A Most Exclusive Villa in Slovenia
Perched on a plateau and surrounded by luscious woodland, Hiša nad Sočo boasts one of the most breathtaking views of the stunning Soča river against the backdrop of the majestic Julian Alps that we have come across. The Villa has been carefully designed to take full advantage of this view and the area has a wonderfully energy about it.
With its own 300m long driveway and 3.6 hectares of gardens, comprising both wild fields and manicured lawns, the house is still just 2km from the beautiful Most na Soči and all its amenities, including a supermarket, bakery, butcher, cafes and restaurants.
The Villa combines the old and traditional with the modern luxuries of 21st century living. Full of fine antiques, the property itself is a huge, old, traditional farmhouse which has been lovingly and caringly restored, with no expense spared. Dating from the 19th century and with its thick walls and vaulted ceilings, the Villa is both warm in winter and cool in summer.
On the ground floor, the traditional hefty stone floor is warm underfoot thanks to underfloor heating, as are all the bathrooms. Here there is a large kitchen and formal dining room which seats 10 people Also on this floor is the laundry room, sauna, WC, wine cellar and an informal 'snug', complete with a huge plasma TV and giant bean bags.
A beautiful rustic oak staircase leads up to the first floor with its three ensuite bedrooms and wide floorboards. The showpiece of the top floor is a 200 year old parquet masterpiece taken from an old palatial house in Ljubljana. A kitchen, open log fire, huge comfortable sofa, Sky TV and wireless internet are also located on the top floor, as is the master bedroom. Both kitchens have beautiful stone sinks and work tops, and the ovens and hobs are extremely high-quality.

There is also a balcony, outdoor kitchen and eating area and many benches to sit and enjoy being outdoors. Numerous fruit trees growing in the grounds include kiwis, walnuts, apples and pears. Subsequently, an organic herb and vegetable garden set in a beautiful old ruin mean you can pick your own produce on a daily basis.
