Our family home is at Zichron Yaakov, a small and tranquil town, offering breathtaking views to Israel’s Mediterranean Coast. The town is considered a tourist attraction – its quaint main shopping street is lined with cafés, which sit alongside historic buildings; the town is also famous for the Carmel Winery, one of Israel’s top vineyards.
Within 5 minutes' walk from our home, you can find Ramat HaNadiv, the Baron Edmond de Rothschild's gardens. This large estate occupies a swathe of hillside on Mount Carmel, and the formal gardens at the center are breathtaking.
The house has 5 bedrooms (one downstairs and 4 are upstairs), spacious living room, large kitchen, big pantry and utility room and a large surrounding yard.
The master bedroom is upstairs and includes king-sized bed, cable TV, and an attached bathtub and toilet room. A second bedroom is toddlers/children safe. The third and fourth bedrooms have king-size beds. The second floor also has the following: a small living room with sofa and TV; bathroom that includes a bathtub; and another separate toilet room.

We are three minutes walk to the Ramat Hanadiv, a beautiful nature park and garden covering 4.5 km at the southern end of Mount Carmel. There is a little market up the street, tennis courts and soccer yard. We are 25 minutes' walk from the main street (“midrahov”). Restored original houses designed in the style of a French village serve as the backdrop for cafés restaurants, galleries and craft stores. You can get to the beach, within 10 minutes driving. The famous beach Hof-Dor offers surfing, sap, scuba diving and hiking in coastal line with unique bays and inlets.
You are right next to the coast road, which takes you to Tel-Aviv or Haifa, and 5 minutes drive from a shopping mall.
