These beautifully-renovated and spacious stone farm buildings are located in a quiet elevated rural hamlet, 10 minutes from the shops and beaches of Kissamos, and only 35 minutes from the lovely Venetian city of Chania. They enjoy lovely panoramic views from the north-east through to the south-east, and have been renovated with loving care using quality traditional and modern materials, with many original features retained.
The buildings are divided into 4 main areas (see final image for layout): garage and parking area, main house, upper guest suite, and completely self-contained fabrika-stavlo (factory-stable) rooms. The main house and the fabrika-stavlo have their own courtyards, and the upper guest suite has its own balcony.
The bamboo- and vine-shaded parking area and covered garage can accommodate 4 cars, and are accessed from the single hamlet road. The garage has an electric roller door, plenty of storage space and many electrical sockets.
Steps lead down through the lobby and courtyard to the main house, which comprises: a kitchen-diner with wood-burning stove; a large master bedroom with office area, spacious wardrobes and ensuite washroom; large living room with roof light; shower room with roof light; and timber stairs leading to the upper guest suite.
The upper guest suite comprises one huge timber-floored room, with panoramic eastern views, access to the roof terrace, and its own balcony with lovely views and steps down to the main courtyard.
The stone-walled main courtyard has several planting areas, a large shady mulberry tree, a vine-shaded pergola, a millstone used as a table, and lovely rural views to the east. The courtyard provides access to the main house, upper guest suite, lobby, and the fabrika-stavlo rooms.
The lobby is a light and airy covered room with original bread oven providing access to the office-store room, main courtyard, fabrika-stavlos rooms, and the garage/parking area.
The office-store is a long narrow room with a roof light above the office section, and extensive storage for maintenance materials and tools.
At the opposite end of the lobby is the entrance to the self-contained fabrika/stavlos rooms, which comprise: a kitchen with marble counter; huge living area with wood-burning stove; spacious bedroom with stone arch, WC, and separate shower room; access to main courtyard; and its own private courtyard with planting areas, mulberry tree for shade, and another millstone used as a table.
All rooms have timber ceilings, there is air conditioning in all bedrooms and there are TVs in many rooms. There are ample solar panels for hot water, plus reserve water tanks and filters, and two separate septic tanks. Everything in the house except some tools and personal souvenirs is included in the price, so it will be ready to move into. This is an excellent opportunity to own a beautiful and spacious traditional mansion for personal and/or rental accommodation, and it is offered at a very keen price!
