A truly stunning and unique property for sale located in the village of Choumeri. An amazing opportunity to buy a single level villa in a private location in Central Crete.
Set proudly among the olive groves, the property enjoys complete privacy, yet is only a few minutes' walking from the village.
The house is a total of 274m2 and also has a 44m2 garage and a 20m2 basement.
The one-storey villa has been cleverly laid out; in the front is the main part which is the heart of the property housing the comfortable living quarters and the kitchen, while the bedrooms are set in a semi circle around the living area.
The main entrance door opens into a spacious open plan kitchen/living/dining area of about 86m2. To the right is the blue-green large kitchen offering plenty of storage cupboards and a breakfast bar. The kitchen is equipped with a double sink, fitted stainless steel oven, an electric hob and an eye level fitted oven and micro wave.
Lots of windows and doors provide an abundance of natural light flooding in, while overlooking the surrounding hills and mountains. Plenty of patio doors give access to the tiled exterior areas and the swimming pool.
Separated from the living area are the 5 bedrooms and the 2 bathrooms. The bedrooms are all very spacious and comfortable. Four of them are equipped with a reversible air-conditioning unit. Most of the bedrooms have either a free standing wardrobe or floor to ceiling fitted wardrobes. The larger bedroom provides access via patio doors to a hard covered terrace and into another covered garden area which is at the back of the house. A BBQ area has been planned and there is water and electricity supply.
The long and narrow hallway is equipped with plenty of floor-to-ceiling fitted wardrobes, providing plenty of storage space.
The main bathroom is very spacious, including a separate WC, a full length bathtub with Jacuzzi, a separate built shower area and a big towel rail. The second shower room down the hall has a built shower and also houses the washing machine.
Still on the same level, a door opens into the garage with a wooden sloped ceiling. From the garage steps lead to a basement used to store the reserve water tank and as a storage area.
A long partly concreted driveway bordered with olive trees and colorful oleanders lead up to the entrance of the house and provide easy access to the garage.
At the front of the house is the 30m2 private "L" shaped swimming pool with large Roman steps. This salt water pool has a counter current system installed. A sun terrace behind the pool offers enough room for sun beds while a small covered exterior area has room to install outdoor furniture, behind the pool. There is an exterior shower at the side of the house.
The house is surrounded by tiled paths, while the boiler room is attached to the back of the house.
A beautiful stone built exterior staircase leads from the pool area at the top level of the land and then onto the massive roof terrace. This terrace is divided into a separate area for the solar panel, a very large lounge area with a pergola which is part covered, two small roof gardens and a storage space to store some tables, chairs and more. The part of the roof terrace where the solar panel is installed has already been prepared for the future installation of a photovoltaic system. There is also a water and an electricity supply on the terrace. The mountain views from here are unobstructed and very impressive!!!
There is a garden area next to the garage, with plenty of privacy and lots of potential. A few steps down lead to a private sauna, surrounded by luscious greenery!
