When we acquired this “renovated” house 7.5 years ago, we soon discovered that the existing renovation entailed nothing but some cosmetic changes, hiding a lot of serious defects and shortcomings.
Since we loved the neighbourhood and planned to stay (we’re literally living in a quiet, eco-protected village of less than 100 inhabitants, with some Dutch, English, French, Polish and Russian neighbours), we decided to invest in a real, complete renovation, which resulted in:
– Demolishing an existing +90 m² outbuilding
– An entirely new roof (Austrian roof tiles)
– Higher walls/ceilings throughout
– A new (integrated) duplex
– New floors throughout (Italian tiles and parquet)
– New natural wood ceilings throughout
– New double-glazed windows and doors throughout
– Newly installed Italian tiled bathroom with jet bath, separate shower, etc
– Daikin A/C (in 4 out of 7 rooms – cooling/heating)
– New Belgian lighting fixtures
– Perfectly functioning WIFI (both wireless and wired internet broadband throughout – two wireless access points)
– Regular TV and 4 satellite dishes ensuring nearly 1000 channels, including English, German, Arabic, Russian and Ukrainian channels)
– Safeguards: two extra water pumps installed with new tubing, and generator onsite.
Three and a half years ago, we purchased the neighbouring house with large garden, demolished all buildings, extended the natural stone fence, landscaped the garden (part of which turned into a veggie/herb garden), built a large parking and a storage room, and got rid of the wall between the properties, thus creating – in July 2014 – one large compound.
Of importance: It’s officially authorized to build extra living space, and there’s ample room for a swimming pool. If wanted, the actual compound may be divided back into two separate plots. On the second plot, an entirely new house may be built.
Plenimir is only 6 kms away from the town of General-Toshevo, the seat of the municipality of Dobrich Province, and includes 42 villages. There you can find anything you need, i.e. shops, restaurants, bars, schools, banks, hospital, post-office, courier services, law and notary offices, pharmacies, local market, dentists, doctors, car repair, gas stations etc.
There is a bus connection to both General-Toshevo and Dobrich (regional capital, only 17 kms away), if you wouldn’t have a car.
The Romanian border is only 16 kms away, and its large coastal port city of Constanta, actually the oldest still-populated city in Romania, a mere 80 kms.
Balchik, a beautiful Black Sea seaside resort is less than 30 mins drive, and Bulgaria’s three major coastal 5* golf resorts are even closer: Thracian Cliffs, with a dramatic Gary Player Design signature course, spa, excellent restaurants and a very lovely private beach with Morrocan-style restaurant/bar (www.thraciancliffs.com), BlackSeaRama Golf & Villas (www.blacksearama.com) and Lighthouse Golf & Spa Hotel (www.lighthousegolfresort.com). All offer splendid golf facilities, obviously, but also very nice, private beaches and excellent restaurants/bars.
Golden Sands, Bulgaria’s famous “Златни пясъци” (Zlatni pyasatsi), a major seaside resort town, is about 45 minutes from here. It’s a popular tourist destination, drawing many visitors from Romania, Ukraine, Poland, Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Russia, Scandinavia, France, Central and Eastern Europe, the Persian Gulf, Israel, and other countries, who are attracted by the favourable climate, scenic landscape, and yes, very reasonable prices (Bulgaria is indeed one of the cheapest countries in Europe).
Last but not least, the international airport of Varna is only 63 kms away from our doorstep.
