When the current owner bought the property it was just a shell so it was modernised to their own design, and what a fantastic job they made of it.
Steps lead to the front door and once through the front door we come to the split level diner/lounge area. The diner is on the lower level and the striking aspect of this room is the two large windows maximising the light and airy atmosphere.
The lounge can be found on the upper level. This room boasts a fully functioning wood burning fire complete with chimney. Furniture in the lounge consists of both a 3 seater and 2 seater settee and TV. The room is fully air conditioned, has a large ceiling fan and again displays intelligent use of windows giving as much light as possible.
Through the lounge we come to the separate kitchen area containing a MIDEA oven and gas hob, MIDEA washing machine, MIDEA microwave oven, and COOLSTAR fridge/freezer. Sliding doors lead from the kitchen to the large outside patio.
A bathroom, complete with a very deep bath, overhead shower vanity unit and toilet completes the ground floor rooms.
Wooden stairs lead up to the first floor where the two bedrooms can be found.
The double sized master bedroom has an en suite shower room with walk-in shower, air conditioning, plenty of wardrobe space and traditional matting ceilings. In fact this type of ceiling has been constructed throughout the house. Sliding doors lead from this bedroom to the patio - more of the patio in a minute!!
The second bedroom is the same generous size as the master and has the same features apart from the en-suite shower. This room has custom made cabinets and wardrobes. Again this room has patio doors lead to the outside terrace.
Let's describe the upstairs terrace now. It is the same terrace that can be accessed from both bedrooms, and has an overhead pergola. To give some idea of the size of the area, the terrace is large enough to easily accommodate a table for 6 people. The views from the terrace are stunning. The foothills of the Troodos mountains are immediately to the front and the sparkling Mediterranean is to the left. The property is built in such an elevated position the views will never be obstructed.
Steps lead from the upper patio, down the side of the house to the private courtyard, which is reached from the house by sliding doors from the lounge/diner and from the kitchen. So it can be seen that when the house was being modernised, easy access to the outside area was of paramount importance. Stone walls surround the courtyard which is partly covered by a pergola with an abundance of greenery to give protection from the fierce Cyprus sun should that be desired. The patio area also contains plenty of potted plants and shrubbery, 3 sheds/storage area - ideal for kindling the wood for the fire, an outside shower and a clay oven.
But it is the overall 'character' of the house which needs emphasizing with its thick stone walls, its slightly sloping floors that contain furniture that has had to be specially designed to stop sliding, its matted ceilings and the overall quality that is obvious throughout the house.
This is a lovingly designed and maintained property that is realistically priced and ideal for someone looking for traditional Cypriot living.
