House for sale in Mureni - 20'000 Euro

Mureni (see the map on the Maps tab) is a small peaceful village situated about 16km from Sighisoara. The village itself is just a short drive off the main road running from Brasov to Sighisoara which means it benefits from excellent access in all weather, but without suffering from the noise and bustle of through traffic during busy periods. The house is also just off the main road leading through Mureni (its a two-street village of approximately 100 houses) on the road that leads to the village of Feleag. The house used to operate as a village bar and the cellar has therefore been converted into a sitting area. The house could continue to be used as such, for the more adventurous investor, or alternatively the space would make an excellent family eating area or or kitchen/diner (when the weather isn't conducive to eating outside). In the garden there is also a brick-built summer kitchen. The house was renovated in 2006, including the roof, but some of the upstairs rooms need organising.

The house is reasonably small, with two rooms upstairs and two rooms downstairs (including the cellar bar) with a total surface area of 70m2.  It does, however, have some very attractive features, including lovely wooden shutters on the upstairs windows, hardwood floors, large solid interior doors, and exposed beams. One of the downstairs rooms would probably have to be converted into a bathroom and utility rooms for permanent occupation, leaving the upstairs rooms to be used as bedrooms, and the bar as a kitchen with seating and dining space. The land at the back contains a garden and grapevines, and has a surface area of around 1000m2, plenty of space for outdoor dining, a flower garden, and a decent-sized vegetable plot. The house would be suitable, therefore, as a summer house for a small family, or as a manageable project for a couple looking to retire to the countryside.

Positive points: Charming building with original features, quiet village, good road access, close to Sighisoara, could be used as a bar, excellent price, roof recently renovated
Negative points: Needs some work in order to have a bathroom and kitchen inside
