Full description:


This charming and very liveable three-bedroom bungalow is situated just a short walk from the Fres village plateia. Located in a very quiet and peaceful area off the main road, it offers the opportunity to enjoy the traditional village serenity that Crete is known for. Completed in 2008, the home has been perfectly maintained and landscaped. The home offers forever unobstructed views to the nearby White Mountains and surrounding countryside as well as toward the Akrotiri peninsula.

The spacious open plan sitting room and dining area has an energy-efficient closed fireplace for cozy winter nights plus two ceiling fans for the occasional warm mid-summer days. French doors open to the covered poolside veranda and outdoor dining/relaxing area. A large separate kitchen is complete with plenty of fitted cupboards and storage space.

Each of the three large bedrooms opens onto its own veranda with the master bedroom opening directly to the 35 sqm tiled swimming pool. Air-conditioning has been installed in each of the bedrooms. There are two bathrooms, one complete with a full bath plus bidet and the other a shower room. Each has plenty of storage space.

An external staircase at the rear of the home leads to a fully tiled rooftop terrace offering fantastic panoramic views. A further 63 sqm of building density is available and this could be used to make a fine covered veranda / outdoor dining area on the rooftop terrace.

The garden areas of the 740 sqm plot have been carefully landscaped with a variety of colourful flowers and shrubs plus a selection of fruit trees including 7 mature olive trees, 3 lemon trees, 1 grapefruit tree, 1 loquot tree, 2 winter orange trees, 1 bergamot orange tree, 1 pomegranate tree, 2 fig trees, 1 mandarin orange tree, 2 cherry trees and 1 persimmon tree.

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.
