SOLD H063 - Herceg Novi, Bijela - Stone House for Sale in Montenegro SOLD
Quietude and sweeping views of Boka Bay await you in this stone historic house plus ruins set in the most beautiful village above Bijela, which is quickly developing to resort standards. You will wake to the sound of bird songs as the sun rises and watch the sunset. Yet grocery stores, shopping, restaurants, hotels, and more are only 20 minutes away by foot (to the shore—25 minutes by foot or a little over 5 minutes by car). The ruins of the gumno, where villagers met to make decisions, could potentially be reconstructed as a 3-story tower with 20m2 each of the 3 stories. The 182 m2 stone house is ready for renovation to become a luxury villa and now stands at 2-stories next to a 50m2 ruin, both of which could be 3-stories and could possibly be joined or separate structures. The terrace in front would be ideal for an infinity-edge pool. Start putting your vision on the property immediately, as no building permit is necessary if you follow the same footprint. But if you desire, more could be built on the 831 m2 plot, which is zoned as buildable land to 80% of plot size (3 stories), plus there’s an adjoining private parking area for 919 m2 in total. Perfect for a family villa, compound, and/or development. We can even recommend a trusted local contractor who speaks English and Russian. The village is accessed by a municipal road, 1/3 reconstructed in 2020, and plans are underway with the municipality to complete its renovation. The village is small and 50% of it has already been reconstructed. Nearby is the 14th-century Church of the Intercession of the Virgin and the village of Bijelske Krusevice, where Pope Sixtus V is chronicled to have been born in 1521. As there is an existing house, with the purchase of this property, Montenegrin residency could be yours right way! This is an amazing opportunity as it’s nearly impossible to find another property with such sweeping elevated views that can never be obstructed, but which is also so close to all amenities.
Ideally located: 7 km to Portonovi, 9 km to Porto Montenegro, and 21 km to Luštica Bay—the fastest-growing luxury destinations in Europe. Only 14 km to Tivat Airport and 40 km to Dubrovnik Airport."
