This charming and very liveable three-bedroom bungalow is situated just a short walk from the Fres village plateia. Located in a very quiet and peaceful area off the main road, it offers the opportunity to enjoy the traditional village serenity that Crete is known for. Completed in 2008, the home has been perfectly maintained and landscaped. The home offers forever unobstructed views to the nearby White Mountains and surrounding countryside as well as toward the Akrotiri peninsula.
The spacious open plan sitting room and dining area has an energy-efficient closed fireplace for cozy winter nights plus two ceiling fans for the occasional warm mid-summer days. French doors open to the covered poolside veranda and outdoor dining/relaxing area. A large separate kitchen is complete with plenty of fitted cupboards and storage space.
Each of the three large bedrooms opens onto its own veranda with the master bedroom opening directly to the 35 sqm tiled swimming pool. Air-conditioning has been installed in each of the bedrooms. There are two bathrooms, one complete with a full bath plus bidet and the other a shower room. Each has plenty of storage space.
An external staircase at the rear of the home leads to a fully tiled rooftop terrace offering fantastic panoramic views. A further 63 sqm of building density is available and this could be used to make a fine covered veranda / outdoor dining area on the rooftop terrace.
