A truly amazing six-bedroom villa for sale, with a private pool, landscaped gardens and stunning views to the White Mountains, in the village of Kaina near Vamos.
Built to high standards, the house has traditional features and yet is equipped with all modern amenities. It boosts elegance and style, is functional and well maintained and blends perfectly in the Cretan environment.
The house is bright and airy and very well maintained. A lot of thought have been given to the orientation of the exterior spaces and the lay out.
Stone steps lead from the road to the entrance of the house protected by a tiled pergola. The stairs are secured by low stone walls and flower beds on both sides, making it all very colorful and welcoming.
You enter in a large hallway, with dark terra cotta floor tiles, wooden ceiling, the staircase leading to the upper floor, a storage and a WC. A double glass door opens to the spacious and comfortable living/dining area, with wooden floor, a built in fire place, wood beamed ceiling, built in bookcase and cupboards. Long windows create a constant flow of light and give the room a modern look.
To the left is a fully equipped kitchen corner with dark colored cupboards for storage and stainless steel electrical appliances. A door leads to the garage and storage area on the lower floor.
An arched glass door gives access to a large covered balcony equipped with sun screens for hot or windy days and extended with a pergola. This L shaped flowery and protected balcony is the perfect place for outdoor living, with the majestic White Mountains in the background.
Tiled stairs lead to the upper floor consisting of 4 rooms and a bathroom. One of the rooms is quite small and is used as an office. The large master bedroom has a walk in closet, a storage room that was meant to be a bathroom (is provided with the water outlets) but is actually used as storage, and a covered veranda. The bed is facing a glass sliding door offering a framed view of the mountains as a backdrop.
Two more spacious bedrooms are on this floor, as well as a bathroom with a built shower and a wall mounted toilet.
All rooms have free standing wardrobes and high quality wooden floors and ceilings.
The lower floor can be reached either by exterior steps or from the kitchen and consists of 5 different parts. The main area is a completely self sufficient guest accommodation with a stylish living area with big patio doors, an equipped kitchen corner including dishwasher, 2 air-conditioned bedrooms with ceiling fans, and a shower room with a built tiled bench with the wash basin, a built shower, WC and the washing machine.
There is also a garage, a storage room, a laundry room with a washing machine, tumble dryer and sink and another storage room with the steps to the top floor, all interlinked by doors.
The entire plot is terraced and has stone supporting walls, is leveled, walled and planted with a variety of plants, mature trees and shrubs.
A large stone-paved driveway leads along the house to the garage at the back. Parallel to it are the stone steps leading to the entrance.
The 26m2 kidney shaped pool is on the same level as the lower floor, has easy access and enjoys amazing mountain views. A comfortable tiled area offers plenty of space for umbrellas and soaking up the sun. A spacious covered balcony offers the much needed shade during the hot summer months. The pool area is fenced and bordered with colorful flowers and shrubs, and the entire plot is walled.
The house enjoys total privacy; the terraced gardens are immaculately landscaped and accessed via a series of stone paths. There are many types of trees in the gardens - including pomegranate, grapefruit, lemon, plum, orange, grapefruit, mandarins and bananas trees. The outside areas are extremely well designed with plenty of terraces and areas with secluded spots for relaxing, dining and for soaking up the sun.
