This 4-room house is part of a Venetian complex in an elevated village 18 minutes from Kissamos and 55 minutes from the beautiful city of Chania. There are shops, a bakery and tavernas in the village.
Although a neighbour’s door is inscribed with the date 1703, the local archaeology service believe that the huge Venetian arch in one of the rooms dates from around 1600.
Outside, there is a small garden with mature fruit trees (plum, pomegranate, lime, quince) and grape vines. Currently there is no parking but a small ramp could easily be cut into the garden if required. There are gorge and distant sea views from current roof level.
Rooms A, B and C are grouped together, while room D is slightly apart from them.
The property needs substantial renovation, including roof and floor replacement, electrical/plumbing, doors/windows, re-plastering and so on, and the archaeology service would have a final say on materials – but not usually to an onerous extent. It may be possible (subject to permit and archaeological permission) to expand the property up to the allowance of 240m2.
This is a challenging but exciting opportunity for someone to renovate and live in a large 400 year-old building, in a traditional Cretan mountain village but with local facilities to hand.
