Wonderful semi-detached three storey stone built villa, situated in the old town of Chania within the narrow and graphic alleys!
Built around the 1.500's, the house was built by the Venetians and later belonged to a Turkish family until a Greek family took over. The current owner purchased the property in 2006 and entirely renovated it in 2008.
This spacious villa has fantastic views from the top floor, overlooking the surrounding houses and old ruins, the port and the sea, all the way until Akrotiri Peninsular.
The main entrance is on the ground floor and opens onto a spacious and open kitchen/dining area.
The kitchen is equipped with light green cupboards and includes a dish washer, a single sink and a fitted hob with two burners fitted in the worktop.
There is under stairs storage space and a beautiful arch on one side of the wall as well as a niche with shelves. The beamed ceilings are higher than usual, making the space very light and airy.
Beautiful stone steps with a custom made wrought iron banister lead to the middle floor. From a small hall to the right is the guest bedroom with a double bed and a free standing cupboard. From the window one can see the lovely ancient ruins just across.
An arched door opens into the master bedroom which also includes an en suite bathroom with a spacious walk in shower. Three windows bring in a lot of light and overlook the alleys and surrounding ruins.
A wooden staircase with the same iron banister leads to the top and last floor. This floor comprises of a shower room and a living room area which is also used as a 3rd bedroom. There is a "L" shaped built in seating area and wooden patio doors open onto a tiled balcony with stunning north-east views over the sea, the port, the surrounding rooftops and all the way until Akrotiri Peninsular!
The house has beamed ceilings throughout and ceiling fans in all areas.
This unique property was built over five hundred years ago and has been tastefully restored. The current owners have kept the original features as much as possible. Unusually for old town Chania, the house is exceptionally light and airy.
The property is centrally located in Splantzia, the historic Turkish quarter of the town, with its delightful maze of typical narrow alleys for wandering and exploring. The main point of interest is Splantzia Square where you will now find pleasant coffee shops in the shade of a large plane tree.
Amenities, shops, tavernas, cafes and the charming old Venetian port are just a breath away. The beach of Koum Kapi is 3 minutes walking and is overlooked by a beachfront of cafes.
A historic property with a lot of potential, ideal for year round living, as a holiday home and even as a rental property!
