A unique opportunity to purchase a renovated traditional Cretan village house tastefully renovated by the current owners.
This house dates from about 1800 and has been fully renovated by the present owners. They have kept the original style and features and maintained the typical village style. The house has a history; it used to be the family home of the village teacher and there used to be an olive press.
The house stands on a large plot within the village boundaries. Numerous spacious terraces, sitting corners and stone-flagged paths - even a small roof terrace under the shade of a huge tree - are well laid out for outdoor living.
There are two gated entrances, one giving access to the guest accommodation (family room) and one with steps leading to the main entrance and the big terrace covered with vines and bougainvillea.
The tall main entrance door opens to an open-plan living/dining room with an L-shaped kitchen. The space is light and airy and has a fireplace.
A small archway leads to the corridor with the master bedroom to the right, the second bedroom to the left and at the end of the hall a large bathroom with a built-in shower, the washing machine and the original marble sink. A door opens to the garden area behind the house which houses an old stone building that could be renovated according to the new owner's needs and an additional shed.
Wooden steps lead down from the living area to the huge cool family room that could easily be separated into two comfortable rooms. The original timber ceilings have been preserved and two beautiful arches give a traditional feel to the room. One of the arches is still original, the other has been renewed. This room also has its own entrance and could be a perfect separate guest accommodation.
The wrap-around garden is a revelation, an oasis of greenery in the village. Various fruit trees (orange, lemon, pomegranate, mandarin, bergamot, damson, apricot and fig) are to be found, stone-flagged paths, terraces, a special little sitting corner on the small roof terrace with a distant sea view, sitting corners and shaded places will make your life comfortable during the hot summer days. There is a possibility to build a pool. The main courtyard contains an outdoor kitchen, BBQ and bread oven.
The property is positioned in the quiet village of Neriana, located between Tavronitis and Voukolies. The beach is a mere 10-minute drive and there is a well-known local taverna just minutes walk from the property. The village of Tavronitis with its amenities and the junction to the national road is a 10-minute drive. Chania is a 30-minute drive away and the airport 45 minutes.
Don't miss this excellent opportunity to obtain this fully-furnished, tastefully-renovated property in a quiet setting yet only a few minutes drive from facilities.
