Full description:

Located at the very edge of this sleepy village, this charming property with private swimming pool and shady courtyards has been beautifully renovated by the current owners and retains much of its former traditional characteristics. The year-round, administrative town of Vrisses is just a short, 5 minute drive away and offers all possible amenities. Georgioupolis seaside village is less than 8km from the house.

The interior is simple yet functional and very practical with modern, fully-fitted kitchen and bathrooms. Wood-beamed ceilings, white-washed walls, niches and stone-featured windows give an inviting ambiance to this home which exudes old-world charm and appeal. The 50cm thick stone walls ensure the house stays cool in summer and retains heat in winter.

INTERIOR: From this shady courtyard a few steps take one into the kitchen and dining area. A U-shaped work counter set partly on stone separates the kitchen from the dining area. There is a beautiful, handcrafted double door leading from the dining area to the quiet village lane.

From the shady front courtyard, one enters a wide hall leading to the two double bedrooms on the left and right side and the modern shower room located between the two bedrooms.

A futher door opens from the courtyard to a large guest studio with en-suite bathroom and mezzanine seating area. This spacious living space could also serve as master bedroom suite. There is a large dressing/storage room situated under the mezzanine which also serves as the laundry room. From the mezzanine sitting area is a lovely arched window overlooking the courtyard and countryside view.

OUTDOORS: On entering the property via the off-road parking area through a wooden gate, one is struck by the lovely shady courtyards and the long, rectangular, 45m2 tiled pool. A water well, built up with a stone wall, is tucked away in a further corner of the courtyard and has a constant supply of fresh water sourcing from under-ground streams. Various trees planted in the courtyard provide shady seating areas whereas the front entrance terrace leading into the house from the courtyard has a wooden pergola with an extendable canvas screen providing dense shade in summer. The swimming pool is tiled all round with a beautiful stone wall surrounding the pool terrace. At the far end of the pool, the attractive arched niches set in the stone wall currently contain some ancient ceramic urns but could also be fitted with lamps to give a lovely radiance over the pool at night. A staircase takes one up to the roof terrace where stunning, panoramic views of the serene countryside over rolling olive groves to the Kourna Lake mountains can be enjoyed. With some extra building allowance, it will be possible to build a further guest studio on the large roof area.

THE NEIGBOURING VILLAGES: VRISSES, the main nearby village is only 5 minutes' drive away and offers an array of Restaurants, Tavernas, Coffee shops, Pharmacy, School, Bank, Post Office, Gas station, Doctor, Dentist, Gift shops, Clothing & Shoe shops, Super & Mini markets and all further amenities. The seaside fishing village of GEORGIOUPOLIS with its long stretches of sandy beaches is about 10 minutes' drive away (Less than 8km). LAKE KOURNA, the only fresh-water lake on the island with its protected species of Karetta-Karetta turtle and other wild birdlife is less than15minutes' drive away and offers restaurants/tavernas, cafes and gift shops. Pedal-boating on the lake makes it possible to observe some of the bird and turtle species indigenous to the lake.
