Don’t lose out on this beautiful house.

It comes with two bedrooms (one master and another large possibly single room), two bathrooms (one is a wet room), a hallway and kitchen/diner/living space.  Both bedrooms have their own separate bathrooms.  Timber beamed ceilings, with tasteful blue limewashed walls run throughout the house.  All period features have been retained, including old locks, handles, windows and doors.  The house was built approximately 115 years ago.  Through the gated archway is a long courtyard leading to a 125 year old three-roomed barn which has been recently restored.  Behind the barn is an orchard with a variety of trees/bushes: apple, pear, plum, rosehip, amongst others.  The orchard leads up the side of the valley, behind which are various paths leading to the Cindrel, and across the hills to the plains towards Sebeş. Total surface area of the property and orchard is approximately 660sq/m.

The property has a large attic space which could be converted into three or four further rooms. and the barn attic has been recently converted into summer living space, which could be subdivided.

This property can be run as a Gite or easily converted into a Pension/B&B.
