In small Krmed, a picturesque village only a few minutes’ drive from Bale and Rovinj, a renovated stone house is for sale that can host 8 people in four bedrooms and has a beautiful yard surrounded by greenery and old dry stone walls. The location of the house is very pleasant both for a permanent stay and only for the summer months - the proximity of Rovinj and Pula also means that numerous attractions, beautiful beaches, excellent restaurants and numerous public services are within easy reach.

The house was bought in 2010 by a married couple from the Netherlands who spent the next two years restoring and furnishing it with the help of local craftsmen, so that the house was completed at the beginning of 2012. In the following years, the owners used it with great pleasure during the summer months, and at the same time they maintained it well, so the house still looks brand new.

The exterior of the house was renovated in such a way as to emphasize the stone structure of the walls, and high-quality wooden joinery was placed on the openings. The interior exudes a modern style and seems extremely spacious and airy for this type of house. The living space is spread over three floors, of which the upper two are reserved for the sleeping area, and on the ground floor there is a living area with a kitchen, dining room and bathroom.

The front yard is a true Mediterranean oasis that offers swimming in the pool, sunbathing on the terrace or hanging out with friends under a pergola overgrown with wisteria. It is especially attractive to watch the sunset, whose rays pass through the crowns of large pine trees and cast a magical light on the pool.

In the back yard, there is a small parking lot for several cars, and there is also a terrace from which you enter the hall. The parking area is closed by a metal gate with a motor drive, and along the opposite wall, large oleanders full of colorful flowers have grown.

We recommend this property to everyone who is looking for a characterful, stone house where they can smell the Mediterranean and spend the warm months leisurely.
