Property description: Balkan Heights is situated in the St Ivan district of Bansko. This area is to the south of Bansko, in the foothills of the Pirin Mountains, five minutes by minibus shuttle to the Gondola Station. St Ivan is emerging as the most prestigious district of the town. The views are terrific across 360-degrees, and the few developments taking place there are of a higher quality than those in the town below. Balkan Heights abuts the Pirin National Park, and its views cannot be affected by any future development.

Balkan Heights has been designed with a great deal of care.

Two main themes underlie the design, that will ensure these apartments make an excellent investment.

Value and investment potential: the apartments are designed to contain the maximum number of bedrooms and beds in the smallest area. 1-bedroom apartments are on average 50 square meters (540 square feet), 2-bedroom apartments are 65 sq m (700 square feet). Costing is by the square meter, so the prices of Studios and 1-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments are lower than in any development in equivalent superb position or with so many facilities. The apartments at Balkan Heights are much larger than French ski apartments.

Rental : Balkan Heights is composed of 80 luxurious apartments, with rich facilities, and will function like a hotel. So it has hotel reception, lobby bar, room-service, spa centre with swimming-pool, business conference centre, shops, restaurant with professional kitchen, laundry service, and staff to run the facilities (and facilities for the staff). This meets with the requirements of the two main markets for rental - the Tour Operators and independent holidaymakers from Sofia, Greece and other neighbouring countries. (For this reason we have excluded fireplaces in the apartments, as Tour Operators hate fireplaces. There are open fires in the restaurant and lobby-bar.) There is a business conference centre to attract the lucrative business excursions market.

Furthermore, in the smaller details of the development we have maximised the appeal of the apartments. Two examples: a) Bansko in the summer is hot and a dip in an open-air pool is ideal so the swimming-pool will be open to the elements in the summer, b) It is possible to visit the Spa Centre from any apartment in the complex without going outside, so that you can walk there in your bathrobe.

Buying at Balkan Heights

We plan to ensure that buyers do not suffer the stress and frustration that can occur when buying from Bulgarian developers. So:

- The Preliminary Contract is simpler and clearer and fairer that that presented by any other developer in the Bulgarian property market

- Copies of all documentation and all permissions for the project will be presented immediately to buyers' lawyers, on demand.

- A summary legal report, summarising the documentation for the project, is available to all buyers.

- Payments will be made to the Bulgarian bank account of the developer - there is no dealing with off-shore bank accounts.

- Prices include VAT, and the developer (KV Trading) pays this VAT.

- Full prices will be stated on the Notarial Acts.
