A unique chance to buy a historical and cultural monument of Croatia - MUNZ villa in Icici, directly opposite yacht ACI-marina and beach! A perfect villa for a yacht owner!
Villa MUNZ refers to a period of turbulent Austro-Hungarian buildings of Opatija, Lovran, Icici and its surroundings. It got its name from the name of the wealthy industrialist Jacob Ludmig Münz, who was its first owner of the villa. Munz was known for investing in the first electric trauma depots in Rijeka and Pula.
The construction of the villa in the style of the SECESSION was completed in 1911. It has become a real jewel of Opatija riviera. The famous tower of villa MUNZ is still on all the postcards of Icici. After the Second World War, the villa was nationalized and since 1952 it has been used as a children's sanatorium for children from Macedonia. During the civil war of 1991-1996, the villa accommodated refugees from the southern regions of Croatia. After the war the villa was not used and it's condition deteriorated. Permission for the reconstruction of the villa was received back in 2002, but the protracted dispute between the Municipality and the owner of the villa prevented the restoration of this property and cultural and historical significance. The new owner of the villa is obliged to restore the building in its pristine beauty while preserving all the decorative elements. The estimated value of the property exceeds 12 million euros, but at the moment it is a hot selling item. The area of the building is about 400 m2, but it is noteworthy that the villa is standing on a park area of more than 5000 m2, which is a great rarity for the Opatija riviera.
