenities of Lake Bled. The region gives opportunities for numerous summer and winter activities, from skiing and cross country, hiking, cycling, water sports on Lake Bled and Bohinj, or just relaxing, surrounded by stunning unspoiled alpine scenery. The highway is just 10 minutes’ drive, and with regard to skiing there are three resorts just 30 minutes away, while Ljubljana can be reached in 40 minutes. A great opportunity to purchase a spacious three-apartment house set up to make immediate rental income or as a permanent residence in one of the most sought after locations of Slovenia.
