At the foot of the Hvar mountains, between Stari Grad and Jelsa, you will find the village of Vrbanj — population approximately 450. This is where you will find an old stone house nestling on the edge of this quiet, peaceful village — with magnificent sweeping views of the houses below and across to the island of Brac and the Croatian mainland. This historical property, which is circa 150 years old, is offered for sale fully restored and renovated to a spectacular standard. The listing includes the large main house, three separate and self-contained cottage apartments, PLUS a double-tiered courtyard and patio area with swimming pool. Main house description Generously sized and faithfully restored, the heart is the main house, which consists of three large floors of living space (each measuring 48 m²) with one more floor of reinforced attic space for storage. Ground floor: A large open-plan kitchen, dining area and utility room, with downstairs toilet and washroom. Wood-burning stove fitted to the fully-functioning chimney and large staircase leading to the first floor. First floor: An exceptionally spacious, fully air-conditioned open-plan living area. Real wood floors, spinning ceiling fans, a second wood-burner and feature staircase make this room welcoming, comfortable and beautiful in every season. With five shuttered windows, and a door leading outside and down to the terrace and apartments, it serves as both a conveniently placed hub for friends and visitors, and a blissful retreat from the high temperatures in the hottest months. A spiral staircase leads to the second floor. Second floor: A peaceful and airy space, with large windows, air conditioning and more ceiling fans, the second floor consists of the master bedroom, a large ensuite bathroom and a private outside terrace with panoramic views across the water. The bedroom boasts room enough for a queen-size bed and wall-to-wall fitted oak wardrobes/cupboards, while the ensuite bathroom includes both a jacuzzi-style bath and double shower cubicle. The private terrace overlooks the Croatian mainland and Brac island, making this a very special place to relax. Third floor — Attic space: Large floored and reinforced attic space. Plenty of storage, or possibility of converting the space. Cottages description The property includes three fully-furnished and equipped cottage apartments with varying levels of capacity (2 person — 4 person), which share a large courtyard patio and private swimming pool area. Each cottage is decorated to a very high standard and has its own kitchen and bathroom. The courtyard is a tranquil year-round sun trap and is planted with many mature flowering plants and hanging grape vines. Steps lead up from here to the pool area, where there are even more plants and more views! Note: the three cottage apartments are currently designed as self-contained holiday lets, but two of them could easily be joined with the main house to create a luxurious and extremely large three or four bedroom family home. The pool measures 15 m² and is a rare treat in Vrbanj, where temperatures can reach 30C on just an average summer day. There is a separate plot of land for private parking and enough room for a small olive grove. Local amenities include a great place to get pizza and a convenience store just 2–3 mins walk away. Vrbanj is 5–6 km from both the towns of Jelsa and Stari Grad and 6 km from the main port of Stari Grad where there are regular ferries to Split on the mainland. Hvar Town is 22 km.

      FAQs

      • Can I get a mortgage abroad?

        It depends on the country. For example, German banks willingly offer mortgages to foreigners at 1.5-2 % per annum with LTV up to 70%. Spain offers less favourable terms: the minimum rate for foreigners is 2.5% per annum. The situation is different in Greece: although the law does not prohibit banks from issuing loans, in practice, Greek banks don’t issue loans to local nor foreign property buyers. You can learn about the mortgage terms in your preferred country by contacting Tranio’s local agents.

      • How does the purchase procedure work?

        The purchase procedure depends on the country where you buy property. Generally, after choosing a property you need to sign a preliminary agreement with the seller and carry out a due diligence of the property by checking the relevant documents and the property's technical condition. After that, all parties sign the sales agreement and the notary registers the transaction. As a rule, the purchase registration costs amount to approximately 10% of the property price.

      • Can a residence permit be obtained by buying property?

        In some countries it is possible. Residence-for-property purchase programmes are known as Golden Visas programmes. Greece, Spain, Latvia, and Portugal offer the most popular Golden Visas in Europe. The Greek residence permit is the cheapest and can be obtained by buying a property worth at least €250,000, while organising all of the documents costs about €19,000. Certain countries offer citizenship to property buyers — for example, an investor can get their hands on a Cypriot passport by buying a property worth at least €2M.

      • Can I obtain income from a seaside apartment?

        Yes. You can use the purchased property yourself for holidays and lease it to tourists for the rest of the time. To avoid the hassle of finding tenants and cleaning the property, it’s a wise idea to hire a management company to do all the work – these services usually cost about 20% of the rent. Take into account the length of the tourist season in the location you choose: in certain regions it will be easy to rent apartments out all year round, while in others it might only be possible to do so during the high season.

      • How does Tranio make money if your service is free for the clients?

        We share the commission, which the buyer or the seller (depending on the country) pays to our partners — foreign real estate agencies. The price of this service is the same as if you contacted the agency directly — this is an important condition and applies to all of our partnership agreements.

      • Who guarantees the transaction security?

        The transaction security is guaranteed by the notary who draws up the sales agreement and checks the information on the previous and current owners of the property, any outstanding restrictions, mortgage, and third-party encumbrances. Tranio is not responsible for the parties involved in the transaction.
