In an ideal location between Almirida and the traditional village of Plaka, is this property which has been designed to fully appreciate the picture perfect views of the Aegean Sean and surrounding nature which has the ambience of a tropical island.
One enters the property via a long driveway from the main road arriving at one of two ends of the driveway, the lower end leading straight to a covered parking area and garage and the upper end to the pergola-covered BBQ/outdoor kitchen and shady external dining area with breathtaking views over lush countryside to Souda Bay. From the lower driveway and garage is a shady terrace with access via a few steps to the pool terrace where there is a further shaded seating area with views over the pool to the sea. There is also access from the BBQ entertainment area to the pool via a veranda spanning the whole of the front of the house.
This villa, with its beautifully maintained gardens, stone-paved steps and walkways with a stone arch in a very strategic position in the garden, was designed for outdoor living, making full use of all vantage points to benefit from the panoramic views of the White Mountains and the sea to one side, and rocks and crannies on the other which is a sanctuary for various species of birds and other wild birds of prey, including Cretan golden eagle, owls, griffon vultures, crested larks, swallows and even kingfishers & hoopoes.
The villa has a practical layout with a spacious, airy, open-plan living/dining and fully equipped kitchen with two bedrooms and two bathrooms spanning this level. The two bedrooms are separated by the living area, and the main bedroom with its en-suite shower room has a slightly separated veranda with steps giving access down to the swimming pool terrace. Sliding doors from the second bedroom and living room open onto the large, pergola-covered terrace which has unobstructed views to Souda Bay over the picturesque village roof tops of Almirida.
A staircase leads down from the dining/living room to the lower level where there are further possibilities for transforming this area into a separate guest apartment with two bedrooms and shower room, since there is already a shower room located on this level, and some of the space is being used for guest accommodation and separate storage. The garage and extra storage as well as the central heating system are also on this level.
The garden has been lovingly designed and cared for by the owners who have spent thousands of euros on landscaping, planting of exotic palms, evergreen shrubs & flowering plants, and building stone-paved walkways, stone steps and a unique stone arch adding to the charm of this lovely home.
