The lounge has a 3 seater, 2 seater settee & armchair, with coffee table, TV and TV stand, satellite and DVD player. The lounge is orientated towards the log fire which gives the house the central heating, but there are also electric oil heaters on days when one does not want to make the fire. The dinning room consists of 6 solid chairs and a wooden dinning table. The house comes with its own plot of land with 1 parking space off road. The Gated community is run by a management company providing every need including security and & 3 types of recycling bins.From the front door one walks into a spacious entrance hall leading to the lounge and bedrooms. To the left is a large Store room with dryer and loads of space for ski equipment or other items.This property sits in the middle of 12 villas on a gated community just 20 minutes drive below Borovets and 5 minutes to Dolna Banya where there are hot mineral spas and the new Jack Nichlas golf course is being built. There are also plans for a further golf course in the next few years. Behind the development is a large fishing lake.The development sits near the main road from Dolna Banya to Borovets, just outside the village of Maritsa. From here its 1 hours drive to Sofia and the airport.The Climate - this development sits at about 700 m above sea level. In winter one can enjoy the short 20 minute drive to the top of the mountain for skiing. Typical temperatures are from Zero to minus 5 degrees C at this height, but the air is dry and so it does not feel as cold as the temperature suggests. Even in winter one gets more sun than we get here in the UK and the sun is stronger when it comes out. Summer temperatures reach up to 35 degrees C, but again its a dry heat so its very pleasant. Just a few miles away is a hotel with outdoor pool and bar for all to enjoy. The Pool is heated by hot natural springs. The difference with the Bulgarian climate is that you get to see the sun a blue sky much more often. You can also sit out late at night outside as its often warm enough from May to October. Last Nov 08 it was still 20 degrees C during the daytime and in Aug/Sept when the UK was overcast for weeks on end there was blue sky nearly every day here.This is a most beautiful setting overlooking the snow capped mountains of Borovets. There are no neighbouring houses as this development sits right in the green belt. The air quality here is very good. A viewing trip is essential to appreciate just how pretty this setting is.Just 2 minutes drive away is the town of Raduil. This town is due to get a ski lift in the future as part of the Super Borovets project.The beauty of this property is that it enjoys both seasons, with skiing in winter and golf, walking, fishing and swimming in summer. Suggested rental rates in peak season are £500 / week and £300 in low seasons.We have many pictures of the house and the area. Please feel free to ask for more pictures.A German company have made plans to build a huge indoor spa just five minutes way (see photos), making use of the hot natural spring water that rises from the ground at 70 degrees C.There is a wall safe in the property plus a key lock box on the front door for use if letting out. The property is protected by an alarm system which calls out the local security company plus there is 24 hour guard on site plus roller gates at both entrances.A management company takes care of cleaning and rentals and maintenance issues at a cost of £900 per year.This villa is perfect also for retirement and the easy life. Rates, management (£900 p.a.) , water and electric would come to about £2500 a year. The management company provide 24 hour security, take care of the lawns and any external issues, plus are there to help with any maintenance issues, supplying fire wood, satellite, internet, cleaning and shopping.The villa is of a solid concrete construction with good insulation and double glazing.There is a very good reception here for mobile phones and a wireless internet. With food and drink very cheap, one could live off £5000 a year here including all other expenses.Bulgaria is due to get the Euro in January 2010, which should give another boost to the economy and property prices.
