Veliko Tarnovo

The Konstantsalieva House

  Arbanassi     more than a year ago
The Konstantsalieva house, on one of the main roads through the village, originally built in the 17th century,  has been beautifully restored in National Revival style. It reflects not only the wealth of the owners but also the attention to detail and the quality craftsmanship of that time. In a style typical for Arbanassi, the two storey house is set in a large yard surrounded by a high stone wall. The lower floor is constructed of stone, the upper floor and living quarters are timber construction. Stairs are internal as an extra security precaution. The winter rooms were heated by large built in stoves (known as dzhamal) which were fed and cleaned from a separate service access. There is even an internal toilet (hole in the floor), a luxury many homes in the neighbouring villages do not have to this day. On the ground floor where the store rooms and living quarters for the servants would have been, there is a large souvenir shop.
