From the living room steps ascend to the rear of the house and a bedroom with ceiling fan and which retains the original stone oven fašade set into the wall which, lit up, makes a wonderful feature. There is a large fully tiled bathroom with large corner bath plus washing machine and tumble dryer and a door out to the rear terrace.
Leading off from the front courtyard is an independent air conditioned studio with bedroom and full en-suite bathroom. This is plastered and painted white with blue door and window shutters.
The main house has been restored from the original and combines the traditional character of a Cretan house with the modern conveniences required for today's comfortable lifestyle. Doors and shutters are wooden, there are high timber ceiling beams and a terracotta-tiled roof. Cabling is installed for future central heating if required. The house has its own septic tank.
There is plenty of room for a swimming pool if required. In additional to the front courtyard and rear terrace, a wide paved terrace runs around the side of the house and below the courtyard there are citrus and pomegranate trees.
The property is set back above a quiet village road with off-street parking a few metres away and has a fabulous boundary wall topped by iron railings. It is located in a rural village above a green valley. The village has a cafeneion and a taverna. The village has a lot of history dating back to Minoan times and there have been some important archaeological finds made in the area. The village is easily accessible from the main north-south road and is 15 minutes from Sitia on the north and about the same distance down to the seaside town of Makrigialos.
This is such an interesting house. Obviously it is ideal for permanent living, but it also makes a unique holiday home in this beautiful and unspoiled part of Crete.
