This large stone house has been fully restored, and lies in a quiet rural village 15 minutes from shops and beaches in Kolymbari, and 35 minutes from the Venetian city of Chania. It enjoys panoramic rural views dominated by the distant White Mountains. The village has a traditional taverna and mini market , and a small gorge nearby for those who love nature and hiking.
The house has been restored to retain many of the original stone features, and care has been taken to keep the traditional style by installing ceilings and stairs of timber. The stone walls are 50cms thick, and keep the house cool in summer and warm in winter. There are solar panels to provide hot water, and a fireplace provides welcoming warmth in winter.
On the ground floor, there is a huge living room with fireplace, stone arch, and wooden stairs to the first floor. The separate fitted kitchen with white goods and dining area is accessed through an arched door. Another arched door leads to the ground floor family bathroom. On the first floor, a large landing leads to two spacious bedrooms with fitted wardrobes and timber ceilings, another family bathroom, and a large balcony shaded by a pergola.
Outside, there is a stone-walled landscaped garden with mature plants, watering system and footpaths, and a parking space near the village road. There is ample room for a pool (optional).
The house has been restored to a high standard and is fitted with aluminium double-glazed doors, windows and shutters, underfloor pipes ready for central heating, and solar heated water. Telephone, internet, TV and satellite connections are all available.
This is a wonderful opportunity to own a beautifully restored individual home in a traditional rural village, yet live within easy distance of all facilities.
