House for sale in Saschiz - 35'000 Euro

This sturdy Saxon-built house on the main road towards Sighisoara would ideally suit a family or someone looking to start up a smallholding. Many of the houses built by the Saxons were purpose-built for self-sufficiency and therefore have many of the necessary utilities and features, such a vineyards, fruit trees, animal pens, grain storage areas (note the system of pulleys in the back yard for raising grain sack for storage in the loft) and so on. Although this property will naturally suffer a little from passing traffic, it extends back quite a way giving the garden spectacular views of the valley behind. The house itself comprises three rooms upstairs and a hall, two of the room being around 25m2 each. Downstairs there are another two rooms and a large cellar. Another separate building contains another rooms, a bathroom, and a pantry.

The cobbled courtyard holds the well from which water can be pumped to feed the bathroom, a large barn, cow sheds, pig pens, and a garden with grape vines and fruit trees. Since the departure of the current owner to Germany, the house and grounds have been looked after by a neighbour (who has stored his corn there, as is visible in the courtyard photos). the house and lands themselves amount to 1885m2 representing a larger than usual property. The land behind the barn extends down the valley to the river.

Positive points: Large area of land, good views, no dirt roads, good price for size of property, good condition (although needs decorating to taste)
Negative points: On main road
