120-year-old chalet that belonged to the former Austro-Hungarian Trade Minister Zichy Ferenc, listed for sale
Romania Sotheby’s International Realty announces the listing for sale of Count Zichy Ferenc’s chalet in Abrămuț, Bihor County, at the price of 495,000 euros.
The property, built in 1899 at the initiative of Count Zichy Ferenc, former Minister of Trade in the Austro-Hungarian Empire, was given to his son Tivadar.
The mansion has a built area of 358 sqm, with 6 rooms, 3 bathrooms and a basement cellar.
The generous porch is the building’s ennobling element, its wooden construction being both rustic and elegant. Inside, the solid wood furnishings reflect the atmosphere of the late 19th century, while artistic elements such as the piano, add a touch of elegance. The property enjoys all the necessary comforts, benefiting from electricity, central heating, water, and solar panels for hot water.
The property also benefits from a 7.8 ha plot of land (of which 1.28 ha are intraurban land and 4.8 ha are arable land). On the land, you will find planted 30 varieties of roses, a fruit orchard, as well as strawberry, blueberry, blackberry and raspberry crops.
“There are many reasons why this property may represent an investment opportunity. In addition to its historical footprint, the property, which can be used for residential or tourism purposes, can also be used for its agricultural and hunting potential,” said Constantin Prisecaru, Managing Partner, Romania Sotheby’s International Realty.
Today the property is also known as Hajas Manor, after the name of the current owners, but in the title deed it is called Castle. It was purchased in 2010 and restored according to the original plan, retaining the original woodwork. More details can be found here.
