Lush life around Sofia’s green belts.
Any sunny day, the parks are full of kids and families enjoying the newly remodeled (and expanded) playgrounds and walkways, as well as numerous other kid's activities. All of this has created quite an attractive lifestyle for residents in these areas and has solidified some of Sofia’s most sought after neighborhoods for real estate investment.
THE SECRET LUXURY NEIGHBORHOODS
Near the Klusharski park and the American Embassy, local developers began buying up old single-family homes on around 400m2 sized plots. On these properties, they built luxury townhouses and architecturally unique homes creating hidden gems in the normally average priced Lozenets market.
Another area that offers beautiful single-family homes (miraculously in the ideal center) is the Yavorov neighborhood. This area is between the Borisova Gradina and the Military Park, and only a stone's throw away from Oborishte. A long time ago, plots of land around 300-500m2 were given to Sofia University professors to build vacation homes on what was a villa zone outside of Sofia. Since then Yavorov is now well within the city limits, but the charming country-style architecture remains.
For those seeking the park lifestyle for less, Krastovada (the area south of the Paradise Mall), Dianbad, Gotse Delchev and Strelbishte are a great option. Prices are typically lower than the above neighborhoods and the infrastructure of these areas is improving with the help of EU funding. These areas have a happy mix of buildings from the 1960s and new builds from 2000 onwards, new residential complexes and local markets and commercial districts.
