The Vrban homestead

Gea consulting d.o.o. / 2018

The homestead is located in the Poljanska Valley, where it forms a rarely preserved village atmosphere with the nearby farms. Over the centuries, it has been enlarged by several add-ons. Its final form originates from the early 19th century. The owner’s father began renovating the farm buildings in 2008, and in 2013 the current owner decided on a complete renovation. The wooden ceilings, the lobby with a typical open-fire kitchen under the vaulted ceiling and the living room are preserved. The house is adorned with a wooden porch. This homestead is a prime example of quality renovation.
