This is a large renovation project for someone with the vision to restore a 1910 stone mansion to its former glory!
The property lies in a large plot inside the limits of a village just 1.5kms from a sandy beach, 5 minutes from the shops and facilities of Kissamos, and 25 minutes from the historic Venetian city of Chania. Although it is a small village, there are a couple of shops and tavernas, and it is popular with independent tourists – so one possible use for a restored building could be a boutique hotel.
The house comprises 7 rooms on the ground floor, 6 rooms on the first floor, 3 terraces, a huge courtyard and a walled garden. The main roof of the first floor has been replaced, so 4-5 rooms on the first floor are habitable in a basic fashion.
Most of the ground floor rooms were used as stores or stables and have earth floors, and need extensive renovation. However, many of the original features (stone arches, chestnut beams, etc.) remain intact, and could form beautiful highlights in a restored building. There are also three external terraces on the first floor, one with sea views.
Outside, the main courtyard contains a planted area, the remains of a store, and a patitiri used for treading grapes. A large walled garden is accessed from the courtyard. There is sufficient space for a swimming pool either in the main courtyard or in the walled garden. Between the front wall and a village road, there is space for parking for 4-5 cars. A further piece of land nearby – also useful for parking – is available by separate negotiation.
The property is accessed by a good asphalt road, and services are on site or nearby. If you are looking for a large and ultimately profitable restoration project, this could be for you – and it is available at a very reasonable price!
