This treasure in Western Styria (Steiermark) not only enchants visitors with the character it has developed over the more than 200 years of its existence, but also through its wonderful location and sunny orientation. Both playful and functional, it can work equally well as the ideal holiday home or as a warm and welcoming family home.
Historic rural property with incredible view, surrounded by vineyards
The beautiful country house, with approx. 123 m² of usable floor area, nestles into a sunny slope of approx. 4,800 m², surrounded by idyllic vineyards, carefully tended flowerbeds, shrubs and old trees. There is a generous sitting room with a tiled masonry stove and a sofabed, a newly fitted kitchen equipped with Miele appliances, and a dining area for four, but the comfortable atmosphere of these rooms permeates the entire house. The historic oriel is another beautiful element of the house, providing enough space for 6-8 people to enjoy themselves. The generously-proportioned sunny patio with beautiful views into the far distance is without doubt the best place to spend time when the weather is good.
These amenities, as well as the many others which are present, are wonderfully supported by the practical functionality of the house. This includes the guest toilet, which has space for a washing machine, the two bedrooms, both of which have their own balconies and access to their own bathrooms, and the cellar, which is accessible at ground level. This houses the new, highly efficient Buderus oil-fired condensing boiler, the oil tank and – last but not least – the “treasure chamber”; the vaulted stone wine cellar. The modern facilities naturally include wireless internet, a Telekom landline and DVB-S HD satellite reception for television. The heating and hot water can be controlled remotely with smart technology.
There is enough space to park at least 4 vehicles. On top of all the existing advantages of the property as it presently stands, there is also the possibility of using large areas of the grounds for further construction. And here you will find another delicious ingredient: the cultivation of your own wine is permitted on this plot.
The village of Steinreib is on the Schilcher Wine Route, where the “Tuscany of Styria” begins and can be reached from Graz by car in approx. 30 minutes. At an altitude of about 500 m, the local microclimate provides the conditions for the production of Schilcher, the world-famous rosé. In the immediate vicinity of this rural property are numerous wineries, winegrowers and inns, offering first-class gastronomy as well as well-kept guest rooms. Various walking routes and opportunities for day trips invite residents and visitors alike to take part in physical and culinary activities in the area. And with that, all that remains to be said is: “To your health!”
