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.
