This is a traditional-style property in the central Stara Planina mountains, just 8 km from the small ski resort of Uzana and 15 km from the regional centre Gabrovo. The property is located in a tiny mountain village of Zeleno darvo (meaning "green tree"), which is the last village before Uzana. The distance to the nearest town of Gabrovo is 15 km to the north and 60 km from Veliko Turnovo. The area is very picturesque and the views are stunning. The property consists of a two-storey house, a barn with a shed, paved patio area and 500 sq m plot of land. The house itself has been completely renovated but has not been maintained for the last few years. As a result the condition has deteriorated a lot. Despite this the house has a great potential as there are 5 bedrooms, fitted kitchen/dining area, lounge with a fireplace and 2 bathrooms. The property comes furnished.

There are a lot of places to see and things to do in the area. Gabrovo is a nice town with about 60,000 citizens offering all the amenities needed. In the town there are museums, a small zoo and a planetarium. Just outside is the picturesque open-air museum Etara, Sokolski monastery, the traditional and preserved village of Bojentsi. Gabrovo is also one of the points from where one can start a walking tour in the central Stara Planina mountains and some of the most picturesque walking routes start just few kilometres from the village of Zeleno darvo where the property is located.

The mountain resort of Uzana is located 8 km from the house. It is very picturesque place and attracts people in all seasons - in the winter for skiing and lovers of mountain walks and relaxation close to the nature all year round.


Stara Planina Properties was established in 1998 and was the first British-owned and managed company of its kind in Bulgaria offering one-stop-shop services to foreign property buyers.

About Stara Planina Properties, Veliko Turnovo

About the agent

The two co-founders both worked as urban planners and researchers in London before being engaged by the United Nations to direct a European Union supported project renovating historical and tourist sites around Bulgaria. During this period they developed a deep attachment to the country, its people and the relaxed way of life.

In 2001 they assisted Channel 4’s ‘A Place in the Sun’ with their first programme on Bulgaria. More recently Stara Planina Properties have assisted ITV’s ‘I Want That House’ and Real Estate TV’s ‘Bulgaria the Next Big Thing’. All of this exposure greatly increased the interest in the Bulgarian property market.

Through the many years of operations we have developed an expertise and reputation in the market that is unrivalled. All of these efforts have culminated in us being invited to write the definitive book on the Bulgarian property market, in association with the Sunday Times, entitled Buying a Property - Bulgaria (1st Jan 2008 Cadogan Guides).
