This property is in a small hamlet near Kissamos which enjoys sea and mountain views, and is only 600 metres from a sandy beach. Kissamos, with its shops and beaches, is just 3 minutes away, and the bustling Venetian city of Chania is within 30 minutes. The house is ideally located for exploring local beaches, as well as the famous Balos and Falassarna beaches.
Built around 2003, the property is on 3 main levels:
The huge roof terrace is reached by wide spiral steps, has lovely sea and mountain views, and large pergolas could be added to provide welcome shade. There is a large 20m2 room currently housing only a reserve water tank, which could be converted to a kitchen to service guests using the roof terrace.
The upper floor is 3 metres above street level, and forms the main accommodation of 130m2. It comprises a huge open-plan living / dining / kitchen area with sea views, and two doors leading out to the large main balcony which faces north and east. Three marble steps lead up to a large landing area which serves the bedrooms and bathrooms. The spacious east bedroom enjoys pleasant sea and rural views, and is equipped with large storage cupboards. The adjacent large bathroom contains a shower cubicle, sink with large counter and mirrored cupboards, WC and bidet. Next to the bathroom, the washroom contains a sink with mirrored cupboard, WC, washing machine, clothes drier, a storage rack, and a large immersion heater providing hot water. The large west bedroom has pleasant rural views, and is equipped with large storage cupboards and air conditioning. One set of steps lead from the main balcony down to the drive, and another set of steps to the basement level.
The basement contains a large 72m2 apartment which comprises a spacious open-plan living / dining / kitchen area, a large bedroom equipped with storage cupboards, and a shower room with mirrored sink and cupboard, shower cubicle, WC and storage cupboards.
The basement also contains a double garage of 52m2 with an electrical roller door, sink, storage racks, and tiled floor; and a huge store room of 52m2 with power and light, and many storage racks.
Outside, the property has mature gardens to the north* and east, and concrete paths / stone steps to the south and west. There is space to install a 40m2 swimming pool if desired.
The property was constructed using quality materials and modern living in mind: all floors except the store room have quality tiles; aluminium double-glazed doors/windows with insect screens & shutters are fitted throughout; pipes have been laid under floors to provide winter heating if required. All furniture, fittings and tools as shown in the photographs are included with the property, so it is ready to move into. This is a good opportunity to own a large “ready-to-go” house close to beaches and facilities, with potential for rental income from the ground floor accommodation, or indeed the whole property.
*Since the house was contructed, the Greek state has appropriated the northern 7 metres of the property for possible road expansion in future. Because of the difficulty of acquiring similar land from many other houses that are less than 7m from the road, that is very unlikely to happen for perhaps fifty years, if ever. Until then, the owners of this propery can continue to use and maintain the land passively, but not construct permanent structures within it. The topographic plan (final image) shows the 7m line and a suggested location for a future 40m2 swimming pool.
