Full description:

3 bedroom/3 bathroom (including the guest studio) property of 160sqm on 600sqm plot with swimming pool. The property is located in the small hamlet of Ag.Pavlos, close to Gavalochori. It has been renovated and updated whilst retaining all the features and characteristics that the owners fell in love with many years ago.
This amazing renovated house has been updated to modern standards but has retained all the character of the original house. Original flagstones in the courtyard have been retained which blend sympathetically with the terracotta tiles through the house. The bright primary colours used on the front door, the bathroom and en-suite prevent the villa from becoming bijou. The house is a testament to the owners' dedication to keeping the traditional values and should be viewed to fully appreciate the amount of work and dedication built into the lovely home. Early viewing is highly recommended.Traditional whitewashed stone walls and full sized arched gates open under an arched walkway into the flagstone paved courtyard where there are 2 entrances into the house - one into the kitchen and the other into the main living room. A half-glazed double door opens into the traditional kitchen with its original beamed ceiling. Whilst stone is used in abundance, the floor here is tiled in terracotta. The kitchen, with a layout in keeping with the style of the house is found to the left. Here is a stainless steel sink set in well maintained wooden work surfaces. The free-standing oven, wooden floor units and open shelving provides a good working space.A traditional stone arch frames the dining area and the old Fornos or bread oven has cleverly been utilised as a storage area. Other traditional features include a niche which is utilised as a glassware storage area plus the protruding stone slab previously used as the draining board.A short hallway leading to the living room unexpectedly transforms into a raised sleeping platform which was previously the wine press and is a perfect place for a post lunch nap. It is also the solution to accommodating guests. Another stone arch offers a small seating area neatly tucked away. This area also doubles up as a small officeTurning right and up 3 steps is the next surprise element of this quaint house. The scarlet tiles of the bathroom add a real zing of colour to the area surrounding the bath with contrasting lime green floor and borders. A bespoke vanity unit with storage cupboard holds the marble hand basin with the WC sited neatly next to some open wooden shelving. The washing machine is also located in this room. The formal living room is expansive with double height ceilings. The arched doorway on the right opens to the main courtyard. A classic fireplace with wood burning insert is set in a pillared-stone fire surround. The fire also runs the central heating for the 8 radiators throughout the house. Open shelving emphasises the generous width of the room and a traditional stone niche enhances the stone highlights round the doorway. A wooden staircase rises to the mezzanine.The mezzanine bedroom area is generous and impressive with the huge beams of the ceiling reflecting the colour of the wooden floor. Here again the use of stone round the door and shelving all reinforces the origins of the house. The owner has cleverly installed an ensuite shower room with hand-basin, WC and shower. The room is tiled in fresh lime green and the ensuite is finished with a heated towel rail. Immediately outside the bedroom is the good sized roof terrace from which the exceptional views across the surrounding olive groves and the garden are relaxing and peacefulReturning to the ground floor and onward through the snug arched doorway, the area opens into an amazingly light room with charming wooden paned windows. This room almost equates to a conservatory and is multi-functional as the brightness of the room makes it an ideal reading or hobbies room. The current owners use it as a formal dining room with views out to the bespoke pool. The bi-fold doors open to the vine covered pool terrace creating a shady outside dining area. Outside:The bespoke pool was designed by the owner and his wife to blend in with traditional surroundings. It has a white liner which creates the glorious pale blue-green of the pool. The retaining walls are natural old stone and the pool is finished with cream coping stones. Guest Studio: Returning to the main courtyard and towards the main entrance is the blue part glazed door which is the access to the quaint guest suite. The walls are rustic white painted stone with a Cretan stone arch spanning the width of the room which separates the room into different living areas of seating, kitchenette, sleeping platform and shower room. A stone sink & matching slab which belonged to the original building are incorporated into the kitchen area. Plentiful seating space outside the studio is available for casual seating, dining and shade making a pleasing private retreat for guests. Garden and courtyard: The external areas are of key importance to the villa starting with the delightful entrance which used to be the animal shelter. This arched entrance way then opens up into the main courtyard with the guest studio on the left. A stone path then winds its way through the climber and Plumbago covered stone wall then into the private garden and pool area. Stone steps continue down past the pool to the vegetable garden. Here on the right is one of the prettiest workshops which has been built in a rustic style similar to the conservatory. Whilst this does not have any real defined status other than a work-shop, it is pretty enough to be converted to a usable studio, hobbies or craft room and possibly further guest accommodation if desired. Property features:Renovated 3 bedroom/3 bathroom property which includes a separate guest studio and a swimming pool near to Gavalochori and within easy reach of the beach at Almerida
