Just within the limits of a small quiet hamlet 1.5kms from shops, this beautiful 11-room huge stone house lies in a large garden in a wooded valley near a small river. A good asphalt road serves the property, and it is only 6kms to the main shops and beaches in Kissamos, and 30 minutes to the Venetian city of Chania. Services are on site.

The current owners started renovations by carrying out primary structural works and some secondary renovation, but have now emigrated and reluctantly decided to sell.

There are five large rooms on the ground floor, with a mixture of earth and concrete floors. One room contains a large stone fireplace. There is a small concrete courtyard with planting area, and two external bread ovens. There is also a large storage room on the southern boundary.

There are external steps to the first floor, which contains a further six rooms, and most of the secondary renovation has taken place here. There are a rudimentary bathroom, kitchen, living room with fireplace, and bedroom. It would be possible to "live rough" on the first floor while repairs are carried out. To the rear of the first floor is a large external terrace, and the roof could also be used as a further terrace.

The property has plenty of space for extensive gardens, parking and a pool if required. It would suit clients who long for a large traditional house with "space to breathe" in rural peace, yet within easy reach of all facilities - a rare combination!
