This house is one of the only rare house in this place with large and opened areas, corresponding to the actual way of living.
Few stairs on the side of the house are heading to the bottom floor. On this floor a large garage facing the sea can be used to store all the sea equipment and/or a small fishing boat.
Aside this garage a small independent apartment is facing the sea with its nice terrace.
This appartment has 2 main rooms ( one living/kitchen and one bedroom) and a large bathroom.
The bedroom is equiped with 3 beds and 2 spare beds can be put in the other room, we choose to organise an independent sleeping studio for all the kids of the house. So, it is fully equiped and can eventually be rented separately.
There is no car parking or garage on the plot and this will have to be made, on the road side, it is quite affordable to built such a parking, and there is plenty of space on the plot on the road side.
Depending on the size of the parking required, no licence is needed to build.
An outside BBQ area is also available.
The house is equiped and organised to receive up to 12 persons for holidays with very large volumes adapted to European style of living.
The sea access is just in front of the house, within few others steps and path.
The sea access has been nicely landscaped, it has a mooring deck for diving with a swimming pool ladder and a smooth sea access for children.
The little port of Prigradica is very pretty, has a daily boat line to the city of Split starting every morning at 6:45 AM and a returning every day at 7:00 PM, operated by a speedboat catamaran, the yourney takes 2 hours.
There are 2 mains ways to access to the island of Korčula; via Dubrovnik with a two and half hours drive ( including a 15 min ferry from Orebić to Korčula ) or via Split with a two hours car ferry transfer directly from Split to the port of Vela Luka.
Prigradica is a charming and quiet little haven place with a nice stone beach for children and with 3 very good local restaurants, sea side coffee shops, and a little supermarket working mainly on summer period.
It has a particular situation, facing mainland, with fantastic landscaping view.
The sea water is very clear and transparent all year. There is a special gulf stream in this area of the island that provides a warmer sea water, even warmer than on the south coast or anywhere else on the island, by 3 or 4 degrees all year long.
In the passed 5 years, we were twice in November in the house, and we could swim, the water was still around 20 degrees.
In the summer time the weather is very sunny, mediteranean type, with very little rain.
Around 30-33 degrees in July and August, but it is always nice as the sea brings a little sea wind that cools up the air.
All summer the sea water is around 26 to 28 degrees.
It is really fantastic and very rare position, first row to the sea, very hard to find in Mediteranian and often hardly accessible in terms of price.
It is important to know that the urbanistic plan in Croatia has changed in 2010. and has voted for the next 15 years and the sea side is not anymore constructible within a distance of 70 meters from the sea ( except the pre-urbanized zones). So this position will become more and more exceptional and rare.
