PoolNo pool / Room for a pool
This tastefully restored stone home is unique in the Apokoronas area … and most certainly not for the majority of property seekers in Crete. It is however an ideal residence for an artist, musician, painter, or indeed anyone wishing to pursue their creative abilities in an amazingly peaceful and conducive setting.
The restoration was planned by the owner and one of the area's leading architects to take full advantage of both the indoor as well as the outdoor space on the large wooded 2,900+ sqm plot. The home itself is, to use the appropriate Greek word poly zesto, meaning very warming to the heart and mind. While not large, the rooms are rather spacious and well-suited to the land. And of course the broad veranda offers pleasant cool seating, dining, and working areas with views to the green plot as well as a pleasant view to the sea toward the east. The main living area is all on one floor with the bedroom is a cosy loft space above the sitting room. Floor plans are included in picture gallery. The original features of the home were preserved by adding a stone-built kitchen accessible via a covered portico from the sitting room.
As we have noted above, this home is not for the “normal” buyer in Crete … no pool, although there is space for a spa; no panoramic views of the sea but rather lovely and forever unobstructed views to the peaceful countryside with a pleasant albeit small sea view. Genuinely a perfect retreat! The tiny village of Likotinara is within easy walking distance and the very traditional villages of Kefalas and Vamos are just a few minutes drive.
This home offers the time and space to create alone or together, the quiet setting is highly conducive to inner knowledge and self-awareness, and the surrounding trees and plot space, running right down to the bottom of the gorge, are yours to enjoy or work on or just offer its natural beauty without asking for anything in return.
The selling price includes all white goods and most of the furniture and fittings. Property transfer tax, legal expenses and agency fees are not included in the selling price.
