All bedrooms exit out to a balcony terrace running around the house.
From the entrance reception room, a wide spiral staircase ascends to the upper floor which is open plan and has wonderful views from each window, ranging the full 360 degrees with a spacious balcony terrace front and rear. The sea and mountain views are particularly magnificent.
The fireplace is supplied by gas bottle and has a log fire effect.

The lower ground floor comprises an independent guest apartment and two storage areas, one of which has the central heating boiler and oil tank. The apartment was designed to be more traditional Cretan style. There is a kitchen with double sink, cooker and fridge/freezer; dining area; living room looking out to the front terrace with its attractive flora and palm tree; built in sofa bed; sofa; bathroom with walk-in shower, sink and toilet; two bedrooms with walk-in wardrobes. Central heating cabling exists for future installation of radiators. This guest apartment has its own private terrace.
For dog lovers there is a two bedroom dog kennel with its own pergola for shade.
Part of the garden, at the sea facing side of the house and within sight of the upper floor’s balcony, is the perfect area for a swimming pool - as was the original idea.
The current home owners offer to build a new pool, of approximate 30-40m2, in this area.
The pool will be constructed according to the liking of the new owners.
Leading off from here, is a covered BBQ area with oven and seating.
The house has full central heating, solar panels and satellite dish.
The entrance garden has citrus trees and fig trees, colourful plants, flowers and shrubs, plus a variety of cacti. There is a large reservoir filled from the main supply system and held in case of rare water cuts. A very good septic tank enables paper to be disposed directly into the toilet. The plot has a façade on to the access road and the present owner had plans to put a tennis court there. On the sea facing side, the plot in front of the house is too small to build upon and the plot in front of that is much lower down, so the views can never be obstructed.
This exceptional property was designed especially to the requirements of the vendor and is modern, stylish and was completed to a high standard with good quality fittings and fixtures. From its elevated position the views are really outstanding, yet road access is good and while the area is peaceful and tranquil, it is not remote.
Nearby is a luxury resort hotel and the creation of the new national highway means the present highway will become a more peaceful coastal road, encouraging the prices to rise in this area.
Agios Nikolaos is within a 10 minute drive one way and the beaches and facilities of Istron, within 5 minutes in the other direction.
Agios Nikolaos is the capital of the county Lasithi and is located at the Mirabello Bay, north-east Crete, only 40mins away from the international airport of Heraklion.
Geographically the town is well protected from strong winds allowing sea sports and swimming nearly all year round.
Although Agios Nikolaos has a population of less than 20,000 it has a several banks, supermarkets, shops of every kind, doctors, a modern hospital of high standard, public swimming pool and tennis courts, yacht marina, harbour, cinema, theatre, gyms, a 9-hole golf course, schools ranging from nurseries to 6-level high school and generally all the amenities you would expect to find in a large modern European town.
The microclimate is one of the best in Greece and the moderate temperatures rarely exceed 30c in summer or fall below 15c in wintertime. This wonderful dry climate together with the natural beauty of the area has attracted most of the high class hotels of Greece to operate here.
