Fancy buying a place in the sun in Dubrovnik? Looking for an apartment with a difference? How about a chapel? This must be one of the strangest real estate deals in Dubrovnik for some time, an ancient stone chapel that has been converted into an apartment. The chapel, named Our Lady of Sorrows, is currently up for sale, and the price for this 25 metres squared unique apartment is 120,000 Euros. Meaning that the unusual apartment will cost you 4,800 Euros a metre squared. An online advert states that the Dubrovnik real estate is “a single-storey stone house with a 15 square metre garden.”
The chapel was originally constructed in 1710 and is located in the suburb of Lapad. According to a report by Dubrovacki Vjesnik the chapel was sold by the original family who owned it to a private individual who then converted it into an apartment.
The online ad for the chapel Our Lady of Sorrows chapel adds that it is a “Unique property, in the centre of Lapad, of historic significance, completely renovated following the guidelines and permission of the conservator.”
Looking for a rather unusual Dubrovnik address
The owner states that “A lot of effort and money has been invested and unfortunately due to illness I have to sell it.” And clearly the owner is willing to be constructive with the payment terms as the ad states that the Lapad chapel apartment can be exchanged for “A smaller studio or apartment (Zagreb or Dubrovnik) or a new car can be taken into account. All options are available only to serious and real buyers who know how to appreciate such a valuable unique property.”
It certainly is a unique real estate offer, and one that could quite easily find its way onto AirBnb or booking.com in the near future, if a buyer is found.
