This amazing 3-bed single level property has so many unique advantages it must be seen to be fully appreciated!
First, it is a bungalow with no steps to negotiate, unless one wants to go up to the roof terrace. Second, it is a beautifully designed home surrounded by tall plane trees and with spring-fed streams flowing on two sides of the property offering very welcome coolness on occasional hot days.
Add to all these that the property offers great mountain views, complete privacy, and the opportunity to enjoy Cretan life to the fullest!
The front door of the home opens to a spacious sitting room with plenty of seating area and a closed wood-burning fireplace that the owners also use for winter-time cooking. Sliding glass doors lead directly to the broad rear veranda, barbecue, and garden and outside seating areas.
The breakfast area and fully-equipped kitchen are separated from the sitting room by a lovely traditional stone arch. The kitchen features built-in appliances and loads of cupboard and storage space. There is an exit from the kitchen directly to the rear veranda.
A hallway from the sitting room leads to the three bedrooms plus a storeroom and the guest toilet with a full bath. All three of the bedrooms access their own individual verandas and the surrounding gardens. The master bedroom has an en suite full bathroom with an elegant corner tub and of course access to its veranda and the gardens.
Entry to the 7,000m2 plot and 110m2 home is via a private road leading thorough the orchard. There are tall plane trees and oak trees on three sides of plot and two mountain-fed streams flow to the sides. The home is virtually hidden from the road!
The covered barbecue and its adjacent seating areas as well as the large orchards with seating areas and of course the nearby streams offer many varied opportunities to enjoy the Cretan climate year round. And there are fine views to the White Mountains from the gardens as well as the roof terrace.
As this home is also in some ways a farm home, the owners have a huge storage shed for their gardening tools as well as their own tractor lawnmower. The gardens are all irrigated using water pumped from the nearby streams.
There is plenty of space and many excellent locations for a swimming pool should the new owner desire.
The home is a short 5 minute drive from the beaches at Kalives, and an easy drive or bike ride to both the lovely square in Stylos as well as the bustling seaside village of Kalives.
The traditional village of Stylos has a number of tavernas/restaurants as well as mini markets while the busier village of Kalyves which is open all year round, offers all types of amenities such as super markets, bank, post office, bars and restaurants, bookshops and many more!
This home has been designed and built to be enjoyed year-round, inside, as well as outside!
