Traditional stone town house in Stari Grad with great roof terrace.
This quaint town house in Stari Grad is located just off the waterfront and is rumoured to be the house of the sea captain Ivan Balcic, who in 1570 was involved in the decisive sea battle at Lepanto.
The house is arranged over two main floors with an additional half floor which is the kitchen and living area. There are three bedrooms in the house with a bathroom and separate WC. The house has a wonderful sun deck rooftop terrace with amazing views of the old town rooftops. There is also a further terrace that leads from the main house to the kitchen/living area.
In addition to the house, the owners would consider selling a small agricultural plot outside the town, about a 15-minute walk away. This is located in the most fertile area of the Stari Grad plain and is ideal for growing wine or olive trees.
The town of Stari Grad can be traced back to 2,000BC when it was initially called Pharos, after the Greek city of the same name. It has many little side streets where one can stumble upon the quaintest of family-owned restaurants offering a mouth-watering selection of local cuisine. Stari Grad also has a record-beating number of cafe bars, which is a prerequisite to the Mediterranean style of life. The local area also boasts some excellent beaches in the vicinity.
Stari Grad ferry port which lies on the outskirts of the town, is home to Jadrolinija, which offers a comprehensive service to the mainland with up to 6 ferry crossings in the summer months. Nearby the town of Jelsa has a daily catamaran service also run by Jadrolinija to Split via the town of Bol on Brac Island. While in the other direction, the famous town of Hvar is only a 20-minute drive.
