Happy Bargain Friday! Today I wanted to explore a new area of the world, and after seeing some amazing, colorful old Russian houses here on Instagram, I decided to take a peek into the Russian real estate market. It’s been a fascinating look around!
Today’s property is a 22-acre estate near Ulan-Ude, Siberia, Russia – close to Mongolia! The property has three houses on it and is developed with a greenhouse and garden, close to a forest and a stream. It is meant to be a multi-generational family compound, living close to the land with fresh produce and livestock.
Ulan-Ude is a super interesting place! It is the capital of Buddhism in Russia and the prevailing culture is similar to Mongolian culture. It was also a refuge for Russian Old Believers, similar perhaps to American Amish communities, who settled here to follow their Orthodox beliefs.
I would love to take a summer to ride on the Trans-Siberian Railway and explore this area of the world. Can you imagine what life here might be like?
