A truly stunning property for sale near the village of Xamoudohori. An amazing opportunity to buy a luxury villa in a private location in Western Crete.
Set proudly among the olive groves, the property enjoys complete privacy, yet is only a few minutes' drive from the sea.
Built to the highest standards, no effort or expense has been spared when this sumptuous house was conceived. It is well thought out, functional, tastefully-decorated with an eye for detail and is extremely well maintained. Its architecture and elegant ambience blend perfectly with the surrounding olive groves.
The one-storey villa consists of three areas that are cleverly connected by a hallway laid out in a semi circle and giving access to the different areas. The middle and main part is the heart of the property housing the comfortable living quarters and the main entrance. The west part consists of the kitchen and the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and walk-in closet. The east part comprises the guest rooms and a spacious bathroom.
The main entrance is protected by a tiled, covered white pergola with columns and opens into a hallway with a WC. A large, matt glass, double door opens into a comfortable, spacious, tastefully decorated living/dining area. Lots of windows and doors provide an abundance of natural light flooding in. Ceiling fans and air conditioning keep the area cool during hot summer days and under-floor heating provides warmth on cooler winter days.
Two large sliding doors open to the exterior areas and the swimming pool, all set on one level for easy access. To the left and separated from the living room, a modern, fully-equipped U-shaped kitchen stands out with its deep red colour bordered with white worktops. A glass door leads to a white, wood, beamed pergola with stylish columns supporting the terracotta tiles, the ideal place for outdoor wining and dining. Another door leads from the kitchen to a small hallway where a spacious utility room is found and eventually leading to the sunny south-facing master bedroom, equipped with an en-suite shower room with a glass walk-in shower cubicle, a wall-mounted toilet and bidet, a sink and modern accessories. Adjacent to this room there is also a walk-in wardrobe. The utility room with the washing machine, tumble dryer, ironing board etc is a useful space away from the living rooms.
Separated from the main living quarters by a door and in total privacy are three comfortable double bedrooms, a bathroom and additional storage space. Each bedroom has a floor-to-ceiling wardrobe, air conditioning, a ceiling fan and access to a terrace or balcony with wonderful views. The bathroom is equipped with two basins, a wall-mounted WC, a corner bathtub and a walk-in glass shower cubicle.
Tiled steps with aluminium banisters lead to the spacious basement that has been divided into four different rooms plus an additional bathroom. There is a storage room, a room for the storage of the olive oil and wine, a technical room with the water tank and pressure pump, one room that could serve as a playroom/gym/ping pong/billiards room. The bathroom offers a wall-to-wall shower, a sink and wall-mounted WC. The basement is fully tiled and equipped with under-floor heating (except the technical room).
Where Eden awaits....
Even from outside this property impresses. As you arrive, a large electric gate opens to a spacious, extremely well maintained and landscaped area with stamped concrete bordered with flower beds, low stone walls and a variety of flowers and bushes. A smaller gate provides access for the pedestrians. A separate building houses the garage with an electric gate and attached to it, a segregated room houses the huge generator (in case of power cut).
There are plenty of sitting corners spread all over the plot, offering a choice of shade or sun. The colourful garden has plenty of space for both sun worshippers and for children who like to run around and play. To the east side of the plot, a private olive grove with 17 olive trees provides its own top-quality olive oil (80-100 litres per year). The selling price includes the equipment for the picking and collecting of the olives. Beside olive trees, this Garden of Eden is home to a number of typically Mediterranean flowering shrubs including: sweet scented jasmine, oleander, bird of paradise, bougainvillea, jacaranda, callistemon (bottle brush), ficus, plumbago, canna etc - as well as a variety of fruit trees such as orange trees, lemons, kumquat, pomegranate, mulberry, pepper tree.
Special attention has been paid to the pool terrace and dining terrace where you can chill out or dine al-fresco in total privacy, with a choice of sun or shade. The 10m x 4m pool looks down the valley of olive groves and vineyards to the sea. The pool also features a children's area and is surrounded with light-coloured tiles and plenty of space for the sun loungers and umbrellas. Two tiled, covered, white pergolas have been furnished with comfortable exterior furniture to relax as well as a dining table with chairs. A stone wall with security banister, niches and plenty of flowers surrounds the pool.
A few stone steps lead to a lower terrace below the pool area with a neat lawn, an ideal and secure place for the children. There is also plenty of space for a vegetable garden or for keeping chickens if the new owner so wishes. A small area has been left natural with wild flowers in the spring and rocky outcrops.
As an additional bonus, the entire plot is provided with a water evacuation system for excess rain water and is entirely walled and fenced.
Just a couple of minutes walking is the lovely village of Xamoudohori, a typical traditional Cretan village with a kafeneon in the village square. The perfect place to meet the very friendly village locals!
A little further down the road, just a 5-minute drive away, is the more lively, larger village of Maleme, providing many amenities including a supermarket, pharmacy, bakery, restaurants, local transport links, shops, a vet, and more. The beach of Maleme is quiet and there are many tavernas and bars along the seafront.
With well-landscaped gardens, large private swimming pool, garage and extensive terraces, this property has it all.
Fully equipped for year-round living, it has great rental potential or could be used as holiday home. The environment is peaceful and green and it is ideally located with the beach and amenities just a couple of minutes away by car - Chania is a 20-minute drive.
