This traditional stone house has been fully renovated, and is located in a quiet village 5 minutes from the shops and beaches of Kissamos, and 30 minutes from the bustling Venetian city of Chania. It enjoys pretty valley and rural views. The village has a traditional kafeneion, and the next village 2kms away has a butcher, baker and two general stores.

The house has been renovated well, retaining many of the original stone features and using traditional materials, but also incorporating modern conveniences and with tiled floors throughout. The walls are 50cms thick, keeping the house cool in summer and warm in winter. Solar panels provide hot water, and an open fireplace provides welcome warmth in winter.

The entrance to the house comprises a hall area, leading to the bedrooms and living room. The living room is large, with an open fireplace, air-conditioning, arched door and two large windows. It leads into the spacious kitchen/dining room, which has fitted kitchen units, timber beam ceiling, and external timber/glazed doors accessing the rear terrace and garden. Another door leads to the stone-flagged bathroom, which contains a glass-brick shower, WC, sink and plumbing for a washing machine. The main double bedroom is access from the entrance hall, and has two large windows and air-conditioning. The second single bedroom is also accessed from the hall, and has a fanlight window.

Outside, the plot is walled on all boundaries, and there is a stone wall/railings to the road frontage, with a pedestrian gate and large electrically-operated gate which accesses the parking area. To the side and rear of the house, are a huge shaded terrace and BBQ. The garden is large, with a central grassed area, planted areas with mature trees and shrubs, and a watering system. There is plenty of space room for a pool if wanted.

The house has been restored to a high standard in traditional style, and is fitted with timber doors, windows and shutters, solar panels, reserve water tank, and an alarm system. Telephone, internet, TV and satellite connections are all available. Some furniture and fittings may be available by separate negotiation.

This is a great opportunity to own a nicely renovated stone home in a traditional village, yet live within easy reach of all facilities. The house is on offer at a sensible price, and is ready to move into.
