Plot for Development in Bulgaria
Location: North West England - Crook
Sell Price: £8,000
I purchased this plot of land back in 2007 and the original plan was to develop a small housing complex on it, as the plot is in pristine nature, in the mountains yet only 3km from Stara Zagora mineral spa area, where there are many luxury hotels, mineral spa pools and a lovely lake and restaurants and only a 10 minute drive on a good road from Stara Zagora city centre. I applied for change of use to allow building and this was granted except for the final certificate as unfortunately the lawyer I paid to deal with this never kept on top of things and never signed for and collected the final certificate and so the application lapsed.
Then the 'crash' happened and the other people I was going to do the development with pulled out. Since then the plot has been left and farmed by a co-operative.
Now the area has become a hot spot for luxury houses and well off Bulgarians to build there homes, just outside the city in the pristine and quiet nature, yet an easy 10 minute drive to the city centre or half an hour to the motorway and easy access to Plovdiv (around hour and a bit) or Burgas (2 hours) or Sofia (2 and half hours).
There are many new houses and developments in the area.
The plot would need the boundaries properly marking by the technical company here and change of use could be applied for and would probably cost around 1500 Euros. Electric pylons are not too far from the plot and water is to the houses in the village. The plot is maybe a 2 or 3 minute drive down a decent track from the edge of the village. There are some new build houses behind it, maybe around 300 metres away.
Alternatively it would be an amazing space for an off-grid house (permission would still be needed for any permanent structure) or a non permanent structure like a camper or caravan or yurt could be placed there without the need for any change of use and electricity could be from solar and water could be from a bore hole or rain water collection or brought in.
Video of the plot is available.
Transfer fees would be around 200 to 300 Euros if based on tax evaluation price of the plot.
