This spacious house lies on a hillside 5 minutes from shops and beaches at Maleme and Gerani, and 25 minutes from the busy Venetian city of Chania. Located on the edge of a village, it enjoys beautiful panoramic views of the sea, surrounding countryside, and distant mountains.
On the main floor, there are: a huge living room with timber display ceiling, fireplace, and glazed doors leading to the large front balcony; a fitted kitchen/dining room leading to the rear verandah, shaded pergola, and garden; a large main bedroom with fitted wardrobe and access to the front balcony; a second large bedroom with fitted wardrobe; and a large fitted and fully-tiled family bathroom with washing machine, and storage area above.

The rear verandah and pergola provide further shaded dining space during the long summer season.
On the lower floor is a large store room with power/lighting installed, a diesel boiler and fuel tank for the central heating system, and plenty of space for tool and equipment storage.
The house lies in a huge plot, with mature gardens and watering systems front and rear.

All services are connected.
