Always wanted to run away to the circus? Try living in style in a forested Polish manor and operating its guesthouse instead! This astonishing estate is located in the outskirts of the picturesque farming village Swieta Katarzyna (Saint Katharine), one of the most beautiful areas of Poland. Tourists come to the region to hike the famous mystical mountain of Lysica (pronounced "WissEEtsa"), as well as extensive hiking trails, a nearby castle, lake, and ancient churches. The national writer Stefan Zeromski described this region in his book Fir Forest (Puszcza Jodlowa). Although seemingly forgotten by time, the property is conveniently located just 13 miles (20 km) from Kielce, which is itself about equidistant from the spectacular Polish cities of Krakow, Warsaw, and Lublin. The estate's huge grounds are surrounded on three sides by a gorgeous national forest park (Swietokrzyski Park Narodowy). Happily, this legally prevents the development of the surrounding areas. The estate already comes with a functional and well-regarded guesthouse for tourists, a barn, and a small collection of animals. (We can sell the animals if you do not want to deal with them.) But the income-generating potential is larger. Perhaps sleigh rides in the winters, horseback riding in the summers? Spinning alpaca wool? Staging weddings? You will live in style while doing all this. The estate is perfect as a retreat as well. The manor has three floors, 3200 sq feet in total (320 meters). There are 3 heating systems. We will be happy to sell it with high quality, beautiful furnishings and appliances. Natural light is abundant from the many windows, and it has been thoroughly refurbished and remodeled within the last 10 years. It is not an ancient, dark, crumbling mansion but a modern, clean, bright manor. The ground floor has a living room with a fireplace, a formal dining room, a very large bathroom, a kitchen, and an entrance to the garden, which includes an outdoor fire pit, gazebo, and a beautiful, huge pond with frogs and storks. The middle floor has a living room, a large balcony with forest view, two bedrooms, an office with plentiful natural light, and a truly deluxe bathing room with shower, large jacuzzi, and private balcony. It has an additional staircase coming from the ground outside. The top floor has two bedrooms, one with a balcony; a library which can be used as a bedroom or sitting-room and contains a balcony; a large walk-in closet; a bathroom with skylight; and a nice mini-kitchen with sink, small refrigerator, and stove, with very nice natural light and attractive wood interior. The very large guest-house boasts 3220 square feet (!) or 300 square meters. There are SIX rooms to rent, and each one has a bathroom. There is even also an additional apartment with two rooms, a bathroom and a kitchenette, two garages, and a sauna. The barn is 2150 square feet (200 sq. meters) and has animals (riding horses, goats, ponies, and alpacas). It could be converted into a wedding house; other farmers have done this (but not in this village: you'd be the first). The property boasts 18.5 ACRES (7.5 Ha) of land, which includes over 1.2 acres (0.5 ha) of forest. In addition to, or instead of, income generated through the guesthouse, it could be perfect for a writer's retreat, a religious retreat, an alternative community, functional farming, or just living in style. You could write an "A Year in Provence" or "My House in Umbria"-type of book about this lovely and charming village ... The charming town itself has a cloistered nunnery/abbey (I believe it is from the 14th century) with an active church built upon what was supposedly a pagan temple at the base of Lysica Mountain, a very nice small delicatessen/grocery store, a large restaurant/banquet hall lined with antique radios, another restaurant for large parties, and several tourist shops on the main road selling souvenirs, post cards, ice cream and such. The nearby town Bodzentyn (2,271 inhabitants) contains several small, privately-owned bars, ice cream shops, small restaurants, parks, and a library. Between Swieta Katarzyna and Bodzentyn is a ruined 14th century castle: here is the wikipedia article for it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bodzentyn_Castle And nearby big cities: Lublin http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lublin Krakow http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kraków Warsaw: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warsaw And Kielce: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kielce Price: $1000 000,00 negotiable) Contact: maka17@poczta.onet.pl Telphone: (USA) 510-544-9575 Poland: 41-311-2237 lub 695-193-540
