Romantic secluded country house Our Istria
by Ariela Gojanovic
(Roc, Istri, Croatia)
The house is secluded, not far from the village Rim where it actually belongs. It was built in 1886 but has been recently redecorated with special love and care and is surrounded by green lawns, an orchard and a forest.
Primarily it was meant to be a family house for a family with 2-3 children.During the renovating and decorating there was one guiding principle above
all: the family has to be comfortable and relaxed in the house, both the grown-ups and children have to find something that will calm them down,
relax and inspire. That is exactly why only exclusively natural and ecology
friendly materials were used for the reconstruction of the house. There are
wood floors throughout the house except in the kitchen and in the bathroom.The walls are mortared in the old fashioned way so the irregularity and warm colours of the walls remind us of our ancestors calm life. Thick stone walls
and aircondition units will assure the freshness in the whole house even in
the hottest summer days. There is a large terrace in front of the house followed by lawns and meadows.
