Nace’s House, which stands in an idyllic setting by the Poljanska Sora, one of the source branches of the river Sora, takes its name from former owner Nace (Ignacij) Homan, who purchased the house in 1818. Since then, it has been passed down from generationto generation of the same family. A renovation in 1755 gave it its baroque appearance, which has not changedsigni cantly to the present day. The few late Gothic carved stone details are a clue to the house’s origin in the sixteenth century. The ground plan is typical for an Alpine house. An unusual feature of the house is that it contains two almost identical oors, each witha wooden hiša (the main living space) and bedroomand a stone open-hearth kitchen, entrance hall andstoreroom. This is the result of the house having been used as an inn up until the First World War. The contents of the house have been preserved in their entirety, bearing witness to the lives of its inhabitantsover the centuries, right up to the present day. Notonly that, but the house is preserved in a functioning state, although no one has lived here since 1974. The property also includes a number of outbuildings: a granary, a hay loft and a cart shed. An orchard andvegetable garden complete the property, which o erstoday’s visitors the chance to learn about a bygone way of life.
