Many olim dream of building their own home in Israel and ask if it is possible. Absolutely! One can buy land, zoned for residential building, and build away! There are many expert, bilingual architects who can help you take your dream home from conception to reality. And while it is true that the typical Israeli structure is made from brick, the wooden house is starting to make some serious inroads here. There are companies that specialize in wood construction, including some from Europe that will deliver a prefabricated house straight to you. Of course, one has to take into consideration the extra expense of constructing with wood and the upkeep, as we tend to have a dry climate.
Land for building is expensive in Israel because there is a limited supply. The majority of the land in Israel is owned by the government or Jewish National Fund. Other land is zoned agricultural, and actually quite reasonably priced. But land for building will cost you more. On our property pages, you will see some land options, both for growing crops and for building. Here is one example, though, to help you with your dreaming.
The plot is .73 dunam, zoned residential and ready for building in stunning Moshava Kinneret. Located at the end of the cul-de-sac, your new house will have knock-out views of the Sea of Galilee and mountains of the Golan. Moshava Kineret is only 8k south of the city of Tveria, in the Jordan Valley, with easy access north and south. Asking price is NIS 1,550,000.
The moshava (rural village) was founded in 1908 by the Israeli Bureau of the Zionist Federation, and with financial support from Baron Rothschild. Approximately 376 residents make their home on the moshav.
The entire Galil and northern Israel is filled with gorgeous open spaces, peaceful communities, breathtaking vistas and waiting for you.
