Five Bedroom House
200 year old house with 30cm thick stone walls has been skilfully converted into a five bedroom, five bathroom family home using locally sourced, high-quality materials.
Having been completely renovated using a high-quality blend of traditional and modern materials, this four-storey house now offers stylish, contemporary family living, situated less than one minute from the sea, in a traditional seaside Dalmatian village.
It features a stunning, huge open-plan kitchen and living room (over 90m2) with direct access to the courtyard garden, comprising a contemporary Aran kitchen with double oven, double fridge freezers, an integrated dishwasher, two sinks, 5-ring gas hob, fitted wine racks and microwave. It has plentiful storage along with a separate pantry and downstairs W.C.
The ground floor features designer ceramic tiles with underfloor heating, bespoke wooden windows and doors, and a sophisticated heating and cooling system.
The first floor is open plan, with a bathroom but it can easily re-configured as two en-suite bedrooms (all pipework is installed and one bathroom is already tiled).
The 2nd floor features two spacious double bedrooms with a fully-fitted tiled bathroom with bath and shower over.
The 3rd floor is entirely given over to a stunning master-bedroom suite, featuring a bedroom area with 180° sea views, a large dressing room with extensive fitted shelving and rails and a luxury bathroom with bath and separate shower.
Additionally, there is a second house which is adjoining the main house via the kitchen. It is an unrenovated three storey old stone house, and it is also available for sale by separate negotiation.
About Kastel Novi
The house is in an old fishing village, called Kastel Novi. Kastel Novi is the sixth of the seven adjoining villages which are dotted along the 17km bay between Split and Trogir and are collectively known as Kastela.
The focal point of Kastel Novi, from inception until today is the castle which gave the area its name. In 1512, a nobleman from neighbouring Trogir built the Cippico Castle as his summer residence. The castle still stands on the seafront today, and is currently being restored with a plan to create a hotel and restaurant.
Next to the castle, is the old harbour, which is filled with small boats, although the fishing industry ended long ago.
Unlike, many other Croatian villages, Kastela does not go into hibernation when the tourists leave in winter. Most of the residents live there, although in the summer their numbers swell with tourists, who have been steadily growing in number over the last ten years or so.
The riva (waterfront boulevard) runs from Kastel Luksic, through Kastel Stari, then Kastel Novi and ends in Kastel Stafilic. Pavement cafes, restaurants and shops are dotted along this popular meeting place. Typically, local Kastelians come down to the riva to stroll along the waterfront, meet friends and drink coffee almost every evening of the year.
The area is lucky to have the ever popular Konoba Intrada which is open all day and all year round, attracting diners from Split and beyond. This is arguably the best restaurant in Kastela and it is a great place to sample traditional Dalmatian cuisine.
There are a number of festivals, parades and galas throughout the year. The local tourist office (located on Kastel Novi riva) has a poster on the wall outside detailing the coming month’s festivities.
For those who wish to venture further, Split and Trogir are connected by the number 38 bus that runs along the Kastela road. From there, you can connect to any of the towns and villages up and down the Dalmatian coast, or indeed to the capital Zagreb and beyond.
