Full description:

This luxurious two story four-bedroom villa is located in the beautiful village of Aptera, famous for its long history dating back to the Minoan era. Aptera (and its neigbour Megala Chorafia) are small traditional villages only 12 km from Chania and are well known for their dry climate and beautiful hills. The area is very popular with the elite and local professionals and this is one reason the property values are high. The second reason of course is the views to Souda Bay, Kalives Bay and the open sea absolutely unbeatable! And excellent mountain views as well.

Much of Aptera is owned by the archaeological department and it is strictly protected by special building codes and regulations so the village will maintain its historical characteristics. Ancient Aptera is perhaps the most important archaeological site in the whole municipality of Chania.

The village offers a variety of traditional taverns, a well-stocked mini-market and easy access to a very well scheduled public transportation system. Aptera is only 1 km away from small crystal clear beaches and less than 3 km from the beaches at Kalami and Kalives.

This villa is situated on a steep slope in an amphitheatric estate offering idyllic views of Souda Bay and Kalives Bay and the White Mountains. From the villa one can see 14 villages nestled in the hills and valleys east of Chania

The home has 191 sqm of living space on a plot of 3.919 sqm. The main entry leads to the upper floor with a large open kitchen, dining area, gracious sitting room with fireplace and a sitting area with huge picture windows facing the sea. There is a large bedroom on this level presently used as a home office plus a spacious full bath.

The lower level reached via a wide marble staircase has a further three large bedrooms plus yet another spacious full bath.

Terraces on both levels offer pleasant areas to enjoy the fine views.

Additional features include a magnificent wood-beamed pitched roof above the entry level with massive beams and excellent craftsmanship, highest quality aluminium doors and windows, a large paved private entrance with parking for three cars, electrically-operated steel gate, large boiler and storage rooms with separate entrances, solar panel, satellite dish, fast internet connection, and more. There is also an unfinished outdoor sauna with stunnning views of the bay and plenty of space should the new owner wish to add a pool and/or a BBQ.

The owners of this villa built this fine home with much care and love for their own use and it is indeed soundly constructed, solidly set in the mountain hillside to the highest anti-seismic regulations. An ideal home nature lovers, writers, artists, or anyone seeking simplicity and nature's blessings.

The selling price is exclusive of property transfer tax, legal expenses and agency fees.

About Kritiko Ethos Estates, Apokoronas

Kritiko Ethos Estates is a leading real estate agency in Western Crete. We first opened our doors in 2003 and soon became the prime estate agent in Georgioupolis. We later moved closer to home in Kalives. Our focus has been and continues to be first and foremost to listen to our clients, to ensure we understand what they are seeking, and to discuss with them every aspect of buying a home and living in Crete. We have chosen to be much more than simply estate agents but rather to be your new friends in Crete providing advice and guidance within the real estate market here. Our objective is to help you to make your home in Crete, not just to buy a house or a plot of land..

We have also elected to be very strict with our listings to ensure that every home we add to our portfolio, be it a luxury villa, a traditional stone home, or a simple townhouse, meets our high standards of design and construction. We do not accept listings from disreputable builders or from owners who are not able to provide the full set of sale documents as required by law.

Despite the negative press that Greece seems to be receiving, our island of Crete is still very warm and sunny, the food is just as good if not better than before, the traditional Cretan hospitality is warmer than ever. And best of all, the prices of land and homes continue to fall ... excellent news for buyers determined to escape to a warm and friendly island home! Kritiko Ethos Estates is pleased to announce that Crete remains the PERFECT place for a holiday home or retirement living. With our modern and up-to-date telecommunications systems, it is also an ideal place from which to run an internet-based business.
