Mariazell is a famous village in the Austrian region of Steiermarkt. (Styria)
The village has it’s own large ski area the Mariazeller Alps. It is also an all year destination because of the Mountain lake for open air concerts and the Famous Basilica.
It is a site of pilgrimage for Catholics from Austria and neighboring countries. The object of veneration is an image of the Virgin Mary reputed to work miracles, carved in lime-tree wood. This was brought to the place in 1157, and is now enshrined in a chapel adorned with objects of silver and other costly materials.
The large church of which the chapel forms part was erected in 1644 as an expansion of a smaller church built by Louis I, King of Hungary, after a victory over the Ottoman Empire in 1363.
The cable car is situated at the edge of Mariazell and gives access to the varied ski area. This is approx 8 minutes drive, from the property.
The Cable car is open so in Summer, there are concerts at the Mountain lake ‘Bergsee’ Fantasic to watch an open air concert on a mountain top!
The river Salsa is nearby and ideal venue for rafting and kayaking, the new sports in high demand by weekend visitors.

Price: was €115,000 – now reduced to 105,000 for quick sale – the perfect renovation bargain for the DIY expert…and a price that does not break the bank! We have local builder/handymen available for those who prefer to just oversee renovations.
Both Linz and Vienna airports are approx 2 hours drive.
Plans for a renovation/conversion are available on request. The planned renovation is to reconfigure the property into 2 x 1 bedroom apartments, 5 ensuite bedrooms plus other usable space on the ground floor.
This is only one idea for the property but obviously the house could be renovated to whatever suits the buyer…either Rental apartments or guesthouse.
