In need of renovation Petrota Evros

Asking Price 24,950 EUR - Subject to Contract

Three bedroom house on two floors with panoramic views of Evros

Constructed just after World War II this compact house has recently come on the market together with its next door twin neighbor. Each property is owned by one of two brothers - one went to work in Germany while the other stayed at home - but this property on offer, is the nicer of the two and has been partially renovated and is presently used as a holiday home. It is for sale together with the existing furniture.

From the photographs you can see that it is very much a village property in a good solid state of repair, but needing partial alteration in order to make it a modern home for all year occupation. The property is sound, water tight and dry, with no ownership issues.

In order to bring it up to specification, it would require a modern heating system, further electrical installations, a roof mounted radiation panel and hot water tank for summer use, and air conditioning. Internal access to the lower ground floor is however desirable and achievable through the wooden raised ground floor accommodation. The present wooden shutters and windows are in good order and work, but modern plastic or aluminium windows would improve the property and security.

Overlooking the 'vasty fields' of Evros, you can see both Edirne and Svilengrad in the distance. Sitting above the Hill Village of Petrota it nestles beneath the Greek Rhodopi Mountain, and is in walking distance of local amenities, including two local food shops, restaurants and cafes. There is a Chemist shop in nearby Ormenio together with a Polyclinic in Dikea, and there is a regular bus service to Orestiada. Those with a car can do their major shop, either in Lidyl or Carrefour in Orestaida, or at Billa and Penny Wise in nearby Svilengrad in Bulgaria. They are both within a twenty minute drive from the village.

Even during the Turkish occupation this village was wholly Greek although the surrounding lands were occupied by Turkish farmers prior to the Great Migration.
