Full description:

An opportunity to buy a pair of houses in St Lorenzen im Gitschtal. Both houses require renovation and modernisation. One is an old farmhouse and the other is a small cottage which could be used to generate rental income. Close to the ski areas of Nassfeld and Weißbriach and the lakes Presseggersee and Weissensee.

Number 20 is quite a substantial old farmhouse. The barn area has been converted into a garage in which the ceiling has been removed exposing the beams. This area could be adapted to increase the living area.

The layout is: entrance hall, large kitchen/diner and living room, bathroom and w.c., an old bathroom, an old smoke kitchen formerly used for smoking meat with access to the cellar. Stairs to first floor with landing, a large room and two bedrooms, stairs to attic.

The garage area is about 55m² and the first floor of the barn area could be converted to give an extra 55m² of living space.

Number 53 is a small cottage which can be accessed either though the garden of Number 20 or by its own entrance from a side road. Looking at the photographs, it is the white house with pink surrounds around the windows. The barn to the right of the picture is not included. Number 53 has about 200m² of land.

The cottage has 4/5 rooms on the ground floor plus a bathroom. Stairs to the first floor with landing, kitchen, living room, bedroom and w.c. The total living area is about 93m².

The total ground area with both houses is about 1109m². The energy performance is to be assessed.

Please note that measurements quoted are approximate and for guidance only.

St Lorenzen im Gitschtal is a small village and farming community about a 5 minute drive out of Hermagor in the direction of Weißbriach. It is a lovely rural area surrounded by mountains and close to the Weissensee National Park. The Weißsensee can be reached by footpaths over the mountains from St Lorenzen (if you are fit!).

Hermagor

Hermagor, our home town, is the county town and administrative centre for the central Gailtal and the 30 villages surrounding it. It is a small town but has plenty of supermarkets, shops and restaurants. The famous Semmelrock Konditerei, reputedly one of the best in Austria and where everyone meets for coffee and cakes or a light lunch, lies in the central square, the Gasserplatz. Most Saturday mornings there is a Farmers' Market offering local produce including Gailtaler Speck (bacon), cheeses and honey, the produce for which the area is deservedly famous.

The Presseggersee lies to the east of the town and the fabulous Nassfeld Ski Arena is only a few minutes away by car. The area offers endless opportunities for both summer and winter activities with many kilometers of dedicated trails for walking, cycling, horse riding and golf at the Gailtal Golf Club. Visit the golf club website: www.gailtalgolf.eu for full information about the facilities on offer.

The area has good road and rail links. The railway runs the full length of the Gailtal valley and offers regular services to Villach from where there are trains to the rest of Europe.

Klagenfurt airport is about a 45 minute drive away with flights to Vienna, Berlin, Hamburg and Köln and it is only about a 1 hour and 15 minute drive to Ljubljana airport in Slovenia with flights from Luton (Wizz) and Stansted (easyJet). Salzburg Airport is about a 2 hour drive.

Weissensee

The Weissensee is one of the exquisitely beautiful Carinthian lakes. At 1000m above sea level, this is Carinthia's highest lake. With a temperature of around 24°C, the clear and clean water is refreshing even on the hottest of days, has fantastic visibility and plenty of fish.

As two thirds of the lakeshores are protected by conservation laws, the area offers great scenic beauty. Ideal for those in search of a peaceful break, as well as for families with young children. Exceptional walking and cycling trails.

In summer the lake offers tremendous water sport facilities and in winter, when the lake freezes, the surface is groomed to prepare a magnificent skating area. Horse-drawn sleigh rides are also offered. Crosscountry skiing is available and downhill skiing is catered for in the family ski area. The Nassfeld Ski Arena is only a short drive away.

Sports Facilities: windsurfing, crazy banana, tubing, water-skiing, parasailing, fishing, skating, skiing, cycling, hiking.

Facilities: bathing beaches, pleasure cruises, boat rental, campsites, hotels, almhuts offering local cheeses and Speck.

Sports: swimming, wind surfing, sailing, fishing, Nordic walking around the lake.
Facilities: bathing beach with large play area, boat rental, wind surfing school, sports and leisure center, fun park, camping sites, hotels

Nassfeld Ski Arena

The Nassfeld Ski Arena is the ski-resort in the district of Hermagor. It is located at the Nassfeld Pass and offers 110 km of pistes, extensive off-piste opportunities and 30 ski lifts. The Ski Arena caters for all levels of ability from a dedicated and extensive teaching area to black runs for the expert skier.

The Millenium-Express cable car lift, the longest cable car system in the Alps, takes you to the top (1.919 metres) in less than 15 minutes. The ski resort ranges in elevation from 1300 metres to 2000 metres above sea level. There is also a fantastic 'Snowboard Park' with the ultimate half pipe. The Nassfeld has over 220 snow machines for creating artificial snow and ensuring good skiing conditions.

During 2014, work commenced building more lifts to link the Austrian side of the Nassfeld to the Italian side from Pontebba. The work will include the expansion of the skiing area.
