If you ask people what they are most looking for in a home a good percent of them will answer "space". It is something we all need - space gives you the opportunity to sleep, relax, play, and gather family and friends comfortably and easily. Nobody wants to live in cramped and tight spaces, right? A home that comes with ample space? Yes, please!

If you are also a firm believer that "bigger is better", then you should check out the Better House in the village of Baniska. It might be just what you are looking for:

On the ground floor of the house, you will find a long sun-filled entrance hall leading you to a very spacious kitchen and dining area through which you enter a shower room with a toilet. The entrance hall also leads to a corridor which opens up to a large utility room and another premise, which you can convert and use according to your needs. There is also a basement below the ground floor.

A charming internal staircase leads you to the first floor of the house, where you will find a corridor, 3 bedrooms with lots of natural light, a walk-in closet, a space designated for a shower room (project lovers unleash your imagination!), and a lovely balcony offering beautiful views of the garden and the surrounding village landscape. With some work and creativity, you can turn the Better House into the rural paradise of your dreams! You certainly have plenty of space to be creative!

The garden is also big (of course) and offers you plenty of space to enjoy gardening or indulge in other recreational outdoor activities.

There is a parking space on the street.

There is water and electricity connected to the property.

The roof is in good condition, as shown in the photos.
